DOES STRESS CAUSE DISEASE?
Let's Talk Headaches and Stress
As far as headaches go, we live in a very stressful society. For instance, how many times do you tell your children or your wife or anyone to “hurry up, hurry up”? There are also so many things that we can not change - the wiring in our homes, the radios, the TVs, the microwaves, and all the other things of which we are not aware that creates electromagnetic pollution. We cannot change most of these things. There is air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution, and the chemical pollution in our food. Our bodies are stressed to the max.
When we are stressed, we release hormones. What do hormones do? After you utilize those hormones for your fight or flight response, they ferment and create an acid pH in the body. You will always notice that in people who are prone to headaches, just prior to the headache they had a stressful situation causing them to go into a fight or flight response. Their adrenals are dumping out hormones that cause acidosis. It cuts down their oxygen supply to the brain and nervous system eating up their hydrogen. So here comes another headache due to a drop in pH.
As far as immune system disorders, so many things are out of control. Most people buy almost every food loaded with chemicals. Most people will not buy food unless it is loaded with chemicals. We really need good supplementation, and we really need to saturate our bodies with readily absorbable nutrients, but buyer beware!
All supplements are not created equal. Misrepresentation in the supplement industry can lead to you believe that what you are taking is working in your body. Improper processing can affect the actual amount of any nutrient or vitamin in a capsule. For example, in a 500 mg capsule, up to 90% of the nutrient may never reach your cells because it is not bioavailable (readily absorbable by the human body). The nutrient may not have the capability of entering your cells, but will simply travel through your digestive tract (undigested), through your colon, and into the toilet. You will be literally flushing your money down the toilet.
Whether a person comes in with cancer, psoriasis, asthma, or environmental illness, it is all about creating an alkaline environment. It is all about getting their body alkaline again.
Let me tell you about the study where a tumor was cut it in half. Half of the tumor was placed in an acid solution and it doubled its size within a few hours. Then the other half of the tumor was placed in an alkaline solution and it died within a few hours. This study speaks for itself. Do you want to maintain an acid or alkaline environment in your body?
