Yearning to provide for her clients a healing she could not find in mainstream psychiatric practice, one woman psychiatrist travels to India for an ayurvedic cleanse called panchakarma and reconnects to her soul. That story is woven through this prescriptive book in a way that gently invites readers in to transformative ways to heal what they thought could never be healed.
Judith E. Pentz, MD, has practiced as an integrative psychiatrist for twenty-eight years in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she is an assistant professor and attending child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist at the University of New Mexico. In fall 2015, her essay, "Botanicals for Depression," was published in the textbook, Integrative Therapies for Depression: Redefining Models for Assessment, Treatment, and Prevention.
