This is a natural, organic, mind/body approach to restoring healthy emotional, behavioral, and cognitive functioning. It is especially effective in dealing with depression, anxiety, sexual dysfunction, creative blocks, and debilitating personality traits that interfere with love, work, and the knowledge to sustain health.
