“An accessible, concise, systematic, and comprehensive primer on wellness and healing.”
—Dr. Gabor Maté, MD, author of When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress
A medical doctor and Harvard-trained mind-body expert shares the key to long-lasting health—stress management—with seven simple tools.
Do you regularly experience pain, anxiety, fatigue, high blood pressure, gut issues, or other symptoms of chronic stress? The continuous and excessive release of stress hormones by the body is the reason for 75 percent of the visits to a doctor's office. What if they said you could manage that chronic stress and its harmful side effects with seven easy and affordable tools? The Mind-Body Cure teaches you to do just that, interweaving evidence-based science with practical advice to calm your mind so you can move from primitive fight-or-flight mode to send healing hormones into your body instead. Dr. Bal Pawa also shares her own story of anxiety and chronic pain following a tragic car accident. Only when she recognized how stress hormones disrupt every system in the 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 good health in The Mind-Body Cure.
Dr. Bal Pawa has spent more than thirty years in healthcare, first as a pharmacist and more recently as a physician with a focus on women’s health. She studied mind-body medicine at Harvard Medical School and is a co-founder of Westcoast Women’s Clinic in Vancouver, BC.
