Stress Really Matters

Women who suffer stress are twice as likely to develop breast cancer. Nothing will affect cells more than the stress, we ourselves allow ourselves to be put under. How much is too much stress? Do we wait for caner to be diagnosed to find out? Women with advanced breast cancer who have abnormal daytime levels of cortisol, a hormone released in response to stress, are significantly more likely to die sooner than patients with normal levels of the hormone, Stanford University researchers reported back in 2000.

For Lothar Hirneise, cancer starts with stress: “Cancer cannot exist without stress. One hundred percent impossible! There are a lot of debates on types of stress — physical and psychological— but for a cell it doesn’t matter where the stress comes from.”

Scientists know that the mechanism by which a cell dies, that is, apoptosis, necrosis, pyroptosis, or autophagic cell death, often depends on its ability to cope with the conditions to which it is exposed. The adaptive capacity of a cell ultimately determines its fate when it comes under stress. The strength or what we can call a cells adaptive capacity is directly related to nutritional sufficiency and proper cellular respiration that removes all toxins and wastes through the cell wall. Chronic stress does all the wrong things to the body’s cells, even preventing them from dying by turning them cancerous. Chronic stress needs to be seen for what it is, a highway to the grave. Stress is not just something that we feel it is something our cells feel.

The information about what level of stress can be dangerous is well documented and can be expressed in a form of precise numerical indexes. The VedaPulse estimates the stress level by using academician Baevsky’s stress index, which was originally used to assess the adaptation abilities of astronauts, but is now more widely used.
