ST. LOUIS, MO -- While many people instantly recognize symptoms of various medical diseases, the results and impact of extreme stress may often be overlooked by those who do not know the consequences if left untreated.
"The signs and symptoms of other, more widely known problems are often quickly identified," says Jeff Eastman, of Clayton Stress Institute (claytonstress.com). "However, for many in this time of fast-paced lifestyles and busy schedules, extreme stress is not given the consideration or attention warranted to avoid difficulties it can bring."
A survey from the American Psychological Association says that about one-third of the adults in the United States report having extreme stress. Almost one in five say they reach their top stress level about 15 or more days during each month, the survey says, and nearly half reported an increase in of stress over the past five years.
Many of the participants of the survey indicated stress was a natural part of life. They suffered emotionally, physically, professionally, and personally because of stress, the survey says.
"Extreme stress can takes a major toll on your mind and heart, and a major toll on how you function in life," says Nick Dewan, M.D., chief health officer of Clayton Stress Institute
