Elson Haas, MD, presents his philosophy on politics, war and peace in Part II of “From Politics, Medicine, War To Integrity, Healing, And Peace.” The key is that our individual rights do not impinge on or cause harm to others.

Jacob E. Teitelbaum's, MD, article “A Practical Guide To Treating Stress And Anxiety,” focuses on two areas of healing in the Comprehensive Medicine approach, mindbody and biochemical aspects when addressing anxiety and stress.
