Michael’s personal message: “You may think with the title of this talk, it’s about being calm and cool in the face of pressure. It’s actually more literal than that. My body actually stopped sweating. And I had to learn how to get it started again naturally as, after exploring things medically, it was clear no pill or prescription could help me.
This was one of a variety of unusual and harsh health issues I faced that were either wholly or partially induced by stress. They were messages my body was sending me that I needed to change my lifestyle. This talk is about my journey, one I think many can relate to. This is not about what I’ve overcome. It’s about what I’ve learned in the hope it can help others.
With people becoming more aware about stress and its incredible health impacts, many of us have found that we can pay a hefty price if we ignore or don’t acknowledge it. And for me, as I believe for others as well, it went completely undiagnosed by the medical community. I will not only share my stories, I’ll share stories of others including some miraculous experiences that touched my heart and I believe will touch yours too.”
