The Effect of Stress

The video collage below is 51 minutes. It features Bruce Lipton, a cellular biologist who has taken his work to many, many layers. His style is quite intense, in part, because he knows a lot of stuff and is offering really important connecting into a story.

In this piece, he talks about the health of human body (cells) and how patterned stress (and patterns of perceived stress) can limit the function of the body. When we see a lion, our body gives preference to where reaction and power needs to be — in our arms and legs so that we can run. If we feel that threat all of the time, other systems in our body shrink, including immune systems.

It’s worth a listen. Thanks Teresa for sharing this with me — Teresa is incorporating many aspects of working with stress into her core work.
