Conventional wisdom has it that no matter how hard your workday, you’re supposed to turn into a sociable family member when you get home and “communicate” with your spouse. But now a New York University study indicates that complete withdrawal may be a healthy and effective way to cool out after a tough day.

Today, stress-related illnesses such as hypertension, heart disease and ulcers, collectively will kill more Americans than cancer. Others such as asthma, obesity, bad posture, tension and dietary problems will cause chronic debilitating illnesses. According to statistics complied by the Center of Disease Control, the major causes of premature death in the United States are “diseases of living” rather than viral diseases. As the incidence of stress-related diseases continues to grow, the Center predicts that within the next ten years, one out of every one hundred people will unnecessarily die from stress-related illnesses.

Thanks to recent hurricanes Wilma and Frances two big trees in my yard toppled over, and within days their leaves, bark, and branches showed signs of decline. Without their connection to the earth trees get sick and die. The same is true for us people.

An active spiritual practice promotes our health and wellness, providing invisible healing, calmness, and peace of mind. We can heal ourselves, those around us, and even the planet through spiritual motivation and a renewed feeling of connection to something larger than ourselves. Regardless of religious tradition or dogma, healing and the Higher Power are interrelated.

Dogma, ritual and rhetoric have confused the issues of spirituality in our lives. Too often, our time for contemplation and openness is spent on studying rules, regulations, and interpretations of the theories that others have conjured up. Many spend inordinate amounts of time searching for the true meaning rather than living life itself. This syndrome has been manufactured through the way that spirituality has been presented to us. Religion, which is credited with the establishment of civilization, has often been the very center of why we individually do not find our greatest purpose. Community is a necessity and spiritual organizations play a major role in formulating this vital arena. We must never forget that for community and society to further itself we as people must open up our possibilities to greater spiritual practice.

The Role of Emotions in Wellness and Disease

Emerson said, “Nothing can bring you peace except yourself.” But how can one achieve inner peace when the decidedly discordant outer world insistently impinges upon the self? The answer to this most critical question is supplied by Goethe: “Every man ought to begin with himself to make his own happiness first, from which the happiness of the whole world will at last unquestionably follow.”

Because we all daydream and night dream, we know we have an internal world that we can experience in both positive and negative ways. Guided imagery requires you to go to that inner world and construct a place where you’ll feel safe and relaxed whenever you imagine yourself being there. The core of the guided imagery approach to stress reduction lies in imagining a positive experience in order to stop, interrupt, or prevent a physical stress reaction.

Health has many important components associated with it. I have found the most immediate to be faith. Faith is locking into a higher power and then obeying what that higher power wants you to do. Hopefully, that higher power is the Heavenly Father. When one submits their will to the higher power and obeys, a whole new dimension opens up. It is like taking the red pill in the Matrix. As one takes steps along this journey, an entirely improved and different dynamic goes into effect.

Due to our poor choices from childhood through adulthood, most of us need to recover from physical and emotional issues. These have thrown us out of balance and caused disease or semi-disease to bloom. Many of us do not even acknowledge that we need to improve our condition, since, in our minds we have reduced what health is, to “not being diagnosed with a disease”.   We take for granted that the aches and pains, confusion and fears are all merely the standard fare of living. We must once again recapture the inner strength and vitality of TRUE HEALTH, which is our BIRTH-RIGHT.

At first glance, Nutripuncture is a surprising way of doing acupuncture with homeopathic pills instead of needles. This is a very convenient way that provides everyone the opportunity to restore the energy/vital currents of their body by themselves. In January 2001 the “dark field analysis” (a live blood test) was performed by Anna Maria Clement at Hippocrates Health Institute, Florida. This revealing test showed immediate and substantial results the body had in the response to Nutripuncture.

It?s like the age-old preponderance of which came first — the chicken or the egg? Does stress cause hypertension or does hypertension create stress? Which precedes the other?

In mind/body medicine, we view a person’s emotional status as important, if not more important, than their physical status. We know that how someone is feeling has everything to do with their physical prognosis - their energy for healing, their pain level and long term survival. In mind/body medicine, we believe a person’s emotions reveal their state of consciousness. Disturbances in the bio-energy field reflect disturbances in one’s consciousness. These disturbances precede illness.
