An American study of patients with cardiac problems appears to show a significant improvement when stress-management training forms part of their treatment.

A group undergoing exercise-based cardiac rehab was split into two, with one half also receiving anti-stress interventions such as techniques for relaxation and coping under pressure. Those patients were found to have a 50 percent lower risk of complications like heart attacks and strokes. Another similar group who did not take the exercise programme, but received the stress reduction training, showed a 40 percent lower risk than those who took neither.

This was only a small-scale study, with no opportunity to evaluate the anti-stress interventions individually, or to investigate reasons why some patients had rejected exercise-based rehab. And stress management is not a curative therapy. But the findings do suggest that this approach could help improve cardiac rehab programs.

“Given that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., this could represent a new treatment that will help us reduce the impact of this disease,” said Dr. Eric Aldrich, a researcher in neurology and rehabilitation at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore. (As reported in the American Heart Association journal Circulation.)

  •  ·         Cardiac patients were taught how to relax and cope with pressure
  • ·         The anti-stress training was found to cut heart problems by 40%-50%
  •  These findings may be used to improve cardiac rehab programs

John Gray praises Ken Wallace Self Help Books

John Gray, PhD., well-known author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, has endorsed Ken Wallace’s publications for their value in the self-improvement field.

“Ken Wallace’s Your Better Self: A Simple Guide to Where You Want to Be and Your Better Self Study Manual: A Simple Guide for Living on Purpose in Peace and Prosperity grab you right from the very first pages with new and exciting ideas and techniques. Ken’s powerful stories and methods show you how to enjoy a happier, healthier, more peaceful, productive and prosperous life,” Gray said.

Ed Hammond, international management consultant based in Arizona, also recommended the book: “This book is FANTASTIC! Usually I read this type of book through then go back to some key points and dwell on them for the best self-assistance. However, this book caught me right from the first page. Every part showed me ways I can move myself along my path to where I want to be. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in a more successful, happy and satisfied self.”

Drew Price, management consultant and productivity coach in London, said, “Ken’s books are very well thought out, laid out and effectively presented. Many authors tend to over explain their concepts, but Ken’s chapters are short, sharp and focused. Well done!! Readers will get what they need from Ken’s books so they can get what they want in their lives!”

Wallace’s books are available from major online bookstores, including Nook and Kindle versions, or directly from kenwallacecompany.com.
