Publisher's Summary

Fear, anger, and anxiety - the side effects of life's everyday stresses - if left unchecked can lead to a host of debilitating: heart disease, arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, depression, and more. There is good news, though: The key to a healthy life free of these conditions is to activate what Harvard Medical School instructor Dr. Eva Selhub calls the love response: a series of biochemical reactions that lower blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, and adrenaline levels, stimulating physical healing and reinstating balance and well-being. The Love Response is the result of Dr. Selhub's years of research and clinical practice on how to reverse the destructive physical effects of fear and stress, and banish emotional wounds from the past. Through a simple-to-use plan of awareness, breathing, visualization, and verbal command exercises, The Love Response reprograms your brain and changes your biochemistry from negative to positive, putting you on a path to long-term wellness and happiness. The Love Response is structured around the three essential building blocks of mental health:
Social love - deep, intimate relationships including family, friends, and pets

Self-love - how to nurture yourself, often the hardest step

Spiritual love - contributing to the world beyond your own needsThe Love Response provides all the tools you need to transform anger into compassion, release your fears, overcome shame, embrace self-acceptance, connect through empathy, and, ultimately, strengthen your natural ability to heal.

Nice to know there are doctors like her!

Good book. The author was trained in western medicine and she discusses her use of western medicine in combination with types of eastern medicine and visualization practices. She discusses some of the patients she has helped and gives her listeners insight on how to alleviate pain in their own lives. If you like this book, she also has another book on audible which is primarily meditative visualizations. She has a calming voice.

Truly dreadful

What disappointed you about The Love Response?

Mindless drivel. "If you tell yourself you are happy, you will be happy" An utter waste of time and energy.

What didn’t you like about Eva M. Selhub, M.D.’s performance?

If you aren't already depressed, listening to the author's voice will have you looking for a noose.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Bitter that I wasted a credit on this garbage

Any additional comments?

As if all that wasn't bad enough, her grammar is atrocious. Don't these people have editors?
