Why I’m Obsessed With Stress (Episode 118)

Dr. Doni teaches you how to rebalance and recover from the effects of stress to change your health and extend your life.
In Episode 118 of the How Humans Heal podcast, I re-introduce myself and how I became interested in nutrition, naturopathic medicine, women’s health, and stress.  

Ultimately, more than 90% of health issues are caused by stress.  

If we want to be living longer and maintaining the highest quality of life, we need to be doing everything we can to counteract the effects of stress on our body, mind, and spirit.  

It was what I learned from women in labor that helped me define my theory of how to help humans recover from stress, and eventually to identify my Stress Recovery Protocol.  

Then I moved to Manhattan, right after 9/11, one of the most stressful times in the history of New York.  

My curious mind went to work figuring out how stress was affecting my patients and myself, so that I could then reverse the effects of stress to restore health.  

I started measuring cortisol levels throughout the day, as well as adrenaline levels and neurotransmitter levels. These tests had just become available (not in NY, but in CT), so I opened a practice in Connecticut and started reading every study I could find about how cortisol affects us and what we can use to get it back to optimal.  

It was a long process of trial and error, learning from my patients, adjusting my protocol, and continuing to learn while also lecturing around the country and internationally about how to help humans restore healthy cortisol, neurotransmitters, gut health, methylation, mitochondrial function, and hormones.   

I started writing about my findings starting way back then, which lead to my first book – The Stress Remedy. I went on to write four more books about stress recovery including my latest book – Master Your Stress Reset Your Health.  

Essentially, I found over and over again that we can do what is considered impossible, reversing health issues that were not considered reversible, using my protocol.  

When we achieve optimal cortisol and adrenaline, we reset the effect of stress on our system.  

Most people walk around thinking it is about surviving while imbalanced by stress. Instead, I’m saying, no, you can rebalance and recover from the effects of stress and in doing so, change your health and extend your life.  

You see why I’m so obsessed with stress? It is the key to our health when we learn how to support ourselves through the stress we experience as humans.  

Now I help men, women, and children AROUND THE WORLD to implement my approach.  

I’ll continue with my research of stress recovery activities and teaching patients and practitioners how to implement my Stress Recovery Protocol, which doesn’t exist anywhere else because it was developed by me.  

If you are ready to get your cortisol and adrenaline to optimal and reset from stress, reach out. I’m here to guide you.
