Holistic Approaches to Mental Health

Statistically, one in five people in the developed world will struggle with a mental health issue at some point in their lives. At the current time the go-to person is a doctor or conventionally trained psychological therapist. The author suggests that many aspects of this approach are outdated.

In this book, Mental Distress is classified using the Maslow Hierarchy of Needs Model and considers several problem solving approaches outside the medical mainstream such as Healing and Buddhist Psychotherapy. It also discusses subjects that are completely taboo in Medicine such as Past Life Regression Therapy and After Life Spirit Communication.

It is also hoped that this book will bring a new and interesting dimension to the public debate on mental health.

Lorenzo’s Opinion

Alternative Medicine has been around for centuries. In the last 40 years, therapies and Medical Systems outside conventional medicine have been put under the umbrella term of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). Traditionally, patients have experimented with CAM in search of relief when modern medicine has not been effective. In this book the author attempts to bring the subject up to date and evaluates the current status of the more popular therapies from a conventional doctors’ point of view.

Over a dozen diseases are individually looked at and CAM is evaluated from the point of view as an adjunct to conventional treatment.This book is written for the lay person and will hopefully assist sufferers to make more informed decisions when consulting with complementary therapists.
