The stress hormone cortisol is so powerful that a slight excess or deficiency will - over a period of years - have terrible effects on our health. While a cortisol deficiency can have grave consequences of its own THE POTBELLY SYNDROME focuses on the effects of excess cortisol called hypercortisolism. While many factors influence cortisol levels, chronic infection with common germs is a main cause of hypercortisolism. Unfortunately this cause is all too often overlooked or ignored by the medical community. In THE POTBELLY SYNDROME the authors introduce readers to some common germs that are very likely residing in their bodies. They explain how these infections cause a chronically elevated cortisol level, with all its negative effects, eventually leading to the potbelly syndrome and what steps people can take to protect themselves. The authors also address other causes of high cortisol levels since these contribute even further to ill health. Hypercortisolism like old age creeps up on us. At first we don't notice the effects or maybe we pretend they don't exist but before long they can no longer be ignored.
We take steps to rectify the problem, like trying a new and improved diet and taking daily exercise, but we don't get to the heart of the matter. This book clarifies the cause of hypercortisolism so that readers can do something about it.
