Surveys of stress-related illness suggest that more than 250,000 people in the UK are experiencing stress at a level that is making them ill.
Stress can indeed lead to extensive psychological and physical suffering but one thing is clear: we do have choices. "Stress will always be with us, and we will continue to suffer - unless we choose to change," says Dr Cantopher. "The good news is that this is possible - stress-related illness is avoidable, and if you change, you will attain happiness." Topics covered include: causes of stress; manifestations of stress - physical illness; psychological conditions, such as anxiety, panic disorder, OCD, phobic states and depression; acute treatments; longer term management; how to avoid stress and its ill effects; and, lifestyle issues.
We have a choice! This book offers not just facts, but a message of hope.
