Stress affects every part of the body.
In this day and age, we are bombarded by more stress than ever. Stress is the enemy and is making us sick.
Stress can stem from a mental or emotional issue. Perhaps an unresolved emotional trauma or having problems at work or home, or simply just a busy life, no time to rest.
It can be structural. Structural issues may be a jaw joint imbalance causing headaches and throwing the whole body out of balance. It could be a chronic neck, back or hip problem. Structural stress is anything to do with bones, ligaments and muscles.
Chemical and environmental stress is often unnoticed or unseen. It can come from the foods we eat. We may be eating foods that taste good but are not good for us. It may be actual toxic chemicals in food from added hormones, herbicides and pesticides. It may be a reaction from foods that we are intolerant or allergic to. It can come from the products you use such as hair products, makeup, and cleaning products. This type of stress can also come from the air you breathe, the ground you walk on, the furniture you sit on and many things you touch.
Then there is electromagnetic stress. It is usually ignored because it has become so much as part of our lives. Electromagnetic stress is from all things electrical such as your computer, cell phone and TV. It is the constant toxic energy it omits causing sleep disruptions, addictive behaviors and attention deficit.
Ongoing stress eventually leads to illness.
How the body reacts to stress differs from person to person.
A person’s reaction to stress may be silent but it can include:
- Weight gain or weight loss
- Poor digestion
- Stomach pain, acid reflux
- Constipation, bloat, gas, burping, diarrhea
- Sinus congestion
- Muscle aches and pain
- Breathing restriction
- Develop food allergies or intolerance and food addictions
- Hormone imbalances (hormones such as cortisol, insulin, thyroid, estrogen, progesterone or testosterone)
- Exhaustion, poor brain function
- Nutrient malabsorption; vitamin, mineral, essential fatty acids, amino acids, and antioxidants
- Autoimmune diseases

This is not a diet but a lifestyle
To reduce stress, do the emotional work. Often, we stuff our traumas and feelings. Where does this negative energy go? It goes into the body causing pain, inflammation, constipation and breathing problems. It may create illness, depression and anxiety. Emotional blocks may develop, often preventing our lives to move forward.
Intuitive Release Therapy uses deep breathing techniques, guided meditation and focused energy work to relax your body so you can deal with the issues.
When the emotional pattern is recognized and addressed, the tension pattern in the muscles, tissues, organs and cells of the body often relax and let go.
One may experience peace, balance, and happiness.
An excellent way to address stress is to meditate.
Meditation is a way to contemplate and reflect on life. Many people practice meditation to slow their thoughts, to relax, and to reduce stress.
This way of relaxing has been used to treat high blood pressure, anxiety, depression and serious illnesses such as cancer.
A meditation session uses deep breathing techniques and guided imagery to relax the body.
People often feel as if they are floating. They experience a sense of peace and happiness. After the session they often feel energized or extremely relaxed.
