NLP what is it?

NLP is the study of our thinking, behavior and language patterns to help us build sets of strategies for everything we do – for making decisions, building relationships, starting up a business, coaching a team of people, inspiring and motivating others, creating balance in our lives, negotiating our way through the day and, above all, learning how to learn.

Also it is about how one deals with STRESS. The are three stages of stress.

Stress what is it how does it affect your body and mind?


Below is an explanation of what stress is. In the Alarm state the mineral sodium goes up as the Adrenals kick in.


Your sodium to potassium ratio gets affected. Therapy can be used, NLP, neuro linguistic programming, to deal with it.


Hair mineral analysis can be used to test what state you are in. The long term affects, or stress. Your blood will do anything to keep in balance homeostasis. It robs the body of minerals. Therefore they have to be replaced to be healthy



  • Hans Selye (1907- 1982) was a Hungarian endocrinologist, first to give a scientific explanation for biological stress.



  • Hans Selye explained his stress model based on physiology and psychobiology as General Adaptation Syndrome (GAS).



  • His model states that an event that threatens an organism’s well-being (a stressor) leads to a three-stage bodily response:


◦Stage 1: Alarm



◦Stage 2: Resistance



◦Stage 3: Exhaustion




  • He explained about hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis) system which prepares the body to cope with stress.



  • Selye also explained about a local adaptation syndrome which refers to the inflammatory response and repair processes occur at the local site of tissue injury as in small, topical injuries, such as contact dermatitis which may lead to GAS if the local injury is severe enough.





  • Stage 1: Alarm


◦Upon encountering a stressor, body reacts with “fight-or-flight” response and sympathetic nervous system is activated.



◦Hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin released into the bloodstream to meet the threat or danger.



◦ The body’s resources now mobilized.




  • Stage 2: Resistance


◦Parasympathetic nervous system returns many physiological functions to normal levels while body focuses resources against the stressor.



◦Blood glucose levels remain high, cortisol and adrenalin continue to circulate at elevated levels, but outward appearance of organism seems normal.



◦Increase HR, BP, breathing



◦Body remains on red alert.




  • Stage 3: Exhaustion


◦If stressor continues beyond body’s capacity, organism exhausts resources and becomes susceptible to disease and death.






  • Stress: is a condition in which the human system responds to changes in its normal balanced state.



  • Stressor: is anything that is perceived as challenging, threatening or demanding.



  • Eustress or positive stress: Manageable stress which can lead to growth and enhanced competence.



  • Distress or Negative stress: Uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress is destructive.



  • Adaptation: is the change that takes place as a result of the response to a stressor.



  • Coping: a balancing act between biological, psychological, and social process.


◦Adaptive Coping Contribute to resolution of the stress response



◦Maladaptive Coping –Strategies that cause further problems



◦Active Coping – Actively seeking resolution to the stress




  • Homeostasis: refers to a steady state within the body and various physiologic mechanisms within the body respond to internal changes to maintain a relative constancy in the internal environment.



  • Resilience: Resistant quality that permits a person to recovery quickly and thrive in spite of adversity





  • Hans Selye’s theory profoundly influenced the scientific study of stress.



  • Stress is a state produced by a change in the environment and the nature of the stressor is variable.



  • The individual appraises and copes with the stress, to reach the goal of adaptation.



  • The process is called coping with the stress, and it is achieved through a compensatory process with physiologic and psychological components.

What’s it all about – Its all about you.


Its all about the meta programs or the psychological programs that make up your personality.

Its all about the strategies you run, e.g. you have strategy to brush your teeth, you have a strategy you use for anxiety or depression – Perception is projection

Its all about the stresses you have in your  life emotional, physical, and chemical

Its all about the diet you eat, and the oxidization rate you have

Its all about the mineral balance or imbalance you have – there are mineral ratios that when they are to far out of the norm affect your physical and emotional health

And thresholds of absolute amounts of minerals, that when you fall below these it  results in emotional concerns

Its all about the toxins in your life, that are stress as well

You get more of what you focus on.

Its all about how you perceive time

Its all about you neurology –

There are NLP presepts  that describe what NLP believes

And as you sit there looking at his page, feeling the way you do, realize: Working together we can make a plan, and, having relieved your stress, coming out the other side, a  new Healthier You.
