Course Description:
Ninety percent of human disease and most of human distress is caused by stress. With our rapidly changing world, problems associated with acute and chronic stress are mounting. Most patients treated by biofeedback practitioners have elements of stress related disease or stress induced disease. This talk will describe the physiology of stress from its origins to its eventual manifestation as disease, with emphasis on how this progression can be altered by biofeedback interventions. How various drugs and invasive techniques work for stress disorders will be demonstrated also, along with their implications for biofeedback practitioners.

Learning Objectives:

  • List the steps of activation of the fight or flight response
  • List the steps of activation of the HPA axis
