ESSENTIAL NUTRITION TO THE RESCUE
Essential nutrient elements are just that for your body – ESSENTIAL!!
Even though most of them are in your body only in very small amounts, they perform vital functions to keep your body working properly. And they all have optimum levels within which they can best help you. When these elements get out of their optimum levels, they can have adverse effects as well. One of the things that can push these nutrient elements, that are so essential, out of BALANCE, is stress, smoking, poor nutrition and poor health where ESSENTIAL uptake is compromised.
What Happens Essential Nutrition Under Stress?
When something comes into your life that brings stress, no matter what the event is, your body responds the same way every time. Your adrenals directly effect a cascade of several hormones, the major one being cortisol, to fight the effects of stress on your body. The adrenal glands secrete cortisol in an effort to stop stress from tearing down your body. If the stress stops, your body returns to normal. However, much of the time, stress continues. This pushes your adrenals to continue secreting cortisol until at some point, they no longer can do so. This is the condition known as Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (AFS). At its worst, AFS brings on a set of sometimes nonspecific symptoms that cause a great deal of discomfort. Symptoms such as:
- Gaining weight around your waist
- Catching every ‘bug’ that comes around
- Feeling tired even after a good night’s sleep
- Craving certain foods
- Being ‘wired and tired’ at bedtime
- Developing hypoglycemia
- Foggy thinking
- Depression and anxiety
These symptoms are more typically the end result of continuing stress that leads to the depletion of your adrenal glands, the loss of hormones, and imbalance of the essential nutrient elements.
How does smoking affect Essential Nutrition
Nicotine totally compromises your Immunity and gut functioning by literally stunting its potential. Good essential nutrition is minimised and with this all good uptake culminating into a double negative effect on the body. No matter how you smoke it, tobacco is dangerous to your health. There are no safe substances in any tobacco products, from acetone and tar to nicotine and carbon monoxide. The substances you inhale don’t just affect your lungs. They can affect your entire body.
Smoking can lead to a variety of ongoing complications in the body, as well as long-term effects on your body systems. Nicotine and the toxic substances found in cigarette smoke also have a huge impact on the detoxification process of the body. Smoking causes cell damage, which leads to diseases such as cancer, high cholesterol levels, coronary and circulatory problems, respiratory disorders and an increased risk of osteoporosis.
Smoking drains the body of many essential vitamins and minerals, affecting your ability to absorb these vital nutrients. Vitamin C is one of the body’s main antioxidants. Antioxidants are linked to the prevention of a number of diseases. Vitamin C also helps you to absorb iron. Low levels of vitamin C are linked to a lack of iron. The more you smoke, the more vitamin C you lose from your tissues and blood. But your body needs more vitamin C to counteract the damage that smoking causes to your cells.
How does Medication affect Essential Nutrition
When the body is already in a compromised position EVERY body system is compromised and the result is often ‘let’s treat the symptom’!! All of this is well in emergencies but not the solution in chronic cases – we need to get to the route of the problems, since chronic medications severely affect nutritional uptake and only allow for other symptoms to be affected which merely result in more medications. And so the damage continues. The result? MORE MEDS!! And this is not the solution at all.
Medications have become an integral part of life for many people. Medicine serves to help people when they are sick, allowing them to live longer and healthier lives. With rapidly growing research and technology, medications are more beneficial, and new ones continue to be discovered. Drugs do need to be taken with caution, however. All medications, whether prescribed by a doctor or bought over-the-counter, are capable of harmful side effects. The foods people eat contain nutrients that are used by the body to produce energy. Sometimes, certain medications may interact with both the food eaten and the nutrients the food gives to the body for proper functioning. When the body is unable to use a nutrient due to a drug that has been taken, a nutrient-drug interaction has occurred.
Quite simply, it is ALWAYS best to stop smoking and quit with the help of your health adviser all chronic meds as the nutritional/supplementation deficits are managed within a healthy lifestyle to reverse all symptoms and or conditions. Stress as a rule is a lot harder to deal with but not impossible to manage.
The answer however always lies with good NATURAL nutrition where 100% absorption is facilitated from a healthy gut perspective. And this is the speciality area for the Imsyser Health Product range. The products will not only facilitate good gut functional uptake as indicated below:
