If we experience high levels of stress in our lives on a regular basis, the health of our bodies and minds will soon reflect this. The frequent release of stress related hormones, such as cortisol, adrenalin and noradrenalin, from the adrenal glands into the blood eventually wears on our muscle tissues, bones, brain, nervous and immune systems. Our bodies have been designed to fire these hormones in times of acute danger, e.g. when a tiger is running after us, not on a daily or even hourly basis.

Canadian Physician, Lecturer and Author, Dr. Gabor Maté, says that stress primarily “represents the absence of something that we perceive as necessary for survival ~ or its threatened loss,” e.g. food supply, shelter threatened, loss of love, etc. The unknown is a primary contributor to stress, or which the “research literature has identified three factors that universally lead to stress: uncertainty, the lack of information and the loss of control. All three are present in the lives of individuals with chronic illness.” In addition, Canadian Endocrinologist and famous stress researcher, Hans Selye supported this when he “said without hesitation, that for man the most important stressors are emotional.”

The effects of high levels of stress on our body include any of the following symptoms: digestive issues, weak immune system, chronic muscle and joint pain, heart disease, headaches, osteoporosis, fatigue, poor skin, insomnia, depression, anxiety, etc. 

While the body can self~regulate around stress to a degree, over time and without support it weakens and is unable to regain its intrinsic balance. The good news is that the nervous system, the Sympathetic Nervous System and other affected body parts and systems can be reset so that the body and mind can recover from the effects of ongoing stress.

BodyTalk energy therapy is a phenomenal tool that helps us do just this. It resets the nervous system so that the body can heal itself. By following the BodyTalk Protocol, we are able to identify ongoing stressors in our environments, past events, belief systems, inherited factors, etc. and highlight the parts and systems of the body and mind that these stressors are primarily affecting. Once this information is brought into awareness and suggestions for change are made to the body’s information field, gentle tapping is used over the brain and heart to instigate and store the changes in the body’s memory.

If your body and mind could use support in regulating the effects of ongoing stressors on your body and mind, feel free to come in for a BodyTalk session and enjoy the benefits of increased health and peace of mind. I have practiced and received BodyTalk sessions for years and continue to be amazed at the efficiency and effectiveness of this simple, holistic, energy therapy.
