We Can’t Stress This Enough: Stress Is A Killer!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
You’ll notice a number of articles in the blog and in this month’s newsletter about stress.  The holiday season has a way of bringing it out, and we need to be prepared for it.

For those of you who still believe that stress is merely a nuisance, and that anyone who takes specific steps to manage stress is borderline sissy, you need a massive upgrade in your “Stress Threat Assessment”.  Take a look at just a few of the health challenges that are connected with uncontrolled stress:
Dr. Bruce Lipton is a cell biologist who’s research at Princeton led him to conclude that stress may be one of the most important roots of human disease.  Drs. Alexander Lloyd and Ben Johnson have echoed that belief.
At a recent lecture I attended, the speaker spoke about how cells in the body react to stress.  He said that the cell, in effect, “closes up” when constantly exposed to unmitigated stress.  This means that nutrients don’t go in and toxins do not go out.  When you see pictures of how Presidents age after one or two terms in office, this gives you a glimpse of the effects of stress over a relatively short period of time.
We could have pages and pages of documentation that points to the deleterious effects of chronic stress on the human body, but this gives you a Cliff’s Notes overview of some of the highlights.

This month, we will talk about some strategies for helping to manage stress.  In the meantime, be honest and really assess how you’re doing.  This month, let’s be reminded that a serious challenge demands a serious response.  Once and for all, let’s begin to take stress seriously
