Susan Smith Jones, Ph.D.

Who is not under stress these days? From concerns about Covid, to inflation, to health and healing issues, to lacking faith and confidence or feeling depressed, to making ends meet each month, to looking older and flabbier by the week, to squabbles with family or employees/bosses — learning to manage stress is more important than ever before.

Susan Smith Jones, Ph.D.—holistic health educator and lifestyle expert with 40+ years of experience and author of 33 books—says that too much unmanaged stress can sabotage even the best of health intentions and put you at greater risk for disease and mental health issues. In her latest book, WIRED FOR HIGH-LEVEL WELLNESS: Simple Ways to Rejuvenate, Meditate & Prosper, she says it’s impossible to create vibrant health if you are always stressed out. Chronic stress, she writes, causes weight gain, immune dysfunction, fatigue, depression, all kinds of disease, and more.

For a woman with three of America’s most ordinary names, Susan Smith Jones, Ph.D., has certainly made extraordinary contributions in the fields of holistic health, anti-aging, optimum nutrition and balanced living. For starters, she taught students, staff and faculty at UCLA how to be healthy and fit for 30 years! Susan is the founder and president of Health Unlimited, a Los Angeles-based consulting firm dedicated to optimal wellness, health education and human potential.
