What is Stress and why is it important? 

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:00:06] Stress.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:00:07] Stress. Yeah, so the reason why we wanted to bring stress up again is because, yeah, we are entering, you know, the different time of year again, our environment is changing. Things are getting a little bit colder out. And so it does tend to be a more stressful time of year for people when the environment switches will also be falling back an hour in a couple of weeks. And so that’s another thing that’s on people’s minds. Hate it. And we’ll also be heading into the holiday season. And so it comes fast. Once you hit November, we’re basically getting ready for the holidays.

That was the whole reason why we started Hump Day at that time and we approached it with this topic at this time last year. If you’re not familiar with stress already, stress is a normal reaction that the body has when changes occur, resulting in physical, emotional and intellectual responses, right? The changes can come in many different forms. As I said, you know, the change in temperature, the change in environment can have an impact on your body’s ability to adapt to that. The body will process all the stressful information and then elicit either a positive or a negative response, depending on the degree of the stressful stimulus.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:01:27] Yeah. And you got to say there’s a certain amount of stress that’s a good amount of stress. You know, the type of stress that you know gets a project done, you know, gets you across the finish line. It’s that stress never going away. That becomes a problem, only when we talk about the two different types of stress being acute and chronic. You know, if the acute stress doesn’t go away, we start to call it chronic. And, you know, like it’s almost like you can run 100 meters. But if you’re asked to run another 400 meters, the body starts to fatigue. So we’re OK for short bursts.

They have to be followed by a period of rest and restoration and allow the body to adapt further so that you’re ready for your next episode. So, you know, we recognize sometimes that, you know, people say, Well, you have to live a balanced life. I think there’s no such thing as a balanced life. I think we have periods of time where we’re unbalanced, balanced by periods of time that we are balanced, right? So I don’t think balance means that we’re balanced every hour of the day. But I think there’s periods of time where we’re running and there’s periods of time where we’re jogging and walking like, I had a good example, you know, talk with my, you know, my accountant who come in and, you know, they’re busy flat out from January to June.

Then from June to December, they’re not as busy. So there’s balance in the sense that it’s six months busy, six months not busy, but during January to June period, they’re very busy. They’re really out of balance. So if you look at it really vocally, you could say that that’s not a balanced routine, but you have to put it through the week. So what I tell people is that don’t get caught up too much in the balance short term, but balance over the long term. And if you do that, then the stress load is not going to be as high to be able to adapt a little bit better.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:03:17] Right? Just speaking on the two types of stress summarize, you can have an acute stressor, right? This is like giving a speech, right? That will definitely really heighten you up and you might get a little nervous. The heart rate will go up, breathing rate goes up.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:03:31] When did you think?

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:03:32] Yeah, exactly. Bungee jumping. But then, you know, once that stressor is over, the heart rate will regulate. The body goes back to its regular. It uses a process called homeostasis to bring it back and balance like Dr Roach was talking about earlier. However, when you have chronic stressors, the body doesn’t get the chance to return back to that homeostatic state, so you either stay on one side or the other side, whether it be to heighten and arouse, which is what happens for most people or not enough stress.

That’s basically because not all stressors are bad. Some stressors are good because the body needs that change. It needs to be stressed a little bit in order to get stronger. That’s the whole reason why we would go out and perform some physical activity and exercise. We want to stress the body in order to build more muscle mass.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:04:27] Yeah. And huge women to rate like women that are going through hormonal changes. And, you know, our risks are at risk of having osteoporosis that stress on the bone. I mean, you know, you go into a pool and you’re swimming. There’s not a lot of resistance there, right? So you have to do some weight-bearing activity stressing the joint so that you’re able to maintain that bone density. So not all stress is created equal.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:04:53] Absolutely. And so stress can present differently in everyone, right? As we know it’s multifactorial and we’ll be talking about the different types of stressors tonight. But you know, you can present stress with aches and pains, you know, chest pain or feeling like your heart is racing, of course, because you’re in that fight or flight situation, exhaustion, trouble sleeping right, you’re held awake. Headaches can come out of it. High blood pressure from the heart racing. Also, we talk about a weakened immune system and solve the body is stressed and you’re constantly in the state. Your body is essentially working against you at that point. And so we’ll be talking a little bit about the importance of lowering the stress levels tonight and why it’s beneficial.

