The first edition of The Cortisol Connection signaled a revolution in our understanding of the effects of stress hormones, like cortisol, and explained the relationship between chronic stress, high levels of cortisol and the breakdown of the body’s health reserves. In his carefully designed SENSE Program (Chapter 9), Dr. Shawn Talbott presented simple guidelines for reducing stress, lowering cortisol levels, improving long-term health and reaching and maintaining desired weight.
Dr. Talbott has long maintained that lowering cortisol is as important to health and longevity as lowering cholesterol. This book explains why. With the information in this book, you can start NOW to reduce stress, lower cortisol levels, avoid weight gain and take more control of your health.
This book describes the author’s effective (yet easy-to-follow) SENSE cortisol-reduction plan: Stress Management – Exercise – Nutrition – Supplementation – Evaluation
