A Life Disrupted
In 2001, seemingly out of nowhere...
Michael Wood, a successful inventor, began suffering from uncharacteristic and quite alarming symptoms.
His resting heart rate was racing above 100 beats per minute.
His weight had dropped to 130 pounds on his 5 10 frame.
His blood pressure was steadily rising, and he was unable to sleep most nights.
When his condition did not improve on its own, Michael was forced to face some uncomfortable truths about his prospects for full recovery.
He learned that the same characteristics that make you successfulintelligence, creativity and attention to detailcan also create extreme physical and emotional tension.
Here's what else he found...
The Daily Battle
Against Chronic Stress
Until quite recently, stress has been commonly defined as...
"A massive discharge of the stimulating nerves, accompanied by the release of cortisol and other hormones" (the familiar Fight or Flight response.)
And the antidote to this kind of stress was simply...
"A massive sustained discharge of the pacifying nerves" (or Rest and Digest)
Fortunately, most of us don't commonly face repeated episodes of "fight or flight". But our bodies sometimes behave as if we had.
This was the the dilemma Michael Wood faced.
The same deep concern reported by 85 individuals who shared their daily struggles with us during StressEraser's pilot program...and for upwards of 139 million people who will seek help for severe stress this year.
It's the hidden source of so much unnecessary suffering.
The causes of chronic stress are complex. In the overwhelming majority of cases...the very things that give rise to mental, emotional and even bodily distress can't be dealt with by physical confrontation or running away.
Update: Aug. 21, 2005
StressEraser was the "dominant story" of the 113th meeting of the American Psychological Association, held in Washington, DC.
Also showcased at the 39th annual convention of the association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies...
StressEraser is scheduled for clinical trials in January to determine its effectiveness in treating Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Boston University clinical psychologist Stefan G. Hofmann, an anxiety disorder specialist, is hopeful the trials will provide therapists with an effective resource for treatment of GAD.
So what do you do
when you can't fight back?
Where do you turn
if you can't run away?
Left unattended, chronic stress wears down your emotional well-being. Much the same way a steady drip of water wears down even the hardest stone.
But it doesn't stop there...
At first the damage goes unnoticed.
Over time you lose your ability to recover.
One-by-one your body's self-maintenance systems begin to shut down.
You feel as if you're losing control of your own emotions...trapped by your job, your family, your situation...consumed by worry and anxious about the future...depressed and overwhelmed.
Try as you might to "snap out of it," you can't seem to escape the constant negative thoughts swirling through your head.
Everyone of us has a network of friends, family and coworkers who depend on us.
When disruptive thought patterns intrude into our relationships and compromise our lives, the pain can be unbearable.
Michael knew continued exposure to stress would block the ability of any relaxation technique to restore his body and mind to a resilient condition.
Rather than tolerate an unbearable situation, Michaels unique background allowed him a way out.
He began a painstaking study of stress reduction techniques...
Discovering The "Keys to Composure"
Early in his research, Michael settled on a scientifically grounded method--the focus phrase technique--as holding great promise.
But previous research suggested this technique required a good deal of coaching and a significant investment of time to master.
He wanted to find a way to rapidly relax and feel good at any moment, especially moments when he was experiencing a lot of stress, and to provide a method that could be easily duplicated by anyone...at the first sign of emotional or physical turmoil.
Simply put, Michael wanted to be able to calm his mind and relax his body in minutes... anytime, anywhere.
I LOVE this device I carry mine everywhere.
He'd learned that under the right conditions the bodys pacifying nerves are able to completely shut down the stimulating nerves...
Gain Access To Your Body's
In general, your body's pacifying nerves function in an opposing manner to the stimulating nerves...(in medical terminology the pacifying nerves are referred to as "parasympathetic", the stimulating nerves are "sympathetic").
The Relaxation Effects
Of The Pacifying Nerves
Michael's investigations uncovered multiple credible sources that claimed certain breathing methods could..."directly increase the activity of the pacifying nerves."
He then asked a series of questions...
"Which breathing method, if any, increases pacifying nerve activity?"
"Could such a breathing method actually suppress the stimulating nerves...even when these nerves have been activated by the stress response?"
