Holistic health expert Dr. Andrew Weil sees an emotional health crisis in America. Not only are an alarming number of people suffering from mild to severe depression, the biomedical model is failing to help them.
Dr. Weil's prescription for what he calls spontaneous happiness includes lifestyle, behavioral and dietary changes that draw from a vast array of ancient and modern therapies including Ayurveda, acupuncture, herbal medicine, psychotherapy, exercise therapy, mindfulness training, and much more.
