Reading for the 2nd time. Most recently started October 17, 2020.

Simply brilliant - the clearest book I have read about the importance of approaching disease from a mind-body perspective. It is never too late to look at the impact of ineffective coping with our emotions on our long term health. The short version is that not dealing with our feelings causes stress, which causes cortisol levels to rise, which impairs our immune system, leaving us vulnerable to catastrophic illness. Read this book and take it to heart. Your life literally depends on it!
