Stress causes acidity in the body — no matter how good we eat. And acidity is NOT the environment for a vibrant, healthy body! A DCIS diagnosis can knock us over the edge with shock, fear, confusion, overwhelm, grief, anger, etc. Instead of taking the anti-anxiety meds your Dr. quickly prescribes, here are 10 “alternative,” NONTOXIC ways to transform stress…
1. Support: Surround yourself with like-minded people or join an on-line support group. Check out Donna’s Choice: Global Healing from The Inside Out

True healing begins when we detoxify our minds of fear, worry, guilt, stress, blame, shame, grief, anger, etc. Power vs. Force by David R. Hawkins is a fascinating book on how attitudes, thoughts and behaviors are constructive or destructive and how anyone may resolve the most crucial of all human dilemmas through the science of kinesiology and “muscle testing.” (Muscle testing is a simple procedure for testing strong/weak responses, such as that of an outstretched arm, in response to questioning).
Bruce Lipton, author, speaker and cellular biologist, discusses why our perceptions and our internal environment play a more critical role than genes in healing.
