Stress can be as deadly as diet to your health. Web MD says it is not a reaction to an event but how you interpret that event. So it is in your head and therefore can be changed. Life throws a lot of different experiences at us. How we see these experiences may differ drastically from how others see them. We may view an experience as fun while someone else feels stressed over it. Learn to control how you interpret life and lessen your stress.

WebMD saysImagine that you’ve just left your cardiologist’s office. He’s told you that you have to make some changes. Your blood pressure is way over the limit at 170 over 100 and your LDL cholesterol (that’s the “bad” kind) is hovering right around 200. He conducted an exercise cardiac stress test, putting you on the treadmill and increasing the speed and elevation periodically while monitoring your heart — and he didn’t like the results.” Dean Ornish tells WebMD that you can change your heart condition, if you have one, or prevent one if you are health by your diet. What we eat effects what I call our “Epigenetic Program” it keeps us in tune or puts us out of tune. When we are out of tune we are more susceptible to diseases. How in tune are you?
