MOST HELPFUL POSTS

Your biggest challenge will be navigating the world of stress, in all its forms - chemical, physical, emotional and electro-magnetic, which all lead to the 5th and worst stress issue: oxidative stress that eventually leads to chronic degenerative disease. Depending on how, as a mom, you navigate these challenges in childhood will determine how things turn out for your child/children. One of the doctors, whom I model my work after is a world renowned pain specialist and stress management expert and he says, "The intersection of the four main fields of stress (as above), is the cause of all illness, not some...ALL."
Hundreds and hundreds of scientific studies since the 70's have shown the two main factors that lead to health, happiness, self-motivation and success in adulthood are ensuring children learn how to be stress hardy and resilient, and the three main factors that lead to children growing up to be stress hardy and resilient are exposure to controlled and constructive early stressors, having access to a dedicated, constant and strong support person (read: mom or dad) to help them deal with the stressors productively, and having a strong sense of purpose giving them a reason to put up with stressors.
I recommend that all my clients become absolute experts at stress management, especially new moms.
