The human body has an innate intelligence within it that is responsible for balancing your internal and external environment. You see the stresses of life come in three different types. There is physical, chemical and emotional stress. Typically we are subjected to all three in varying but constant amounts. Innate intelligence can be thought of as the energy that is always 100% at its source. Although it is 100% at its source it can be disturbed on route to its destination by stress. There are many ways to deal with stress. There are positive coping mechanisms like Ki Gong, Chiropractic and Creative Thought and there are negative coping mechanisms like anger, drugs and alcohol. Positive mechanisms yield positive results and negative mechanisms yield negative results. The choice is yours and because you are interested in optimum health you should choose positive, growth oriented mechanisms.
