Editorial Reviews

"Beyond the Label delivers much more than the psychobabble often found in books on mental health. Dr. Chris has created an actual blueprint for emotional healing culminated from personal anecdotal and clinical experience that reaches beyond the stigma of emotional health. Dr. Chris looks not only to discovering the root cause of mental illness and suffering, but offers practical navigation towards healing and wholeness. Finally, a truly Naturopathic perspective on mental health."–Razi Berry, Publisher, Naturopathic Doctor News & Review and Founder NaturalPath
