Recovering From Stress, Burnout And Fatigue
The effects of stress on our health can lead to devastating long term illnesses such as adrenal fatigue and chronic fatigue syndrome.
So many people feel absolutely burnt out and just do not understand how this affects their body or what they can do about it. Mainstream medicine has almost nothing to offer the person who wakes up feeling exhausted, who simply cannot cope with the smallest problem or feels so weak they can barely digest their food. Having helped people for 15 years to recover from stress, Jo wrote this book so she could pass on her knowledge and experience to as many people as possible.
In Part One, Jo outlines how stress affects your body systems, and clearly explains why stress can make people so unwell, sometimes for years. In these chapters Jo shows the reader how long term stress can lead to adrenal fatigue, reduced immunity, disrupted hormones, poor digestion and low thyroid function, amongst many other symptoms.
Part Two offers clear guidelines towards 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 to offer practical tips on how to adjust your life so that you stay well. She wraps up the book by exploring our modern lifestyle; why many of us choose to live to stressfully and how we might make more sustainable life choices.
