Tired of Being Tired: Rescue Repair Rejuvenate

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 ...

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.

Introduction

At forty-three, Jessica Inman was overweight, tired, stressed out, and having stomach pains. She was uninspired by her career. "Food had become a constant companion," Jessica said. "I was in a pattern of gaining and losing ten or fifteen pounds." Between the stress of family and career there never seemed to be enough time to think about making changes. Does Jessica's story sound familiar?

Maybe, like Jessica, your life is complete on the outside but empty on the inside. Has success brought you rewards, but have you no energy to enjoy them? Are you exhausted, struggling with health issues, and futilely battling your weight? Do you find you just do not have the vitality and optimism you once had? Do you suffer from insomnia and obsessive thoughts? Does it take one, two, three, or more cups of coffee just to get through the morning? You may think, I am getting older and this is what happens. It may be a surprise to learn that these symptoms are not a function of age. You do not have to slide into a helpless pattern of fatigue, weight gain-and illness. You can have your energy back, lose weight, sleep soundly, achieve optimal health, and look and feel younger.

When Jessica was offered a few simple solutions, she felt hopeful again. Within one month of making a few changes to her diet and taking the right supplements she began to feel better. Within two months she had lost weight and had much more energy. "I wasn't really prepared for how good I would feel," Jessica said. "I started to get excited about my new business and getting my life back together. I have so many things going on that feeling healthy and balanced gives me an incredible foundation. I think that the more that you can be at your peak performance, the more you can give back to the lives of other people. And the more active you can be, the better you feel about yourself. Now that I've made some changes and have gotten such great results I'm really focused on changing other habits and I feel motivated."

Like Jessica, I am grateful for the health problems that I had early in life because they led me to make even more changes-which led me to where I am today. When I was growing up my mother gave me sugared and processed cereal for breakfast, hot dogs on white flour buns with pickles, and a Coke for lunch, and TV dinners-exactly what television in the 1950s suggested a good mother should feed her child. My parents were smokers, so I grew up in a smoke-filled home. I was chronically sick with tonsillitis and stomach problems, and I caught every infection that was going around. Antibiotics were such a regular part of my life then that I took them the way I take vitamins today. I was always so tired that I would often come home from school and fall asleep on my bed. I had no idea that sugar, secondhand smoke, processed foods, and even the antibiotics were causing my fatigue and health problems. In fact, in my teenage years I thought it was cool that I lived from candy bar to candy bar, not realizing that I was really starving my body.

One morning at age seventeen, while washing my face at the bathroom sink, I caught my exhausted reflection in the mirror and instantly realized that I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I knew I had to do something about it. On the way home from school that day I passed by a neighborhood health food store, something I had done every day for years. That day I went inside and met a man who gave me my first lessons in natural health. What he said made such an impression on me that I began to read everything I could get my hands on about health and healing. I learned how to prepare whole foods and about the nutrients I needed. Four years later I realized that it had been four years since I had been sick.

Just as that wise man had helped me, it became my passion to help others be healthy. I cooked for them, helped them quit smoking, and did for them whatever was within my budding repertoire of healing. My passion led me to the Abraham Lincoln School of Medicine at the University of Illinois. I wanted to teach what I experienced-that health, energy, and vitality are a choice. I studied biochemistry, physiology, and endocrinology; simultaneously, I studied Oriental medicine at the UCLA Medical School, where I learned about Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. I also studied polarity therapy, which, like Chinese medicine, understands the body as an interconnected system of flowing energy. I found I could use alternative natural methods-such as nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle changes-to help people heal. Over the last twenty-five years I have successfully assisted thousands of people in their recovery from illnesses by using natural methods.

When I became the medical director of the Malibu Health Center in 1988, my practice filled up with extremely driven and stressed-out people. Every day people come into my office asking why they are overweight, anxious, and depressed; why they suffer from obsessive thoughts; why they are exhausted but cannot sleep; why they helplessly crave junk food and sugar; why it takes a pot of coffee to keep them going. Over the past twenty-five years I have witnessed miracles in the lives of these very same people. It all began with a few simple changes.