Physical Stress and spinal health! 

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:05:41] So let’s talk about physical stress, Ben. We know that there’s three different types of stress. The first one is the physical stress. And I’ll just kind of table this conversation. We talk a little bit about a little bit further. But I feel, you know. I see physical stress, that’s something that’s never going to go away, right? Because, you know, the reality is if you’re at a job where your job is to sit at a computer all day long and it’s repetitive, so it doesn’t have to be sitting at a computer all day long, it could be, you know, sitting in a car all day long. It could be standing all day long.

But that repetitiveness of our day forces our joints to move the same way all the time and unfortunately, the same joints to move because you’re using the same joints all the time. That just doesn’t go away, right? You can’t, you know, not everybody can say, Well, you know, I don’t like my job is there’s physical stress, I’m going to retire. So I had this discussion with a patient today. I said, Look, if we’re looking at your teeth and you’re going to continue to eat and you know, at times not bad a thousand on your healthy diet, you’re going to need some sugar.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:06:52] That’s the stress we call that chemical stress. Well, in order to maintain the integrity of your teeth, you need to brush your teeth accordingly. So if you’re eating more sugar, you’re going to eat yours. You’re going to brush your teeth a little bit more. In terms of the thick of the physical stress, we need to take into account how much physical stress our body is under, right? We do the same thing Ben when we’re taking on a treatment plan. What is this person exposed to on a regular basis that has to come into play when we’re doing a treatment plan?

So what do you do? You know, it’s not going to go away, so you have to mitigate the risk of that stress taking over the body by doing things that are going to combat that stress and the ability of that stress to take over. So we have to do everything we can to allow our body to adapt easier. And, Reese, you know, the likelihood of it being able to adapt to the stress that we’re exposed to, in this case, physical stress. So let’s talk about that in terms of what we can do for that.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:07:50] Yeah. And so that’s when chiropractic comes into play, right? So reducing the amount of tension on the joints by adjusting the segments that are under the most amount of physical stress. For example, if you’re looking at the picture to the right there, you can see that the individual is perched in front of their computer. There’s a huge kyphosis through the neck, which is putting a physical stressor on the segments of the back, putting it in a position where if it doesn’t get the proper nourishment and the proper movement, it could potentially lead to an injury, right?

We want to be able to protect that spine by adjusting it and taking it into a position where the least amount of stress is on the spine. The way that I see physical stress is very similar to something called environmental stress. So that’s why I have the plant to the left.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:08:43] Now why is the plant there?

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:08:44] So the plant is there because the environment has to be conducive for the plant to grow. If the environment and the chemistry of the physical environment aren’t enough for the plant to grow, then the plant will suffer or it will grow in a way that we didn’t want it to grow, that we didn’t plan for it to grow. You want to be able to produce an environment that will lead to the growth and health of that plant. And so the same thing is said for the growth of the spine. Now, what if it’s in an environment that isn’t conducive to its growth? What can we do to help create a better environment so that that plant grows the way that we want?

And so that’s where you can kind of compare apples to apples to the physical environment of the worker to the right. So the environment that he’s working in isn’t necessarily an environment that’s going to be healthiest for their for spine. And so we have to be able to find a way to make it so that that spine is more resilient in that environment and we would do the same thing for the plant.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:09:51] But I like that. And the plan has to be resilient to external circumstances like a dry season, you know, like crops, right? And there’s too much rain and there’s too much this, and there’s too much that our body is exposed to the same environmental stimulus or stimuli that forces our body to react and how your body reacts is going to be, you know, for survival, right? So how much we are nervous system stresses to survive is equal to the impact it’s going to have negatively on our on our health. So the more that we can do to help mitigate the stressors. I had a great conversation today. One of my patients was saying that, you know, he works standing most of the time as a stand up desk, and he says, you know, I work better standing.

