Lexington, KY (PressExposure) August 26, 2011 -- Stress...The term has become a predictable part of our daily vocabulary. It's credited for causing everything from divorce to diet disasters. We have come to expect stress as a normal part of our lives, yet we still do not truly understand its complexity nor have we been equipped to deal with its consequences. In fact, the World Health Organization declares that by the year 2020, stress-related bodily disorders will be among the major causes of disability worldwide.
Dr. Lena Edwards is proud to announce the release of her latest E-book titled "Adrenalogic, Outsmarting Stress". Trained as an internist, Anti-Aging/Integrative Medicine specialist, and Integrative Cancer Therapy specialist, Dr. Edwards puts nearly 15 years of knowledge and expertise to paper in this phenomenal book about the global epidemic we have come to know as stress.
Written as a reference guide for the lay person, Adrenalogic: Outsmarting Stress provides readers with an in depth view of the many faces of stress...from whence it emerges, its widespread and disastrous effects on the body, how the physical effects of stress can be properly diagnosed, and ways to 'outsmart' stress. By dispelling past and emerging myths surrounding the effects of chronic stress and the hotly debated term 'adrenal fatigue', Dr. Edwards explains the link between hormones, stress levels and the development of disease - a health connection that has been recognized for decades but remains poorly understood.
Unlike other books written on this topic, Adrenalogic has been authored by a physician who truly sees medicine from all sides. Her multidimensional levels of medical expertise coupled with her scientific background lend themselves incredibly well to this fact filled book. Dr. Edwards uses hard medical evidence to bridge the "disconnect" between traditional and integrative medicine approaches in addressing stress and stress related diseases. Readers will feel validated as they learn the truth about how stress causes disease and how they can work with their health care professional to get the answers and proper treatment they need.
This book is a must read for anyone subjected to chronic daily stress, which is probably everyone. The days of 'adrenal fatigue' have passed, and this book contains the truth and medical accuracy readers have been searching for.
"This is a really complex subject even for physicians. Lena has great insight into adrenal health and overall wellness. I certainly understand the concepts better now that I did in medical school. I've recommended it to other physicians and patients."
