Coping with a Stressed Nervous System
Out of Stock
This book offers relief for your nervous system and help for both body and mind. Our central nervous systems are only designed to take so much stimulus. Too much, and they become overloaded, resulting in malfunction and illness of various kinds. This is a precisely targeted book which focuses on the autonomic nervous system - the part of the nervous system we all take for granted as it guides us through the routine actions of breathing, heart rate and so on. Dr Kenneth Hambly and psychologist Alice Muir look at 'autonomic overload' - that is, when the sensitive nervous system becomes overworked and stressed, resulting in common symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, breathing problems, and stomach upsets. Autonomic overload, according to Dr Hambly, accounts for the large numbers of people who visit their doctors but leave again without a diagnosis. "What the young family doctor discovers is that major illnesses are rare, but sickness isn't." How to heal body and mind at this deep level is the subject of this book.
