Recovering from Stress, Burnout & Fatigue
The effects of stress on our health can lead to devastating long term illnesses such as adrenal fatigue and chronic fatigue syndrome. Many people feel completely burnt out but do not understand how this affects their body or what they can do about it. Unfortunately, mainstream medicine has almost nothing to offer the person who wakes up feeling exhausted and unable to cope with the smallest stress. Having helped people for 15 years to recover from these illnesses, Jo Dunbar-Lane passes on her knowledge and experience in this accessible book. In Part One, the author outlines how stress affects your body systems, and shows the reader how adrenal fatigue, reduced immunity, disrupted hormones, poor digestion and low thyroid function amongst many other symptoms, can be caused by long term stress. Part Two offers clear guidelines for recovery, including advice about diet and blood sugar control, dealing with candida, restoring the immune system, rebalancing hormones, restoring the adrenal glands and energy using lifestyle changes, herbal medicine and nutritional supplements. In Part Three, Jo uses her experience with thousands of patients to offer practical tips on how to adjust your life so that you stay well.
