Always running to catch up! Huffing non-stop to climb up! Over stretched at work. Overloaded with information. Overweight with little or no exercise. Living today takes a heavy toll.

If you want to let go and feel easy, you find practical solutions in a new book “Feeling at Ease with Yourself”, published as hard copy and eBook by Konark Publishers.

This book is written by Rajiv Parti, M.D., who worked as a chief of anaesthesiology at Bakersfield Heart Hospital in California in the US for 30 years.

He also worked as a pain management specialist and later founded the Pain Management Institute of California.

When faced with life-threatening illnesses, Parti discovered alternate holistic approaches such as yoga, meditation and ayurveda, among others, to form 12 principles he expounds in his book.

These principles are based on let-go, mindfulness and revival based on Eastern spirituality to tackle stress, chronic pain and depression.

In active dialogue with the medical professionals at Harvard, Berkeley and UCSD, Parti shares his experiences in the book and on the lecture circuits.

The book will help you to transform your life with 12 holistic, practical principles to overhaul you — your body, mind, heart and spirit.

Laced with real life stories of changed lifestyles with easy to practise 12 principles and exercises to enable you to understand and implement them, this book is based on the personal trials and solutions of a highly qualified doctor.

The language is so simple that it seems that Parti is talking to you personally and the examples he has chosen are also real life cases that he encountered.

In his preface, he explains how he came to write the book.

He always wanted to be a healer. But he became a doctor instead. But fate wanted him to walk his real path and so he became so ill that he gave up his practice when he recovered and delved into spirituality which he claims is his real calling. This is the positive result of his suffering and quest.

After the introduction, each chapter covers one holistic principle that can easily become a part of any health management programme.

The true stories inspire confidence that each principle works and can be implemented with simple lifestyle changes. Finally, the exercises help to implement them for all-round holistic health. In short, feeling at ease with yourself.
