Overview

For many of us, life may look good from the outside: a decent job, a good family, nothing to complain about, really. But many of us are exhausted, struggling with our weight, and just aren't having fun anymore. We don't have the zest for work or hobbies or friends that we used to; we're low on energy; we're too tired to exercise, or we're really overdoing it; we're getting colds and flu and even a few things the doctors shrug their shoulders about. We've accepted this as a fact of life. We're getting older and there's just nothing we can do about it, right?

Wrong, according to anti-aging pioneer Jesse Hanley, M.D. The drive that made us want to be successful in the first place, the eating, sleeping, and living habits we picked up along the way are the source of the problem: burned-out systems and tired adrenal glands that were not meant to function under constant duress. The stress response elicited by even minor incidents at work, while commuting, and in taking care of kids shuts down metabolism, digestion, elimination, absorption of nutrients, and reproduction; reduces the ability to think clearly; and makes the body store fat instead of burning it.

The result: weight gain (or in some cases extreme weight loss), irritability, insomnia, allergies, infertility, environmental sensitivities, recurring colds and flu, premature aging, heart disease, type II diabetes, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and the list goes on. Dr. Hanley's program can show anyone how to repair a lifetime of damage and experience the best health ever.

An easy-to-take test shows you which stage of adrenal burnout you have reached -- Driven, Dragging, Losing It, Hitting the Wall, or Burned Out -- and tailors a program just for you. Herbal and supplement recommendations help you get on track, and an easy fourteen-day meal plan helps your body regain the years it's lost in hard work and striving. Dr. Hanley shows you how you can reclaim your energy, your health, your fun, and your life.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Too tired to exercise, or, for that matter, do much of anything other than work or sleep? Most people think that's just an inevitable and depressing consequence of growing older, but Hanley, medical director of the Malibu Health Center, says it's not so. Hanley offers a program aimed at relieving "Adrenal Burnout," an all-too-common hazard of today's fast-paced, stressful life, whose symptoms include weight gain, exhaustion and irritability. As a way of categorizing people into specific types "driven," "burned out," "perfectionist" the author offers case histories along with a questionnaire, which readers can use to diagnose themselves. Once they identify their symptoms, they can adopt Hanley's 10-step program, which includes eating frequently, exercising less (though he does encourage yoga), getting more sleep and taking vitamin supplements. Hanley also offers healthy recipes (some of which sound a little distasteful, like Dreamsicle Tofu Power Drink), accompanied by tips on "good fats" (butter, cheese) and "bad fats" (corn oil, non-dairy creamer), stress-relieving breathing techniques, effective herbal supplements and more. Hanley's program isn't revolutionary, and much of it isn't even original, like "detox" days, fasts to jump-start a diet or getting more sleep. Some of his advice avoiding excessive exercise, for instance is just plain common sense. Still, the book's suggestions are sound, and readers amenable to self-examination will find this book helpful. (On sale date: Apr. 23) Forecast: An appealing title, along with a 30-city tour, should yield brisk initial sales for the book. After that, the book's success will depend on endorsements and media attention. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
