Advanced Stress Management Technology for Longevity and Cancer Recovery

By Dr. Janet Hranicky Ph.D.

Dr. Hranicky utilizes the Process Communication Model®, developed by Dr. Taibi Kahler to both maximize the potential for an individual's recovery from illness, as well as to minimize distress which exacerbates the aging process. Dr. Hranicky believes that it is important for individuals to understand their unique distress patterns that correlate with their personality so that they can more effectively and efficiently manage their stress response. There is considerable research that points to stress as being an influencing factor in the susceptibility and resistance to cancer, as well as the course of the disease. The Kahler Key to Stress Profile® has been validated over the last 20 years and was used by Dr. Teri Mcguire, the former consulting psychiatrist at NASA, in the selection of astronauts. This system is the only technology available in the world that is able to predict a person's specific distress patterns and their psychological needs based on their personality structure.

With the on-line Personality Pattern Inventory, you will learn four steps to managing stress effectively so that you can maximize your recovery potential:

  1. Knowing who you are and what motivates you.
  2. Recognizing your personal warning signs of stress: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree distress symptoms.
  3. Understanding the roadmap of your stress process and how to reverse the pathways.
  4. Designing your lifestyle success formula to match who you are with what motivates you.

To shift out of distress, it becomes necessary to identify our particular psychological needs, and to find ways to meet them in healthy ways on a consistent basis. The Key to Stress Profile® is designed to help you identify those psychological needs that are most unique to your personality structure and to formulate a plan to get them met positively, immediately, and consistently, as well as manage your distress more effectively by increasing your awareness of your strengths as well as your failures.

Managing your stress with more success then becomes a contributing factor to maximizing your recovery potential and optimizing longevity.


Questions about the cellular responses to stress are emerging from work, for example, being carried out at the Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, Scotland; Research that has caught the most popular attention concerns p53, a gene that functions as a tumor suppressor. The gene is able to sense when the DNA of a cell has been damaged, and either stops the unnatural cell from re-producing until the DNA is repaired, or induces cellular suicide (apoptosis). Groundbreaking research from Bruce Lipton has shown that attitudes and behaviors of an individual can influence gene expression. It was thought that only DNA coded information governed gene expression, but we can now see that communication is a two way street to gene expression.

In summary, managing our distress more effectively will ultimately be show to correlate with the specific gene mechanisms involved in tumor suppression.