But he says, obviously after a while, you know, my lower back hurts, and he’s got one of those deep curves in the lower back. So he’s hyper lordotic. We would call and I said, Well, you know, we’ll just call him John said, John, what you can do is when you’re standing at a desk, just have a little bit of a step stool that you can kind of alternate putting one leg on the stool and then you alternate to the other one and you go back and forth. So that’s a great idea. I said, Well, the reason it’s a good idea is because I came up with it. I’m just.

The reason it’s a good idea is because when you’re putting one leg up, you’re sending the pelvis into flexion. Right? He’s got a big curve. So he’s always an extension. By putting one leg up, then he’s taken the pressure, the load off the lower back. We’re dissipating the forces so that they’re not centered around one area. That’s. Really, the dysfunctional area in his lower back. Again, there are little tips and tricks that you can do to help reduce the amount of stress within your environment, whatever that environment might be.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:11:41] Yeah, like that’s kind of like putting a, you know if we’re talking back about the plant, right? So you’re putting the kind of like one of those sticks off to the side and tying it around the plant. So that stays nice and straight, and it doesn’t fall over and eventually lead to a to the death of that plant. And so a similar way you’re trying to create a better environment for the individual to succeed. And so these are examples of physical stress and not all physical stressors are bad, like we need some physical stress to increase the health of our bodies, right?

If we want to improve cardiovascular health, what do we do? You go out for a walk, we go for a run. We’re stressing our bodies. We’re getting our lungs breathing, we’re upping our heart rate. The same thing can be said for when we’re working out, right? We want to build more muscle mass. We’re going to have to stress that system a little bit to get those muscles to grow. Yeah.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:12:36] Yeah, no, I think what stress comes growth, right, like it’s anything and it’s pervasive among many different examples in life, you know? I used to get stressed, you know, during exam time, right? But what the stress caused me to do? Study a little bit more. So I got stressed less so that I was more prepared. Well, you know, as you study more, you learn more. And you know, I think stress is a good thing as long as it pushes you over the edge a little bit, but just not letting it get chronic.

Like again, you know, the two types of stress are acute and chronic. You know, you might be able to get away from, you know, a dog that’s running after you, but you know you won’t keep up with them for over two or three hundred meters, right? So at one point, you need little breaks here and there, hence the balance throughout the long term. All right. Emotional stress.

Emotional Stress and physical health!

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:13:25] Yeah, so emotional stress is from our environment. These are the things that are thought up in our minds of situations that possibly happened in the past, right? And so a lot of people will oftentimes get stressed about how well did I. Did I say the right thing back there? Did I do that? And then you oftentimes will catch yourself, or it can be about a situation that that you were in or maybe you were a part of or you heard about. Some people get very stressed about their family situations, their family dynamics, or maybe what’s going on between themselves and a friend or their girlfriend, et cetera, boyfriend.

Emotional stress can manifest in many different ways. I want to talk a little bit a little bit about the science of the release of a hormone called cortisol. This hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis is all up in the brain here. When you start to feel this emotional stress, this is the area of the brain that releases this catecholamine called cortisol and cortisol is the main glucocorticoid released from that gland, and it will increase your heart rate. It’ll increase your breathing rate and it’ll make your extremities really cold.

Maybe you’re someone who when you get really nervous, you’ll get very, very cold hands and it’s excess. Release can lead to different types of diseases such as Cushing’s disease, cortical insufficiency, Addison’s disease. And so there’s a lot of things that can happen when we’re emotionally stressed. And when someone tells you that they’re stressed, you know you can. You can certainly tell the physical manifestations are right there on their face.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:15:14] Yes. I think with, you know, emotional stress. I just had a comment there for somebody who said, you know, it’s true and we worry about things that haven’t happened yet. Right. So we can’t calm our brains down. The thing with cortisol, cortisol is basically the hormone that wakes us up in the morning. The cortisol is at its highest during the morning. So when cortisol starts to peak during the night, those are the type of people that wake up in the middle of the night, right?

