Body, mind, heart, and spirit—these the four dimensions of wellness that Rajiv Parti, M.D. (Dr. Raj) uses as the foundation of his powerful new outlook on integral health. And in his new book, The Soul of Wellness:12 Holistic Principles for Achieving a Healthy Body, Mind, Heart, and Spirit, he teaches us how to build on this groundwork as a regimen to help those who suffer from depression, anxiety, chemical dependency, and other maladies. The wisdom behind these principles is as ancient as human civilization, yet as cutting edge as modern science.
Dr. Raj is one of the world’s leading experts in pain management and has over thirty years’ experience as a practicing physician of Western medicine. But the health approach he advocates (in his “twelve holistic principles”) incorporates Eastern spiritual traditions such as yoga, meditation, and the principles of the Hindu healing science of Ayurveda.
Dr. Raj developed and refined his method during his personal battles with severe health problems. Having undergone a seven-year ordeal of coping with cancer, chronic pain, stress, depression, and addiction, he now stands as indisputable evidence of the efficacy of this alternative approach to curing illness. His principals, techniques, and exercises following each Principle he recommends can be easily integrated into any health management program, and with them Dr. Raj shows us a clear path to total wellness. The Soul of Wellness delivers a wonderfully insightful path towards achieving peace for one’s self while improving physical and emotional well-being.
