May The Healing Begin

As indicated in the book, I found that there are three components that make up a combined approach to overcoming low self-esteem, stress, anxiety and depression in people. They include (1) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); (2) practical spirituality; and (3) mindfulness meditation. All three are drug-free. Of these, clinical trials conducted over the past 50 years have focused primarily (although not exclusively) on CBT and found it to be just as effective as drug therapy when provided by experienced psychotherapists in treating moderate to severe depression. Based on my own research, I believe these components when combined together represent the most potent remedy available today for the problems we are talking about.
People may find one or another of these components easier to understand, internalize and apply. Or they may want to take the best parts from all three and combine them into something that works for them. It’s like a menu in a restaurant and from it you can order the appetizer, and feast on that; the entrée, and feast on that; or the dessert, and feast on that. Alternatively, if you are very, very hungry, you can enjoy 
the "full course" meal!
