This book holds my heart. I carry it with me, wherever I can. It's a perfect adjunct to any belief/support system...with beautiful lessons. For instance, just as we find ourselves believing others will mindfully lead us, we might (instead) discover: we are the answer we were looking for. Or when we witness harm, we might (now) feel a lifetime of fear dissipate as courage breathes into our soul. We might find ourselves experiencing a calm, newfound strength, holding steady (and strong) for those who cannot. We might write healthy, new rules. The significance of these lessons can humble us, provide deeper meaning to our purpose, and help us delightfully grow our humanity...once again. ❤
"In between stimulus and response there's a space. In that space lies our power to choose our response and in our response lies our growth and our freedom." —Viktor Frankl, Psychiatrist, Neurologist, and Holocaust survivor

"...the best part...is helping to spread this life-saving information. I've been speaking at medical conferences a lot lately and have been touched by how many physicians are using my work in their offices. There are doctors that are playing my DVDs on a loop in their waiting rooms. Others have my short videos downloaded on their iPad and play them for patients during visits—showing them a tablet instead of giving them tablets! :) NutritionFacts.org is a free resource for medical students, health professionals, and everybody else." —Michael Greger, M.D.
