Hi all… Happy 4th of July!
It’s our country’s Independence Day. A good day to also celebrate our independence from worry and fear.
I believe worry and especially fear are tools Leuk can use to lower our resistance. I don’t know if there is any scientific evidence to that – there may be. But I do think it’s possible that stress can lower our body’s defenses.
Two years ago I landed in the hospital with a herniated intestine. The doctor said the problem usually occurred in patients who had previously had an operation. He was surprised it happened to me. I had a very stressful life for 6 years prior and I believe it contributed to the condition.
Some doctor’s will tell you there is no evidence tying stress to disease. I think the reason for the lack of evidence is that there are few studies on the matter.
Anyway, whether or not stress causes weakness in our body’s systems, the stress caused by over worrying and fearing the future can’t be good for us. And, at least psychologically, it reduces our strength and gives it to Leuk.
Let’s fight him by focusing on confidence and love. Make him fear us instead of the other way around.
Have a great Independence Day.
