In his latest book, Dr. Habib Sadeghi provides a compassionately-based, scientifically sound approach to the missing ingredient in the weight loss recipe: self-love. You’ll learn that real self-love is far more than an ethereal concept. It’s a tangible, evolutionary force that will create changes in your life that can only be described as miraculous. Did you know that the electromagnetic power of the heart is 5,000 times stronger than that of the brain? That’s the power of your love and you’ll learn how to harness its healing energy by taking one simple step.

You’ll discover the exciting, emerging science of epigenetics and that fat is not all in the family. You’ve never been doomed by your genes and have far more control over your weight than you ever realized. Most importantly, this program was created from compassion and experience by someone who has “been there”. You’ll be amazed and inspired as Dr. Sadeghi shares how this very program created a profound healing in his own life. So prepare yourself for a revelation that combines the latest science with spiritual nutrition for a quantum weight loss program that serves up a satisfying portion of real soul food. Take the journey to discover where the answers have been all along…within.

Proceeds from WITHIN will be donated to Roots of Empathy, University of Santa Monica and Healing Institute of Beings.

Read from the Book

Foreword When you get to a certain point in life, you begin to realize there are larger forces at work in the universe, or at least you suspect there might be.  Maybe things don’t happen randomly.  Maybe everything does have a purpose.  Maybe my role in this life isn’t what it appears to be and just maybe; I’m more powerful than I ever allowed myself to believe. Then, you meet someone who’s living from this awareness and it changes everything.   That’s how I felt when I met Dr. Habib Sadeghi.  His expertise in integrative medicine is what brings patients to him from all over the world, but it’s really his understanding of how the mind, body and spirit are connected that creates dramatic changes in people’s lives; mine included.  He understands what much of modern medicine is only now beginning to explore.  Our thoughts and emotions have far more influence on our health than we’ve ever imagined.  In fact, it’s so significant that you might think of our bodies as just the physical printouts of what’s already going on in our hearts.  Dr. Sadeghi knows that regardless of the challenges someone might be facing, healing has to start at a deeper level for it to be complete and lasting.   Since 2008, I’ve been a part of the Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) organization that raises funding for cancer research.  Every other year, the program holds a telethon to raise money for grant awards that will go to emerging research projects around the world.  Celebrities, musicians, professional athletes and world-renowned cancer researchers take part in the event to bring awareness to the issue and provide updates on finding a cure.  Last year, we raised $81 million for a total of $137 million since the SU2C movement began.    In 2012, I wanted to bring a new perspective to the SU2C event.  I wanted to give a voice to the emerging science of how the mind and body communicate with each other in working to produce our state of health.  For me, that voice is Dr. Sadeghi.  He knows more about the mind/body balance than anyone I know.  It’s not just because he’s an international expert on integrative medicine.  It’s because he has the kind of experience that can’t be taught.  He’s a doctor who’s also been a patient.  He’s been to the edge of what looked like an insurmountable situation and overcame it.  He didn’t just survive.  He thrives by applying the life principles you’ll read in this book.  Yes, he really does practice what he preaches.      I truly believe that the best teacher anyone can have is someone who’s “been there” and Dr. Sadeghi has been there…and back.  That’s why last year, he became one of the first osteopathic physicians to ever participate in SU2C, providing his life-changing wisdom alongside researchers and Nobel Laureates from around the world.    I like to think of Dr. Sadeghi’s approach to healing as active compassion.  He has a way of intuitively connecting with people that makes them feel instantly understood, safe and at ease.  He also gives them the tools they need to affect real change in their lives.  That’s more than just encouraging.  It’s empowering.  Isn’t that what we all want during the times we feel vulnerable?  We want our power back.      It’s my privilege to call Dr. Sadeghi my friend.  He’s brought clarity to my life in ways that only someone with an old soul truly can.  I guess that’s why some people actually do call him the Old Soul Doctor.  As you read these pages, I’ve no doubt that his insights will touch you in very much the same way.  While the focus of Within might be on weight loss, please remember that the principles it teaches can be applied to any challenge you’re facing.  Whether you want to lose weight, improve your health, repair your relationships or something else, the cause of how we’re creating our personal world is always found Within.  That’s where you’ll find the answer, too.   Gwyneth Paltrow Los Angeles 2013

