Stress is killing us unilaterally. All races, creeds, colors, socioeconomic groups, political parties–it does not discriminate. According to a recent study by the American Institute of Stress, 48 percent of stress sufferers say stress has a negative impact on their personal and professional lives. With an abundance of information on stress readily available on the Web and through other media outlets, people need a mediator to help them separate fact from fiction. Jeanne Ricks is that mediator.

The Biology of Beating Stress is a powerful book that gets major points about stress across in a casual way. With quick and easily digestible reference points, each page is something readers will want to return to again and again.

In addition to breathing and relaxation techniques, The Biology of Beating Stress shows readers how to make the mental shift toward not merely managing their stress, but actually using stress to their advantage!

The way we interpret our stress and its effects directly affects our health and wellness. This book:

  • Explains epigenetics to show how much more control you have over your health than you thought.
  • Describes the amazing benefits of brain wave entrainment for drug-free stress relief.
  • Discusses foods that help support the body when stressed.
  • Shows how consistent cortisol reduction techniques create a clear path to a happier, healthier, more productive, and stress-free life.
