San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
With healthcare expenditure over $2.3 trillion, it's time to de-clutter. The problem is not our closets, but all the emotional clutter that piles up on a daily basis. That stress is what has Americans popping pills and gaining belly fat. Now you can clear away that emotional clutter in the comfort of your own home -- with the Wired for Joy Online Course released June 8, 2011.
The release of the course coincides with a new report by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco http://www.hypothesisjournal.com/index.php/main/article/view/198. The article grew out of their efforts to explain the effectiveness of this novel stress management program, emotional brain training (http://www.ebt.org).
According to Laurel Mellin, associate professor of family and community medicine and pediatrics at UCSF, and the founder of EBT, "People want a back to basics approach. Who isn't stressed these days? The strategy is learn how to use the natural pathways in the brain in a highly effective way."
Most Americans are overloaded with stress, and the brain gets into the stress habit. That set point of stress unleashes a cascade of stress hormones, which is a primary cause of 80 percent of health problems. The current paradigm treats the symptoms of stress by relying on medications, procedures, and devices rather clearing away the build-up of stress in the brain.
The new video course is perfect for anyone who is short of time, and who isn't? Research on EBT is ongoing at UCSF, and more research is planned. Clinicians are trained in EBT and facilitate groups in the community. Telephone groups are available, too. The most recent book on EBT is Wired for Joy (Hay House, 2010): http://www.amazon.com/Wired-Joy-Revolutionary-Creating-Happiness/dp/1401925863/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1307213605&sr=8-1, which was recently released in the UK and Australia.
The new video course is available on June 8th, 2011 by visiting http://www.ebt.org.
