Is your life in overdrive?
You aren't alone -- and you're smart to seek change. Studies show that prolonged or severe stress can weaken the immune system and the heart, damage memory, and even encourage the body to deposit fat at the waist -- a risk factor for heart disease, cancer, and other illness.
Finally, here is a doctor's answer to the modern problem of chronic stress. Based on Dr. Cherewatenko's work with more than 2,000 women in a special stress-reduction program, his breakthrough plan dramatically revives the body's healing chemistry and explains steps women can take to stop living in overdrive. After a detailed self-assessment, readers can follow his 7-step De-STRESS program:
Practical and upbeat, this book helps women combat the disease of stressful living and regain control of their emotions and life.

Vern S. Cherewatenko, M.D., is a family physician in private practice and founder of HealthMax Incorporated, a company specializing in functional medicine with emphasis on diabetes, obesity, stress, nutritional biochemistry, and longevity medicine. He is cofounder of the American Association of Patients and Providers (AAPP), a nonprofit organization advocating commonsense changes in healthcare. Dr. Cherewatenko conducts community seminars nationally on female stress, diabetes, obesity, and other issues and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, USA Today, and on the cover of U.S. News & World Report. He and his family live in Renton, Washington.From Publishers Weekly:
Supplemental nutrition, meditation, friendships, exercise, sensible eating and proper sleep are all parts of doctor Cherewatenko's "stress cure." But what sets his program apart from the typical anti-stress guidelines is its use of the "coping hormone" dehydroepiandrosterone, a.k.a. DHEA. Said to check cortisol, a "fight or flight" hormone the body produces under stress, DHEA is not regulated by the FDA. But, according to Cherewatenko, once DHEA is administered patients report remarkable improvement in their emotional well being. "Within 3 days of taking the DHEA I felt everything inside of me lift," reports one patient, Rebecca. "It was like I had come back from the edge. I feel more in control." DHEA levels can be checked by a doctor, Cherewatenko says, and DHEA supplements can be prescribed for women with below normal levels. Cherewatenko recommends that it be purchased from a "reputable" source-namely his company, HealthMax, Inc. (Conveniently, HealthMax also offers a DHEA-level saliva testing kit.) Whether DHEA is, in fact, a safe and viable remedy for fatigue, migraines, weight gain, muscle aches, sweating abnormalities, PMS, depression, infertility or any of the 27 other symptoms Cherewatenko claims it cures is yet to be declared by the FDA. In the meantime, the authors' clearly-presented guidelines for applying the more usual solutions to stress (avoiding perfectionism, eating right, exercising regularly, etc.) should satisfy readers who are wary of medicating themselves with new drugs.
