All disease is the result from stress and how our body interacts with that stress. Be it physical stress, chemical stress or emotional stress. Just as being exposed to nutrition-less food, toxins and pollutants affects our bodies, emotional stress affects us too. One of the most powerful emotional stressors is fear. The largest purveyor being 24 hour news; ‘if it bleeds, it leads.’ The fear and anxiety created (often symptomitized by ‘the need to know’) by watching, listening or reading “the news”- which is nothing more than sensationalism-causes a chemical reaction in your brain; much like that of nicotine, to which you become addicted; think adrenaline rush. The muckrakers are no different from tobacco companies. Instead of infusing you with a drug through cigarettes, the media is injecting it straight into your brain through your eyes. Exposure may lead to depression, anxiety, restlessness, sleep deprivation, loss of libido and a heightened level of stress that affects not only your body but mind and soul as well; in extreme cases bleeding from the eyes and anal leakage.
After experimenting on myself, and seeing first hand the wonderful benefits and results that I (like loosing over 15 pounds), my wife and staff experienced we started to offer the Novolife de-tox to cleanse the body, promote optimal function and weight loss. Right now I’m in the beginning of an emotional cleansing. I am fasting from the media. For the next 7 days, possibly longer, I am not going to watch, listen to or read the news, no yahoo news, no political blogs no nothing. I am going to disconnect. And so should you. Read a book (no puppies with cancer stuff either), do something productive, exercise, make-out or something else uplifting. You’ll be surprised how good you will feel, not just emotionally, but physically as well.
