We all get stressed. Stress is part of life and can even be good for us, stimulating us to adapt. Unresolved, it causes discomfort, pain and disease. If you are already ill, it makes it worse. Disease can cause stress too. Western Medicine by its nature recognizes stress as serious only when it reaches the endgame level of disease. It passes to sociologists and psychologists the task of explaining the early stages and why people get stressed. Chinese medicine has a different model. It systematically explains stress from its earliest appearance right through to severe disease, whether mental, emotional or physical. Its model has been in use and development for perhaps 3000 years. This ancient model is unique, but highly relevant today, explaining Stress in terms of energy Qi; what causes stress; stress and illness; stress in the workplace; stress management; using stress creatively; good stress, positive stress; what treatments for stress work; ways to reduce stress; exercise and stress; emotional stress; exhaustion and stress; why medication for stress sometimes makes it worse; how to control stress. Understanding stress is one thing. Doing something about it is another. This book explains stress using the Chinese model and suggests ways - ancient and modern - to manage it. It explains the forms stress takes and, depending on the symptoms, what therapies or do-it-yourself strategies work or may be best.
