Stress hormones: cortisol and adrenaline

Stress hormones

Stress is a biological response to difficult situations. This causes the body to release hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones help prepare the body for action by raising the heart rate and breathing rate, creating an increased state of alertness or arousal. This response to certain situations is designed to protect you from threats from predators, whether physical or psychological.

But how can you lower your cortisol levels if you have chronic stress? Obviously, to reduce the number of stressful situations, and for a faster and more effective recovery, contact us at MC Altimed.

What is adrenaline and cortisol?

Cortisol is the main stress hormone released by the adrenal cortex whenever you are stressed. If you are chronically stressed, your body constantly releases a hormone.

Consistently high cortisol is very bad for your cognitive and physical health, as well as your well-being. However, in the short term, the release of cortisol is very beneficial and serves as a form of protection for your body.

Chronically elevated cortisol levels are especially damaging to your brain. In such cases, the hormone damages areas in the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for learning and memory.

Elevated cortisol levels also carry with it sleep problems and markedly impaired sleep quality. This is because too much cortisol keeps you awake in the evening, and at night leads to a situation where you are in a constant state of alertness.

Adrenaline is a substance that is produced in the adrenal medulla, as well as in some neurons of the central nervous system. Within a few minutes during a stressful situation, adrenaline is rapidly released into the bloodstream, sending impulses to the organs to create a certain reaction.

Adrenaline is usually released when we are in a stressful situation; it is said to regulate our fight-or-flight terms. When we are faced with a situation that causes us stress, this hormone rushes to some parts of our body, causing us to react, this is called an adrenaline rush. For example, a dry throat during public speaking or a fast heartbeat in a frightening situation are all due to the release of the hormone adrenaline. When stress gradually subsides, its effects are neutralized by nore-adrenaline, the body’s hormone.

These two hormones perform many important tasks in the body. For example, in stressful situations, they prepare you to be at the top of their game. Hormones also help the brain use glucose as an energy source. In short, cortisol improves your performance. If you need to perform well in a difficult situation, the stress hormones norepinephrine and adrenaline are quickly released first. This is followed by the release of cortisol. The combination of these hormones increases heart rate, blood pressure, and many other effects. Basically, cortisol activates you in difficult situations. Read on to find out how to lower cortisol.

I found out about the center on the Internet. I was interested in an unusual type of diagnosis, a food test and its price, which is lower than in other centers. As it turned out, the test was not by blood, but by hardware, without pain. On the same day I received a result and a doctor’s consultation. I try to feed on it, I test it so to speak. More about the results later.

I applied to Altimed in the summer of 2020, with my mother. Problems like all elderly people – high blood pressure, swelling, dizziness, arthritis. Vision deteriorated, noisy in my ears. She drank so many pills that it was possible to replace the normal diet. I took a course of 10 sessions, another month later. I didn’t believe it – the portion of the medicine was halved (!!!), my sleep improved, the edema subsided. The pressure stopped jumping.
