Acute stress and cortisol

Answered on August 19, 2014

Can a major stress like a car accident elevate cortisol for an extended period of time? If someone is really shaken up, how long could elevated stress hormones be in the blood?

Energy psychology is new, but so is nutritional medicine, relatively speaking. http://tmt.sagepub.com/content/16/1/55.abstract?rss=1 EFT is currently undergoing clinical trials. http://www.stressproject.org/

Pseudoscience such as this has no place on paleo hacks.

For sure. EFT can relieve the stress/lower cortisol.

Absolutely. I personally know people who have had post traumatic stress disorder associated with motor vehicle collisions. Sorry I cant say as to how long cortisol in particular will remain elevated as it would be different in each case I suspect. Factors not even related to metabolic state and solely due to the accident may include severity of the accident, loved ones involved, number of collisions in a lifetime, even were and how the accident happened (for instance an accident on the way to work now may trigger anxiety each time you drive that route now), and of course other chronic stressors already present and base line stress just to name a few.
