About the Book

In a concise form, devoid of academic rhetoric, this book describes how our emotions lead to common everyday illnesses. In today’s family medicine clinics a large proportion of patients are presenting with such obvious emotional issues as depression, anxiety, panic attacks. This book seeks to show how other not so obviously emotional disease such high blood pressure, diabetes, strokes, heart attacks , obesity among other illnesses are emotional issues. For instance did you know that weight loss is almost always virtually impossible if the emotional issues surrounding obesity are not addressed? Now you will know why most diets fail to get rid of that excess flab. By reading this book it is hoped you will see this connection between your emotions and disease.

The book seeks to show you in easy to understand language how you can take charge of your emotions and lead a healthier life.
