'This book could be the answer to a stress-free life... emphatically not just another manual on mindful meditation, it's an insightful, science-based guide on how to mitigate the debilitating effects of stress.' - Evening Standard
A few years ago, someone asked me a question, “How do I stop feeling stressed without quitting my job and without using any pills?”
I did not know the answer.
So, I spent the next two years digging out every scientific paper I could find on stress from all the medical literature archived in the United States National Library of Medicine.
I was amazed by what I found.
Stress does not start in the body, it starts in the brain. There is a direct pathway between stress and insulin resistance. The stress of public speaking creates physical cracks in your intestines. We become inflamed every time we become stressed. Bright light at night shifts your stress hormone profile the next day. A single trip to the sauna may reduce symptoms of depression for at least six weeks... and much, much, more.
I distilled all the scientific papers I had found into over 500 relevant studies and condensed the findings of those studies into STRESS PROOF The scientific solution to protect your brain and body -- and be more resilient every day.
I hope reading my book will be as useful for you,
as writing it was, for me.
