Abstract :

Stress is a killer in our society; with it estimated that 60-90% of our doctors visits are from stress related illness. But, stress isnt really the problem; its our reaction to it. And that is in our control. Learn cutting edge techniques like mini-meditations, mindfulness practices, affirmations and visualizations to take charge of your stress for better health and wellness. Take away the current research on placebo effect and how our words and thoughts can lower blood pressure, decrease pain, enhance immune function and improve sports and athletic performance. Investigate what happens to our physiology in the fight or flight response and how a mini-meditation can reverse that to invoke what Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard calls the Relaxation Response. A treasure trove of information and techniques that you can learn yourself or seek a qualified practitioner to assist you with, Conquer your Stress gives the power back to the individual to make healthy and simple mind/body choices to enhance health and take back control. Explore techniques such as sound healing, prayer, BEST, yoga, homeopathics, herbs, reiki, EFT, autogenic training, visualization and dozens more, explained simply and thoroughly. This is the perfect introduction to a multitude of varied and useful techniques. Self-care is often overlooked with many people turning blindly to drugs and surgery. Certainly needed modalities, they can be enriched with stress-reduction, relaxation and programming the brain with mind/body therapies.
