How to Stay Out of My Emergency Room: Master Your Health and Find Joy in Life by Balancing the Power of Your Mind, Your Body, and Your Higher Self
After twenty-seven years treating patients in emergency rooms, Dr. Mona Balogh noticed a trend: from heart failure to addiction, people chronically use ERs to address disease. These “frequent flyers” are ER regulars with little understanding of their illness or how to help themselves. Dr. Balogh knew these patients deserved more from medicine—there had to be a better way.
In How to Stay Out of My Emergency Room, Dr. Balogh combines Western and Eastern approaches to show us how to overcome harmful mindsets that prevent us from recovering. By applying the Eastern philosophy of opposing forces and dynamic tension with the time-tested methods of The 12 Steps and Vipassana, she shows us how to incorporate meditation to choose a healthier lifestyle. If you or someone you know feels stuck in an unhealthy rut, this book will help you find the right strategy to conquer a vicious cycle and discover your best self.
