Firenation with John Lee Dumas and Dr John DeWitt
If you described your work-life in one word, what would that be?
Unfortunately, "stressful" is the word chosen by the global average of 35% of employees - with entrepreneurs often way higher.
Listen to the live on Entrepreneurs On Fire Podcast on Tuesday March 31st - the 1M-listeners Podcast with John Lee Dumas and Dr John DeWitt.
Understand why it’s so vital to invest in your own mental wellbeing alongside your business.
Often, the old-school recommendations for how to deal with stress can seem impossible.
Take time out …
Eat healthier … or less … or not at all and fast … or cut sugar … or carbs … or animal products ...
Drink less … drink more water … drink special water ...
What if the reasons for stress - are not because all these extra “to-dos” are missing from your already overflowing plate?
What if the reasons are something completely different?
With all the demands of entrepreneurship - unrealistic deadlines, unmanageable workloads, income insecurity, long hours, changing trends, unpredictable ROI … all these negatively impact long-term health and productivity.
We know that a stressed workforce takes more sick days and has lower productivity– costly both in terms of profit and health insurance premiums. So, here’s why tackling stress makes good business sense, plus some of the best evidence-based solutions.
How stress affects our health
When we’re stressed, the hormone cortisol is released, triggering a cascade of changes in the nervous, cardiovascular, and immune systems. This triggers the body to divert energy to where it’s needed most, the ‘battle stations’, while it down-regulates less critical activities such as digestion. It’s a good short-term strategy, but problems occur when stress becomes long-term.
Chronic stress raises blood pressure, increasing the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Chronic stress can encourage unhealthy behaviour such as smoking, drinking, and poor diet, compounding the risk of serious conditions.
A joint review by University College London (UCL) and Harvard University found that work strain, working long hours, and insecurity were all associated with a raised risk of coronary heart disease.
Growing evidence shows that long-term stress also makes people prone to weight gain. Researchers from UCL published a study where they took a lock of hair, representing approximately two months’ worth of growth, from participants aged 54 or older. Those with higher levels of cortisol in their hair tended to have a higher weight in relation to height and a larger waist circumference.
Stress leads to minor ills, too: researchers administered nasal drops containing the common cold virus to 276 volunteers to see if stress made people more susceptible to illness. The results, published in the Journal of Health Psychology, showed that work-related stress, lasting longer than one month, tripled the risk of catching a cold, and increased it five-fold after three months.
Chronic stress triggers gut problems, asthma symptoms, and headaches, and causes problem emotionally too. In 2011, the American Psychological Association released results from its stress survey. When asked what symptoms the 1,200 participants had experienced in the past month as a result of stress, 42% reported feeling irritable or angry, 39% anxious or nervous, 37% depressed or sad, while 35% lacked motivation.
Globally, the more stressed someone is, the less work they do. Low levels of stress led to an average 2.6 days absent per year, with high stress this rose to 4.1 days.
Imagine you’re in a boat surrounded by water. It’s not going to sink you - unless the water gets in the boat.
It’s a bit like that with external stressors … they can’t “sink” you unless you let them inside.
But that’s easier said than done.
The Toxicity of Chronic Stress
Temporary stress is normal and can be healthy.
Chronic stress, on the other hand, is where the physiological effects become more dangerous: headaches, heart problems, high blood pressure, suppressed immune response, and more.
Prolonged exposure to chronic stress can lead to memory loss, anxiety, irritability, depression, substance abuse, social withdrawal, weight gain, insomnia, suicidal thoughts, or worse.
This can take a devastating toll on relationships with spouses, children, colleagues, and family.
So what’s really going on inside the body?
When chronically stressed, your endocrine system, responsible for regulating your “fight or flight” response, isn’t returning to a healthy state. Instead, it overrides everything the brain believes is non-critical, like sleep, digestion, and the reproductive system, while enhancing the systems useful during times of high alert — so your muscular and cardiovascular systems all work far harder than they should.
