About the Author: Dr. Lena Edwards

Buoyed by numerous awards and more than a decade of training in the fields of internal medicine, hormone restoration therapy and anti-aging medicine, Dr. Lena Edwards firmly believes in optimizing health and preventing illness by promoting patient awareness. Dr. Edwards' goal in writing Adrenalogic is to empower individuals to better understand the connection between chronic stress and disease and to be proactive in their health care.

Honoured as "Intern of the Year" during her residency training at the University of Kentucky School of Medicine (UKMC) in 1997, Dr. Edwards also served as Chief Resident at UKMC's Department of Internal Medicine. In addition to being trained as an internist, she is both Board Certified and Fellowship Trained in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and Fellowship Trained in Integrative Cancer Therapy. Less than 2,000 physicians worldwide have this degree of training in the area of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. In addition to her medical accolades, she was voted "Small Business Woman of the Year" in 2009 by the local chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners.

Using adrenal health as a springboard, Adrenalogic: Outsmarting Stress reveals the link between stress levels and our fundamental health, highlighting the important role the adrenal glands play as part of a larger, more complex system. Written with humour and ample patient case studies, Dr. Edwards applies her abundant experience in this field to enlighten and inform.

Dr. Edwards currently resides with her family in Lexington, Kentucky where she operates her medical practice, Balance Health & Wellness Center. She also serves as a community faculty member for the University of Kentucky Medical Center and is a faculty member for several other prominent medical associations.
