"An accessible, concise, systematic, and comprehensive primer on wellness and healing."-Dr. Gabor Mate, MD, author of When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress Do you regularly experience chronic pain, anxiety, fatigue, gut issues, or other symptoms of chronic stress? The Mind-Body Cure will teach you how to manage your stress hormones and eliminate chronic stress in 7 simple steps. In The Mind-Body Cure, Bal Pawa, MD shares her own story of chronic pain following a tragic car accident. Only when she recognized how stress hormones were disrupting every system in her body, from digestion to immunity to sleep, was she able to reclaim her health. Having healed herself-and many patients since-Dr. Pawa now shares the secrets to long-lasting health and wellness in The Mind-Body Cure. Most people today are familiar with chronic stress-whether it's family or work pressures, the anxiety we experience each day never seems to end. It may even feel like we're always in fight-or-flight mode. As Dr. Pawa explains, the continuous and excessive release of stress hormones in our bodies are behind 75 percent of visits to a doctor's office. What if we could manage our stress and its harmful side effects with easy and affordable tools? The Mind-Body Cure teaches you to do just that. Dr. Pawa's original REFRAME Toolkit offers 7 simple ways to reduce chronic stress, including making specific changes to your diet, sleep, exercise habits, and more tools including meditation and mindfulness techniques. Interweaving evidence-based science with practical advice to calm your mind, The Mind-Body Cure helps you move from primitive fight-or-flight mode to send healing hormones into your body instead.

Written with compassion, dedication, and rigorous science, this book is the definitive guide to holistic health-both for those who know the mind's power to help heal the body and for those who have yet to discover it." -Shimi Kang, MD, psychiatrist, and bestselling author of The Dolphin Parent and The Tech Solution "Dr. Bal Pawa is a compassionate physician who successfully integrates recommendations for the mind and body. She helps us realize that our thoughts can be our reality, especially when it comes to our health. And she explains how hormones affect our sleep, immune system, and emotions and how we can support them for optimal health." -Lorna R. Vanderhaeghe, author of A Smart Woman's Guide to Hormones

Medical education has grown expeditiously in the last decade, triggered by innovations in educational approaches, such as problem-based learning (PBL) and community-based education (CBE). This had led to medical schools establishing departments for medical education and developing special introductory courses for undergraduate curricula. As a result, an enormous amount of literature is now available for teachers and medical educators, but only a limited amount of medical education material is aimed directly at at students. The International Handbook of Medical Education takes the lead by giving students access to basic medical education, knowledge and skills, presented in a simple and interactive format. The Handbook provides students with a tool to guide them on the road to success during their academic lives and beyond by helping to improve study skills, such as reading, writing, searching and research, and giving students essential information on assessment skills, such as answering multiple-choice questions and preparing for objective structured clinical examination. With this handbook, students will develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will advance their care

Rudolf Steiner's anthroposophical medicine, highly regarded and
widely practiced in Europe, integrates allopathic medical practices
with alternative remedies, including dietary and nutritional
therapies, massage, hydrotherapy, art therapy, and counseling. It
recognizes that health and illness are directly related to our
states of consciousness, and it views illness as an opportunity to
create a new state of physical, emotional, and spiritual balance.
Modern medicine tends to consider only the material aspect of human
beings, an approach that fails to bring the individual to a state
of complete wellness. Steiner's holistic view of humanity-beings
composed of body, soul, and spirit-takes into consideration the
