Dear Dr. Epstein: I just finished listening to your video in Youtube titled. Heart Health: Using Your Mind to Help Heal Your Heart, and can say that I now know I found my healing: the kind of work you do.Everything you said resonated with me fully and I could clearly see the whole picture of how I got to where I am with my health... The various bodily ailment issues I have, with my 'heart' leading the way, is due to the same ONE CAUSE. I cannot express the joy of the sense of "relief" I already got with this awareness.
