The Ultimate Healer

Scientists estimate that stress is at the root of 80–90% of all diseases. I would argue that stress is involved with 100% of diseases because stress is anything that moves the body out of its balanced state of homeostasis. When we are ill, we are out of balance by definition!
I would also submit that all stress is a response to fear or danger, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. It only makes sense that the opposite of stress and fear is the antidote to all imbalance, illness, and disease. The obvious question is, “What is the opposite of fear and stress?”
The opposite of fear is love, especially the infinite, unconditional love of God, the Creator of all that is. I believe this love is the light and life-giving energy that created and sustains all things. It is the love that brought every one of us into being, and it is the love that makes us whole.
