STRESS: The Enemy of Your Physical and Mental Health - How to beat it
May 5, 2023

Reading time 2 min.

If you want to stay healthy, besides many lifestyle changes you might want to make in your life, the number one change that can have an enormous impact on a physical and mental level is learning how to manage stress.
It's as simple as that.

In an article published in the Malaysian Journal of Medical Sciences, they mention studies that have shown that short-term stress might boost the immune system, while chronic stress has a significant effect on the immune system that ultimately manifests an illness.
Interesting fact (also scary): emotional stress is a major contributing factor to the six leading causes of death in the United States: cancer, coronary heart disease, accidental injuries, respiratory disorders, cirrhosis of the liver, and suicide.
The relationship between stress and illness is complex.
Mainly because the susceptibility to stress varies from person to person.

The first step to managing stress is to identify what causes you stress. Once you know what your stressors are, you can start to develop strategies for dealing with them.

Stress can be caused by anything, from everyday demands to major life events. While a little stress can be motivating as I mentioned before, too much can be harmful to your health.
It can lead to headaches, stomachaches, muscle tension, and trouble sleeping. It can also make you more likely to get sick.
If you're feeling overwhelmed by stress, there are steps you can take to manage it.
Here are some tips on how to manage stress and improve your health.

For immediate relief from stress, you might try to:

  • Take a few deep breaths (this is my favorite tool because it is very effective and gives some degree of immediate relief)
  • Go for a walk
  • Listen to music
  • Talk to someone you trust
  • Take a nap

For more intense and/or chronic stress in your life:

  • Make time for relaxation. Relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing can help you reduce stress levels.
  • Get regular exercise. Exercise releases endorphins, which have mood-boosting effects.
  • Eat a healthy diet. What you eat can have a big impact on your mood and energy levels.
  • Get enough sleep. When you're well-rested, you're better able to cope with stress.
  • Talk to someone. If you're feeling overwhelmed it can be helpful to talk to a friend, family member, or therapist.
  • Set realistic goals
  • Learn to say no
  • Take breaks
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol

You can apply some or all of those tips, depending on your personality and the stress level you are experiencing.
And please DON'T GET STRESSED if you can't find the time to apply all those tips at the beginning of your lifestyle-change journey.
Start with one or two tips.
Stress management is an ongoing process. It requires practice and discipline.
There will be times when you feel stressed, even if you're following these tips. But by learning how to manage stress effectively, you can improve your physical and mental health, reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases, and live a happier and healthier life.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.

Release & Transmute: Emotional Healing Session

In this active participation session, we will work through personal emotional blockages using a series of practices including meditation, sound, breathwork and visualisation to identify, acknowledge, feel and release these emotions.

This session is open to all and particularly those who feel that they have unresolved trauma that they would like to address.

This is a space to take healing into your own hands and shift traumatic energy and transform it into new experiences that bring forth positive life changes and improved mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health.

The session is multi-sensory to enable participants to access various aspects of their being to draw out cellular memories of these past events to confront and manage them better moving forward.

You will need:

  • A private space where you can lie or sit up and relax comfortably
  • A note pad to journal your experiences and emotions
  • A blindfold/eye cover
  • Your camera will need to be on
  • If you wish you can have candles and incense of your choice for your personal space

Ancestral Voices Co-founder Verona Spence-Adofo launched the Release & Transmute: Emotional Healing Sessions to the public this year. It is a series of techniques she has used in her private consultations to great effect to assist in overcoming blockages we put up to deal with past uncomfortable experiences.
Drawn from her knowledge accumulated over 12 years of working with different healers and medicine people, a culmination of therapies she used on her own emotional blockages first and then successively on those who have used her services and gifts.
