[A] cogent guide a plan to help individuals recognize triggers, plan ways to overcome them, and reestablish emotional and physical equilibrium... the authors' wide scope and reassuring tone stand out: 'The unfortunate truth is this: We have been depriving ourselves of natural remedies that are readily available. While they're not necessarily easy to make habitual, they are simple to initiate.' These restorative tactics are great self-care starting points. --Publishers Weekly"A powerful, comprehensive, and practical guide to cultivating resilience in the face of our contemporary global challenges to planetary and public health, Emotional Inflammation offers us the personal tools to maintain deep clarity and equilibrium while engaging in the important work of serving the world. Wise and science-based, our guides offer each of us a timely tool kit for strengthening our minds to create more well-being inside and out. Bravo!" --Daniel J. Siegel, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence "This book is a riveting read. It not only empowers by putting a name to the anxiety so many of us feel these days, but it also provides real, practical solutions. I found myself nodding in agreement on almost every page." --Celeste Headlee, journalist and author of Do Nothing and We Need to Talk "Finally, there's a name and a remedy for the anxious way so many people are feeling: emotional inflammation. The book empowers readers to take control of their lifestyle habits and quench the flames. Everyone needs this information in these stressful times." --Mallika Chopra, author of Just Breathe and Just Feel "Emotional Inflammation sees our collective stressors and shows us how to navigate them, keeping us connected yet no longer overburdened. The authors deftly translate the science and physiology of emotional inflammation into why we feel what we do, while putting us back in the driver's seat of our senses." --Holly Phillips, MD, former medical reporter for CBS News
