Effects Of Stress: How Stress Causes 95% Of Physical Illness

By Michael David Lawrience B. A., B. Com

Men and women handle stress differently. Today, however, I will address the root cause of stress that all of us experience. According to Bruce Lipton, a cellular biologist, about 95 % of all illnesses are caused by stress. (See his book, The Biology of Belief).

That is a bold statement. Stress decreases the functioning of our immune systems which keep our bodies healthy. This then can lead to dis-ease – a lack of ease – and illness.

We manage to cope day to day with the outside stresses around us. It is the stress within us which presents us with a greater challenge. Why is this? The cause of our inner stress exists on an unconscious level, in other words, we feel it and have little awareness of how to manage it.

So how can we go beyond just coping to actually healing this inner stress? How can we turn back on our low functioning immune systems? First let’s look at how inner stress is created.

At a cellular in our DNA we carry untrue beliefs, negative feelings, images, and memories from past events in our lives. The untrue beliefs lay with in our unconscious minds so we have little or no awareness of them. Some common beliefs can be: I am not good enough, I can never do things better than a man, I am stupid, or nobody will ever want to be with me etc.

We may on a conscious level tell ourselves, I am very good at my job or I am more competent than my boss, yet our unconscious belief, I am not good enough, will sabotage our conscious intent.

Our unconscious belief always has the greater power. It always wins. Thus, we experience an internal conflict, our stress builds, and we wonder why we never achieve the goals and success we feel we deserve.

Our unconscious beliefs always have a degree of untruth, which we take for compete truth. These beliefs arise because of some painful event in our past, many times in our childhood. Our body stores the memory and negative feeling at a cellular level.

For instance, as a child we may feel our mother liked our sister better than us. Our mother may have one time given our sister an ice cream. We wanted one too and our mother said, “Go and wash your face and I will give you an ice cream.”

We refused for some reason. We didn’t get the ice cream. We felt hurt and at an unconscious formed the belief that our mother liked our sister better. We weren’t good enough.

The pain of an unconscious belief gets activated by some similar event in our lives. This creates inner stress. Our immune systems function less than optimal.

We would like to reduce the stress. We would like to heal the belief that we aren’t good enough. Our unconscious mind, however, protects us from re-experiencing the original abuse, pain, or trauma.

Thus, it is impossible heal our unconscious with our conscious mind because we have little or no awareness of the cellular beliefs, feel-ings, and memories. Some people forgot years of their childhood because of the pain.

There are, however, a few ways to heal our unconscious cellular memories and dissolve the stress which then allows our immune systems to function better. One of these ways is a self-healing method described in “The Healing Codes” by Loyd and Johnson available on Amazon.

Are you ready to heal the internal stress caused by cellular memories wracking havoc with success in your life?
