Dr. Radha Gopalan, gifted heart transplant cardiologist, addresses the confusion and medical mixed messages related to health, wellness, and illness from a unique and powerful perspective that blends his experiences with both Eastern and Western medicine. He delivers not only concepts and personal stories that can change the way you think about health and wellness, but assesses the most common medical conditions that impact our world-from obesity and cancer do lung, liver, kidney, and heart disease. This book was born from 30 years of seeking answers to some intriguing-and sometimes troubling-observations…of people, disease, diagnoses, health, current trends in healthcare systems, and spirituality. In Second Opinion, Dr. Gopalan will explain: How Eastern and Western medicine can work together for optimum health and wellness, How your You Power can shape your personality, reactions, health, and happiness. Why some people who eat healthy, exercise and lead a healthy lifestyle have heart attacks. Why your health is affected more by who you are… than by what you do.

About the Author

Radha Gopalan, M.D. Cardiologist, Acupuncturist and Certified Yoga Instructor

Born in northern Sri-Lanka, Dr. Radha Gopalan started his medical education at North Colombo Medical College in 1985. When civil unrest put his studies on hold, he seized the opportunity to become an acupuncturist at the International University for Complementary Medicines in Colombo, Sri-Lanka. In 1990, and already well versed in Eastern and Western philosophies of medicine, Dr. Gopalan transferred to St. Georges University to complete his medical degree.
By 1993, Dr. Gopalan’s interest in eastern philosophy took him to London, where he worked as an acupuncturist with the acclaimed Dr. Ravi Ponniah. Again, East met West as he observed the integration of Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Osteopathy and herbs in the treatment of patients.

Dr. Gopalan returned to the United States for his post-graduate training in Internal Medicine and Cardiology in New Jersey. He received additional fellowship training in Cardiac Electrophysiology, as well as another fellowship in Heart Transplant at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia. He is also an acupuncturist and certified yoga instructor and is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Heart Transplant and Medical Acupuncture.
After working in Scottsdale, Arizona for several years, he now lives in New York City and continues to blend East and West as a Heart Failure and Heart Transplant Cardiologist.

An absolute must read! I found Second Opinion extremely informative, uplifting and inspirational!! If you are looking for answers as to why your life is not changing or your health not improving etc. This is the book to read. The Author explains the differences between both Eastern and Western medicines and the importance of combining them both with something he calls your YOUPOWER!!! YOUPOWER seems to be the key component to altering the outcome of any life event or health concern. It makes one take a good look deep within. It opens the pathway to answers so one can achieve positive results. I can't wait to read his next book!!!
