Dr. Andrew Newberg, a physician at Thomas Jefferson University's Institute of Integrative Health and Dr. Daniel Monti are co-authors of the new book Brain Weaver: Creating the Fabric for a Healthy Mind Through Integrative Medicine.
This engaging book shines a light on the connection between brain health and diet, the need to take advantage of weaknesses and strengths in each individual, and the value of mind-body practices.
Dr. Newberg says, "The first thing that we always talk to our patients about is that we really function as human beings. We have four different dimensions. We have a biological dimension, a psychological dimension, a social dimension, and a spiritual dimension."
"When we talk about brain health, while the brain is arguably more in our biology domain, we really have to understand brain health in a very integrative way and take all of these different dimensions of who we are as individuals into account if we are going to keep our brain as healthy as possible."
