Dr. Farid Mostamand.
Stress and negative thought are energy that affects our brains and are the root cause of most of the illness.
Stress creates worries that led to negative thoughts and emotions. This negative thought affects our body through our autonomic nervous system.
Our negative thought releases the neurotransmitter in the brain, which travels through our automatic nervous system and signals the adrenal gland to produce more cortisol, stress hormone. Cortisol disrupts our optimal health equilibrium and make us sick.
Based on research at The University of Nebraska published in the American Medical Journal, 70% of the doctor’s office visits are a result of stress. The disease is real, but the cause of the diseases is not virous, bacteria or some organs’ problems. The cause of diseases is stress.
Let me clarify this concept with an example. According to the American diabetic association, over 35% of Americans suffer from diabetes that results in long term sickness, disability, and death.
In many cases there nothing wrong with the pancreas. It functions normally and produces adequate insulin to lower the sugar level in our blood.
But constant stress, negative thought, and fear increase the level of cortisol in the body. This continuous high level of cortisol negatively affects our body and make us sick. The stress hormone, cortisol, increases the cell membrane resistance to sugar and it cannot get into the cell and as result the sugar level increase in our blood and causes damages to our blood vessels, organs, and our nervous system.
Medication to bring down the level of the sugar in our body is not the right solution as there is nothing wrong with Pancreas or insulin secretion. It is the stress that caused the high level of sugar to circulate in our blood. The sugar cannot get into the cell due to the cell membrane resistance created by cortisol.
The drug will damage the other organs. Then the doctors prescribe more medication to treat damaged liver and kidney. This vicious cycle of drug and side effect is the reason that drug and medical errors are the third common cause of preventable death in the world.
While negative thought, anxiety, and pessimism affect the brain to signal the glands to secret stress hormone that make us sick,
With the same mechanism, Optimism, happy thought, and emotions will affect the brain physiology that signals our endocrine glands to secret hormones and enzymes like Oxytocin and dopamine to heal the body.
