There’s no way around it: The human body is designed to get sick. Illness is the body’s way of calling attention to a bigger problem. Aches and pains—whether annoying or debilitating, acute or chronic— mean that something’s out of balance. What they don’t mean is that you’re not in control. Because your body takes its cues from your thoughts and emotions—and not the other way around—you can take control of your health, rather than letting your health take control of you. In Your Health Destiny, Dr. Eva Selhub shows you how. After treating thousands of patients with a myriad of health problems— from heart disease and cancer to depression and anxiety— Dr. Selhub discovered that simple and easy-to-implement shifts in lifestyle, attitude, and overall approach to stress not only reduces your reliance on conventional medicine but, more importantly, prevents and reverses all types of disease before they can take root.
Fear, anger, and anxiety–the side effects of life’s everyday stresses–are natural and sometimes helpful, but left unchecked they can lead to a host of debilitating ailments that are now so common we assume they are unavoidable: heart disease, arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, depression, and more.
There is good news, though: The key to a healthy life free of these conditions is to activate what Harvard Medical School instructor Dr. Eva Selhub calls the love response: a series of biochemical reactions that lower blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, and adrenaline levels, stimulating physical healing and reinstating balance and well-being. A practical life-healing program, the first of its kind, The Love Response is the result of Dr. Selhub’s years of research–and clinical practice–on how to reverse the destructive physical effects of fear and stress, and banish emotional wounds from the past.
Scientific studies have shown that natural environments can have remarkable benefits for human health. A powerful wake-up call for our tech-immersed society, Your Brain on Nature examines the fascinating effects that exposure to nature can have on the brain.
In Your Brain on Nature, physician Eva Selhub and naturopath Alan Logan examine not only the effects of nature on the brain—but the ubiquitous influence of everyday technology on the brain, and how IT overload and its many distractions may even be changing it.
