High Stress Job Increases Women’s Heart Attack Risk

A new study shows that women with stressful jobs appear to be at 90% increased risk of having a heart attack, stroke and bypass surgery.

For 10 years Dr. Michelle Asha Albert followed 17,000 employed women. They found the risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular events to be 40% higher in women with high stress jobs as compared to less stressed women.

This is a very significant finding and not one to take lightly. Stress is literally killing our population. And, at the very least ruining the quality of life of both men and women. Stress causes or exacerbates 80-85% of all human illness according to the AMA.

Some people just need to get out of a stressful job or situation, but others aren’t able to make this jump. For them to have a high quality of life and be around to play with their grandchildren, specific actions must be taken.

First and foremost, find time during the day to “de-stress”.  This might be just some time by yourself with no distractions where you can just breathe and feel at peace with yourself. No tv, radio or anything else. Just close your eyes and breathe.

Second, get some exercise. The benefits are too numerous to list, but exercise releases the stored up stress chemicals in a healthy positive way. Bare minimum 3 times a week for at least 20 minutes, but even better would be 5 days out of the week. The more stressed you are, the more often you need an outlet.

Think about it this way. When a zebra gets stressed by a lion it runs, and runs hard and fast. When it’s safe again it recovers. All the stress hormones have been spent.

Humans don’t do this. We let our stress hormones pile up. We get stressed and we sit. This just isn’t healthy.

And third, our BAX Aura Neurological Stress Reduction Technology will do wonders to help with pent up stress. It is very important to remove stress caused by environmental, chemical, and food substance reactions. By reprogramming the body with harmonic frequencies, sound, and light we can restore balance to the body.

Stress is a necessary part of life. It’s how we build muscle, create new inventions, fly in airplanes and make our bodies and our world more interesting. But, in excess and uncontrolled it will take its toll on your health, and the health of your friends and family.
