In his memoir Intern, Sandeep Jauhar chronicled the formative years of his residency at a prestigious New York City hospital. Doctored, his harrowing follow-up, observes the crisis of American medicine through the eyes of an attending cardiologist. Hoping for the stability he needs to start a family, Jauhar accepts a position at a massive teaching hospital. With a decade's worth of elite medical training behind him, he is eager to settle down and reap the rewards of countless sleepless nights. Instead, he is confronted with sobering truths. Doctors' morale is getting lower. Cronyism determines referrals, corporate ties distort medical decisions, and unnecessary tests are routinely performed to generate income. Meanwhile, a single patient might see fifteen specialists and still fail to receive a full picture of his actual condition. Jauhar has written an introspective memoir that is also an impassioned plea for reform.--From publisher description.

"Almost a century of research has shown that the most conscientious individuals enjoy longer and healthier lives. The crucial feature of conscientiousness is being organized and responsible, which are the traits that contribute most to society in general. Unfortunately, some individuals fail to achieve their greatest potential because they did not establish the nurturing, bonding system that is most essential for health, happiness, and success. In this book, you will find the tools to optimize your self-esteem, health, and longevity.In the 1960s, the use of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) took acupuncture to a new level, revolutionizing pain management. Now the most important acupuncture advancement in 4,000 years is the activation of the hormone oxytocin without needles or electrical stimulation. By using essential oils on acupuncture points, you will create the 'bliss' that enables you to fulfill your potential for conscientious living. Based on research of the past two decades, it is now possible for you to activate five specific acupuncture circuits. Using this method, you will: restore dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), the most important health-enhancing hormone; boost your calcitonin, the essential thyroid hormone for maintaining bone strength and reducing pain; reduce free radicals, the scavengers that essentially wear out or 'rust' your body; balance your aldosterone, the adrenal hormone responsible for water and potassium health; activate your crucial bonding, nurturing hormone--oxytocin--the ultimate bliss hormone. Using specific blends of natural essential oils, you can do your own transcutaneous acupuncture--with no needles and in only 30 seconds. This is a powerful path to conscientious living that enables you to live a longer, healthier, and happier life--helping yourself, and, as a result, helping others"-- Provided by publisher.
