Public health & preventive medicine

Stress, anxiety and depression are among the most common reasons for people to see the doctor. The drugs targeting these conditions are pharmaceutical bestsellers. Yet a majority of patients would like to be able to heal without taking drugs or engaging in therapy that involves talking about their problems. Dr Servan-Schreiber gathers together, in one place, the answers to the public's questions about alternatives to drugs and talk therapy. He discusses only treatment methods he has used with patients himself, methods which have been proven to work in clinical studies. Beautifully written, with many pertinent case histories, this book will be a revelation to those who dismiss alternative medicine and a godsend to those who are looking for help without taking drugs and without talk therapy. About the Author David Servan-Schreiber M.D., Ph.D., was Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and co-founder of the Center for Integrative Medicine. He co-directed an NIH laboratory for the study of clinical cognitive neuroscience and has published more than ninety articles in scientific journals. His last book, Anticancer, A New Way of Life, became an international bestseller and was translated into more than forty languages. His previous book, Healing Without Freud or Prozac was also an international bestseller. Following a yearlong battle with a relapse of brain cancer, David died in July 2011.
