The term "stress" was introduced by canadian scientist Hans Selye, borrowing it from the strength of materials. Stress is pressure, tension caused due to the impact of the environment on an object and means of fatigue of the material caused by this stress. Since then, the word "stress" has become an international means a certain psychophysical state of a person. Can long to attempt to define "stress", but one thing you can say for sure that "stress" is a state opposite of peace.So, what is stress?
Stress is adaptive reaction of the organism to changes in the environment to which the organism was not ready.
Stress is necessary. They teach organisms to adapt to new, often extreme situations, help to survive, mobilizing their forces, enrich the new experience.
First and foremost, on a strong signal answer the nerves in our body, for which this signal is transmitted to the brain. The brain processes the information, decides on responses and, again the nerves, the command is sent to certain bodies.
As strong stimulus stimulates the pituitary gland, which secretes adrenocorticotropic hormone. This hormone along with blood entering the adrenal gland, encourages them to release of adrenaline, which in turn stimulate the heart, increase blood pressure and stress of large muscles. The body is ready or to flee from danger or to fight.
The same Hans Selye observed that stress causes three reactions to prolonged exposure to:1.
mobilization of all reserves of the psyche. The body rebels against negative emotions.2.
addictive, i.e. resistance to stress.
And if the load continues, the3.
nervous and physical exhaustion, which causes a sharp weakening of the whole organism.
(For example, try to clench your fist as hard as you can and stay like that for a while. Soon You find that a clenched fist usual state and it can stretch even more, etc.)
To stress first of all respond to our vessels, their walls are narrowing and vasospasm at the time of extreme nervous tension can lead to a sharp increase in blood pressure, disruption of cardiac activity or even cardiac arrest.
For example, a stomach ulcer or 12-duodenal ulcer caused by the pressure of the whole body, which causes spasm of blood vessels in the walls of the stomach and local violation of blood circulation of the mucous membrane. Dropping her resistance to increased secretion of gastric juice and its acidity. Gastric juice irritates the mucous membrane, so there is ulcer.Under the influence of any stress, the brain releases into the blood a stress hormone that prolonged exposure leads to the disruption of:
Often people in a state of stress behave as if they do not breathe:
- Heart (tachycardia, increase of ADD, stroke, heart attack)
- Gallbladder, liver
- The digestive tract (stomach ulcers and 12-duodenal ulcer, indigestion, irritation of the colon)
- Adrenal gland (adrenaline)
- Genital organs in women (blockade of ovulation, menstrual cycle, infertility on the basis of nervous or mental disorder, inflammation of the bladder)
- Men have (difficulty with erection, decreased activity of sperm, premature ejaculation)
- Skin (eczema, hives, psoriasis, acne)
take deep breaths, yawn. The reason for this is the dysfunction of the diaphragm, which can be seen on x-ray, if to provoke the patient's stress as some unpleasant conversation.
Prolonged stress lowers the body's resistance to disease. Immune system responsible for mobilizing the body's defenses, weakening. In the blood decreases the number of lymphocytes needed to combat bacteria, viruses,
Increases the risk of disease and even death. The most dangerous weakening of the immune system found in humans, is experiencing a strong connection with death of loved ones.Emotional effects of stress — anxiety, sleep disturbance, memory and ability to focus.

Medicine believes stress is a physiological phenomenon, something resembling a spasm of the blood vessels, we would feel sudden palpitations, heaviness in the stomach, dry throat, muscle tension. When stress becomes permissible limits, can become seriously ill.
