What are You Taking In

I’ve got a question for you. How long can you go without eating any food before it has any real harmful effects on your body? How long do you think you can go? Most people can go at least a week, maybe longer.

How long can you go without any water? Approximately 24 to 48 hours for most people. If you don’t have some your kidneys will start having problems, your body has to have water because you’re even losing water through the moisture in your breath. So you have to have water at least every few days.

How long can you go without air? If you don’t have fresh oxygen every three, four minutes, your heart and your brain they both begin to deteriorate. They begin to degenerate within minutes; three or four minutes.

So what is the most important thing you consume on a regular basis? Air of course. That simple little exercise, ‘seven down to one count breathing’ that we just did, absolutely helps normalize your body. Bring some balance into your breathing, your bloodstream, your immune system; it helps normalize things a bit. Read more »

If breathing is so good for us, we need to spend a little bit of time with it. I’m going to teach you a brief exercise that works very well. I have taught this to tens of thousands of people, through seminars, during counseling, etc. This is a piece of cake. It’s so easy anybody can do it.

Breathe Your Brainwaves Calmer

Here’s how to use the “Seven Down To One Count Breathing Process”. You can do this any time you want. You can do it driving, taking a shower, sitting on the toilet, laying in bed, having dinner, talking to friends. You can do it anywhere. But if you want to do it the deepest, close your eyes.

Some people say, “Oh I can’t visualize anything.” Yes you can. For instance, if I say ‘red apple’, do you know what a red apple looks like? Certainly you do. I know you have at least some idea what it looks like. You may not see it vividly and distinctly but you know what it looks like; that’s a visualization. Read more »

Brainwaves & Breathing

The word stress is a derivative of a Latin word, “stringere.” Stringere means to bind tightly. And unfortunately that’s what many of us to do ourselves on a regular and ongoing basis. We tie ourselves in knots over things. We bind ourselves up. We get kinks in our necks and tight muscles in our back, and we move too fast and we stretch things out of whack. We bind ourselves up. We tie ourselves in knots.

Back in the 1950’s and 1960’s, two medical researchers, Dr. Thomas Holmes and Dr. Richard Rahe created what was called the Life Change Index, or the Social Readjustment Rating Scale. They spent many years researching stress and the affects on the normal human life, body, illness, adjustment, the way that you are resilient or not resilient.

They looked for many, many, many different ways to be able to test whether you were in a stress response or not. Well when they finally figured out how to do that, what they realized was that stress is a brainwave pattern response. Read more »

Stress & Illness

Let’s talk for a moment about distress. In our world today, psychosomatic and stress related illnesses are huge. Medical research says that somewhere between 50% to 80% of illnesses have a psychosomatic or a stress related component. That sounds a little high to me, but research supports that’s correct.

I’ve dealt with many psychosomatic illnesses over my 30 year career. In many cases, when we change what’s going on inside of the person’s head, the problem and the health issue reduces or goes away.

Included are things like cardiovascular problems, cancers, strokes, sexual dysfunctions, ulcers, colitis, asthma, allergies, hypertension and high blood pressure oftentimes, insomnia can be, frequent colds, and at times headaches are created by this.

The four most common disorders that are prominent in the U.S., in Europe and in Japan, the big industrialized nations, are thought of as afflictions of civilization. These four major illnesses – cardiovascular problems, cancers, arthritis and respiratory diseases fall into this stress related category. Those oftentimes have at least some psychosomatic or stress related component to them. Read more »

Your Emotions Can Physically Harm You

When I was growing up, my father owned a restaurant in Twin Falls, Idaho. He spent most of the time when at the restaurant, being the front man. He did a lot of the schmoozing with customers, helping the staff, and running the day-to-day operations there. His partner was more in the background, more silent.

One evening, while my father was there working at the restaurant, his partner came in through the back door, unbeknownst to my dad. The partner began to just give the cooks a very hard time, and was picking at the waitresses. My father and he had been having these kind of problems for awhile. Because his partner had started drinking way too much, and would show up at the restaurant drunk.

My dad heard this noise coming from back in the kitchen, and couldn’t figure out what was going on. So he went back, and here’s his partner raising havoc; yelling at the cooks, giving the waitresses a hard time. My father got furious. He and his partner had had arguments about this before.

He told his partner, “Get out of here! This is inappropriate.” His partner refused and told him to mind his own business. Dad blew up! Dad grabbed his partner, and bodily threw him out the back of the restaurant. Read more »

Various Types of Stressors

Environmental Stressors

The first type of stress is “environmental” stressors. Environmental stressors and pressures are things like the quality of the air you breathe. If you’re living in an environment where you’re regularly inhaling massive amounts of chemical fumes, smoke and pesticides, it can have a very detrimental effect. Or if the air quality is bad because you work in a factory and the air scrubbers don’t do a good job, you will be affected. Air quality may have a major impact on your physiology, energy, mental clarity, and your ability to be resilient.

“Noise” stress is another environmental pollutant. Noise in our day and age is huge because of traffic, airplanes and machinery just to name a few. There was a research study done in New York City approximately 15 years ago. They analyzed children who lived right in the middle of the city, on a main street, on a lower or street level in the building, where there’s lots of street noise.

What they found was that the noise which came in, because it never really abated, most children didn’t notice it. But if they were to change their living situation to a quieter environment, that on average the children had a grade point jump of .4. So if they were a 2.5 student on average, they would jump to 2.9, just by getting away from the noise pollution which was affecting them. Read more »

Welcome everyone!

I’m Dr. Larry Iverson. Our topic today is “Overcoming Stress and Pressure – For a happier, healthier, more robust life!”.

We’re going to talk about some of the causes of stress, what brings it up in our lives, what “eggs it on”, in effect, and drives it forward. We’re going to talk about the effects of stress, both good and bad, because not all stress is bad. You need some to get you moving, to do things, to be motivated. We’re going to talk about some of the things you can do to overcome the negative ones and enhance the positive ones. Thirdly, we’re going to talk about things you can do about it, what are some of the simple strategies you can take to make a difference in your life.

You can really live your life haphazardly, or you can live it on purpose, and it’s a choice. With stress it is also a choice. No matter what your situation, whether it changes or not, there’s things you can do about it, so let’s talk about some choices. Read more »
