12 Types of Stress To Eliminate From Your Life

November 30th, 2009 · No Comments

I recently finished producing this video for Dr. CE Gant. The video – Stop Aging and Stay Well – identifies the 12 types of stressors that are at the root cause of all medical and psychiatric disorders, premature aging and death. The video is now available at the web site of Dr. CE Gant

Stress is defined as any mental or bodily tension resulting from factors which tend to alter an existent equilibrium. Most people who abuse drugs are doing it because they are not coping well in society and they are stressed out. Chronic stress can lead to distress, defined as pain, anxiety, physical or mental suffering, which is often diagnosed as a medical or psychiatric disorder.

Most people vaguely realize that chronic stress is harmful, but they can’t quite identify what it is until distress arises, and even then the relationship to stress is often not clear.

One Cigarette Can Have Harmful Effect On Arteries Of Young Healthy Adults

November 13th, 2009 · No Comments

Even just one cigarette can have serious adverse effects on young adults, according to research conducted at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress 2009. The study found that smoking one cigarette increases the stiffness of the arteries in the age group of 18-30 years by as much as 25%.

When arteries become stiff, this increases the risk for heart disease or stroke. The heart has to work harder when the arteries become stiff or rigid which increases resistance in the blood vessels. Even smoking just a few cigarettes a day can impact the health of the arteries. This was revealed in the study when the group of young people in the age range of 20-24 were placed under physical stress (e.g. exercise).
