Dr Annette Poizner (graphology) and Paul Huljich (stress management) next Guests.

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

Annette Poizner_Print_13PaulHuljich_headshotDr Annette Poizner (left) and Paul Hiljich will be the nest guests on the Holistic Health Show.

Annette Poizner, MSSW, Ed.D., RSW, is a Columbia-trained clinical social worker whose doctoral dissertation, completed at the University of Toronto, explored the use of graphology within psychotherapy. She is a practicing psychotherapist, executive coach and hypnotherapist. She has presented on the psychology of handwriting at clinical conferences and in public forums, blogs on this topic on the Huffington Post and recently published, “Clinical Graphology: An Interpretive Manual for Mental Health Practitioners” through Charles C Thomas Publishers, a leading academic publishing house. Her work has been featured in dailies across Canada and in trade magazines. She is a founding board member of the Milton H Erickson Institute of Toronto. Many of her professional publications can be accessed on her website http://www.annettepoizner.com.
Paul Huljich, Chairman and Joint CEO, co-founded Best Corporation, a pioneering organic foods company listed on the stock exchange. While leading the company to great success, during which its value grew to more than $100 million, he eventually developed a number of severe stress-related conditions and was diagnosed by several psychiatrists in 1998 as suffering from bipolar disorder as a result of years of unchecked stress. That year, he experienced a nervous breakdown, losing his rights as a citizen and being made a ward of the state.

 Despite seeking the very best care available Huljich was informed that there was no cure and that he would inevitably relapse. Determined to free himself of his conditions, he began a comprehensive search for answers. He traveled to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and admitted himself to the Menninger Clinic in Kansas.

 Aided by exhaustive research, Huljich ultimately succeeded in mastering his stress, overcoming his conditions and achieving a healthy, positive way of life by developing and implementing his nine-step overall wellness plan.

 Since the year 2000, Huljich has not taken medications related to his conditions, suffered any relapse nor needed any further treatment. He has fully cured himself and he has never felt better. He is back better and stronger than before. He shares his personal story and  his path to recovery and wellness in Stress Pandemic: The Lifestyle Solution, 9 Natural Steps to Survive, Master Stress and Live Well (July  31, 2012, Mwella Publishing).

 Huljich is a member of the American Institute of Stress, a life style and stress management expert and Author of two books. His previous book, Betrayal of Love and Freedom, a novel based in part on his experiences, addresses the subject of mental wellness. He has been featured in Psychology Today “One of this seasons most talked about books”, Publishers Weekly “valuable resource”, Forward Magazine “awareness and prevention can be a powerful tools for wellness”, Kirkus “A commonsense guide to managing everyday stress”,  reviewed by the American Institute of Stress as “well researched and scientifically proven” and interviewed by more than 180 radio shows nation wide including BBC and CBS. Huljich has had numerous television appearances  including Fox25 and Fox5 and featured in more than 140 newspapers and magazines. Paul is at present on a 20 Stress city book tour ending in a seminar in  “say ‘No’ to stress” in Maui – Hawaii. 

 Paul is the father of three sons: Mark, Simon and Richard. He resides in New York City for most of the year which he enjoys very much. He wrote  Stress Pandemic while in New York. He visits his homeland, New Zealand, regularly. More information is available at: http://www.StressPandemic.com

Dr Lise Alscholer who was interviewed by Dr Carl O Helvie on the Holistic Health Show this week offers some good information on natural substances to alleviate stress in her book the Definitive Guide to Cancer: An Integrative Approach to Prevention, Treatment, and Healing.
Stress can be a destructive force in all of our lives and natural substances to relieve or alleviate it should be welcome by all. She says the following herbs and nutrients have been shown to possess anti-stress properties.
Siberian ginseng has a normalizing effect on body homeostasis and improves immune functions and overall well-being.
Panax ginseng should be used under the supervision of a health care profession to prevent overstimulation. However, it can improve immune functioning, physical stanima, and mental acuity, and also increase resistance to toxic environmental substances.
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) “also known as Indian ginseng, protects against stress-induced ulceration, lowers chronically elevated cortisol, enhanses energy, reduces anxiety, and can counteract stress-induced hyperglycemia.”

Some specific nutrients identified include:
Vitamin C-“helps normalize levels of cortisol and ACTH” (another stress hormone) when severe stress is present.
“Vitamin B1-protects the adrenal glands from functional exhaustion. ”
“Vitamin B2-enhances adrenal function and helps regulate cortisol levels.”
“Alpha-lipoic acid-helps prevent toxic accumulation in tissues (caution with certain chemotherapy drugs and radiation therapy.”
“L-tyrosine helps restore the ability to perform tasks under stress. ”
