What is the chronic resistance stage of stress?
The chronic resistance stage of stress is simply a long-term continuation of the resistance stage of stress. Today, the chronic resistance stage of stress is common and heavily contributes to a state of malnutrition as well as myriad health problems.
Unfortunately, it is a very deceptive stage of stress because you have an innate ability to adapt to myriad stressors.
For example, you may adapt to unhealthy relationships (family or friends), job (job itself, coworker, or supervisor), anger, resentments, commutes, and a myriad of other stressors. The result, as a nation, we are becoming unhealthier!
The chronic resistance stage of stress is a continual and long-term depletion of your nutritional resources. This stage of stress further increases nutrient imbalances because the sympathetic neuroendocrine system remains dominant.
This results in the continual release of stress hormones to produce “false or unnatural energy” that will eventually affect the functioning of your adrenal glands and thyroid. Consequently, this leaves you more susceptible to chronic and degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and others.
However, because your stress response and your body chemistry are uniquely yours, you may manifest a plethora of different symptoms.
For example, you may experience migraine headaches or more colds whereas another person may experience heightened issues with anger, judgmentalism, or weight problems.
In addition, if you are currently in a long-term battle with a disease, you would be in the chronic resistance stage of stress.
Hair Analysis and the Chronic Resistance Stage of Stress
Hair analysis can reveal the chronic resistance stage of stress. It is important to recognize this stage of stress because it is the most damaging to your health.
Here again, it is important to consider many mineral patterns revealed on the results of your hair analysis for proper interpretation.
The chronic resistance stage of stress normally reveals a further increase of potassium. Graphically, potassium will normally have risen well above sodium indicating a chronic resistance stage of stress. However, both minerals remain well above the ideal levels.
During the chronic resistance stage, the sodium/potassium ratio will normally drop below the ideal levels. In addition, the calcium/magnesium, calcium/potassium, sodium/magnesium, calcium/phosphorous, and zinc/copper ratios will become imbalanced as well.
The longer you endure the chronic resistance stage of stress, the greater the imbalances of both macro- and micronutrients. In addition, multiple abnormalities occur between vitamins, amino acids, and fatty acids.
Keep in mind, as your essential minerals (as well as all other nutrients) become more imbalanced, you become more susceptible to toxic elements and chemical toxins. In this instance, your ability too naturally detox the body becomes further compromised.

Follow the Gazelle!
We thought our gazelle escaped unscathed but an injury occurred. One of the alligator’s teeth cut our gazelle and between the bacteria on the tooth and in the water and dirt, a chronic resistant stage of stress has occurred. Unlike us, this is not emotionally induced but by the body being attacked from within by bacterial invaders.
Fortunately, our gazelle was strong and well nourished. The infection is difficult and requires more and more nutrients to heal. Day-by-day, this is placing heavy demands on the nutritional reserves. Will our gazelle advance to the exhaustion stage of stress?
