A respected natural health professional in multiple disciplines with a specialty in stress-mastery; a 20-year military pilot, commander and trainer; a former Southwest Airlines commercial pilot; speaker, author, columnist and activist; and now media entrepreneur—the multi-faceted McCarthy has just embarked on a national crusade to get America unwired and decompressed.
His new book Adrenaline Nation is an insightful and powerful look at what stress is doing to us individually and to our nation—and it provides the antidote to our self-destructive trajectory. Adrenaline Nation is the culmination of everything he has learned, discovered, taught and advocated in his highly accomplished career.
Peter is a nationally board certified traditional naturopath and CEO of Life Energy Holistic Partners, an integrative stress management and wellness consulting practice based in Helotes, TX. He is a highly respected expert in his field and today he also serves as CEO of AHI Productions, an Austin-based media company which is creating NHN TV, the planet’s first broadcast-quality, Web-based TV network devoted to natural health and green living.
While having his feet firmly planted on the ground in business and healthcare, Peter is also a man of the skies. As a pilot of B-52 bombers, commander of a squadron, and Pentagon Air Force aide during his distinguished military career, he knows about stress. Upon retiring from the military as a Lieutenant Colonel, he joined Southwest Airlines as Captain/First Officer. He retired from Southwest in 2009 to continue his campaign to educate people about stress. He’s flown almost 17,000 hours. Peter knows the effects of stress first hand and has seen what it has done to his family, friends, coworkers, clients and the nation at large.
Adrenaline Nation is Peter McCarthy’s quest to change the way we think and the way in which we address one of today’s most critical and chronic problems.
