First responses to Feel Better Fast:
“When you’re sick, your frame of mind plays a key role in your return to health. In this fascinating book (and a great read), Dr. Foster describes the many ways to speed your recovery — ranging from humor to relaxation.”

“This is one of the best written books that I have seen. Original, thorough, insightful and enormously helpful. Speaks to all that patients can do to address those non-medical issues that are often more debilitating than the illness itself. What most impressed me was the conversational tone of the writing. One had the impression that the author was present in the room speaking truths that maybe the patient hadn’t yet been able to speak — even to her or himself. The author’s intimate voice was like having a coach there, to help you through the darkest moments, to point out the obstacles, to encourage taking some risks and to cheer you on when you were about to take an emotional dip on the roller coaster of illness. This warm and knowing voice created a sense of hopefulness that clearly came out of the author’s own experience as a patient, and his years of listening to others on their illness journeys in his role as psychotherapist. I know I will give this book to my own patients in need of encouragement and hope at any point in the illness or recovery process.”

“When illness strikes many people find our current health system disappointing and frustrating. Emotions run high, stress increases symptoms, and the worlds of conventional and alternative medicine still debate rather than integrate. Dr. Charles Foster has provided a comprehensive answer to this crisis in his innovative new book. His emphasis on the need for personal medicine as a means of viewing individuals as emotional, spiritual, and physiological beings is essential to a balanced, healthy life. Dr. Foster’s book is filled with practical solutions that allow the reader to master his or her emotional life in the face of illness. I expect his book will provide the missing ingredient to complete recovery for many. Highly recommended.”
