Toxic thoughts are thoughts that trigger negative and anxious emotions, which produce biochemicals that cause the body stress. They are stored in your mind, as well as in the cells in your body.

Every single thought- whether it is positive or negative -goes through the same cycle when it forms. Thoughts are basically electrical impulses, chemicals and neurons. They look like tree branches. As the thoughts grow and become permanent, more branches grow and the connections become stronger.

About a year ago, I was introduced to the book 'Who Switched Off MY Brain' By Caroline Leaf. It is a book that had a huge impact on my life! Years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Like many conditions people have, toxic thinking can and WILL effect your health. I use to get angry when I went to the doctor and they would ask me if I had any stress going on in my life. After having FMS for a while I began to see a pattern. Fibro flares usually take place after a stressful time or over activity. I want to share with you some things that have made such a difference in controlling FMS. When time allows I will share what I am learning through controlling my thoughts. Until next time...
