    LOS ANGELES, CA, January 01, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Drs. Richard P. Brown, Patricia L. Gerbarg, and Philip R. Muskin, internationally renowned holistic mental health experts and pioneers of CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine), are the authors of a highly praised new reference book for healthcare professionals and the public, How To Use Herbs, Nutrients, and Yoga in Mental Health Care (WW Norton, 2009, ISBN 978-0-393-70525-6, hardcover, 6 x 9, 441 pages, US $34.95). Their book will be released January 5, 2009 on Internet bookseller sites (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and others), and in U.S. bookstores.

Wellness colleagues laud the Brown, Gerbarg, Muskin book for offering safe and innovative solutions for ADD/ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, stress, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, fibromyalgia, PMS, menopause, sexual dysfunction, the aging brain, substance abuse and more. "If you are a reader with mental and emotional needs going unmet by current drug therapy, you will unquestionably find the fountain of wisdom in this book.... This is a powerful book, one that has the potential to blow a gaping hole in the current wall of psychiatric ignorance of natural therapies," writes Chris Kilham, Medicine Hunter, University of Amherst, Massachusetts. It's "a go-to source for information on integrative mental health," adds Mehmet C. Oz, MD, FACS, Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons.

The authors, clinically experienced psychiatrists and medical school professors at Columbia University (Brown, Muskin) and New York Medical College (Gerbarg), spent years committed to research on herbs, nutrients, yoga and other healing modalities which could successfully alleviate a myriad of debilitating conditions.

"We wrote the book for our patients and others who were asking for alternative approaches and relief from medication side effects," states co-author Gerbarg. The solutions the book shares are part of a new medical paradigm, integrating the best of standard and complementary treatments for long-term brain health, mental clarity, mental focus, memory, and well-being. The substantial but digestible text is peppered with "clinical pearls" and case vignettes.

The authors provide assistance to victims of mass disasters such as the 9/11 community and military personnel, as well as those suffering from medical and emotional illnesses. In addition to his work as a psychiatric consultant and lecturer, Dr. Brown teaches breath-body-mind practices derived from yoga, Qi Gong, meditation, and coherent breathing. Drs. Brown and Gerbarg provide health information and resources at Have A Healthy
