Heart and Soul: A Psychological and Spiritual: Guide to Preventing and Healing Heart Disease
ISBN: 067942380X Villard. 1995 Heart and Soul is the first book by a medical doctor to teach how spirituality, love, joy, understanding, responsibility, and laughter are tenets as essential as medication in battling coronary artery disease. An empathetic and proven healer, Dr. Cortis teaches that, in proper doses, the most powerful elixirs for disease treatment and prevention are self-empowerment, self-responsibility, spirituality, understanding, and communication.
Take Mr. Kurtz, for example - a sixty-one-year-old full-time manual laborer who, after suffering two heart attacks, says, "Why should I quit working? Why should I quit anything? I like my work. I like my wife and family. I like laughter." Or Dr. White, who survived a massive quintuple-bypass operation, returned to work, and has since trekked through the Himalayas. Profound, heart-warming recoveries of this kind fill the pages of Heart and Soul they are inspirational - and a testament to Dr. Cortis's work.
The consequences of living with anxiety, denial, depression, and anger can be fatal. With its invaluable discussion of symptoms, stress-relieving techniques, tips on how to find the right doctor, and simple quizzes and questionnaires, Heart and Soul is for anyone concerned about his or her health.
