Today we are experiencing a new kind of stress never before seen in human history… and it’s putting our health at far greater risk than most people realize. This new stress is directly linked to the high-tech, fast-paced world we all live in. We all subjected to constant, chronic low levels of physical, chemical and emotional stress all day every day. No human organism is designed to withstand that level of constant stress with manifesting into damage, degeneration and disease.
This constant, chronic low levels of stress creates excessive over-stimulation of the sympathetic (survival nervous system) to the point where the brain can no longer cope or heal or flourish. Brain wave activity shifts, forcing the brain and body to pump out stress hormones like cortisol while depleting the brain of healthy, mood-balancing neurotransmitters like serotonin, and beta-endorphins. The result is brain fog, poor memory, poor sleep, poor adaptability, poor health, pain, depression and anxiety and more.
Is it any wonder that…
- Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States affecting forty million American adults
- Since 1988 the rate of antidepressant use in the United States has increased by 400%
- Today 1 in 10 Americans ages 12 and over take antidepressant medication, the most frequently used drugs by 18–44 year olds
- Among adults over 50, staying mentally sharp now outranks social security and physical health as their top priority and concern.
- More than 2 billion people worldwide currently suffer from brain based health challenges
- Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Epilepsy, Autism, and all neurological disorders are growing at epic proportions
So you see, people are suffering from brain stress without even realizing it’s the root cause of their health issues. All forms of stress cause our brains to go out of balance and rhythm and a brain out of balance always forces the body to go out of balance which manifests in some disease, malfunction or behavioral problem.
All forms of stress…physical, chemical or emotional as well as time stress, relationship stress, job stress, money stress—and on and on—can be called Brain Stress. Brain stress is the driving force behind the neurological epidemic we are now confronted with—and the consequence is the multitude of health epidemics ravaging our nation and planet—not only the major epidemics, but also lesser publicized epidemics such as migraine headaches, insomnia, acid reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, allergies, and rapid aging.
How many of your patients walk through your doors complaining of one or more of those life-shattering symptoms? How many of your patients have someone in their family suffering from these effects of brain stress?
In today’s environment, treating the body without treating the brain is like slapping a fresh coat of paint on a condemned house; it may look like improvement from the outside, but the foundation is destined to crumble.
Fortunately, leaders in the field of mind/body health recognized the devastating effects of brain stress years ago and have spent more than two decades developing safe, drug-free solutions—technologies that work by harmonizing the brain, resulting in a new state that’s the opposite of fight-or-flight, allowing the brain and body to go to work undoing the damage caused by brain stress and physical stress.
These technologies help synchronize the left and right hemispheres of the brain while generating the brain wave activity associated with deep relaxation. This combination gets the brain back in balance and reverses the effects of stress.
