More about my chapter in this book
In the fast paced times we’re living in having resilience to daily stressors is more important than ever. Malnourished people though have much less resilience and this is where my work comes in. As a medical doctor I use a practical approach to deal with chronic diseases especially when it relates to mood and emotions! In Diamonds in the dust I share my 'anxiety/stress/mood' protocol which I've used successfully in numerous patients. Enjoy!