For most adults, 7-9 hours sleep per night is the recommended amount, although each person’s needs could be a little more or a little less.
Sleep is often one of the first things to be sacrificed, but reducing sleep to 4-6 hours a night is shown to have a significant impact on cognitive functioning.
Sleeping for only 6 hours or less per night produces cognitive performance deficits equivalent to up to 2 nights of total sleep deprivation!
Even slight sleep restriction can seriously impair your neurobehavioral functions when you’re awake.
But it can feel like a vicious circle … you can’t sleep because you’re stressed … and you’re stressed because you can’t sleep.
Or, you can’t sleep because you have too much to do … and you have too much to do because you’re not productive …
Maybe it’s not your fault?
After all, we’re not biologically or physiologically designed to cope with the 5000+ stress triggers which bombard the typical person each and every day.
What if there was a way to stay calm and zen-like even if you haven’t yet mastered mediation?
What if you could modulate your own stress hormones naturally, making you impervious to those external stressors?
There is a way to do just that, as increasing numbers of entrepreneurs, business owners, and HSPs are finding out.
The answer has been known for 90 years - with no negative side effects reported in all that time - but only to a select group of health professionals and individuals.
The rare natural ingredient YTE® enables self-modulation of the stress hormone cortisol.
Young Tissue Extract Dynamic Protein - "YTE®" - is a rare, all-natural ingredient unlike anything else.
YTE® is the only complete single source of all 23 amino acids in perfect natural balance along with Fibroblast Growth Factor, vitamins and minerals.
It takes 9 days to produce, and is harvested at exactly the right stage of molecular and cellular dynamism. The proprietary method of harvesting this ingredient preserves the actual life force present, and that's what makes the difference.
Made from free-range Norwegian hens' eggs, produced in such a way to uniquely contain the active ingredient which has twin mechanisms of enabling your brain and body to rebalance cortisol and rebuild stem cells.
First developed by legendary Canadian Dr John Ralston Davidson, backed by double-blind, peer-reviewed clinical trials and research papers, Government bodies, and University studies, now represented by world-famous Doctors including Dr John DeWitt, Dr Veerle Van Tricht, Dr Christopher Hertzog, Dr Cheryl Kam, and many others.

The YTE® ingredient is combined within four proprietary P.L.A.N. formulas: Pure Live Active Nutrition, each designed for different needs and purposes.
What that means is that taking just four small capsules each day of one of the recommended clinical dose YTE® formulas results in dramatic differences in cortisol; so much so, that productivity is improved, due to increased focus, concentration, memory, and, yes, including better quality and quantity of sleep.
It’s all about living a life “uncomplicated”.
Why do we say this?
The unique rare natural ingredient we use is the only single complete source to both rebalance and rebuild the brain and body
Life Uncomplicated means "your life" which also means "how you are living now" … and it’s about making life easier so everything flows more naturally with grace and joy
As a company, we have a very simple philosophy: we are the sole source of the transformative YTE® ingredient and we only use this and other genuine ingredients at recommended clinical dose - and always at good value pricing.
Life Uncomplicated" explains the beauty of our ingredient because it is one single ingredient - even though it has all the complexities of life.
Life Uncomplicated explains our company because we provide genuine pure natural ingredients at the correct clinical dose - obviously what is needed, with no unnatural complications or artificial chemicals.
Life Uncomplicated describes how our formulas work, because by enabling you to manage and balance your cortisol, and at the same time rebuild and regenerate your stem cells, you experience the transformation of simply good health.
So more of the "real you" can shine through, without the complications of illness, stress, or premature ageing.
There is no other ingredient in the world similar to Young Tissue Extract Dynamic Protein YTE®.
Our P.L.A.N. formulas are unlike anything else.
P.L.A.N. stands for the Pure Live Active Nutrition within YTE® - where the “essence of life” is captured and preserved during a proprietary process, including Fibroblast Growth Factor which regenerates stem cells and contributes to being Happier, Younger, Rested.
