Stress wisdom from our modern-day healers:

Andrew Weil, M.D. “All illness should be assumed to be stress-related until proved otherwise. Even if stress is not the primary cause of illness, it is frequently an aggravating factor.”

Spontaneous Healing, pg. 264. Fawcett Columbine, 1995.

Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.“It is almost an anti-miracle that so few people realize now that every major illness – cancer, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, stroke – and most accidents are more the result of our attitudes than of all other measurable factors combined.”

Miracles Do Happen, pg. 157. Element Books, 1995.

Leonard Laskow, M.D. “Recently we discovered that the common cold is “caused” by a virus. Then, further investigation revealed that even when we are well we harbor viruses. Therefore, viruses, in and of themselves, cannot be viewed as the sole cause of colds. If the immune system’s functioning is compromosed, the viruses that are always present seem to emerge and attack. So the real cause of a cold must be the state of the immune system. However, more recently we’ve learned that stress compromises the immune system. So wouldn’t stress be the real cause? But wait - there’s more. We are now finding that fear of losing control is at the root of most stress. So perhaps this fear is our real cause. Causal links will continue to build in complexity until we get to what we call, in holoenergetic healing, the source of an illness.”

Healing With Love, pg. 57, HarperSanFrancisco, 1992.

Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D. “Stress is the cumulative pressure that we encounter in going about our daily lives... Illness is the body’s reaction to total life stress.”
“And so it goes. Fear, anxiety, resentment, anger, guilt and depression block life energy. The electromagnetic deprivation of energy impacts the organ or body region with the greatest unresolved emotional distress.”

Sacred Healing: The Curing Power of Energy and Spirituality,
pgs. 156-57. Element Books, 1999.

Bernie Siegel, M.D. “The level of stress is determined purely by society. Cultures that place the highest value on a combination of individualism and competition are the most stressful. Those that seem to produce the least stress and have the lowest rates of cancer are close-knit communities in which supportive, loving relationships are the norm, and the elderly retain an active role.”

Love, Medicine and Miracles Harper Paperbacks, 1990.
