The American Center for Stress Research announced that their statistical analysis estimates that 75-90% of ALL visits to medical health care providers are a DIRECT result of stress. This means that our society’s maladaptive understanding and response to stress and anxiety is costing trillions of dollars, millions of lives and countless pain in every family, community and town around the world.  Stress is not simply an adjective to be thrown around for emphasis.  The impact of stress is a measurable, neurological response of our surroundings that can be explained and defeated if we only give individuals the tools needed.
