Burnout and stress

Stress is something the body has to defend itself against.

Stress always requires energy.

Positive stress just means no emotional stress.

Chronic stress damages the immune system and accelerates the aging process.

There are different definitions of stress:
– Any form of stress that forces the organism to adapt (Schandry).
– Stress is the challenge for the body to adapt to an environmental change.
– Energy is required to return from allostasis (physiological imbalance) to homeostasis (physiological balance).
– The stress signal is mediated via various cascades (neurotransmitters, stress hormones, heart rate, blood pressure, etc.)

Causes of stress:
– Overstimulation (media, communication)
– Social overload (job, environment, family) – Leisure stress (extreme sports, travel stress)
– Toxin exposure (nicotine, medications, caffeine, exhaust fumes, additives)

Gastrointestinal disorders are common side effects of stressful and anxiety situations. Chronic stress destroys the intestinal flora. Stress extinguishes the digestive fire, makes you cold and sterile.

The permanent activation of the nervous system as a result of constant stress leads over time to “vegetative fatigue” (vegetative nervous system – autonomic nervous system) and, as a result, to profound exhaustion or burnout.

The burnout cycle according to Freudenberger and North describes 12 phases of a burnout illness:

Stage 1 – The need to prove yourself Stage
2 – Increased use Stage
3 – Subtle neglect of your own needs Stage
4 – Repression of conflicts and needs Stage
5 – Reinterpretation of values Stage
6 – Increased denial of the problems that arise Stage
7 – Withdrawal Stage
8 – Observable behavior change Stage
9 – Loss of sense of one’s own personality Stage
10 – Inner emptiness Stage
11 – Depression Stage
12 – Complete Burnout – Exhaustion

Burnout – endocrine consequences of constant stress Loss of strength, drive, performance, motivation, libido, depression, pessimism, sleep problems, irritability, cognitive deficits.

Stress management strategy

– Identify stressors
– Significantly reduce stressors and, if possible, avoid them
– Learn to deal with stressors (e.g. relaxation training)
– Create compensation for stress (e.g. sporting activity)
– Therapy/coaching

If the cells do not produce enough energy, they cannot provide sufficient performance. Therefore, for example, support for microorganisms that nourish the cells. Depending on the severity, it takes 3 – 9 months until the physical depots are replenished.

“Burnout syndrome” is the result of long-term, constant tension.

Burnout is a serious physical injury.

Burnout – hospital stay, micronutrients, therapy