There are two types of sleeping issues the people that can’t fall asleep and the people that wake up in the middle of the night multiple times. Usually, the reason people wake up in the middle of the night is that their cortisol speaks or speaks spikes at various times during the night. So it’s hard when the cortisol spikes to calm back down, which is why a lot of times people wake up in the middle of the night and they’ve got a hard time falling asleep again. So cortisol is very important. It’s not a bad hormone, right? But the side effects of too much cortisol as a result of too much uncontrolled stress over a chronic period of time.

You know you got to look at the whole story, right? So you can just say, well, you have too much cortisol, and that’s bad because cortisol is a good thing. But what’s happening to drive that cortisol through that hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis and how everything is kind of going from one to the other because you can get caught in that whole vicious cycle of not sleeping stress? Stress causes you not to sleep. You know you don’t sleep, you get stressed and then you’re caught into that pattern. That’s really hard to get out of. And then you basically go to bed worried that you’re not going to be able to fall asleep. Well, what does that do? Well, you don’t fall asleep, right? So that’s a tough cycle to be in.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:17:06] Yeah. And when your when your cortisol is speaking to you, right, when it’s sort of yelling at you at these different points in time, we had a conversation in the past about sleep and the importance of getting into a healthy routine. And so one of the best ways to help regulate your hormones is to try to switch things up and do the same things, do some healthy routines during the day, or at least plan your day out. So in that way, you’re running into less unexpected things and you can expect a little bit more out of your day. So different ways to sort of lead to that.

Another reason why cortisol isn’t necessarily great is because it’s pro-inflammatory, and so it causes inflammation and that inflammatory response in that process, which can definitely make your pains, your aches and pains much more apparent. And so trying to reduce the amount of stress hormone cortisol in the blood is crucial in someone’s ability to heal and ultimately overcome that big stressor.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:18:10] Yeah, I mean, we’ve talked about the importance of calming down the inflammation in your body and the effect inflammation can have. So it’s no wonder when people are stressed they don’t feel great, right? When they don’t feel great, they don’t exercise because it hurts. And when they don’t exercise, they don’t get rid of some of their stress. Again, another example of a vicious, vicious cycle. Managing the inflammation is very good. And then there are other things that can come into play as well as your diet, right? So we can hit. Usually, emotional stress is going to be a multifactorial thing in terms of treatment plans and how to address it.

Chemical Stress and mental health! 

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:18:54] Yeah, and this emotional stress is a great segue into our next, our next stressor as well. Chemical stress so chemical stress is from the foods that we eat, and it’s an important stressor to consider when we’re dealing with our emotional stress because we know a lot of people who will start to stress eat. Why do we crave sugar so much when we’re stressed right people will automatically start eating junk foods or copious amounts? This is because there is an actual link between eating sugar and it having a negative feedback loop to the release of cortisol and stress hormones. It actually calms things down.

But the negative effect is the chemicals and the sugar that you’re consuming. Right. You’re kind of a double-edged sword here because, you know, yeah, you’re using the food to manage the stress that you’re experiencing. But the chemicals that you’re taking into your body will stress you just as much. Mm-hmm. So I thought that that was an interesting, interesting thing, that you’re using the coping, but it’s not necessarily helping you.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:20:07] Yeah. And there’s also the release of dopamine with the intake of sugar. Right. So, you know, the dopamine gives you that high because usually when people are stressed, sometimes they could be depressed a little bit and they’re not at their best, their best mood, so to speak. So eating sugar also brings that mood up a little bit by the short-term effect of the dopamine release. And I think sometimes, too, you know, there can be an emotional part to the eating.

There are certain comfort foods that kind of bring you back like your old parts of your brain, your limbic system, you know, bring back memories, you know, in terms of what brought you comfort when you were a child, you know, maybe you sat on the couch and watch the movie and ate popcorn or whatever. And that’s your comfort zone. Go to when things get rough and stressed. And so there is that emotional aspect of, you know, what eating does in terms of bringing you comfort, I guess.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:21:08] And I mean, I’m just looking at those donuts now, and I’m just thinking all I have going through my mind is comfort, comfort, comfort that looks so good. We’ve also got yeah, so sugars are bad for the. They increase joint and muscle inflammation, and that’s where it comes into play. And ultimately, I have a Krispy Kreme pack. I have I’ve had many Krispy Kremes and they’re very good.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:21:32] I am supposed to say that, but I was just asking you if you had one, you didn’t have to say you had sorry.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:21:36] The cat’s out of the bag.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:21:39] Donuts. True story I had. We were in. I was doing my studies in Georgia. The first time I ever saw Krispy Kreme was when I was in the U.S. doing my studies. I was with my friend and we were just driving. And all of a sudden he comes to like a halt almost on the highway. I’m like, What’s happening? Is there an accident happening? He said, No, this is the sign that just went on at Krispy Kreme. You saw the sign come on and what it means when the sign is on at Krispy Kreme. For those of you who don’t know, Krispy Kreme is the donuts that just came out of the oven and they’re warm. So he wanted to stop at Krispy Kreme, so almost caused an accident to get Krispy Kreme donuts.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:22:12] Wow. Yeah, I’d be stressed. My emotional stressors would be much, much higher. We talk about smoking all the time and we all know the negative effects of smoking. You know, we probably sound like a broken record. But you know, nicotine negatively, negatively sorry, affects the bone-building cells. The osteoblasts and slows the reproduction of these cells. And so it makes our bones a lot weaker. We’re stopping that production there. You get poor healing after a break and the same thing is not just for bones, but poor healing and skin tissue as well. The body is in a position where it’s poor to heal. And so when you’re starting to try to take care of that as a chiropractor, the patient has to understand that the healing isn’t going to be as fast as, you know, as a non-smoker, for example.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:23:05] Now, no, that’s really true. And I’ve seen a lot like with people like, I feel bad sometimes because people are going through stressful periods and we’re coming through. We’re getting close to a stressful period being Christmas. And, you know, Christmas brings a lot of things, you know, it brings, you know, family dynamics, it brings financial stress. It brings, you know, chemical stress because we don’t eat, you know, usually that healthy during the holidays. And bear in mind, guys, you know, it’s not what you’re going to eat in one week being the Christmas holiday is going to ruin you. It’s what you eat during the rest of the fifty-one weeks.

So don’t put too much emphasis and stress on what you eat during the holidays. Like, we’re all you know, whoever here says that day about a thousand on their diet every single day. I’m going to call them a liar, so we all fall off the tracks once in a while. But knowing that we’re going through this period, I can literally tell you that the people that need the most care during these holidays are the ones that tell me they don’t have time to come in. Right. So if you don’t have 15 minutes in your life. To make a little detour in your routine during the day, to come and get adjusted and do what it takes.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:24:22] You’re willing to take the risk of not having a life, meaning what I mean by that is that, you know, you don’t value taking care of yourself, taking 15 minutes just to do something for yourself like you need to be worthy of your self-worth or know what your self-worth is to take care of yourself because you can’t take care of others. If you’re not healthy yourself, right, you can’t be everything to your kid. You can’t be everything to your mom that you’re taking care of your dad, you’re taking care of and everything that you know your job. You can’t be everything to everybody if you’re not taking care of yourself.

So make sure that you take the time to be everything that you can be and allow your body to be able to be as healthy as it can so it can adapt to the stress that’s inevitable. Coming up in the holiday season, you are going to get stressed, right? Nobody’s naive enough to think they’re not. It’s not going to be there every year. It happens, right? So it is going to be there. Yeah. What do you do to prevent it and prevent the effects of it from taking a hold of you? That’s the key. That’s the key.

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:25:30] And one of the big tips and tricks that we gave from last year’s stress conversation, especially when we were heading into the new year and heading into holidays, was going into the holiday season with fewer rules, fewer rules, fewer expectations for other people. Sometimes we go in and oh, we expect this person to show up and they’re going to do this and they’re going to do that. No, don’t put the rules on others. You know, go in with a blank slate going with a positive attitude of, you know, I’m not expecting, you know, a lot.

