control our mind, rather to mentor our mind, give it the guidance it needs to help detox the body, mind and soul.

This gives much more depth to the lessons held within the pages, the words make more sense and they help us get clarity on what we need to do, or which direction to take.
In the chapter” How can you tell it is time to see a doctor”, the Author talks about various circumstances and how people react to each of them… With a little summary at the end of every chapter, there are little points given that will help make ones life better, giving them better health , both physical and mental…
There are interesting quotes scattered through the book, take a minute to read them, think about them and see what they really mean….
