My name is Robert Parry, and as a busy professional in today’s fast paced world, I suffered from a problem many people don’t even know exist.
Every aspect of my life was taking a toll for the worst – Health, financial, relationships – and soon plunged me into a dangerous spiral of doubt, worry and despair.
Like me, you may not even know this ‘danger’ has been creeping up on you until months or even years later. And by the time you realize there is a problem, you will start panicking because it is almost irreversible and you just don’t know what to do anymore.
Success these days requires a whole lot of dedication and time, and though I knew the risks, I believed I was capable of balancing health, private and work life. To have a proper work-life balance. But unfortunately, I soon discovered it wasn’t as easy as I thought.

Eventually, I visited the doctor because I just couldn’t pinpoint my problems. When I gave him a list of my symptoms, I hoped he’d have the magical cure, or at least know what was ailing me. But he didn’t have a clue.
Physicians were unable to diagnose the cause of my various problems. Primarily, the difficulty comes from having such a wide range of symptoms that it sounds like a million different things could be the cause.
