The Stress – Cancer Link

Posted by Karen Degen on 12th February 2013


When we’re stressed, our bodies are flooded with cortisol and adrenaline.  One study found that cancers grew 275% faster in stressed mice than in unstressed mice.  The scientific consensus is that only 5% to 10% of cancers are hereditary; the rest are due to environmental factors, including stress.

The above is a quote from the book ‘A Genie in your Genes’ by Dr Dawson Church.   If between 90% and 95% of all cancers are caused by stress, and many studies show this to be true, then treating your stress becomes an essential part of your health regime.  Stress isn’t what is happening in your life, its caused by the thoughts and feelings you have about the situation.  That’s where I can help because we can change your thoughts and feelings and therefore change your health.
