This book is narration by a psychiatrist. The purpose of this book is to provide education, information and knowledge about mental health and prevention of psychological illnesses. For this reason, Dr Shrivastava, a long time psychiatrist, has compiled stories of problems faced by patients and treatments they received with frank discussion and academic facts. One out of five people in our society suffer from a mental disorder. The experience of psychological illness disconnects them from their own selves. Though it is a treatable condition, patients seldom receive treatment. One of the main barriers is the stigma which is a clinical risk factor. We are unable to deal with stigma because people do not speak up about their experiences. We are unable to project examples of successful treatment. This limitation increases stigma.

The power of laughter triumphs over illness in Norman Cousins’s bestselling classic memoir that revolutionized medicine. Norman Cousins’s iconic firsthand account of victory against terminal disease, Anatomy of an Illness as Perceived by the Patient inspired a revolution, encouraging patients to take charge of their own treatment.

When Cousins was hospitalized with a debilitating collagen illness, he decided to take his health into his own hands. Cousins and his doctor combated the disease together by creating a regimen of laughter and vitamin C specifically calibrated to his needs. Against all odds, the treatment worked, proving to Cousins that a positive attitude was key to his improvement. Years later, Cousins set pen to paper to tell the story of his recovery. In this humorous and insightful account, Cousins analyzes his own journey in relation to holistic medicine and discusses the astounding power of mind over body. The result is an inspirational and educational guide to health that continues to offer hope to many. This ebook features an extended biography of Norman Cousins by his daughter, Sarah Cousins Shapiro.

Medical Ethics In The Ancient World

Author : Paul J. Carrick
ISBN : 1589018613

In this book Paul Carrick charts the ancient Greek and Roman foundations of Western medical ethics. Surveying 1500 years of pre-Christian medical moral history, Carrick applies insights from ancient medical ethics to developments in contemporary medicine such as advance directives, gene therapy, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, and surrogate motherhood. He discusses such timeless issues as the social status of the physician; attitudes toward dying and death; and the relationship of medicine to philosophy, religion, and popular morality. Opinions of a wide range of ancient thinkers are consulted, including physicians, poets, philosophers, and patients. He also explores the puzzling question of Hippocrates' identity, analyzing not only the Hippocratic Oath but also the Father of Medicine's lesser-known works. Complete with chapter discussion questions, illustrations, a map, and appendices of ethical codes, Medical Ethics in the Ancient World will be useful in courses on the medical humanities, ancient philosophy, bioethics, comparative cultures, and the history of medicine. Accessible to both professionals and to those with little background in medical philosophy or ancient science, Carrick's book demonstrates that in the ancient world, as in our own postmodern age, physicians, philosophers, and patients embraced a diverse array of perspectives on the most fundamental questions of life and death.

In 2008, Bridged Ruden suffered severe traumatic brain injury following a bicycle accident. Her life resumed as if she were a three-year-old having to relearn many of the life skills that she lost as a result of her injury. This story chronicles her journey - waxing and waning - towards healing. "Bridgid's presentation as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivor is profound, miraculous and engaging. Her voice of expression paints the terrain of every emotion that one goes through when life presents a major shift in who you are, what you do and how you navigate through breath at a time. Bridgid threads the lively and interactive presentation with truth, tears, laughter...authenticity. One walks away from her presentation marveling with awe at how strong and amazing she is to have survived such an intense journey of healing. Perhaps we all are touched by an angel when you hear her story." --Dr. Jane F. Bourgeois "Bridgid, you are a miracle." I remember as your physician telling you these words in our clinic as I reviewed your brain CT scan from your initial head injury. Although you are not alone in suffering a significant traumatic head injury, I believe that you are unique in your positive approach to your recovery, your dedication to sharing your experience, and your commitment to helping and motivating others to overcome their own life obstacles and adversity. As a physician I deeply and sincerely admire your efforts and your positive attitude in dealing with a truly difficult and challenging personal experience. I am always pleased to hear of the many positive life changes that have occurred for you as you continue on your journey towards recovery. I also always get a kick out of your ability to share your experiences with the medical system and in our clinic when you speak publically. I wish you good luck and great success on your book, and I hope that your message of hope, recovery, and optimism reaches as many people as possible so that they can benefit from your experience, wisdom, and wit. Although we sometimes are witness to events that are miraculous, sometimes the real miracles are people like you." --Dr. Andrew Lee
