How Humans Heal

In this episode, I'm going to be talking about what to do if and when you receive abnormal pap smear results. That's because so many women contact me saying, "I just got back my pap smear results, and it's showing abnormal. It's showing HPV detected, and now I'm in such a state of fear, confusion, anxiety, and stress about this. What do I do?"  Oftentimes, your doctor may not explain to you what the results mean or what your options are.

How Humans Heal

In this episode, I'm going to be talking about menstrual related health issues and how they're connected to testing positive for high-risk HPV virus strains.  This is a really important conversation because a lot of times when it comes to testing positive for the HPV virus, women are left with not enough information and their doctors are not providing that information. The doctors are doing what they're trained to do, which is important, to address abnormal cells.  What's happening, unfortunately, is women are left in a state of fear and not knowing what they can do to prevent...

More Episodes

In this episode of How Humans Heal, I share about my theory of health and healing, and my newest book, Master Your Stress, Reset Your Health, which is due to release on May 3, 2022. 

 

 

There are many misconceptions about stress and what to do about. So much so that I am even hesitant to say the word. Sometimes simply the word stress causes us to stress more! 

 

So how can we NOT stress about stress? How can we be healthy and thrive even when exposed to stress?  

 

This is the question I have asked myself… throughout my whole life. And I want to share with you what I have discovered. 

 

-Stress is part of being human 

 

-You’re going to have a response to stress – that is a given 

 

-We need to find a way to have compassion for ourselves as stressed humans 

 

-And figure out how to support ourselves under stress 

 

 

How do we give ourselves enough support to recover from stress? 

 

I believe what we are lacking is anti-stress. We have a deficiency of anti-stress. 

 

That is when symptoms happen. Anxiety, depression, sleep issues, cancer, fertility issues, digestive troubles, infections, etc. 

 

It is not just about age. We can’t blame all our health issues on age and throw in the towel, so to speak. 

 

I’ve definitely had times of more stress than anti-stress.  

 

I had migraines for over 20 years. My migraines taught me – if I don’t have enough stress recovery, I’m going to get a migraine. 

 

I didn’t want to be reliant on a medication.  

 

I wanted to look deeper and figure out how not to have a migraine.  

 

The same can be true for what you are experiencing in your health.  

 

The irony is that the solution is not to overdo anti-stress either.  

 

We are so willing to push harder, do more, and put in more of an effort… but too much of anything can result in more of a stress response. 

 

So we have to outsmart stress and really we need to outsmart our own stress response. 

 

It is in the gentle-ness that we get the most stress recovery.  

 

In the process of recovering from stress myself, I identified a 3-phase.  

 

If we skip one of the steps, stress recovery backfires. 

 

We need all 3 phases to become resilient to stress. But it is not exactly the same process for all of us. 

 

As humans, we all have a stress response that involves cortisol and adrenaline, but in actuality it is different for each of us. 

 

Since our response is individualized, our treatment needs to be individualized as well. 

 

To be most effective about your stress recovery, you need to first know how your body responds to stress so that you can then give yourself the correct treatment to recover. 

 

For example, your cortisol could be too high, or too low, at different times of day. 

 

And your adrenaline could be too high or too low. 

 

I caution you not to assume that we all have the same response to stress.  

 

And not just your immediate response to stress, but how stress affects you over time. 

 

When you are in stress mode, and experiencing symptoms, we need to know your cortisol and adrenaline levels.  

 

This is what I refer to as your Stress Type.  

 

Don’t just guess. It’s important to treat based on your stress type in order to effectively recover from stress because the treatment is different for each Stress Type. 

 

Even once you know your Stress Type, it is important to understand the concept of hormesis in order to optimize your recovery. 

 

Hormesis is a concept that tells us that your body will respond to change. A small change can create a beneficial effect. Too big of a change ends up triggering a stress response.  

 

This is why in our stress recovery we need to harness small changes that result in a beneficial effect in your body.  

 

At the same time, we need to not overdo it, or else we will find ourselves right back where we started.  

 

By implementing small incremental changes based on your Stress Type, you are increasing your chances of recovering from stresses of all types more quickly and efficiently.  

 

I want you to be successful becoming resilient to stress and improving your energy, sleep, focus, mood and how you feel in your body.  

 

I know it is possible to recover from trauma, loss, overwhelm and the stress we are exposed to as humans. And to be able to feel good doing what we feel passionate about.  

 

It is possible to thrive even when stressed. I want that for you. If this resonates for you, be sure to order my new book – Master Your Stress, Reset Your Health – and follow along with me this month and next as I guide you to use the information in the book. You can order the book at your favorite book seller and then come to DoctorDoni.com/msrh to tell me you ordered the book. This way I can send you gifts and support and include you in the special LIVE stress reset starting May 2nd.  

 

I can’t wait to support you in the process of becoming resilient to stress!
