HTMA: Stress Levels
by Johnny Delirious
Stress levels whether acute or chronic are shown in the sub-categories of the metabolic types. Developed by Hans Selye, these are the alarm, resistance, recovery and exhaustion stages. The HTMA will show the metabolic typing and indicate these different degrees of stress making it easier to determine and utilize specific therapy to work with. Within these categories we are using nutritional support (both with food and supplementation) that helps lower stress and working in harmony with the body. The following is a brief:
Fast Metabolism – Sympathetic Dominance
This is linked to excessive sympathetic nervous activity. Some dominant features are seen as Fast Oxidation and the Type A personality. This condition increases the availability of glucose for rapid metabolism via epinephrine release from the adrenal medulla. This stimulates other areas of the body and can increase the metabolic rate as much as 100%.
Very often the fast metabolizer will not complete the Krebs cycle in cell respiration and many times remain in the state of glycolysis. High tissue acidity and low pancreatic enzyme have also been noted. Both physical and emotional stress is observed and seen with elevated blood pressure and excessive perspiration, like sweaty hands.
Fast Metabolism Type 1
Increased adrenal activity and thyroid function – increased energy levels.
Could experience alarm, resistance or recovery stages of stress.
Fast Metabolism Type 2
Increased adrenal cortical activity and lowered thyroid function.
Dramatic energy fluctuations, mood swings.
Fast Metabolism Type 3
Decreased adrenal cortical activity with increased thyroid function
Resistance or exhaustive stage of stress, if chronic it can result in depression, irritability
Fast Metabolism Type 4
Decreased adrenal activity and decrease thyroid glandular function.
Exhaustive stage, extreme fatigue, depression and anxiety.
Slow Metabolism – Para-Sympathetic Dominance
Glucose is metabolized at a reduced rate, coupled with Slow Oxidation. This Type B personality can run the risk of normal energy levels becoming inadequate. This is a result of the inability to split glucose to form adequate amounts of pyruvates and oxaloacetic acid in the glucose cycle; and this leads to the inability to produce citric acid in the Krebs cycle. Low HCL and tissue alkalinity is a prominent occurrence.
Many slow metabolizers are very methodical, seen as perfectionists who will start projects and see them through to completion. If over extended with scheduling and as work pressure builds, stress is their worst enemy, fatigue and depression will follow.
Slow Metabolism Type 1
Decreased adrenal medullary activity and decreased thyroid function
Can experience any one of the four stages of stress.
Slow Metabolism Type 2
Increased adrenal cortical activity and decreased thyroid function
Alarm stage of stress. mood swings
Slow Metabolism Type 3
Decreased adrenal cortical activity and increased thyroid function
Resistance or exhaustion stages of stress – depression or irritability
Slow Metabolism Type 4
High adrenal activity in conjunction with elevated thyroid function.
Acute alarm stage that has progressed into the resistance stage.
