Emotions Proven to Alter Genetic Expression(NaturalHealth365) Can a change in our consciousness (mindset) actually alter our genetic expression? Does anger and depression increase the risk of getting cancer? Although conventional medicine tends to pay little attention to lifestyle habits, thoughts and feelings dramatically influence our physical health.

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dawson Church, Ph.D. will talk about how emotions (even, our thoughts) play a significant role in the development of disease. Ultimately, true healing is a manifestation of changes in lifestyle habits – including the resolution of emotional and psychological issues. Join us for an informative program.

Why does stress remain the number one killer of human beings?

Simply put, it may be a matter of priorities. So often, living in the modern world, we are taught to suppress emotions and focus on living a ‘successful’ life – according to what others would have us believe is best for us. In other words, NOT living the life of YOUR dreams can cause tremendous internal stress.

Doing things we don’t enjoy or living an unfulfilling life can generate an enormous amount of psychological stress and chronic emotional unrest. These damaging thoughts and feelings of pressure can cause muscular tension, headaches, chest pain, fatigue, sleep disorders, depression and drive us to behave in detrimental ways. For example, I’ve often wondered, how does ‘happy hour’ (drinking alcohol) make us truly happy? Especially when you consider that alcohol suppresses bodily functions.

Bottom line, most conventionally-trained doctors spend little time helping patients with their emotional/psychological issues. Yet, these forms of chronic stress cause the vast majority of the health problems we see today. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, we’ll explore – scientifically – how thoughts and feelings affect our genetic expression.

How can I reduce the chronic stress in my life?

Obviously, this can be a complicated topic to discuss. But, for starters, try to experience some relaxing (quiet) time for yourself or share that time with a loved one. For example, the best part of my day is a one-hour walk (with my wife) within a 1,600 acre park by the water. Just one word of advice, don’t use that time to discuss ‘stressful’ situations – that’s counterproductive, wouldn’t you agree?

When we are relaxed – we tend to make better decisions in our personal and professional life. After all, what’s more important than feeling healthy? Whenever I feel emotionally stressed – I focus my attention on the good things in my life and those negative feelings tend to fade away.

Deep breathing, moderate amounts of exercise and improved sleeping habits can dramatically improve the quality of your life. I’ve often said, if you feel emotionally drained, it could be due to unhealthy food habits, toxic drinking water or, even, the use of wireless technology – which causes an increased production of stress proteins.

Of course, if your stress stems from a toxic relationship, you have two choices: try to resolve it (I’ve done that) or avoid those people (I’ve done that too) – as quickly as possible. On our next show, we’ll talk about how emotions influence physical health.

“The mind is everything. What you think you become.” That’s one of my favorite quotes from Buddha. Louise Hay says, “Keep your thoughts healthy.” And, Leo Buscaglia said it best, when he said: “Don’t brood. Get on with living and loving. You don’t have forever.”

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dawson Church, Ph.D. will talk about why it’s so important to develop a healthy outlook on life. Plus, you’ll learn how psychological issues can be passed on to future generations.

    Johnathan, looking forward to the show. This is a topic that doesn’t get enough attention. We all heard the term body, mind and spirit, yet we aren’t really aware they are all part of our being.

    In medicine disease is treated as an outside entity, which somehow can be taken care of with outside remedies. At most a change of diet and some exercise may be suggested. To heal we have to change our whole being including what we eat, what we think and how we act.

    I am sure this show as usual will be interesting and informative.

    It has been proven what we think and the stress we experience not only changes the way our genes are expressed, but does so for the next generations. Our mothers and grandparents stress level has a marked influence on our health.

    That is why a Pregnant mother’s stress level is so important. This is a topic that is finally getting the attention it deserves.

  • Judy Lynn

    Practice being in the now instead of worrying about what you did wrong in the past and future problems that may or may not come about. This has helped me tremendously.

    It isn’t as easy to do as it sounds, we are use to constant thoughts racing through our mind. But, if you get the hang of it the benefits are worth it. Not stressing about things that aren’t happening in the moment is wonderful
