About the Author
Don Colbert, M.D., a board-certified family practitioner since 1984, is the author of such bestsellers as What Would Jesus Eat?, Toxic Relief, Walking in Divine Health, and the Bible Cure Booklet Series. Dr. Colbert has developed his own vitamin line, Divine Health Nutritional Products, and hosts the national talk show, Your Health Matters, with his wife Mary. He regularly speaks at national seminars. He makes his home in central Florida.
It's refreshing when a physician provides research to back up claims in the sometimes ephemeral field of the mind-body connection. Dr. Colbert examines humans and the multitude of illnesses that stem from wrong thought and lifestyle with a near-religious fervor that doesn't detract from the value of this audiobook. The weaving of spiritual knowledge with scientific savvy make this especially palatable. Greg Wheatley is a straightforward narrator who doesn't stumble over medical terms or the author's occasional overzealousness. In general, DEADLY EMOTIONS is an eye-opening guide to our responsibility for many of the illnesses we experience and to the possibility of creating a healthier emotional state.

Stress and the emotions that cause stress are indeed at the root of many, if not most, of our diseases. It is a fact that nearly 90% of diseases that afflict humans are self-induced. It is amazing, given what we do to ourselves and how we treat our bodies, that we survive as long as we do. One doesn't have to be a Christian to understand the impact stress has. The Church of Scientology has available for any of us a self-administered test to evaluate the emotional state of anyone. There are workbooks, videos, self-help programs, and even medical devices to lower blood pressure increased due to stress. We have The National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder created by the Department of Veterans Affairs in 1989. Numerous programs are designed to help us manage stress, anger, depression, anxiety, fear, guilt, shame, resentment and bitterness. The diseases that are induced or influenced by our emotions are many. The psychological and emotional pressures affecting us are common to all of us. It is when these pressures overwhelm our coping measures that they adversely affect us physically. Still, we as a population are willing to drug ourselves with anything a physician is willing to prescribe.Read more ›
One major error in the book, however, is the Key to Scoring the Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale on p. 229. which contains the wrong rating numbers. This needs to be corrected in future editions.
