Stress: The X Factor Between Staying Healthy or Getting Sick

Featuring the teachings of Dr Gabor Maté

People will change their diet, start exercising regularly, take supplements and even pursue medical attention to reduce stress and improve their quality of life. The truth is, however, many will remain more likely to develop an illness or disorder if the mental and emotional side of health is neglected. One of the most efficient ways to improve your well being is with quantum healing.

“Quantum healing” refers to a pseudoscientific mixture of ideas which purportedly draw from quantum mechanics, psychology, philosophy, and neurophysiology. 

Ultimately, stress is the X factor between staying healthy and getting sick. We can compensate for things happening in life, but the only way to truly transform our health is by dealing with what lies underneath; the Root Cause

Let’s Explore the Science Behind the Statement

Dr. Gabor Maté, a renowned physician, author, and speaker, has spent his career exploring the connection between physical and mental health. Born in Hungary in 1944 just as the Nazis invaded Budapest, his family moved to Canada in 1956. Eventually, he became a family physician in Vancouver. Dr. Maté has since become a sought-after speaker and author of several books, including “In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction”, “When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress”, and “Scattered Minds: A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder”.

Dr. Maté’s perspectives on addiction, mental health, and stress have gained international attention over the last twenty years. He has developed an approach to understanding these issues that is both compassionate and grounded in scientific research.

Dr. Maté believes that many of our current physical issues are rooted in early childhood experiences and lifelong trauma, and that addressing our underlying emotional pain is essential to healing.

He believes that chronic stress, particularly when experienced in childhood, can have profound effects on the brain and body, leading to a range of physical and emotional symptoms. In “When the Body Says No,” Dr. Maté explores the link between stress and disease over a wide range of case studies over several years of research, ultimately concluding that chronic stress contributes to an array of illnesses, including cancer, autoimmune disorders, and heart disease.

Dr. Maté’s perspective on stress and mental health is also informed by his background in Psychoneuroimmunology, the study of the interactions between the mind, nervous system, and immune system. He’s found that the mind and body are intimately connected, and that emotional stress can have a direct impact on physical health.

How Does This Apply to Daily Life?

Dr Maté argues that our modern society is particularly stressful, with many people living in a constant state of chronic stress and overwhelm. He believes that this chronic stress is a major contributor to the rise of mental health issues and chronic illness, and that addressing it is essential to promoting overall health and wellbeing.

That’s where quantum healing, such as working with sound vibrations through a sound bath, can be monumental in clearing energy blockages and past trauma. Working through the Laws of Physics, the sound vibrations permeate your energy field, allowing you to connect and clear subconsciously, while also rebalancing your nervous system.
