dr_andrew_weilJoin Patricia as she interviews Dr. Andrew Weil, MD. Deemed "the father of integrative medicine" by Dr. Mehmet Oz and named one of Time's 100 Most Influential People in 2006, Dr. Andrew Weil has hugely transformed the practices of modern American medicine. In his newest book, SPONTANEOUS HAPPINESS, Dr. Weil draws on carefully researched and science-based facts and his own personal experience to examine the world's fastest-growing epidemic: depression.  Dr. Weil, who has himself struggled with moderate depression through midlife, investigates what people can do outside of traditional medicine to start feeling more content, and how we can sustain this contentment through life's inevitable dark patches.
