"“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” ~ Jesus (John 16:33)
Do you or someone you know experience any of the following symptoms?
Frequent frustration Toxic relationships Back, neck and/or shoulder pain Illness Anger Impatience Insomnia (lack of sleep) Dizziness Lack of focus Numbness Tears / crying at random times Headache - tension Migraine Nausea Alcohol / substance abuse Stomach / digestive disorder / IBS Weight gain / obesity Poor judgment Ringing in ears Erratic driving TMJ (clenched teeth/jaw) Fibromyalgia Heart racing / palpitations Shortness of breath / hyperventilation (This list is certainly not exhaustive, but only an example.)
Any persistent or intermittent combination of the above can be a sign of CHRONIC STRESS!
"Stress can ruin people’s lives much more than they may think. According to the research conducted at Duke University (USA), chronic stress damages the DNA, which in its turn can cause a whole bunch of diseases, including cancer. Stress is known to cause the release of the hormone adrenaline, which influences a body, affecting everything possible, from the neural responses to the level of metabolism.
...Stress suppresses the immune system, resulting in disability to cope with the environmental hazards such as viruses, infections, atypical cells, etc. According to many scientists it is chronic stress that causes such diseases as high blood pressure, constipation, digestive disorders, coronary thrombosis, asthma, migraine, hay fever and other allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, menstrual complications, hyperthyroidism, diabetes and skin diseases." ... excerpt from an article in www.elmilo.com.
