3 Key Points:

  1. The six stressors that can become detrimental are physical, chemical, electromagnetic (like the sun), psychic (mental/emotional), nutrition, and thermal.
  2. The area of the body that is symptomatic is oftentimes not the area that is at the causal level of the symptom.
  3. Exposure to electromagnetic frequencies that are not healthy for the body, such as 5G systems, wireless systems, all have been shown to increase the heat in the body because the high vibration energy agitates the water cells and heats the body up like a microwave heats up water by agitating water molecules.

Tweetable Quotes:

  • 09:01-09:15 - “We have distress, which is stress where our body is under too much load and it produces too much catabolic stress, which means tissue breakdown where anabolic means growth recovery repair and regeneration.” - Paul Chek
  • 10:14-10:29 - “When we are under periods of distress, then we go into what’s called allostasis, which is a departure from homeostasis. So, if we go lift weights real heavy or do a circuit workout, we are putting an allostatic load on our body.” - Paul Chek
  • 13:01-13:06 - “In the body, all systems talk to each other. There is no such thing as an isolated system.” - Paul Chek
  • 18:29-18:44 - “85% of all orthopedic injuries are idiopathic, which means the patient has no idea where the pain is coming from. All of a sudden they have chronic low back pain, chronic neck pain, etc., but they don’t know how they got it” - Paul Chek
  • 19:02-19:10 - “Thermal imbalances are often created by challenges in the above stressors because stress triggers inflammation.” - Paul Chek
  • 21:31-21:45 - “All of these diet and lifestyle issues are the results of choices that people are making, and behind every action or choice is a belief. All behaviors are driven by beliefs, most of which are unconscious.” - Paul Chek