On a daily basis I hear people say they believe it is difficult to make changes. That is why my emphasis is on making small changes that make huge differences. More important, small changes make it easier for you to see that further changes are possible. The Ten Simple Solutions you will learn about in later chapters are designed to renew your energy, eliminate insomnia, reverse accelerated aging, help you look and feel younger, lose weight, restore immunity, and prevent illness.

This book was written because I know that people feel their lives are out of control and that there is nothing they can do to feel better. The truth is that you can have your energy back, lose weight, sleep soundly, and more. You can take your life back. I have seen it happen for many, and I would like to show you how to do it yourself. It is as easy as Ten Simple Solutions.

    Avoiding Adrenal Burnout and Recovering From It

    Adrenal burnout is one of those afflictions that few people have ever heard of, and few doctors test for it. As a result, most of those who have the problem are walking around feeling tired and do not know the reason. The only way to determine if you have adrenal burnout is to be tested for it. If you do have this condition, this book will be very helpful to you. I discovered that I had adrenal burnout by accident, during testing for another condition. Other than telling me that I had it, my health advisor was not able to offer much other advice except to increase the essential fatty acids in my diet. I wish this book had been available then. I'm sure that I would have recovered much more rapidly! Adrenal burnout is caused by many factors, most of which are related to stress. You can also increase the likelihood of having this condition by the amount of caffeine you consume. Basically, it is easy to become addicted to an exciting lifestyle where every event gets you charged up. Unfortunately, you then need more excitement to keep you charged up. Like a drug addict, you want more and more, and your body gets more and more tired as you do more and more. Don't assume that you have adrenal burnout, just because you are tired all of the time. Clinical depression, certain types of yeast infections, low thyroid levels, kidney problems, heart disease, and even allergies can bring on similar symptoms -- as well as more serious illnesses. If you are tired all the time though, be sure that you get checked out thoroughly until you find the cause. I suggest going to a clinic for a complete work-up. Most general practitioners and internists will probably not succeed in diagnosing you. Once you have been diagnosed as having this condition, you should take the test in this book to see how severe your need for recovery is. Then, you can follow the suggestions for that level of issue. I was surprised to find myself in the Dragging category, despite my best efforts to avoid putting stress on my adrenal system. I followed the advice here, and immediately felt better. The solutions fall into these categories: 1. Eat more frequently, and with a focus on unprocessed whole foods in a balanced diet. Avoid sugars and flour! 2. Exercise regularly and moderately. 3. Do things to calm your nervous system like yoga and meditation. 4. Sleep more. 5. Stop taking stimulants. 6. Take food supplements that offer more vitamins and minerals. 7. Do deep breathing exercises. 8. Use detoxifying diets from time to time. 9. Be sure to have fun every day. 10. Cultivate a sense of self-fullfillment that includes treating yourself as well as you treat others. I had two objections to the book. First, the advice often goes counter to studies that I have read about health. You are encouraged to take in lots of cholesterol from food, for example, by eating eggs. Now, my understanding is that your body can produce all the cholesterol you need by simply eating a balanced diet. So this didn't make sense to me. The advice about magnets also went counter to studies I had read. Second, the diet advice is not specialized by blood type. The advice in Live Right 4 Your Type is probably more appropriate in this area, for that reason. I have questions about many of the recipes in the back, as a result. I know of no other book that deals with adrenal burnout, so this is the gold standard for now. I look forward to reading more about Dr. Hanley's work as she writes more on this subject in the future. By the way, the book provides the information you need to order adrenal tests on your own if you would like to be tested. After you finish this book, I suggest that you think about the fact that you cannot help others if your own health is not based on a sturdy foundation. Be sure to keep a balance in who you give to and how much, so that you can give the most in the long run! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The Irresistible
