If you drive a car, pay bills or have a boss, odds are you will fail. Nobody is stress free --- but too much stress can harm your body, breaking down its immune system, causing weight gain and even contributing to heart disease and cancer.

You can't cut yourself off from society to avoid stress. Instead, use a natural effective, proven method to relieve stress and lower cortisol levels and, in the process, lose weight.

Dr Shawn Talbott, an avid endurance athlete with a Ph.D. in nutritional biochemistry and former professor at the University of Utah Dietary Supplement Education Program, has written a book called The Cortisol Connection, Why Stress Makes You Fat and Ruins Your Health --- And What You Can Do About It. In his book, he supports the use of adaptogens to help control cortisol.
