Feeling stressed out? Wondering what your doctor would say?
Surprisingly, doctors get very little training on stress, both in how it affects the body and how to deal with it. Got an injury? Great. The doctor has you covered. Got an infection? The doctor has you covered.
But stressed out? Not so much.
That was the experience of my guest, Elizabeth Hughes, MD. A practicing physician, Elizabeth was reading in the back of a medical journal about adrenal fatigue. She noticed that most of her patients suffered from the same symptoms.
And she realized that the culprit was stress. Or more accurately, the inability for her patients to successfully deal with stress. No surpise, Elizabeth realized, given how even her medical school training had failed to offer solutions.
That led Elizabeth to seek ways to help. She picked up a number of certifications in the process. But more importantly, she discovered an important antidote to stress that is simple and powerful. Since stress is implicated in many chronic illnesses and adversely affects life satisfaction, it is important for each of us to find that antidote to stress.
