SuperStress, a new and serious disorder that has developed as a consequence of our frenetic lifestyles, is a pandemic that is quickly becoming more fatal than obesity.
In this empowering, preventive health oriented book about stress. Dr. Lee discusses strategies for building stress resistance and resilience into your life with a unique prescription for recognizing, rebalancing, and protecting against stresses small and large. Starting with a comprehensive, informative quiz to determine your stress level and stress personality type (also available online at www.superstresssolution.com), The SuperStress Solution then guides you through a 4-week healing program to reset your rattled nervous system to a default state of rest rather than high alert. The SuperStress Solution is a book that teaches us how to not only survive but even thrive amidst this chaos.
