What leaders in the professional community are saying about
How to Use Herbs, Nutrients and Yoga in Mental Health Care

"A go-to source for information on integrative mental health"
— Mehmet C. Oz, MD, FACS, Professor of Surgery, Vice Chair, Department of Surgery, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

"Congratulations to Drs. Brown, Gerbarg, and Muskin for giving us one of the most clinically useful and practical books on integrating complementary and alternative treatments into our practices! Using wonderfully written and helpful clinical vignettes, these experienced clinicians provide us with a roadmap to understanding the options and challenges that both practitioners and patients need to navigate. For mental health professionals and consumers alike, this is a must-have book!"
—Michelle Riba, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Associate Chair for Integrated Medicine and Psychiatric Services, Department of Psychiatry, University of Michigan 

“Well organized and clearly written, this valuable guide emphasizes the evidence for yoga, herbals, and other natural therapies in the management of common mental and emotional disorders. Drs. Brown, Gerbarg, and Muskin are to be commended for producing a comprehensive yet accessible book for clinicians and consumers seeking to understand and apply basic principles of integrative care in ways that are effective and safe.”
— James Lake MD, Chair, APA Caucus on Complementary, Alternative and Integrative Medicine, and author of Textbook of Integrative Mental Health Care

“If you care about sustaining optimum mental health, memory, and sexual enjoyment, this book is essential reading. Drs. Brown, Gerbarg, and Muskin have written a text that has the potential to revolutionize mainstream mental health care, and provide practitioners and consumers alike the confidence to seek out alternative treatments. This exhaustive guide is the most thorough and well-written resource of its kind. I will use it as a primary reference, not only in working yogically with people suffering from depression and mood disorders, but for my own optimal well-being.” 
— Amy Weintraub, Founder and Director of LifeForce Yoga® Healing Institute and author of Yoga for Depression

“A truly impressive compilation of the latest research in the field of integrative mental health care. Optimal treatment of our patients demands that we challenge our biases about healing and that we educate ourselves about the latest in integrative technologies. This book, with its rich clinical examples and informative treatment guidelines, is an excellent resource for doing just that.”
— Erin L. Olivo, PhD, MPH, Assistant Clinical Professor of Medical Psychology, Director, Integrative Medicine Program, Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons
