Here is a summary of my own understandings of the secrets described in thebook: Secret #1: There is One Source of Illness and DiseaseOur bodies immune system and other systems in the body are finely tuned tokeep us healthy and to disease free. When the system is working properly themany cellular disruptions that could turn into things like cancer are healed beforeproblems occur. When things are out of balance, disease occurs.What causes us to get out of balance?
Loyd and Johnson offer anice analogy to help us understand what’s happening on a cellular level:In the Navy, when a ship is attacked, all maintenance, repair, and normalactivities cease. Even crew that are sleeping or eating have to “man the battlestations.” When the alarm goes off, our cells cease their normal growth, healingand maintenance. Why? The fire alarm is only supposed to go off in anemergency, and all of those activities can wait a few minutes while we run or fightto save our lives.The cells literally close up, like a ship battening down the hatches in a time of attack. Nothing is going in or out. You don’t see a tender ship coming up besidea battleship to give it food or to unload the garbage during a battle. In the sameway our cells don’t receive nutrition, oxygen, minerals, etc. nor do they get rid of waste products and toxins while under stress.Under normal conditions the stress comes and goes quickly and shuttingthings down for a short period of time does not cause damage. But increasinglywe are under chronic stress and our bodies, minds, and spirits can not repair themselves. Physical, mental, and spiritual illnesses result. Secret #2: Stress is Caused by an Energy Problem in the Body We often think of stress as being caused by external circumstances, somephysical event that throws us off. Someone cuts in front of us on the freeway.We have bills to pay and not enough money to pay them. We witness a horrificEarth quake and Tsunami in Japan and wonder if it could happen here.But science tells us that regardless of the external circumstances, if there is aproblem it registers in the energy field of the body. These ideas from quantumphysics were first discovered by people like Albert Einstein who said, “All matter is energy.” George Crile, Sr., M.D., Founder of the world famous ClevelandClinic said, “Diseases are to be diagnosed and prevented via energy fieldassessment.”
