In 1895, Daniel David Palmer, the founder of Chiropractic, said …
“The human body gets sick as the result of excessive trauma or toxins or thoughts, or a combinations of these agents.”
At Stress to Strength, our belief is that certain individuals become stressed when their bodies cannot cope with these adverse offending factors.
The schematic above is adapted from a model created by Bruce Lipton PhD. If the resultant negative behaviour persists in a person’s life as the result of prolonged stress, then the person experiences DIS-EASE (“lack of ease”, which is where the word “disease” originated) and they become chronically unwell.
For some individuals, thoughts can be a potent area that produces stress in their lives, since thoughts are real forces.
Andrew Bernstein, an authority on stress management, said…
“The truth is that stress doesn’t come from your boss, your kids, your spouse, traffic jams, health challenges, or other circumstances. It comes from your thoughts about these circumstances.”
If you continually work at turning negative thoughts into positive thoughts, you’ll be amazed how easy it is to take charge of your stress and not be a victim to it.
