    The American lifestyle has evolved over the last several decades to undermine the body's ability to reduce stress.  This lifestyle makes us more vulnerable than ever before to stress because of the amount of chemicals that have been introduced through the food supply, prescription drugs and products and lifestyle choices we make every day without thinking.  During the episode, we will recommend 3 things to do immediately to make your body more resistant to stress and add to the list as time permits.  This episode is extremely important!

    Beating Stress, Environmental and Financial Stress

    in Health

    We're going to continue where we left off last week, dealing with the ruinous effects of stress on our bodies. There is one source of environmental stress that it nearly ubiquitous, the chemicals in the plastics of bottled water and household detergents and cleaners. We talk about how to avoid them and the problems they produce. Then we tackle the deadliest form of stress, the Number One cause of death in the US and probably the world, financial stress! 

    I believe I am one of the few Holistic Health Practitioners that addresses this problem. But if we are going to talk about health, how can you ignore the Number One killer?  How do we, the student burdened with college debt, the young family struggling to make ends meet on two salaries, the soon to be or already retired person, afraid that they will run out of money before they run out of life, make more money to eliminate the fear, worry and stress that can sicken and kill us?

    To that end, we have invited Winston Thompson to host a Seminar in Philadelphia, Pa next Saturday, the 7th of November. Winston was a Corporate CPA with one of the legendary, Big Eight accounding firms in NY, Arthur Anderson. He then left to start his own tax and accounting firm. Winston Thjompson and Co.which he has grown into one of the top tax firms in Brooklyn, NY. Winston will share his expertise and his experience in starting and running a small business, even examining Franchises,in which he is also an expert, to help fledgling business owners avoid the many misteps and pitfalls so many of us make when startingn our own businesses.

    Stress, Emotional Labor and the Holidays

    in Spirituality

    In life we must learn how to eliminate as much stress as possible, minimize problems, and handle or work through broken dreams.  There is no such thing as a stress free, problem free happy all the time life.  We must develop self-awareness and recognize that I am responsible for my own well-being.  Often our stress, worry and anxiety start long before the holiday season begins.  Let’s talk about what stress is, how we can identify it in ourselves, ways to reduce it.

    Stress vs Anxiety

    in Religion

    Do you ever feel stressed?  That's a pretty ridiculous question nowadays, right?  Of course you're stressed.  Stressed about work, stressed about bills, stressed about whether you'll have enough (fill in the blank).  So, what's the difference between stress and anxiety?  God said, "Don't be anxious for anything."  Stress, believe it or not, can actually be a good thing.  Listen this week as Dr Pauline and Catherine talk about the differences between stress and anxiety and what God's Word has to say about it.  

    As always, we welcome your comments and questions through Facebook (Dunamas Center Ministries), and Twitter (@YourDunamasLife).


    Watch for Dr Pauline's new book, "Won't Somebody Please Hear Me?  Healing from Birth Traumatomology Syndrome"...Coming THIS MONTH!

    Traumatic Stress and Black America

    in Current Events

    Every therapist agrees that the impact of a traumatic event goes beyond physical damage. The emotional toll can result in a wide range of intense emotions and it takes time to recover emotional equilibrium. Being Black in America can be extraordinarily stressful.  Being treated as “second class” citizen, called names, and being excluded shatter all sense of security, causing feelings of helpless and vulnerability in a dangerous world where  feelings of anxiousness and  uncertainty.  These unsettling thoughts and feelings can only fade if life circumstances change. How to cope with feelings of injustice, racism and covert discrimination is a topic of debate in many Black American communities.

    People react in different ways to traumatic events. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to think, feel or respond. The American public is intolerant of the reactions and feelings of Black Americans in Baltimore when they rioted protesting the murder of an unarmed Black American man. The city was put under curfew and the street activists were called “thugs”. There was no effort to send in counselors to help the “traumatized” people with the emotional event. 

    Persons who ignore feelings will slow the healing process; however, in the Black community, “forgive and forget” is the tenet. Following the killing of nine Black people in Charleston, South Carolina in a church during a prayer meeting by a young White American, statements of “we forgive him” were made before the dead was buried. That is not benevolence; that is denial.

     The symptoms of traumatic stress include physical manifestations as well as emotional, such as, pounding  heart, feelings of choked up, stomach churning, racing thoughts, raised blood pressure, headaches and difficulty sleeping.
