  • Maladaptive behavior is a type of behavior that is often used to reduce one's anxiety, but the result is dysfunctional and non-productive. For example, avoiding situations because you have unrealistic fears may initially reduce your anxiety, but it is non-productive in alleviating the actual problem in the long term. Maladaptivity is frequently used as an indicator of abnormality or mental dysfunction, since its assessment is relatively free from subjectivity. However, many behaviors considered moral can be apparently maladaptive, such as dissent or abstinence.

    2. 2. Background: 1. Cortisol is a hormone produced by your body in response to difficult events. 2. The occasional release of cortisol is essential to respond to emergency situations. Too frequent release of cortisol can lead to health problems.
    3. 3. 1980’s = Cholesterol  Early 1990’s = Free Radicals / Antioxidants Later 1990’s = Insulin / Blood Sugar    2000s= Cortisol
    4. 4.  1,000 News Articles published over the last 7 months.  October 2013: A staggering 423,000,000 million websites.
    5. 5.  The body’s primary stress hormone: ◦ “Fight-or-Flight” response – Normal Stress Response ◦ Required by the body for survival ◦ Regulates inflammation, carbohydrate metabolism, cardiovascular function, etc…  BUT too much of cortisol for too long leads to problems: ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ Repeated exposure to stressful situations (personal, family, work) Modern stressors do not permit “fight-or-flight” Stress hormones do not dissipate Stress can lead to degenerative health consequences
    6. 6. Yikes!!!!! A Stress Occurs B Stress Response end and stress hormones dissipate Stress response begins in the brain (lots of chemistry) C Fight or Flight
    7. 7. A Yikes!!!!! Yikes!!!!! Stress Occurs E Stress is killing us D B Stress response continues, and stress hormones lead to tissue damage Stress response begins in the brain (lots of chemistry) C Modern Stressor do not permit fight or flight
    8. 8. Cortisol Index Total Score Type C Index Comments 0-5 points Relaxed Jack (Lower risk, no worries) You are cool as a cucumber and have either a very low level stress or a tremendous ability to deal effectively with incoming stressors. Keep doing whatever you are doing! 6-10 points Strained Jane (Moderate risk) You may be suffering from an overactive stress response and chronically elevated levels of cortisol and should incorporate anti stress strategies into your lifestyle whenever possible – but don’t stress out about it. Greater than 10 points Stressed Jess (High risk) You are almost definitely suffering from an overactive stress response, chronically elevated levels of cortisol, and its detrimental metabolic effects – and you need to take immediate steps to regain control.

    12. 12. Loss of Muscle Mass: 1. 2. 3. 4. Breakdown of muscles, tendons and ligaments Decrease synthesis of protein Reduced levels of DHEA, Testosterone, growth hormone, IGF -1 & Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Drop in basal metabolic rate
    13. 13. Increase in Blood Sugar Levels 1. 2. 3. Reduced transport of glucose into cells Decrease insulin sensitivity = More Insulin Resistance. Increase in appetite and carbohydrates craving.
    14. 14. Increase in Body Fat 1. Increase in the overall amount of body fat (due to increased appetite, overeating and reduced metabolic rate) 1. An accumulation of body fat in abdominal region
    15. 15. What is Testosterone? 1. Helps build muscles & other tissues, skin, tendons, bones immune-systems components. 2. Controls aspects of Physiology including blood cells productions and metabolism of protein carbs and fats from food.
