    • Pancreas: Increased Glucagon
    • Decreases in
    • reproductive and growth hormones

    • Increased ACTH blocks Interferon which then reduces responsiveness of White Blood Cells
  • 5. And long term…
    • Decreases in Nerve Growth Factor: Brain cells die, Depression, Stroke
    • Damage to “fear circuitry” of brain
    • Impaired focusing, processing of information, problem solving
    • Heart Disease
    • Hypertension
    • Irregular heartbeat
    • Atherosclerosis

    Decreased Glucocorticoids Decreased Sympathetic Decreased Autonomic
    • “ Recharges Battery” of Immune System
    • ?Enhancements of Immune system using relaxation techniques?
    You have told your brain there is no current threat so neurochemistry can re-stabilize
  • 7. This is your body angry, or even resentful
    • Narrows focus of attention
