Many of the diseases common in our culture are stress-related

Posted on October 28, 2022 at 8:00 AM

When we speak of health, we must also speak of its opposite:

disease. Research has proven that many of the diseases common in our culture are stress-related.

Stress in itself is not bad; it becomes harmful only when it is allowed to accumulate and is not released.

To alleviate its harmful effects, it is important to understand why it happens.


You are in a work situation, You have been asked to perform a task which is not illegal but somewhat unethical.

You think that other people may be hurt by your action.

On the other hand, if you refuse to perform the task, you may lose your job and your financial security.

You are feeling trapped and frustrated.


Whenever you are presented with a situation or opportunity whose result is uncertain but whose outcome is important, stress is present.

Stress then, has three components:


  1. Choice
  2. Uncertainty
  3. Importance.


In most decisions you make, stress is created.

As the decisions become more complex and the implications more complicated, stress is multiplied.

Whenever you are unable to release or "let go" of the stress, it affects your body.


You can eliminate some of the effects of stress by finding someone you trust.

Share your experiences with that person.

Get rid of your negative feelings; learn to "talk out" your stress.


Why am I talking to you about stress?

Because it interferes with your healing process.

Learning to let go of stress will speed your recovery.


Yours in Health,

Why some people are always sick?

Have you ever wondered why some people are always sick?

You probably have friends or relatives that are always complaining about how awful they feel.

It sometimes seems that people want to feel bad.

That's silly, you say.

Why should anyone want to be sick?

Let me tell you how it happens:

A 45-year-old man, Frank, has been ambitious, hard-working, and in excellent health for many years.

He has helped to raise his family; he coached Little League and track.

He always attended the plays, special events and sports activities his children were involved in.

One day, his son committed suicide.

Frank never broke down, not when he learned the news nor later the funeral.

However, he started to have health problems soon afterwards, problems that never went away despite all the medication he tried.

This is a rather extreme example.

However, the message is still clear.

Sometimes people want to feel sick: 

to punish themselves, to get attention or even to "get back at" other people.

Your attitude is extremely important in your recovery.

I have developed a short exercise that will speed your recovery.

To receive utmost benefit, this exercise should be done at least three times each week.

Pick a quiet place where you can be undisturbed for 10-15 minutes.

Sit in a comfortable chair and close your eyes:

  1. Start picturing yourself healthy.
  2. Picture yourself feeling good when you get up in the morning.
  3. Watch yourself go through an entire day without pain.
  4. Treat yourself by going to play golf, bowl or participate in your favorite hobby.
  5. Go through your entire day's activity in your mind…
  6. ...without pain.

Your mental attitude is an important part of the healing process.

That is why I've taken the time to tell you about it.

Yours in Health,

Dr. Reema Zereh B.S., D.C.
