The Physical Dangers of Stress – You’re Destroying Your Body!

The dangers of stress are an exceedingly real and shockingly prevalent part of modern life.  A decade ago, around 25% of Americans considered themselves to have unusually high levels of stress in their daily lives.  In a Gallup poll released at the end of 2017, that number climbed dramatically to 79% of Americans! How Stress Works Stress can be caused by many different factors.  Acute stress is a normal part of life.  You might feel it after a fight with a significant other, a particularly hard commute to work, preparing for an interview, or before an important test.

Every person experiences inflammation as part of a normal immune system response to infection, sickness, or stress.  This is a system function called acute inflammation and your body needs it.  However, chronic inflammation is a different animal altogether – and one of the leading causes of major disease.

One of My Most Important Projects EVER!

Most of you who read my works know I stand for much more than bodily health. That’s corny, easy-peasy stuff (a cinch, as the Americans would say). My view of health is bigger, wider, deeper, longer and more detailed.I’m in this for healing lives, not just preserving the body. What’s the point of living an extra thirty years, if your life is so meager that you’d rather be dead? Ha ha! So quietly, over the years, after being one of the world’s top 10 in holistic health pioneers, and then helping spearhead the electronic medicine revolution with my book Virtual...
