Overview


     Do you say yes when you really mean no? Do you avoid conflict at all costs? Are you waiting for someone in your life to change in order to get what you want? If so, you’re not alone. Most people will do anything to avoid the unpleasant sensations that accompany having an honest exchange—even if it’s as simple as declining an invitation. But not speaking directly in the short term results in a much bigger problem long-term: hurt feelings and passive-aggressive patterns that stress us out, keep us up at night, and literally make us sick.
     You might be thinking, Communication? I know how to communicate. Don’t be fooled. Communication is simple, but it’s not always easy. Many of us learn from an early age to be guarded about what and how we share with others. Few of us know how to pay attention to our body, thoughts, emotions, and values in order to speak from the heart.
     In this book, Neha Sangwan, M.D., reveals practical yet profound communication tools that will strengthen your relationships, reduce your stress, improve your health, and even save you time. Having treated thousands of patients in one of the nation’s largest hospital systems, Doctor Neha discovered a theme: her patients’ inability to communicate often played an underlying role in their illness and how well they were able to recover. Once she understood this correlation, she was inspired to create the simple five-step process you’ll learn in this book. TalkRx will lead you step by step to:

  • Listen to your body’s signals to better manage stress
  • Create new outcomes with even the most challenging personalities in your life
  • Articulate your frustration and disappointment effectively
  • Talk to people instead of about them
  • Make agreements that stick
     “If you’re thinking of someone else in your life who could really use a book on communication,” says Doctor Neha, “let me remind you—it only takes one person to change the outcome of a conversation. And that person is YOU.”

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The answer to the common complaint ‘My doctor never has time to talk to me.’ I loved reading these down-to-earth conversations with a brilliant medical doctor who has taken the time to give straightforward answers to so many common communication and health-related concerns. Priceless information from a medical doctor who is the real deal.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, New York Times best-selling author of I Can See Clearly Now and The Power of Intention

“If you have ever had your mouth say yes and your heart say no, if you have ever not had a conversation because of fear, or if you have had a conversation that turned bad, then you need TalkRx. This groundbreaking, insightful view into human relationships and Doctor Neha’s prescription for communication will reduce your stress, enhance your health, and free you up to experience love, energy, and success in your life.”
Mark Hyman, M.D., director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Blood Sugar Solution

“Doctor Neha shows us how physical intelligence can lead to transformative conversations that can impact the trajectory of our lives. She teaches us how to make every interaction count to enhance our effectiveness as leaders and, perhaps more importantly, our relationship with family and friends. Best of all, we can improve both our emotional and our physical health.”
Susan Sobbott, President, American Express Global Corporate Payments

“When’s the last time your doctor spoke with you about the way your communication impacts your health? If your answer is never, read this book. Let Doctor Neha teach you how good communication can light up the darkest corners of your relationships.”
Dr. David Eagleman, neuroscientist, New York Times best-selling author of Incognito
