Stress Elimination Handbook
A holistic Self-Help Program to help restore health, achieve balance and promote wellbeing.
by Grandmaster A. Lowe
The epidemic of our times, stress has its roots in the very essence of life and has caused more suffering and diminishment of human spirit than any other form of affliction. Stress is the root cause of imbalance and dis-ease. Its causes can be identified as Acute and Chronic.
Acute stressful factors include: financial problems, fear, family disharmony, noise, sleep disturbances, crowd activity, pedestrian and motorized traffic, isolation, physical hunger and severe temperature changes.
Chronic stressful factors include: vibratory, parasitic, prolonged and/or serious illness, political or religious dogma, marriage/divorce, poverty, death, employment issues and/or work environment and media fear mongering.
The text includes detailed text and charts to illustrate the medical and scientific aspects of the effects of stress on our immune system and overall health. The importance of proper breathing and of enhancing Qi with nutrition, water and architectural design are also discussed.
LAMAS Qi Gong is an ancient art that can help to conquer and reduce stress on all levels, while preventing damage to mind, body and spirit. Qi Gong techniques will also boost the immune system and help one achieve a more balanced lifestyle, improved health and an increased sense of wellbeing.

Fight or Flight: The Adrenaline Cascade
There are five emotional patterns that provoke the onset of stress.
We rarely are ever consciously able to make use of, or are even aware of, these five responses. They are in fact all emotionally driven and have different effects on us at every level during our entire lifespan.
They are woven into the fabric of our very existence. Each of the five emotional patterns is associated with an invasive and destructive nature; all are stress orientated.
As you read about the emotional patterns and the organ connections that become damaged, think of your emotions. What is your dominant emotional state? Later in this book you will learn how to prevent damage caused by emotive patterns.
Traditional Chinese Medicine views the body, the organs and their interrelationships, systems and symptoms differently from Western medicine, as you’ll note in the paired organs below.
1. Anger damages the Liver-Heart connection, producing a breath said to be uneven and rough.
2. Envy causes a breath that injures the Heart-Spleen connection and has an emotional discord.
3. Worry attacks the Spleen-Lungs connection, causes depression, while inducing shallow non-beneficial breathing.
4. Fear, the most damaging emotional state, destroys the Lungs-Kidney connection, negates nourishment of all the other Yin/Yang Organs (more on that later). Fear is the great inhibitor and disruptor of smooth Qi flow.
5. Conflict, the usurper of the Kidney-Liver connection, is instrumental in causing humans to become the worst type of primitive savages, while pretending that the conflict is for the common good. Conflict results in a short, sharp pattern of breathing.
Each of the emotive patterns results in a deviant breathing pattern, which in turn, initiates a release of adrenaline.
A slow drip of adrenaline inevitably will set off symptoms of anxiety to be visibly displayed and noticeable to others. However the sufferer would have undergone some form of discomfort even before obvious signals were noticed. The degree of this state of un-ease will depend on the type and severity of the problem that initially triggered the signs of anxiety.
When we are faced with stressful moments, our fight or flight reflexes, which are our main survival mechanisms, will cause and create a release of the hormones adrenalin and cortisol. These increase the pulse rate of the heart, in turn giving the body and brain an energetic boost. The muscles tense. Cholesterol is released into the blood stream.
That chain reaction is a protective measure to make our blood clot more easily in case of injuries or wounds. Normally the flight or flight response would give us the extra energy we need to save our lives and those of others in a given specific situations such as escaping a burning building or combating an enemy.
On the contrary, in today’s stressful environment, we normally don’t expend the energy boost while fleeing the burning building or fighting the enemy. Although we are stressed, there is no fire threatening us, no unfriendly, hostile individual, or what is commonly termed bad people attacking us.
The chain reaction of survival mechanisms can trigger health complaints, including but not limited to:
