Have you struggled with brain chatter?
Dr. Leonid Altshuler M.D., a board-certified psychiatrist, went through years of misdiagnosis and suffering before he discovered an innate connection between stress, diet and physical and mental health.
On a sunny day he went to Nepal to have a major mental tune up after living a hectic life in NY city for a couple of years.
His Master Hindu Priest and physician Bishal had opened a meditation retreat for westerners, spending their life imprisoned in cars and endlessly distracting jobs, to teach them walking mediation.
He did not know that this meditation would become the major therapeutic tool he utilizes in the treatment of depression, anxiety and insomnia, especially among patients suffering from being overweight.
This meditation technique is unique one. He has never heard of it before and, according to his teacher, Master Bishal, it is widely being utilized by the monks living in the Hindu Temples up in the mountains on the border with India.
The meditation routine is extremely useful in regard to enabling a quick transition to the critical alpha brain wave pattern, which can remain stable as long as the person is walking and for a period after.
The second part of the book describes the experience one of his patient, who for years was suffering from severe insomnia, not being able to fall asleep because of racing thoughts.
He eventually went to the retreat where he was introduced to a unique compassion meditation (described in the story) which helped him to get rid of his insomnia by completely emptying his emotional baggage, a very heavy load, which he was caring in his soul for half a century.
If you too want to be free and learn how to declutter your mind, this book is for you.
