    The Preventatists
    I have wrestled with the old demon stress and its precursor ID [incoming distress], for around 60 years, whilst helping people who were in the grip of some stress-related unwellness. As a result, I reckon I can justifiably claim to be an expert on the subject of stress.
    Back then, in the late fifties, when I started, nobody seemed to accept that stress was the devastator it is, and it’s good to see that orthodox medicine is catching up with the theories I advanced so long ago.
    When I claimed that stress causes cancer, depression, cardiac problems, diabetes and a host of other nasties, it was ignored. However, over the years working as a therapist in Sydney, Australia, I managed to help many people; people who were suffering from a stress-related disorder, by teaching them a simple, easy system to defend against ID.
    Today, because of the emerging realisation about the deadly effects of stress on human minds and bodies, there are a lot of people joining the bandwagon with “10-ways to manage stress”. Whilst the ideas promoted are individually sensible, they seem to miss the central point about stress defence, which is that stress must not be “managed”, it must be avoided like the plague it is becoming, and we must be able to continually defend against ID, in a way which is simple and easy to do. Any defence mechanism should not interfere with daily life – work, rest or play – but continue to defend the mind and body of the user.
    A good stress defence needs to be more secure, simple, and easy to use on a day-to-day basis, so I designed just such a system. It’s very effective, and it works well for those who choose to use it. If an individual wants to avoid those serious disorders they need to wrap themselves in a good defence against ID, [which cannot be avoided], to prevent it becoming stress, [which can].
    The only things needed to learn this idea, is to be human, have an open mind, and to have a life into which distress arrives.

    This article is an eye opener for me. My spouse is VERY negative and I do soak up his negativity like a sponge. I am an extremely sensitve person. Some days I want to scream at him to stop complaining as it is killing my spirit and joy. I find that when I attemp to steer him in another direction there is always a “but.” I would rather live alone.
