You Cannot Heal or Get Well When Your Body is Under Stress

March 16, 2016

Hi there!


The classic definition of stress is “any real or imagined threat, and your body’s response to it.”

Stress plays a major role in your immune system and can impact your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, brain chemistry, blood sugar levels and hormonal imbalance. Most importantly when your body is under the stress response, your cortisol (a stress hormone) and insulin (a sugar balancing hormone) levels rise. Look here for more information on PHYSICAL responses to stress.


The body’s response to stress is first and formost a feeling. Emotions are our guidance system. Our brain is wired to physically respond to feelings (eg to start producing stress hormones (cortisol) when you  have a stressful feeling.) Cortisol gets you moving to cope with the stress (eg fight fight) but prolonged cortisol lowers the the immune system.


Fear, rage, worry, doubt, grief, despair, overwhelment, guilt, blame, insecurity, frustration, irritation, impatience and  powerlessness are some emotions that we feel when we are under stress.


So whatever the real or imagined threat is, it is the feeling (the response) that is alerting the body that things aren’t ‘quite right’. And you need to change whatever is happening, to get the body out of that situation.

Threats could be caused by being chased by a polar bear (this is unlikely!) or hanging around people who make you feel ‘stressed’ and make you feel these emotions (highly likely!) .


If you feel ANY of these above feelings on a REGULAR basis, chances are your body is under stress.


You cannot physically or mentally heal when your body is under stress. Even if you are doing everything else ‘right’ e.g. diet, exercise etc.

If you continually feel those negative emotions (fear, rage, worry, doubt, grief, despair, overwhelment, guilt, blame, insecurity, frustration, irritation, impatience and  powerlessness) you cannot heal.


Get these feelings out of your system now, so your body can get well! 🙂


Have a good week!

I am writing to tell you there is hope and there is a chance to find peace! Denise and her beautiful energy and the healing power of kinesiology have changed and continue to change my life.

For as long as I can remember I have felt an uneasiness within myself, a feeling that wherever I was I didn't fit in. Whether it was with family, friends, school or work. I always felt as if I didn't belong. I wasn't funny enough, pretty enough, smart enough, never enough. I was always hard on myself with constant negative self talk about how I could be better. Get a better job, be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. If I do this then I will be valued, will I be loved? How difficult it is to find peace or contentment within ourselves when we replay in our minds and constantly remind ourselves of how we aren't good enough.

If we also stop to think for a moment that we may also be carrying with us the pain and heartaches from our ancestors or perhaps from previous lives. What hope is there for finding happiness when we carry these burdens with us?

I am no longer haunted by thoughts pushing me to do more or be more. I am enough. I do belong. Whatever I am doing and wherever I am, that is where I am meant to be. I am less anxious and I am finding improvements in all areas of my life.

I am extremely grateful for the healing and would recommend kinesiology to everybody!
