In response to above article, which concerns me as it may have many blaming themselves or thinking that happy thoughts, alone, can always be the winning ticket when -- sure, thoughts matter -- but there is so much more to it.

Just because our thoughts might be able to help does not mean that our thoughts necessary are the cause of the problem.

If one breaks a leg, sure calming and positive thoughts are required unless proper medical care can intervene. And such calming thoughts can absolutely help.

Yet, bad thoughts did not cause the leg to break nor will positive thoughts alone heal it.

This presentation goes deep into the brain's structure & chemistry - and a wide range of factors - that contribute to the fight or flight stress reaction.

Of note, too, is the physical stress impact of infections (including lyme) - and so much more. Much of this is what the ILADS conferences, LLMD authors' books have been telling us for a long time:

it's not just adrenal issues but the Hypothalamus, Pituitary . . . and other brain matter and functions that can be damaged by infections (and other factors as well).

And, of course, depression is simply a natural - and logical - physical reaction. There is hope in learning more about the science of it all.

So many key points here - including the brain's absolute requirement for fat & cholesterol, and the damaging impact of elevated glucose and insulin.
