The Need for Stress Relief Can Be Overlooked

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - December 20, 2010) - While plenty of people might immediately recognize symptoms of many medical diseases, the impact and results of extreme stress may be overlooked by those who are unaware of the consequences if left untreated.

"Often, the signs and symptoms of more widely known problems are quickly identified," says Jeff Eastman, of Clayton Stress Institute ( "But for many people in this time of fast-paced lifestyles and busy schedules, extreme stress is not given the consideration or attention warranted to avoid the difficulties it can bring."

According to a survey from the American Psychological Association, about a third of all the adults in the United States report having extreme stress. Nearly one out of five say they reach their top stress level about 15 or more days during each month, the survey says, and about half reported an increase in of stress over the past five years.

Many survey participants indicated stress was a natural part of their lives. The survey showed they suffered personally, emotionally, physically, and professionally because of stress.

"Stress does take a major toll on your mind and heart, and a great toll on how you function in life," says Nick Dewan, M.D., chief health officer of Clayton Stress Institute.

The first and only Internet-based provider of self-directed help for stress relief and anxiety relief, Clayton Stress Institute features online EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), the acclaimed program that has made headlines and been praised for high rates of success with extreme stress, PTSD, and the trauma of domestic violence and sexual abuse. EMDR brings negative emotions associated with painful experiences and memories into awareness, and helps the brain to successfully process the experience. The memory remains, but related negative feeling and thoughts are neutralized.
