A low level flight or fight response to stress and negative emotions can create tension anywhere in the body. This tension produces a condition, Tension-Based Pain, which when left unchecked, can wreak havoc on every muscle, organ, tissue in the body and even bones.
The pain comes from a lack of blood flow and oxygen to muscles and tissues due to the sustained tension. In the case of stomach pain, IBS, Crohn's disease, even illnesses like interstitial cystitis, these organs, which are made of what is called smooth muscle, will cramp and eventually cause bleeding and or other damage.
When we ignore our reactions to stress and negative emotions, we do it at the peril of physical health, as well as our mental health.
Very surprising health outcomes can be initiated from even modest changes in our ability to fully relax our muscles, and manage how we react to stress.
Personally, I overcame 20 years of low-back pain in a matter of weeks with some simple relaxation exercises. It can happen for almost anyone.
Anyone who has a medical problem should see a Healthcare Professional to rule out organic issues, such as infection or cancer.
