Ligament health and adrenal gland stress

Adrenal gland stress effects joint health

Adrenal glands and ligament health

Excess cortisol can weaken you ligaments and create injuries

One of the greatest health issues of our day is functional adrenal gland stress because your adrenal glands are the back up system for your body, for the reason that when you are under stress they supply you with hormones that help you to keep going.

Types of adrenal gland stress:

  • Structural = Misalignment of joints, muscle pulls, trigger points, arthritis
  • Chemical = Toxic fumes, food additives, food allergies, refined sugar, infection
  • Emotional = Type “A” personality or being “High strung”, worry, fear, anxiety, mental and emotional abuse
  • Thermal = Extended periods of being too cold or hot, alternating extremes of too cold or hot.

Adrenal Gland Cortex Hormones:

  • Pregnenolone
  • Progesterone
  • DHEA
  • Testosterone
  • Estrogen
  • Aldosterone
  • Cortisone
  • Cortisol

You may of heard of some of the above hormones, they are pretty important. Many people have them artificially supplied by doctors when they have health issues, rather the holistic thing to do is to get your adrenal glands working properly again because the wisdom of your body knows better than any doctor precisely what hormones you need, at what time, and how much.

Sorry… back to the ligaments!

Excess stress that is not resolved over a long period of time causes prolonged secretion of cortisol which can break down you ligaments. This can lead to injuries and chronic joint problems. A simple stretch to a joint can cause a “ligament stretch reaction” as show in this video.

What can you do to stop this?

In cases like this your adrenal glands need to be brought out of their alarm reaction state. This can be done by finding what the stresses are in your life, removing them, and helping your body to regain it’s original balance.

With treatment from a doctor using kinesiological testing, you will need to see what reflexes may need to be treated, what supplementation you may need to rebalance your body and what structural imbalances need to be corrected.

You will also need to be doing the eating right diet because your adrenal glands can not heal while you are eating refined sugars, foods that you are sensitive to, and not snacking regularly to keep blood sugar levels stable.

When healing your adrenal glands, they may recover quickly (a few weeks) but sometimes, if your are well into the “Exhaustion” stage of the adrenal stress it may not be that easy. Therefore it can take a few years to fully recover. Certainly a well trained doctor using Applied Kinesiology is one of the fastest ways to adrenal health.
