Overview


Three experts: a physician, a psychologist, and a spiritually oriented clinical counselor intertwine their experiences and knowledge to address the “whole you”. They show that there is no gap between physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of health; all aspects are interrelated and it's powerfully helpful to see this way. Blending their approaches produces a result that is greater than the sum of the parts -- like a "human quilt" -- each contributes to a healthy, satisfying life. In this book, you'll learn how your body's health affects your mental and spiritual health and how to take better care of your body. You'll find how your mind affects your physical and spiritual health and how to take care of your mind. And you'll be shown what impact your beliefs about the meaning of life -- your spirituality -- have on body and mind and how to nurture your spirituality. Discover techniques to help you manage many challenging life issues including stress, depression, aggression, addiction, chronic illness, and aging. Learn to identify how you're functioning, what you can do to improve, and how to examine, plan, and track your progress.
