A drug-free, side effect-free solution to common stress and mood problems—developed by two physicians
The audio exercises included with this book can be accessed online at Access instructions are also provided within the book.
Millions of Americans suffer from mood problems and stress-related issues like anxiety, depression, insomnia, and PTSD. Far too many of them are taking medications that have troublesome side effects, withdrawal symptoms, and disappointing success rates.
In The Healing Power of the Breath, Dr. Richard P. Brown and Dr. Patricia L. Gerbarg provide a different way to treat stress: breathing. Drawn from yoga, Buddhist meditation, the Chinese practice of qigong, and other sources, their science-backed methods activate communication pathways between the mind and body to positively impact the brain and calm the stress response. Their anecdotes and easy-to-follow exercises will show you how to apply breathing techniques to help relieve:
· Anxiety and depression
· Trauma-related emotions and behaviors
· Post-traumatic stress disorder
· Insomnia
· Addiction-related behaviors
Complete with an audio download, this book gives you the coping tools you need to lead a calmer, more stress-free life.
