June 18, 2021

It's a curious and intriguing invitation to seek knowledge that Dr. Mona Balogh, MD makes in her latest book: How to Stay Out of My Emergency Room. Don't judge a book by it's cover or it may seem that her writing may be a collection of preventative medical advice. However, Dr. Balogh takes the reader on a journey inward to understand themselves, their mind, and their behavior. Even further, Dr. Balogh emphasizes many exercise of Eastern Origin that one can do to work on their attitude, insight, and behaviors in their lives. Dr. Mona Balogh, MD goes beyond prevention and tips and goes right for the core of a patient's motivations, their attitudes, and their beliefs. If patients can get some understanding of how their behaviors are affecting their physical condition, then surely than can go further and work on balancing their mind as well. The subtitle of How to Stay Out of My Emergency Room is a bit more telling: Master Your Health and Find Joy in Life by Balancing the Power of Your Mind, Your Body, and Your Higher Self.

In her interview with Paul Krauss MA LPC of The Intentional Clinician podcast, Dr. Mona Balogh outlines her philosophy, tells stories of her experience as an Emergency Room Doctor, and even leads the listeners through a useful exercise to access your higher self.
