A dramatic title for a topic that is so often glossed over. Stress is responsible for many of today's diseases and illnesses. Stress and anxiety compromises your immune system and your body's ability to absorb the nutrients from your food.

But what happens if you have many episodes of protracted stress in your life and your body is unable to cope with the constant rush of adrenalin into the blood stream? Stress relief is far more difficult to achieve when you are suffering from chronic stress. It is also time maybe to reassess your life, and discover what is really causing you to be stressed.

Having suffered from chronic stress myself, I am only too aware of the detrimental effect this can have on our health and well-being. In this book I will share my own experience, what it taught me about myself, and how, through a deeper inner knowledge, I was ultimately able to begin to stress proof my life.

Very often it isn’t simply the circumstances of our busy lives that makes us stressed, but something more intrinsic in the way we think.

This is a short book with 13,334 words.

What others have said

The author Janet Matthews describes her book as "a short book with 13,334 words." A HUGE book of 13,334 words would be a more apt description. Every word, concept and verbal illustration carries tremendous weight and meaning that I, for one, can recognize, identify with, and use to my benefit.

Julia Busch –

What is really good about this book is the connection the author makes with the reader through her own experience which will help many people understand that they are not alone in their situations. Even if you feel you are coping with stress this book will help not just deal with it but combat it.
Is Stress Your Silent Killer? - worth the investment.

If you think you or a friend or relative might be coming down with a stress related illness this is a very useful little book. Full of tips for controlling stress and some very good explanations on how to deal with stress and recognize the symptoms of it before it can take over your life or the life of a loved one.

A lot of people these days have stress related illnesses, many times we/they do not realise that we are actually suffering from a stress related illness. Do not suffer in silence read this and find out if you have it and what to do about it if you have it!

"Is Stress YOUR Silent Killer?" That's quite a title isn't it! But it is becoming increasingly evident that the main contributing factor of ill health is stress. It is when your life is out of control and you develop 'chronic stress' that the real danger looms.

The author shares her own experience of sinking into chronic stress and shares with the reader how to recognize the symptoms of dangerous stress levels. She goes on to explain what strategies you can practice to reduce your stress while improving your health and well-being.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stress the Silent Killer 25 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We are starting to recognise how terrible stress is to the human body. It causes many illnesses, and can destroy lives, but often goes unnoticed until the damage is done.

This book is an inspirational and practical guide to dealing with stress. It shows you how to recognise the early signs of stress and gives you many ways to cope with that stress. I especially liked the idea of singing. How great do you feel when you are driving late at night and the stereo is blaring?

The book covers techniques ranging from nutrition, through relaxation and gives practical tips on how to deal with stress.

A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars An authentic and practical read 16 Oct 2012
By Lindsey
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a really helpful and very realistic view of the way stress can permeate our lives and take a hold without us really knowing until it's too late. Janet's real life account interwoven with good common sense and sound practical advice on such a variety of different areas leaves the reader wanting more! I hope more will follow to give further detail on some of the practices recommended. A series of books perhaps?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Journey From Stress To Health 11 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well written account of how the author experienced stress, including the many symptoms, and how she found methods to help her cope with, and relieve, stress. This book found that change starts from within, and that you have to address your perception of your beliefs.

It reaches the place where you can just be, without comparisons or judgements. The author covers many modalities which help, including her experience in nutrition, so that you will learn a holistic approach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, Stress is Your Silent Killer! 26 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Janet gives an overview of symptoms of stress, as well as various ways to deal with stress.

You can learn from Janet's personal journey of managing stress in her life.

As an Energy Healer for over 35 years I have many tools for assisting clients, as well as myself for stress relief. I, however, have experienced 2 major times in my life because of highly demanding work with teenagers in therapeutic boarding schools, emotional and physical burnout. The last time included the additional unreasonable work load demands of the largest Behavioral Health organization in the US.

I can emphasize with Janet's life with her work demands and raising 3 teenagers.

The book is great and because of my experience, I would add more energy healing techniques such as Bowen Therapy, Jin Shin Jyutsu (acupressure points, and Donna Edens Energy Medicine for handling stress relief for adrenal exhaustion and also sedating the triple warmer meridian.

A majority of people suffer from the flight or fight syndrome in our society. Buy this book today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Natural Stress Relief 20 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This informative and interesting book will be a useful tool for helping anyone to combat stress.

It is written in a very personal style with snippets of the authors own struggles and her own successful methods of dealing with this very debilitating problem.

The author includes lots of excellent resources and research that she has found along the way to her own personal recovery.

Stress can manifest itself in a number of ways and this book will help you to understand how stress may be affecting you.

An excellent book to have in your collection. I will certainly be looking for any follow-up books that become availble by this author.
