If you suffer from a chronic illness, what exacerbates your symptoms the most?
Is it the weather? Doing chores? Anxiety, physical and/or emotional stress? The common cold, flu or infection? Or is it something else?
The condition of your intestines and digestive system and how they are functioning must be considered in any illness and body problem from colds/flu to arthritis/fibermyalgia. If things are clogged up, bad results occur. Every problem with the body starts there: in the stomach and intestines.
Many people over-eat, over-drink and live chaotically. If they are not happy, they will turn to food or alcohol for comfort. These have detrimental effects of the smooth functioning of the organs and body systems. If you are emotional and stressed, this shuts down the smooth functioning of the intestines.
So yes, stress is a major factor, especially in regards to cancer. If you are stressed, it affects the brain and the functioning of the stomach/intestines is controlled by the brain. The brain needs to operate with ease. Therefore, in conclusion, I believe, dis-ease results when the brain and the digestive system are not free-flowing.
What promotes health?
… basically, just being happy!
