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.
