"Modern psychiatric, psychological, as well as epigenetics investigations, have shown that traumatic childhood experiences can negatively impact memory and concentration capacity, and the language skills children need for their successful school work. For certain children, this can lead to problems with inappropriate behavior in the classroom, leading to a negative spiral in their organizational and academic performance, and - as a final result - difficulty forming normal human relationships as well as corresponding contacts with animals, such as household pets, farm animals, etc. The current book, "Integrated Health", explains all possible collaborations of our bodily systems and its impact on the trauma-exposed patient - on the physical body, and His/Her mind, emotions, and spirit. As such it points to the value of learning more about the impacts of trauma, and this knowledge can help keep educators from misunderstanding the reasons underlying some children’s difficulties with learning, behavior, and relationships. Finally, it also goes over the new HeartPath techniques for intervention in brief sessions for those who work in integrated primary care clinics. Anyone interested in supporting these patients, and their relatives, should read this book." Olle Johansson, Ph.D., Associate Professor The Experimental Dermatology Unit Department of Neuroscience Karolinska Institute Stockholm, Sweden
“Trauma is like a chameleon, in that it can blend in with the background and then suddenly jump out. It’s like a shape shifter that changes forms and knows no bounds. Sights, smells, touches, sounds and memories can all be evocative of those experiences that turned our world upside down. Although some Trauma is experienced by all of us, some are locked in an invisible prison of habitual self-destructive behavior. Mindfulness and a heart centered practice can help us gain insight and awareness. This book can be a key.” Tommy Casteel Western Regional Director Virginia Department of Social Services
"Integrated Health is a well-researched, clinically-oriented presentation combining Heartpath techniques and scientific treatments along with a holistic approach to help transform the fearful and hopeless hearts of traumatized people into temples of peace and faith, hope and love. A very helpful and insightful read for any health practitioner." David Guldseth, M.D. Family Practice Practitioner
