In today’s high-stress world, many would answer yes to at least one of these questions. Irritability, insomnia, weight gain or loss, recurring colds and flu, environmental sensitivities, and low energy are problems that are becoming more commonplace every year, and can develop into more serious health concerns such as heart disease and type II diabetes.

 

But we don’t have to live like this. Anti-aging pioneer Jesse Lynn Hanley, M.D. believes that the  lifestyles we’ve grown accustomed to are responsible for our burned-out systems and tired adrenal glands that were not meant to function under constant duress. Her Ten Simple Solution program can show anyone how to repair a lifetime of damage and experience the best health ever:

Tired of Being Tired

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.

    Fu<3>ck you too, "I THINK." Alice does NOT Rp them, I am POSITIVE. Thinking that just proves your supidity. Fu<3>ck off. Orba is really nice, but what she is doing is not. She Rps guys, and about fifty girls fall for them a week. It isn't fair for any of them. I am sick of her being Illusion. Poor Crystal doesn't have a clue. I mean, I have no love for Crystal, but like I said, it isn't fair for her.

    Valuable resource

    I purchased this book after reading an article about it in O Magazine.

    Although I am extremely cautious when it comes to taking herbs and supplements. I have found valuable information in the process of trying to get back on my feet" It is very practical well written and easy to understand. I have suffered from depression for many years and have found that I am feeling much better and hopeful by following the dietary and other suggestions

    Very Informative

    I found this book to be straight-forward, easy to read and immensely helpful in understanding adrenal fatigue, its symptoms and causes, and the treatments available. It is very user friendly and easy to understand.

    informative

    I was amazed at the wealth of knowledge in this book. Not only did I see myself but also America in general. The entire diet industry is merely a bandaid for a more serious problem as revealed and explained in great detail in this book. Not only is the problem explained but there are also easy solutions and guidelines, menus, recipes to follow.
