A few years ago, I had an Ulcerative Colitis client who finally cemented the idea that our lifestyle, and more specifically stress, can be the one thing keeping us from getting healthy.
Here’s how the breakthrough went…
“Jordan, I don’t know what else to do… nothing is working. This is the worst Flare up of my life and all our usual tricks can’t touch it. What am I going to do?”
“Look Diane, we’ve spent the last 30-minutes going over everything I can image… there’s got to be something else going on in your life that triggered your flare. You’re doing everything right. What aren’t you telling me here? What else is going on?”
“Well Jordan, there is one thing I haven’t mentioned…”
“Ok… please, tell me.”
“It’s my 25-year old son. He’s home with me right now. He’s sleeping on the couch detoxing off of Heroin. Could that have something to do with my flare?”
Stress is the stealthy Flare Trigger we all know about, yet most choose to ignore it.
Or we tell ourselves, “I’m doing the best I can, everyone deals with this stuff.”
But most often, it’s the straw that breaks the camels back… the diarrhea flare trigger that goes unseen.
It could be a divorce.
A death in the family.
Your senior year of college.
That stressful job.
Or it could be taking care of the family member detoxing on your couch.
Life happens. Stress happens.
It’s there, lurking in the shadows… chronically knocking us down.
But what can we really do about stress?
It often feels like something we can’t control it. Like it’s everywhere. Like it’s a constant thing in today’s society.
And the truth is, we all have a choice about stress every single day.
And that choice can be the difference between triggering a flare-up or keeping it at bay.
And that’s what I’m covering in today’s fourth and final ‘Lifestyle Flare Triggers’ video…
I share one simple ‘flare tool’ you can use to make a different choice about stress in your life and control one of the most powerful flare triggers in your life.
