Body, mind, heart, and spirit—these are the four dimensions of wellness that Rajiv Parti, M.D. (Dr. Raj) uses as the foundation for his powerful new outlook on integral health. His new book, The Soul of Wellness: 12 Holistic Principles for Achieving a Healthy Body, Mind, Heart, and Spirit, teaches us how to build on this groundwork as a regimen to help those who suffer from depression, anxiety, chemical dependency, and other maladies.
Dr. Raj has over thirty years’ experience as a practicing physician of Western medicine and he is one of the world’s leading experts in pain management. But the health approach he advocates in his “twelve holistic principles” incorporates Eastern spiritual traditions such as yoga, meditation, and the Hindu healing science of Ayurveda. Each chapter is dedicated to one of Dr. Raj’s twelve principles and introduces two exercises that can be easily integrated into any health management program. He also includes true stories about individuals who solved their health problems by incorporating these holistic methods through simple lifestyle changes. The Soul of Wellness is a personal handbook, tailoring itself to each reader with its enjoyable exercises and inspirational stories that work together to help achieve greater health and happiness.
