According to Dr Bruce Lipton, cellular biologist at Stanford Medical School, 95% of all illness is caused by stress (1). For many people, stress is impacting their well being and overall functioning and they don’t even realize it. Please enjoy this short slide show about the many potential signs of stress*:
* This slideshow is intended to raise awareness of signs and potential impacts of unmanaged stress. We offer effortless stress management, we do do not diagnose or treat medical conditions, if you have chronic or debilitating symptoms, consult you doctor.

Stress and burnout in the workplace can be very costly for employers. It can lead to poor performance, increased absenteeism and employee turnover. Unmanaged stress can also exacerbate mental and physical health concerns for employees.
NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training is an effortless and enjoyable way to get a jump on stress management in the workplace. In 2016 Serenity ran a pilot program with municipal employees at the City of Fort Worth. Here is what some of them had to say about the training.
Participating employees indicated a significant reduction in perceived stress and burnout after 20 sessions, the benefits were lasting based on 3 month and 6 month post training follow up surveys.
Stress and Aging
Telomeres are the protective end caps on each DNA strand. Telomere shortening has become a measure of biological aging – shorter telomeres = greater biological age and higher propensity for DNA damage.
Multiple studies have found a connection between high levels of perceived stress and shorter telomeres. Generally, the length of your telomeres relative to your chronological age can give you an indication of how well you are aging. Thanks to modern technology, you can now test your telomeres and see how you are doing. If your TeloYears test shows that your biological age is significantly higher than your chronological age, you may be able to take steps to reverse this trend. Stress management with neurofeedback training as part of a healthy lifestyle is a great way to start!
Long time NeurOptimal® trainer Alan Bachers, PhD had his own telomeres tested and found that his biological age was a whopping 20 years lower than his chronological age. Skeptical of the results, he had a second test done which confirmed the initial one. Given that he has had hundreds of NeurOptimal® sessions himself over the last 20 years, might there be a correlation?
Chronic stress can exacerbate many mental and physical health concerns.