"Would such a breathing method enable a focus phrase to trigger the relaxation response at anytime...even when a person is feeling stressed?"
"Would the focus phrase trigger the relaxation response more rapidly with such a breathing method...due to the calming nature of the pacifying nerve activity?"
Through rigorous experimentationusing standard medical equipmenthe developed a dynamic breathing practice that produced the precise results he was looking for.
By combining the dynamic breathing method with the focus phrase technique... Michael successfully resolved his own stress-related issues.
Based on solid scientific reasoning, as well as his own personal success, he recognized his discovery would provide welcome relief for chronic stress.
The Cycle Of Stress
Perhaps you've visited your doctor and he asked you to stick your finger
in a little device...called a pulse oximeter, to measure your pulse rate and the amount of oxygen in your blood.
The StressEraser uses a similar technology to identify every pulse the
moment it occurs...
StressEraser displays the up-and-down movement of the pulse rate as a wave.
What causes your pulse rate to move up and down?
Understanding this is the key to becoming free from the three major sources of stress...mental, physical and emotional.
The Vagus Nerve
The up-and-down movement of your pulse rate is caused by the activity of the vagus nerve...the primary pacifying nerve of the body.
Each time the vagus nerve activates, the heart rate decreases...
Vagus nerve activity comes and goes in waves.
When it comes, the heart rate drops.
When it goes, the heart rate returns to its baseline.
Whats so important about the vagus nerve? When it comes to getting rid of stress everything!
The vagus nerve instantly responds to both physical stress and emotional
If you accurately measure the response of the vagus nerve, you can use that measurement to guide you to become free of physical and emotional stress.
Although we cannot directly monitor mental stress using the vagus nerve, its
activity contains an important key for getting rid of mental stress.
Monitoring the Vagus Nerve
In the 1970s, medical researchers developed a method to use the
heart rate measurements to monitor the activity of the vagus nerve.
Clinical studies have shown that when the vagus nerve comes on twice as strong, its going to lower the heart rate twice as fast.
StressEraser uses this simple fact to accurately measure the amount of vagus nerve activity at any moment.
How does this help you with mental stress?
By monitoring the time that the vagus nerve activity is strongest, we know when the sympathetic nerves no longer have power to increase mental activity.
This is an ideal time to shift your mind off of troubling thoughts and onto your focus phrase, because at that moment, you dont have sympathetic nerves agitating your mind.
Its simple, and proven to be highly effective.

Reclaim Your Peace Of Mind
I took mine to the dentist yesterday and while the hygienist was working on me, I used it and actually it was my calmest dental visit yet. I have been in several wars, flown over 10,000 hours in combat jets, visited New York City, and one Worlds Fair, but I have always been more stressed in dental visits than anything else.
Return to a Life of "Everyday Grace"
It's easy sometimes to put off those small, but important things...like visiting friends, mending broken relationships or taking time for those who are closest to us.
All too often, what we neglect most is ourselves.
If you've ever flown, then you know in an emergency, your first duty is to give yourself oxygen. If you don't, what chance do you stand to help anyone else?
May we suggest you take a
moment for personal inventory?
Are you truly available when and where you're needed? Or do you sometimes let outside stresses and nagging self-doubts dictate your agenda?
If you've read this far, you likely recognize that stress is playing a much larger role in your life than it should. You may even have sought out help before.
But for some reason, whether because of unpleasant side effects from prescription drugs, or a lack of positive results, your problems with stress have not been laid to rest.
It doesn't matter how many times you've tried and failed.
Don't give up.
Your first concern must be to give yourself oxygen. Think about what you stand to lose.
Even more important, consider all you have to gain. Surely, a part of you knows that you deserve to be free from this needless burden.
Yet, another part of you still has doubts...will this turn out like everything else? After all, nothing's worked before. Except, when all is said and done, will you seek help elsewhere, or will you continue to just "get by?"
Yet, there's one more part of you that understands the risk of doing nothing is far too dangerous, especially when you consider what's at stake.
There's no need for you to go it alone. Michael Wood knew that in 2001. He chose to act.
Now you have a choice.
