Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 29, 2009
Parker College of Chiropractic, along with sponsors EBM Corp. and the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce, welcomed world-famous relationship expert and best-selling author Dr. John Gray to Parker College of Chiropractic to share his knowledge in the field of communication with the local Dallas/Fort Worth community.
Gray presented material from his book Why Mars & Venus Collide Improving Relationships by Understanding How Men & Women Cope Differently with Stress.
"Why do Mars and Venus collide?" asked Gray. "One of the biggest reasons is that people are more stressed today than ever."
There are physical explanations for the reasons why men and women react differently to stress, which is the reason why they have problems relating. Under stress, specific brain activity leaves them physically unable to understand another point of view.
When describing themselves under moderate stress, women experience eight times the blood flow to the emotional side of the brain, whereas there is no emotional activity going on in a man's brain. "Women are not overreacting. They are having a normal reaction," said Gray. "And it's not that men don't care. Men only register to big stress."
The ways men and women deal with their stress is just as different as how their brains interpret it, furthering the gap between Mars and Venus.
"A lot of collision goes on because we misinterpret each other," said Gray. "One of the ways women cope with stress is talking about problems. And the more stress they have, the more they talk about problems that have no solution."
Men, however, are fixers. They like to solve problems. So men think if there's nothing they can do and there is no way to solve a problem, then why talk about it?
"We want our partners to be like us," said Gray. "It's okay for us to accept our differences and learn how to correctly hear and interpret each other so we're not stepping on each others' toes."
Stress is not just a mental health issue; it also takes a toll on the physical body and is the one factor that has been linked to every sickness. So it's no wonder why in today's stressed-out world, people are unhealthier than ever.
"Chiropractors are the most open minded, committed people to encourage others to find their own wellness," said Gray. "We need to continue to educate people that they have a choice."
"John Gray has recognized there is no way to have a true, authentic, and deep relationship unless you have good health," said Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, president of Parker College of Chiropractic. "He is a big supporter of our profession and always mentions the importance of chiropractic care."
By recognizing these biological differences and making an effort to be more understanding, men and women have the potential to reduce their own stress and help relieve the stress of their counterparts.
