“The hormones released by the body during the stress response are great in times of emergency – when your life may really be at stake. But stress hormones are harmful to your body at other times – causing weight gain and an estimated 95% of all trips to doctor’s offices. Stress – which is caused by thinking about things that make you feel bad – weakens the immune system, shuts down the reproductive system, and slows or stops digestion among other things; all of which lead to other problems – some of which are quite serious. Stress also makes you dumb by robbing your thinking centers of blood and oxygen.
Happiness, on the other hand, turns off the stress response and releases chemicals which are beneficial and healing to the body – boosting the immune system, and all the systems of the body. When you can change your thoughts, you can change your physical condition.”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
