A paradigm-shifting guide to peak emotional wellness.

In SPONTANEOUS HAPPINESS, Dr. Andrew Weil redefines the notion of happiness and demonstrates the limitations of the biomedical model of mental health. He presents a vast, scientifically proven array of integrative treatment strategies for low mood and depression, drawing on techniques from Ayurveda, Buddhism, acupuncture, psychotherapy, mindfulness training, and much more. Dr. Weil offers advice on lifestyle, behavior, and dietary changes, and helps readers assess their own emotional well-being and build personalized step-by-step plans to manage their moods. Whether suffering from mild to moderate depression, or simply seeking greater contentment, readers can use Dr. Weil's science-based integrative approach to achieve their goals.

Not only does Dr. Weil have a righteous beard, he's got a lot of good advice about bad moods.

Excellent information. But clearly target audience are those with economic resources above average.

I'm a skeptic and have heard many negative things about Dr. Weils. I did not find any crazy things in this audiobook. It's more about how our physical health can affect our emotional health which in turn affects our physical health. Seems like common sense to me.

Practical, helpful, well-researched advice for improved emotional well-being. I enjoyed hearing his voice (he is the reader as well as the write), and find Dr. Weil to be a calming, positive influence as I drive. This isn't a book that tries to tell you you should be crazy happy every day--and it accepts that ups and downs are part of a normal life--it's more about finding a good mid-point of contentment. It's another example of a book I might have found to be a bit dry if I were reading it, but quite enjoyable, helpful, and relaxing as an audiobook.