I’m just expecting to be with these people and I know that they’re going to be there or I’m going to have my family or what’s going to happen. Just go into the situation and you’ll adapt much better with fewer and fewer rules. Holding yourself, holding yourself to that standard. So I have alcohol on the chemical stress list as well. And so we all know the negative effects of alcohol on the intestinal and digestive system, and so it decreases the healing in that area as well. And so you can’t because the liver as well is not functioning at its optimal.

You can’t detox the stomach as well. It also leads to gout attacks. And so alcohol’s wines are filled with something called a purine, which is pro-inflammatory. And so for those who have gout, you’ll notice that alcohol and red meats make it a lot worse. So you end up with a very large and swollen toe. So just the effects of chemical stress and its effects on your nervous system. And so as chiropractors, we work to eliminate some of these from our patient’s environment. No.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:27:14] No, I agree. What else? I think I said maybe I just open up real quick, if you have any questions, just let us know. We still have a little bit of time and we’re going to go into our supplement of the month. One thing I just want to say again, just a touch base on the holidays. One of the things that I value in life the most, and maybe this will speak to some of you and maybe it won’t be OK, but I’m just going to share a little bit of transparency and be authentic with you guys. And if you like this, then give me a heart and thumbs up.

But one of the things that I value in life the most. And it’s a commodity that once you waste it, it never comes back. It’s time, right? And many of us are running out of time because our time gets taken up with a lot of things. And whether we feel that those things are important or not important seems like an emergency at the end of the day. We never say I had too much time for myself today, right? So the day goes by, and one of the things that we often say is that we ran out of time, right? It seems like time is always being taken away from us.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:28:33] So at the end of the day, what I tell myself is whatever time that I have left. After the necessary thing, which is, you know, going to work and doing the things that are part of your day that just need to get done. The amount of time that’s left in your day. The people that you choose to bring into that time, whether it be, you know, obviously there’s going to be kids in there and they’re going to chip away at whatever time is left. You know, your relationship with, you know, with your wife or your husband, there’s a little bit of time left.

Whoever you choose to spend that time with, whether it be during the holidays or during sporting events or date nights, not date nights, but you know, night outs with friends, you have to make sure that those people value who you are because there’s nothing more that I hate than spending time with somebody that you feel you have to be a different person in order for them to accept you. Right? So sometimes during the holidays, some of you might be spending time with people you feel you have to be different in front of in order for them to accept you as a person.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:29:46] There is nothing worse for human beings to not be able to cherish who we are as human beings, right? And being who we are. So one of the things that I invite you to do is, you know, just take an inventory of your life and the people that allow you to be you. Versus the people that make you feel like you have to perform for their love. Right? So going into the holidays, I think that’s something that, you know, if it resonates with you guys and, you know, maybe some of you said, you know what? That’s exactly me. You know, I feel like, you know, I got to be fake with somebody or I can’t be myself.

Make sure that you do you right? And like Ben said, go into the holidays with fewer rules. If guess what, if just being you is not enough, it’s probably not people you want to hang with. All right. So be you. Be your authentic self. And that way you don’t have to worry about what people think about you because you are enough. I’m done preaching. Hopefully, that resonates with somebody. Makes sense, makes sense.

Vitamin D+K2

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:30:49] Yeah.

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:30:50] All right. So supplement of the month

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:30:55] Vitamin D with K2

Dr. Clayton Roach: [00:30:57] Now from the Sun to you

Dr. Ben Boudreau: [00:30:58] Bringing the sunshine. So yeah, vitamin D, we’re going. We’re getting into this time of year like, you know, I’m waking up, I’m going to work and it’s dark and I get here and to work and it’s still dark. Then we treat all day and then we leave and it’s dark. Raise your hand if you’re resonating with me a little bit because, yeah, we need that sunlight. And it’s important not just for getting a tan. There’s a lot more than just that. It can boost your immune activity. Especially when we’re heading into the winter months where you know, colds and it’s getting colder out and our bodies aren’t can’t always adapt to that change.
