5 Step Stress Immunization

Dr. Frank Sommers treated soldiers in Afghanistan as the deployed military psychiatrist at Kandahar Airfield (KAF). He developed and utilized a 5 Step ‘Stress Immunization’ program which has proven to be an effective natural method for relaxing, focusing and channeling the power of the mind, allowing soldiers to go into harm’s way and still maximize their ability to carry out their mission.

His book Lose Weight, Stop Stress and Make Better Love: 5 Easy Steps by Training Your Brain, captures the mindfulness techniques that he developed to help soldiers deal with the stress they faced in life-threatening situations and translates them into methods that can be used with success in those crucial stress-laden areas of our everyday lives which are most troublesome: weight loss, bad habits, substance abuse, work stress, and relationships; even the sex we have with those we love.

“It’s not stress that kills us; it is our reaction to it. The past is a primary source of anger and the future is a primary source of stress,” Dr. Sommers says.“We live in the present, in the ‘here and now’ and the key to controlling what happens to us is to successfully relax and calmly assess the choices we must make”.
