Double Trouble - Insomnia and Stress


We have three stores of energy - physical, mental and emotional. They can borrow from one another, but when they are all drained - by worry and overwork, anxiety, a severe shock or trauma, illness or injury, and in particular, a lack of sleep - there is only one immediately available source of energy left to call upon - adrenaline (epinephrine).

Our adrenal glands produce adrenaline on demand to provide a burst of energy, to keep us awake and alert, or to help us respond to a threat or challenge by causing the body to release glucose (sugar) into the blood and to prepare itself for action by increasing our breathing and heartrate, as well as other physiological changes.

The adrenal glands and the brain also produce a similar hormone, noradrenaline, which reinforces the action of adrenaline.

As the 'state of emergency' continues, cortisol, the 'stress hormone', is produced by the adrenal glands, putting the body into overdrive. Cortisol production is slower, but this hormone remains active for far longer and is responsible for many of the health-challenging features of stress, including elevated blood pressure, increased calorific absorption from our food, and high levels of blood sugar.

The adrenal 'Fight or Flight' reaction is automatic, and exists to ensure our survival. But each successive challenge demands additional energy, and without sufficient sleep to allow us to recharge our batteries and stabilise our emotions, we slide deeper into fatigue and our ability to think, feel and behave rationally is progressively impaired.

This is the reality of Stress - a threat to mental and physical health, relationships and personal happiness.

Stress - Its Symptoms and Effects

When stress continues unrelieved, memory, concentration and rational thought are affected. Anxiety and tension increase, leading to more worry and chronic sleep loss (stress-related insomnia is a recognised factor in depression). Fears and phobias become magnified, along with irrational anger and impatience. Desire for stimulants, sugar and alcohol increases.

A special case is post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a debilitating condition experienced following a severe mental or physical trauma, or a cumulative series of traumatic events; the sufferer experiencing the same complex of mental/emotional stress symptoms, in some cases accompanied by feelings of guilt and grief, plus sudden peaks of anxiety and memory flashbacks to the traumatising event or events, further affecting their sleep and daily life. (See Help For Practitioners, below.)

Physical effects of stress include headaches and migraines, bowel discomfort (IBS) and aggravation of allergic symptoms. Blood pressure and heart rate are raised. The blood sugar-insulin balance is disturbed, and as stress and insomnia become increasingly chronic, the body's immunity (resistance to disease) is weakened.

And when adrenalin and cortisol levels are already high, the production of more adrenalin can trigger hyperventilation (overbreathing) and feelings of panic as our bodily responses seem to overwhelm us, sometimes mimicking the physical sensations of a heart attack.

Fortunately, help is available, a special treatment created to relieve anxiety and insomnia, and reduce the symptoms and effects of stress.

A Special Treatment For Prevention & Relief

Over many years in professional practice, it was clear that the best and most effective treatments for almost all problems were those which also helped people to reduce and manage their stress levels by restoring regular healthy sleep habits and, through learning the art of mindfulness and positive thinking, acquiring new skills of calmness and relaxation to put them back in control of their own lives.

However, not everyone would wish to seek (often expensive) personal assistance from a stranger. With that in mind, I have combined some of the most effective methods and techniques into a special treatment accessible to everyone, to provide support and help people safely and discreetly overcome anxiety, insomnia, tension and stress with the minimum of effort, so as not to place further demands upon already stretched mental and physical resources.

Guided Mindfulness Meditation

That treatment is presented as a Guided Mindfulness Meditation, The Calmest Place. A slightly different version, modified specially to treat insomnia, is The Calmest Place To Sleep. They can be used individually or in combination. For best results, both versions are designed to be used daily if possible.
