"Hat's off to Peter McCarthy for putting such a powerful expose together concerning the pandemic health issues that we face today. For over 30 years, Peter has been ringing the warning bell and fighting an uphill battle to protect our health freedom. Now, he has documented his experiences in Adrenaline Nation with the hope that his warnings will be clearly understood. Peter’s effort to make a positive difference in the health and wellness of Americans comes from the heart. His intensive research behind epidemic disease and chronic stress can change the direction we are going in America. Adrenaline Nation is a must read for everyone." -- Janet Starr Hull, PhD, CN, Author of Sweet Poison and Splenda®: Is It Safe Or Not?
“A fascinating look at the whole picture of stress and how it affects our health. Adrenaline Nation presents an amazing amount of information, covering the wide spectrum of stress factors, but also showing how they work together in a holistic manner. Mainstream medicine virtually ignores almost all of these factors even though stress is a significant source of disease and illness. I can testify from personal experience that most of us don't appreciate what stress can do to our health until it's too late. Great job!" – Alan Smith, Author, UnBreak Your Health
"Peter McCarthy is like no other CAM guy I’ve even met, and I’ve met quite a few in my thirty years defending medical mavericks. He’s an Air Force Academy graduate, has advanced training in management and organizations, and was operations officer for a Strategic Air Command B 52 Wing (and talk about maintaining optimum performance while managing the stress of individuals who at any instant may be called upon to deliver a nuclear response). And the same guy easily converses about the intricacies of endocrine gland functions, vibrational medicine and the latest research on the causes of stress. And then there’s his deep involvement in the health freedom movement which has given him the opportunity to observe up-close the scientific/political battles between mainstream medicine and CAM. The result of Peter’s eclectic life experiences is Adrenaline Nation. Peter’s book is a multidimensional, almost fractal look at stress starting at the micro level of physiology, continuing to the more macro level of organizations, then to the big picture of societal stress and its effect on the health of the nation, and finishes up with practical advice to lower stress levels. Only Lt. Col. (retired) Peter McCarthy, Traditional Naturopath could have written a book this insightful and comprehensive. Read it!" -- Richard Jaffe, Esq., attorney and author of Galileo’s Lawyer
"With his book Adrenaline Nation, Peter McCarthy has presented, in a nutshell, what chronic stress is doing to our society. His informal, almost folksy writing style belies substantial useful information about stress; its common but often unrecognized sources, gender differences, impact on the body, self-creation, and a host of other insights designed to help you better understand and manage the stress in your life." - James L Wilson, DC, ND, PhD, Author of Adrenal Fatigue
"Dr. Doris Rapp calls it the stress barrel, Peter McCarthy ups the ante and labels it the stress stack. When the barrel is too full or the stack is too high, and there is no time to recover, we are subjecting our bodies to acute and chronic disease. Stress is so pervasive it’s become the underlying source of our current health care crisis. Kudos to Peter for making this abundantly clear in Adrenaline Nation and offering solutions that can eliminate this threat to our lives." -- Carolyn Dean MD ND, Medical Director of The Nutritional Magnesium Association and author of The Magnesium Miracle
“With Adrenaline Nation, Peter McCarthy has performed a great service to us all, making the complicated subject of chronic stress easy for patients to understand, and giving practitioners a useful tool to facilitate that understanding.

With an inadequate health care system bankrupting our nation while overall health declines, he boldly outlines a new path that will renew our health and that of these interconnected systems. Read this book!” -- Hyla Cass, MD, author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health; Natural Highs: Supplements, Nutrition, and Mind-Body Techniques to Help You Feel Good All the Time; Supplement Your Prescription: What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutrition
