Dr. Andrew Weil, MD is well-recognized for his willingness to go beyond the medicine that US physicians are taught. He tells in his book Breathing, the Master Key to Self Healing, that he had to discover on his own the power of breath to heal and inspire shifts in mood (essential to healing).
Thanks to a reader of this blog, I was directed to a short yet helpful interview with Dr. Weil in which he discusses depression, brain chemistry, the power of thought to change the brain, anti-inflammatory diets and supplements. He also talks about one of my favorite subjects: gratitude. He considers gratitude both a discipline and medicine.
Thanks, Jim, for the tip.
