My attachment style can cause health problems? Yes, according to research studies. The findings revealed that insecure attachment style can cause increased hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis reactions in infants and toddlers during challenging emotional situations. This is particularly true when children have the Disorganized Attachment Style, one that has a high correlation with adrenal stress caused by early childhood/developmental trauma.
Chronic relational trauma between children and their mothers during a child’s first year can cause an Adrenal Stress Response (ASR) that activates the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. If this chronic relational stress continues through early childhood, children begin to exhibit symptoms of adrenal fatigue. The most common ASR symptoms children show are attention problems, including hyperactivity. They simply cannot relax or rest, but go until they are exhausted. These early experiences lay the foundation for adrenal fatigue and eventual exhaustion.
Adrenal Fatigue Causes Health Problems
Dr. Steven Zodkoy, an chiropractor and expert on adrenal fatigue, says that it is a primary cause of physical health issues such chronic pain and chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and to weight gain. He says it’s also related to mental health issues such as anxiety, ADD, ADHD, migraines, OCD, depression and PTSD.
MISDIAGNOSED: The Adrenal Fatigue Link, Dr. Zodkoy’s FREE ebook for lay readers, defines and explains adrenal fatigue. It provide tools to help you determine if you suffer from adrenal fatigue, and describes a plan of action for helping people to achieve optimal health. His information about adrenal function is vastly superior to what most traditional medical people know or understand.
I found Dr. Zodkoy’s ebook very readable and highly informative. I suggest that you visit his website to learn more about his book, and to download his free ebook in Kindle format at Amazon. If you don’t have an ebook reader, you can get a free one for the Kindle here at Amazon.
