COVID-19 stress related deaths are taking their toll in South Africa.

8 March 2021, Monday

 

 

“While government recorded a total of 5,940 deaths to Covid-19 by 22 July, a Medical Research Council (MRC) report has found that “In the period 6 May – 14 July 2020, there has been an excess of 17,090 deaths from natural causes”. 

 

The Covid-19 death statistics focus only on those who have contracted the virus, but there are further startling statistics that are now taking their toll – called ‘EXCESS DEATHS’.

The duration of the pandemic – coupled with the unprecedented lock-down period – are the major reasons behind an increasing number of ‘excess deaths’.

A significant number of these deaths can be attributed to surging societal stress levels, as the pandemic continues to cause death, destroy lives and devastate businesses and families alike.

Pertinent are the increasing number of deaths due to cancer, heart attack, addiction and depression – and other ‘stress related’ diseases.

As the lock down continues, stress levels are on an exponential upwards curve – with a high percentage of South Africans living their lives in an ongoing “state of imbalance.”

Too much or too little of anything – for too long – will lead to a state of imbalance.

Covid19 is a prime example of a state of imbalance.

Ongoing physical, chemical or emotional imbalance puts one at high risk of triggering – or fast tracking – one of the life threatening diseases.

If the imbalance finds its bedrock in the emotional realm, it can become life threatening.

Witness the recent surge in excess deaths.

Anthony Robbins believes that emotion is the ultimate human force.

When one’s life has been turned completely upside down by a pandemic and lockdown, stress levels can sky rocket.

It’s now known that excessive emotional stress – turns toxic in the human body – and at some point can trigger one of the serious life threatening diseases.

Here are the BIG FOUR emotional stress culprits. They are emotional toxins which we must guard against.


HATE IS THE PRE-CURSOR FOR HEART ATTACK.

HATE is a highly toxic that constricts the flow of life – your own life blood.

Be aware, as the resultant state of emotional imbalance can trigger heart attack.

RESENTMENT IS THE PRE-CURSOR FOR CANCER.

RESENTMENT is a highly toxic emotion that festers in the human body.

Long term held resentment to someone, something or some cause – can send your human cell formation into total disarray.

Be aware, as the resultant state of emotional imbalance can trigger cancer.

CRITICISM IS THE PRE-CURSOR FOR THE AUTO- IMMUNINE DISEASES

CRITICISM – and especially criticism of oneself – is a highly toxic emotion which clogs the human body.

Be aware, as the resultant state of emotional imbalance can trigger one of the many auto- immune diseases

FUTILTY IS THE PRE-CURSOR FOR ADDICTION AND DEPRESSION.

FULTILITY, coupled with self pity, is a highly toxic emotion that diminishes the meaning of life.

Be aware, as the resultant state of emotional imbalance can trigger addiction and depression.


Many people believe that we will shortly be past the Covid peak.

That’s good news.

In the meantime it’s wise to stand guard of the door by striving for balance in all three realms your life:

#PHYSICAL (what you put into your body);

#CHEMICAL (what you put into your mouth); and most importantly

# EMOTIONAL (what you put into your head).

Things will soon get better as the summer arrives.

This time too shall pass.

Go well.
