Natural Highs: Supplements, Nutrition, and Mind-body Techniques to Help You Feel Good All the Time
We all need a boost now and then. Sometimes just a cup of coffee or tea will do the trick. Maybe a chocolate bar or a soda to get over the afternoon slump. Or perhaps a cocktail or a cigarette to help relax at the end of the day.
While many people automatically reach for chemical crutches (both legal and illegal) to alter or enhance mood, all these substances have unfortunate side effects and do nothing to rectify the underlying problems. Several can become addictive and set up a cycle of craving and withdrawal that may increase fatigue, stress, and depression.
In Natural Highs, two leading authorities in psychology and nutrition present a prescriptive breakthrough program based on nutritional supplements, herbs, and simple mind/body therapies that will help to increase energy, sharpen the mind, improve mood, relax the body, and beat stress. Their remarkable research shows how to formulate the perfect "brainfood" to improve how we think and feel, resulting in a greater sense of connection and joy in everyday life-the natural high.
