Stress, Your Immune System and the Swine Flu
The media frenzy surrounding the swine flu has sent people into mass hysteria. Churches aren’t allowing hand shaking or hugging. Public events are being canceled. The sale of face masks and antibacterial cleansers has skyrocketed.
An emotional roller coaster of stress, fear and trauma can substantially depress the ability of our immune system to protect us when something like the Swine Flu comes along. Research has documented the negative effect of stress on our health and our immune system.
So, what can you do to protect yourself?
The first thing everyone tells you is “don’t panic”.
Eat a good diet, exercise, and get enough sleep. Practice scrupulous hygiene by washing your hands regularly. Keep your distance from people who have symptoms—and if you’re sick, do everyone else a favor and stay home.
Julian Whitaker, MD, in his Health and Healing newsletter, recommends that you make a point to bolster your immune system. Take a good daily multivitamin and mineral supplement, along with extra vitamin D (2,000-5,000 IU/day) and vitamin C (a minimum of 1,000mg/day).
TFT can be used to quickly reduce stress, fear and anxiety on a regular basis. The same simple algorithms given in our Daily Stress Busting program, have been demonstrated to normalize cortisol levels (Cortisol is a steroid hormone secreted by the adrenal cortex that has been intensively studied by behavioral medicine researchers because of its association with behavioral adaptation and the stress response, physiological reactivity to environmental stressors and immunocompetence).
Your best defense is to reduce or eliminate stress and fear with Thought Field Therapy – a simple, non-invasive proven techniques.
Alvaro Hernandez, TFT Adv, has already begun using TFT to help fellow citizens in Mexico City.
“Last weekend at the middle of this crisis we were able to give a TFT Training.
We were more than 40 people… most came were wearing protective masks, scared and trying to keep distance among them. The first thing we did as introduction was to treat the fear and trauma of the group, the result was incredible.
At the end of the training I ask Dr Lammoglia a well known Doctor and owner of a TV program to come to give the certificates. People were so grateful for the course and the TFT techniques that after getting their certificate most of them stayed until they were able to personally thank us and take a personal picture.
All of these people are now helping scared people all over, and some of them have called to thank us for teaching TFT in this difficult moment.
I teach them also that the use of TFT can improve our immunological system and many I know are still tapping for this reason.
I have not suspended my private practice and yesterday I treated a panic case related to the fear of getting the swine flu.
As usual TFT is being a great help in time of crisis.
Thank you Roger!”
