You aren't alone -- and you're smart to seek change. Studies show that prolonged or severe stress can weaken the immune system and the heart, damage memory, and even encourage the body to deposit fat at the waist -- a risk factor for heart disease, cancer, and other illness.
Finally, here is a doctor's answer to the modern problem of chronic stress. Based on Dr. Cherewatenko's work with more than 2,000 women in a special stress-reduction program, his breakthrough plan dramatically revives the body's healing chemistry and explains steps women can take to stop living in overdrive. After a detailed self-assessment, readers can follow his 7-step De-STRESS program: DHEA -- safely replenish levels of this stress- fighting hormone
Supplemental Nutrition-- replace vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes lost to stress
Taming the Tiger -- pursue meditation, yoga, and other stress-busting, mindful-living methods
Rekindling Relationships -- take a new approach to work and family relationships
Exercise -- exercise in ways to increase energy and mental focus
Sensible Eating -- keep your emotions from ruling your palate
Sound Sleep -- "quality sleep" helps keep hormones stable
Practical and upbeat, this book helps women combat the disease of stressful living and regain control of their emotions and life.
