Uppsala scientists behind acclaimed health site

The health site PQL, which has been tested by Swedish Broadcasting Corporation, among others, has been shown to have a clear effect on health. For instance, treatment via the Internet counteracted stress-related reduction of DHEA, an "anti-aging" hormone. PQL is the result of several years of research at Uppsala University, and recently, in stiff European competition, won honorary mention in the finals of the contest titled "eHealth Awards."

In the last decade stress-related disorders have increased dramatically. A report published by the WHO (Global Burdern of Disease) predicts that these problems will continue to rise in coming decades. Above and beyond personal suffering, stress-related disorders cause economic distress for individuals, companies, and society in general.

Today there is a large array of health-related services available on the Net, but quality-assured information and applications are often lacking. PQL is the only method in the world that has managed to create a diagnosis and treatment program that leads to improvement in stress management, sleep, ability to concentrate, performance, and general well-being, both biological and mental. What is unique about the research behind PQL is its scientific assessment, using psychosocial, biological, and production measures. The scientists behind the method are Professor Bengt Arnetz and doctoral student Dan Hansson, at the Department of Public Health and Caring Science. A few years ago they became interested in what maintains health in times of change, and chose to monitor various groups at leading international IT companies and sections of Swedish Broadcasting Corporation.

"These are lines of business that undergo tremendous change and often work in short, intensive projects," says Bengt Arnetz. One group was administered PQL with feedback, while another group followed the treatment via the Internet, for conflict management or stress management, for example. In the latt
