STRESS: a short, unassuming word used to describe an emotional state that is impacting your physical and mental functioning.

Dr. Mark walks you through a simple explanation of how your body handles stress and then addresses the most common health issues including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, postpartum depression, seasonal affective disorder, and attention deficit disorder.
