Tucson, AZ, United States, 2009/07/15 - James L. Wilson D.C., N.D., Ph.D. presents adrenal fatigue, metabolic syndrome and stress reversal at the Smart Life Forum, “A Return to Healing: Radical Health Care Reform and the Future of Medicine,” July 16, 2009 in Palo Alto, CA.
James L. Wilson D.C., N.D., Ph.D., author of “Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Syndrome” will present Adrenal Fatigue, Metabolic Syndrome & Stress Adaptation at the Smart Life Forum, “A Return to Healing: Radical Health Care Reform and the Future of Medicine,” July 16, 2009 in Palo Alto, CA.
“Both adrenal fatigue and metabolic syndrome are in epidemic proportions in the US and in most industrialized nations. These conditions can arise as stress maladaptations and are intimately related, yet are often slow to be recognized, if at all, by conventional medicine,” said Dr. Wilson.
The combined, near perfect storm of several recent events in the world have led to stress levels not often experienced in individual lives. American’s financial concerns are compounded by frenetic schedules that lead to poor quality food eaten on the run, and too little exercise or relaxation time. Prolonged stress and unhealthy lifestyle choices affect the body’s energy producing mechanisms adversely, setting up physiological conditions that can lead to adrenal fatigue or metabolic syndrome. Unchecked, metabolic syndrome predisposes a person to diabetes and heart disease. Adrenal fatigue leaves people feeling chronically below par, unable to achieve their potential and limping through life.
An expert on endocrine imbalances and their impact on health, including the effects of stress on adrenal function, Dr. Wilson will review and expand upon the toll stress takes on the body. This presentation is to help the general public understand the connection between adrenal fatigue, metabolic syndrome and stress, and focus on what they can do to protect themselves from these health conditions.
“There is a tremendous amount we can do to naturally balance the effects of stress on our bodies and compensate for stressful life events and stressful lifestyles. In the years I’ve spent treating patients, and researching, writing and speaking about adrenal fatigue and stress, I’ve seen that if the physiological and biochemical mechanisms that deal with stress are properly supported, people can withstand quite a bit of stress – yet maintain their health, their ability to function, and their optimism,” Dr. Wilson said.”
A scientist as well as a physician, Dr. Wilson holds three doctorate degrees and two master's degrees, all from different health disciplines. He is listed in The International Who's Who in Medicine (Cambridge, England), and was one of the founding fathers of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario.
