The Impact of Stress & Negative Thinking on your Brain with Dawson Church
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), stress is the health epidemic of the 21st Century. Now so, more than ever, we’re experiencing a heightened sense of physiological and mental stress that makes us more vulnerable to disease, infections, and viruses.
The stress hormones that we produce are effective in shutting down the immune system, which explains why it’s so common to end up with a cold or the flu after prolonged periods of stress.
It’s no secret that stress is bad for us, but did you know that how you respond to stress along with your mindset has a powerful impact on our health?
In the latest season of Transcendence 2, Dawson Church, PhD., and award-winning author, discusses the impact of long term stress and anxiety on the brain. Through his life-long research into gene expression, he shares exactly how our mindset and stress-response can hardwire the brain and create our ‘reality.’
High levels of cortisol, which is the hormone produced by stress, and negative thought patterns can trigger gene expression and result in a cascade of biological effects. Reduced muscle mass, reduced bone density, increased skin wrinkling, and degradation of digestion are typical of long term stress.
However, if we can learn to respond to stress and negative thought patterns with a new outlook by harnessing the power of our thoughts, we can begin to undo these biological effects.
Alongside Dawson, in Episode 3 of Transcendence 2, you’ll hear from Bradley Nelson, Ira Israel, Nick Ortner, Scarlett Lewis, Jennifer Partridge, Philip McKernan, and Kim Morrison to explore how meditation, forgiveness, and the ancient science of Tapping can help to reduce stress, negative thinking, and start us on our healing process.
