Product Details


“Learning to control emotions is both difficult and rewarding, probably one of the most important steps to attain optimum health of both mind and body. Dr. Eve Wood has authored a detailed and practi-cal guide to help you do it. I recommend this book and am completely in agreement with the philosophy behind it.”

“Psychiatrist Eve Wood, America’s number one practitioner/educator in mental illness and integrative medicine, understands that our minds can’t, don’t, or won’t always register the emotions that impact us so profoundly. Her long-awaited, authoritative new book is an outstanding resource for navigating the myriad mainstream and alternative options to empower the reader to make informed decisions about treatment choices. Dr. Wood has created a balanced work that health-care providers, patients with psychiatric diagnoses, and anyone interested in developing their mental wellness will find extremely useful.”

Dr. Wood demystifies psychiatry without talking down to her readers, taking it that extra, badly needed step: She explains the cutting-edge mind-body therapies that are making such impressive inroads with what have traditionally been daunting mental-health challenges. A wonderful resource for those who want to know how to make smart, individualized choices that respect their unique needs and collaborate with their inborn abilities.”
