Healing Hormones tackles a huge, attention-getting subject. TV and radio shows, websites telling people to take it easy, slow down, de-stress to feel better, live longer, be a better parent and more loving mate. But how? The prescriptions are disappointing: Yoga? Time-consuming and difficult for many. Prescription drugs? Costly, subject to abuse and may not be helpful. Naturopathic remedies? Unproven, untested and often ineffective. Healing Hormones has a better answer: show readers how to harness their own bodies' heal producing chemicals to improve their lives. Healing Hormones takes the take-care-of-yourself trend a step beyond where it has been before. Author Mark J. Estren, Ph.D., investigates five body-produced hormones that counter the stress response to make life better, calmer and more relaxed. The five healing hormones are dopamine, nitric oxide, endorphins, oxytocin, and serotonin. Healing Hormones will be readers' top choice to learn the pluses and minuses of the remarkable hormones that drive their health and happiness or undercut it. Estren-who has more than 20 years of experience writing about medical issues and research for patients and their families-explains how to harness the power of these healing hormones in clear, easily understandable language.
