Research into stress has now proven that it shortens our lives and it does that by reducing the length of our telomeres, which are like extensions on the ends of our DNA. Once they get too short we die.
Stress floods our bodies with stress hormones such as cortisol and these stress hormones directly shorten the length of these telomeres.
Here is a short video showing what telomeres are:
Here is some scientific research again proving that point:
Accelerated telomere shortening in response to life stress
Numerous studies demonstrate links between chronic stress and indices of poor health, including risk factors for cardiovascular disease and poorer immune function. Nevertheless, the exact mechanisms of how stress gets “under the skin” remain elusive. We investigated the hypothesis that stress impacts health by modulating the rate of cellular aging. Here we provide evidence that psychological stress— both perceived stress and chronicity of stress—is significantly associated with higher oxidative stress, lower telomerase activity, and shorter telomere length, which are known determinants of cell senescence and longevity, in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from healthy premenopausal women. Women with the highest levels of perceived stress have telomeres shorter on average by the equivalent of at least one decade of additional aging compared to low stress women. These findings have implications for understanding how, at the cellular level, stress may promote earlier onset of age-related diseases.
All of the above research sits firmly in the science of epigenetics. Epigenetics tells us that our minds, and the chemicals we produce in response to our thoughts and emotions writes and re-writes our genes (bundles of DNA) and our DNA. 98% of our DNA is thought to be under the control of our minds.
If you want to live a longer life then you need to reduce your stress, both long term (chronic) and everyday (acute).
Here’s the problem, we develop patterns and habits in life and long term stress does become a pattern or habit, and this can be very hard to remove even once the stressors have gone.
Stress gets buried into our non-conscious minds and becomes a source of illness. And to stop the buried stress you need to change the non-conscious mind, re-writing those areas of the mind keeping us in stress.
How to Reduce Stress
These are a few ways to change your non-conscious mind:
Hypnotherapy and tapping therapies like EFT and CTT are excellent ways to relieve stress and ultimately get deep enough into the non-conscious mind to clear out that old energy and those old patterns.
But hypnotherapy can be expensive and EFT can take a long time for you to get there. CTT is pretty good at getting to those old energies, but at the moment it is not well known. Contact us for details and we can put you in touch with people who use it.
Hypnosis audios, as I have written about a lot about are generally not a good form of therapy long term.
Subliminal audios are good, at least the ones with words in, we have taken apart many subliminal products and could find nothing right down to the noise floor of many of the audios. We would be highly suspect about the ones with no words. With those subliminals that had words, they do seem to work well.
So What Can We Do?
We saw the current state of the market some years ago and decided to produce something that really works fast, because that is what we all want, to heal our lives as quickly as possible so we can enjoy a long healthy life.
It took years of research but we did it. We are not going to tell you what we produce is the last word ever in healing, something else will eventually come along, possibly by us, as we understand the mind and epigenetics better, that will make our audios obsolete. We look forward to that day, because progress is what it is all about and what keeps us wa
