    Fantastic book on healing!

    Instinct to Heal is a wonderful book on mind-body healing. The case studies are excellent and drive home the points the author makes with interest and clarity. The book is easy to read, yet filled with useful and practical information. The chapter on the cognitive and emotional brains is the best explanation I¿ve ever read about how the brain functions. The chapters on Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and acupuncture invite us to try two methods that have shown to be enormously beneficial from treating trauma to emotional blocks. Dr. David Servan-Schrieber has written a provocative book on how we can take responsibility on our own journey to holistic healing. I highly recommend it.

    strong self help book

    With millions of Americans suffering from stress, anxiety and depression, Dr. David Servan-Schreiber offers seven holistic alternatives to the usual chemical-baring the soul solution. Using his work as a Doctors without Borders participant where economics forces non cost solutions, Dr. Servan-Schreiber provides other possibilities that he has observed work. Though anecdotal and the author agrees greater scientific testing should occur, he combines his observation with data in an easy to follow and even easier to use format. Readers learn about Qi (acupuncture), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, dawn simulation, heart coherence and nutrition, etc. As in the third world nations, economics plays a vital role in American as Dr. Servan-Schreiber feels many of these stand-ins are not given a chance because there is not a lot of money to be made on them. Adding a chapter on the importance of and improving personal communication in any relationship (including with one¿s self ¿ ¿to thine own self be true¿), readers receive a terrific constructive and effective reference book that offers help to those who find drugs and chit chat failing. <P>Harriet Klausner
