Stress and illness

stress-cartoonEverybody knows that stress makes us sick it also ages us, but do we know why?

Latent illness’ surface when we are under pressure, be they digestive, heart or skin conditions etc. No one really talks about the why and I think that it is rather interesting so I would like to share it with you.

Conditions causes stress and illness

Here is the science about stress and illness. The autonomic nervous system can be divided into two parts. Section one is the parasympathetic and two the sympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system is the one that is activated when we are relaxing; the sympathetic is for stress situations. At rest blood is pumping through the organs in the trunk also through the brain to rejuvenate and allow us to perform normal functions such as digestion, to think clearly, and so on. If there is a threat e.g. a tiger attacks adrenalin from the adrenal glands spikes and all the blood rushes to the arms and legs so we have energy to run away, we switch from the parasympathetic to the sympathetic nervous system. Our best chance of survival is to have the majority of blood in our arms and legs so we can sprint. The body thus diverts all its resources to the periphery and forgets about digesting the sandwich you had for lunch, or killing the fever that you are suffering from, or indeed about general maintenance of organs. Who cares about that when your life is at stake? You either run like the wind and maybe escape or are eaten on the spot!

Symptoms of stress and illness

Unfortunately, in the world today with constant impending dead-lines many of us live in the sympathetic nervous system, the stressed out one. This once again means that the blood flow is in our arms and legs rather than our trunk where the organs are, or even in our brains. Have you noticed when you are stressed you are more likely to make bad decisions? Well physiologically that is at least in part due to the lack of blood flow to the brain. In short stress makes you stupid!

If the blood is not going to our brain or major organs we are not digesting, rejuvenation or doing the normal body functions we are designed to do. Stressed people die younger partly as the blood is not nourishing the organs. It also ages us tremendously and causes us to make bad decisions. So there are many reasons to stress and illness.

Treating stress and illness

So now you know why stress causes illness what can you do about it? Divine Empowerment workshops greatly reduce stress and teach stress management, amongst other things. We have an energies called ‘grounding’ and ‘centring’ in level one which allow you to experience the benefits of meditation which let’s face it is a great stress buster in just a few minutes. The energies are installed into the human energy system in seconds and you just intend to run them, within a few minutes you feel less stress. In level two incredible ‘Flower of Life’ light-technology is This allows you to work on each organ in turn which may have been damaged by trauma in the past? Within a few hours or days the organ is at its optimal level which may have never happened before. You can look forward to a healthy life with less stress and illness.
