An internist and clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School fuses Eastern practices with cutting-edge Western medicine to help you connect body and mind to transform your health today and tomorrow.
Fear, anger, and anxiety - the side effects of life's everyday stresses - if left unchecked can lead to a host of debilitating: heart disease, arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, depression, and more. There is good news, though: The key to a healthy life free of these conditions is to activate what Harvard Medical School instructor Dr. Eva Selhub calls the love response: a series of biochemical reactions that lower blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, and adrenaline levels.
"Nice to know there are doctors like her!"
In each of the six guided programs included here, Dr. Selhub combines vivid imagery, breathing techniques, and her own proven processes to masterfully bring listeners to a place where they can let go of tensions and apprehensions and embrace love, balance, and joy. This shift is actually correlated with a change in physiology called the Love Response, in which blood pressure drops, pulse slows, muscles relax, and levels of stress hormones normalize.
"Great meditative listen!"
