Presenter: James L. Wilson
Dr. James L. Wilson is an internationally recognized authority on stress and a sought-after speaker at prestigious medical conferences around the world. He has contributed significantly to the clinical understanding of stress, nutrition and endocrine function, and is the physician who coined the term “adrenal fatigue” to describe a distinct, diagnosable syndrome. While in private practice, his clinic was so successful that despite being located in a small rural town, he had a six-month waiting list of patients, many of whom traveled hundreds of miles for a consultation. With a researcher’s grasp of science and a clinician’s understanding of its human impact, Dr. Wilson has also helped thousands of healthcare professionals work more effectively with patients suffering from adrenal fatigue and stress-related problems. One of his key contributions in clinical education was to identify the importance of optimal adrenal function in hormone balance and the efficacy of natural therapies in promoting hormone homeostasis. His best-selling book, Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome, has been translated into seven languages and is now in its 26th printing
