The book provides a careful review of the physical problems
which originate from excessive stress and the flight/fight phenomena. For instance, the heart pumps faster and blood pressure rises. Blood flow to the prefrontal cortex decreases.
Digestion slows down due to stress. We sweat more. Arteries of
the heart become inflammed from stress. Lastly, the immune
system is compromised from added stress.
Stress is classified by types. Type 1 stresses are immediate.
Type 2 stresses are non-specific in nature.
The authors ask that we breathe from the belly to relax.
Para-sympathetic/ nervous system control emmanates from abdominal
breathing or slow/deep relaxed breathing. By slowing down,

down to preserve health now and for the long-term future.
As such, it is a solid value for the price charged.
