The Revolutionary New Treatment for
Depression and Anxiety

Numerous recent surveys indicate that depression and anxiety have doubled or tripled since the corona pandemic. In fact, according to the CDC, more than 40 percent of the population are experiencing “adverse mental conditions . . . associated with . . . Covid-19.” Top that with the realities of the pandemic—including fear of death, separation from loved ones, loss of employment, and intense political battles that trigger even more emotional vulnerability and despair. Now, world-renowned psychiatrist, Dr. David D. Burns, brings us a radical new approach to healing in his No. 1 Amazon bestselling book, Feeling Great: The Revolutionary New Treatment for Depression and Anxiety (PESI, Inc., ISBN: 9781683732884; $26.99, Hardcover).

Feeling Great emerged from 40 years of research and more than 40,000 hours treating individuals with severe depression and anxiety. This research revealed that negative feelings do not result in what’s WRONG WITH YOU—like a chemical imbalance in your brain or a “mental disorder”—but from what‘s RIGHT WITH YOU. And the moment you realize this, recovery will be just a stone’s throw away.

Dr. Burns’ Feeling Good and Feeling Good Handbook have sold more than 5 million copies and have made cognitive therapy the most popular and most extensively researched form of therapy in the world. More than 50 percent of depressed people who read Feeling Good recover of improve dramatically in four weeks with no other treatment. The techniques in Feeling Great are even more powerful.

Nothing short of amazing! Dr. David Burns is an absolute genius, and with his work and this book, he has advanced psychotherapy by lightyears. He is arguably one of the best therapists in the world, and using this book is as close to having personal therapy with Dr. Burns as one can possibly get; it’s like having him right there in the room with you. This book actually achieves the ambitious goal of making extremely powerful and effective therapy available, accessible and usable to the general public more than any resource I’ve seen. Feeling Great provides the reader with a powerful and effective framework for rapidly, effectively and dramatically alleviating depression and anxiety. It is filled with practical tools and techniques and will help anyone suffering from depression or anxiety, whether used by an individual seeking relief, or in conjunction with a therapist. Given the amazing results I’ve personally had using Dr. Burns TEAM framework, both in terms of my own anxiety and depression, as well as with my patients, I will be recommending this book to anyone who suffers from these conditions. Rapid, effective, drug-free treatment has never been so accessible as it is now in Feeling Great. This was the first time I’ve ever cried tears of joy while reading a book!

An interview with Jason Elliot:

Q) Has someone been instrumental in inspiring you as a writer?
A) Certain lyricists from bands that I’ve looked up to definitely have played a part in inspiring my writing. The Color Morale & Hotel Books are two main ones that I really admire as far as writing goes.

Q) Do you have plans for “the next book”?
A) I do actually, as soon as I pieced together this first book I already went ahead and starting writing material for the next one. Same concept, some different topics this time around though.

Q) When did you realize you wanted to write?
A) I can remember as far back as being in middle school and jotting down lyric or poem ideas in my notebooks. I don’t know exactly what onset my sudden desire to write, but the spark has definitely been there since I was young.

Q) Tell me about your interests and passions.
A) Aside from writing, I play guitar in a band called Call It Home. That’s my biggest passion and priority in life on top of everything. I also love unwinding with a cold beer and a good horror movie in my spare time. I’m fascinated with aliens and conspiracy theories… I’ll talk your ear off for hours talking about it, and I have an undying love for reptiles and tarantulas.

Career Burnout

Career Burnout: The Root Cause is Loss of Purpose

Physician and mindful living expert Romila “Dr. Romie” Mushtaq, MD has a unique perspective to discuss career burnout; not only is she a neurologist specializing in mind-body medicine, but she also used the mindfulness-based techniques she teaches to heal herself from career burnout as a physician.

Career burnout is characterized clinically by loss of passion, physical and emotional exhaustion, cynicism and detachment, and feelings of ineffectiveness and lack of accomplishment.

“Career burnout can lead to stress-related illnesses such as insomnia, anxiety, and ulcers. The Center for Disease Control estimates that 80 percent of doctor’s office visits are due to stress-related illnesses,” Dr. Romie notes.

In her recent TEDx talk in Fargo, N.D., “The Powerful Secret of Your Breath,” Dr. Romie discusses the root cause of career burnout.

“Career burnout arises when our external world is not in alignment with our internal soul compass.  The way we find our life purpose is being aligned with our internal soul compass; this is the place within us where all the answers reside – some call it your intuition, your gut instinct, or your internal wisdom.”

Mindfulness, being fully present in the current moment, is as simple as one thing: breathing, Dr. Romie says.

“Being stuck in the past can lead to depression and a feeling of hopelessness.  And when we lose hope we cannot heal. When we are worried about the future, we fuel anxiety. Only in the present moment are we truly connected to our dreams and life purpose.”

Dr. Romie combines her expertise and professional experiences in neurology, mind-body medicine and meditation to help individual and corporate clients contend with their stress-infused lives. She teaches how to take mindfulness from the meditation mat into a mindful way of living – and breathing – to prevent or to heal from career burnout. She illuminates the medicine behind the mindfulness and how to connect to life purpose in her TEDx talk: “The Powerful Secret of Your Breath” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slKAFdJ8ZHY).

Dr. Romie completed her medical training and education at the Medical University of South Carolina, The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and The University of Michigan.  She previously served as an assistant professor at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
