When asked about the importance of identifying and treating stress, Dr. Peper replied, “For more than 70% of patients who visit their primary physician with a physical complaint there are no physiological causes. In most cases, discomfort is aggravated or initiated by stress and living in a life pattern that is the does not allow regeneration. Most anti-anxiety, anti-depression and sleeping medications increase pathology and morbidity. Thus, self-regulation strategies offer much more long term benefits.”
