5 Keys to Great Health - How You Can
Stop the Link Between Cancer and Stress
Both of my mother and father had cancer.
I've always had a hunch about what might have contributed
to their illnesses.
Now a new study has found a strong link
between stress and cancer. Researchers have discovered
there's a hormone you produce during stressful periods
How does this hormone increase the rate
First, the norepinephrine can stimulate
tumor cells to produce two compounds which in turn break
down the tissue around the tumor cells. This allows
the cancer cells to move into the bloodstream more easily.
Once the cells enter the bloodstream,
they can travel to other organs and tissues forming
more tumors. In other words, the cancer metastisizes.
Secondly, this same hormone may also
stimulate the tumor cells to release a chemical. The
chemical then helps the blood vessels that feed cancer
cells grow. The result - the growth and spread of cancer
This news from conventional medicine
confirms my hunch was true. My mom and dad, who had
divorced, both certainly had an abundance of inner turmoil.
This emotional and mental conflict set the groundwork
for an immune system gone out of balance.
Thing is, and this is key, both never
learned to handle stress in a healthy way.
The plain and simple fact is this. Stress
is a key precursor to any illness. In addition, if you
don't handle it in a healthy way, your brain may REWIRE
itself. And actually alter the way it functions.
Again, this is something I observed
in my mom and dad. Their brain connections were definitely
changed along the way.
What helps you stay balanced emotionally
1. You can do it with laughter.
2. You can do it with classical music.
3. You can do it with exercise.
4. You can do it with meditation.
5. You can do it with creative projects.
When all of the above are activated
regularly, stress is eliminated.

It's no use fighting stress. Unless

way to eliminate stress is to balance it with plenty
of un-stressful activities. The easiest of them all
is listening to high frequency classical music. I'm
talking about music that is positively charged. Give
your brain something to laugh about!