Editorial Reviews

"At last, the time has come where sound medical practice includes the well-being of the patient and not merely the alleviation of his or her symptoms. And I am not aware of anyone who is more at the forefront of this initiative than Habib Sadeghi. I personally know him well and am certain that he is one of the few who venture the possibility that Love and weight release are directly related—much less how to utilize this information in service to health. Thank you Habib.” -H. Ronald Hulnick, Ph.D., President, University of Santa Monica and co-author of Loyalty to Your Soul: The Heart of Spiritual Psychology   "Dr. Sadeghi reminds us that the key to unlock the door of healing has always been right in our hands.  His heartfelt words and lessons guide us to the place where what we've been searching for all along has been hiding in plain sight, Within."    -Sara Bordo, film producer and author of, Woman Rising   “Dr. Habib Sadeghi presents a gentle yet deeply powerful methodology for understanding the impact our emotions and thoughts have on our bodies. He puts healing within reach of those who struggle with weight issues and anyone else on the journey of seeking a more fulfilling life experience. WiTHIN is a clarion to stop, look, and listen to our authentic selves by providing us with achievable strategies to overcome past traumas which may negatively impact our health and happiness.  Through bravely sharing his own personal healing journey, Dr. Sadeghi’s wisdom, warmth and acceptance reach through the pages in a reassuring yet straight-shooting approach that motivates and inspires.” -Mary Gordon   "I'm writing this from a 6-month sabbatical in Italy, wearing my 'skinny' clothes!  That's something I could never have done had I not learned the simple but powerful secret of self-love from Dr. Sadeghi.  His empowering approach is a revelation that will open your eyes to the fact that you are not broken.  You are whole right now.  Nothing needs to be 'fixed'.  You just need to remember who you really are and Dr. Sadeghi gives you the road map to rise to your own magnificence." -Renee Croce        "Dr. Sadeghi clearly captures the multidimensional levels of weight-related health issues in Within.  His life experience in medicine, teaching, and his own healing journey from cancer back to perfect health illuminates a path for others to follow.  His expertise and understanding provide real solutions for problems that affect millions." -Alesandra Rain, Author and prescription drug expert     "Dr. Sadeghi possesses an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and every page of Within overflows with the depth of his experience.  It's a rare and savory gift that goes well beyond why we eat and explores the deeper questions of why we're on the planet.  If you're hungry for a terrific book, better health or a better life, I can't recommend Within highly enough." - Richard Martini, author of Flipside: A Tourist’s Guide on How to Navigate the Afterlife    "Dr. Sadeghi reaches through the pages and speaks to your soul in the only way a person can who has 'been there'.  The depth of his compassion and power of his personal journey will redefine everything you ever thought was possible." -Katherine Woodward Thomas, author of Calling in "The One": 7 Weeks to Attract the Love of Your Life   "No one on Earth understands the heart/mind/body connection better than Dr. Sadeghi.  I know from my own personal experience that where others fail to make a difference in your heath, Dr. Sadeghi succeeds.  He is a truly a life changer." -Brad Falchuk, Co-creator & Executive Producer (Glee, American Horror Story) “Dr. Sadeghi’s influence on my life has far exceeded physical healing.  He has elevated my consciousness, awareness and understanding of what it means to be a responsible citizen of the planet. In a rapidly changing world, his sound and practical wisdom is a godsend.” -Matt Bohmer, Actor   "Dr. Sadeghi is more than a physician.  He is a modern day alchemist.   He has empowered my entire family on a path to wellness through his integrative and conscious practice.  As a result, he has not only improved our health; he has improved our lives." -Stacy Sher, Film Producer   "From “Wait Loss” to Weight loss, Dr. Sadeghi identifies and heals the obstacles that are keeping you from the health accomplishments you desire. YOU can become the star performer in an amazing life as Dr. Sadeghi provides the tools to activate change on many levels.  You’ll be able to choose and accomplish goals you never thought possible and celebrate every step." -Tracy Anderson, Personal Trainer, Fitness Expert & Author   “Within is a book that takes Universal Laws and integrates them into understandable bits of wisdom. Dr. Sadeghi’s experience, knowledge, stories and research shows how these Laws impact the energy of the Spirit, Body and Mind.  It is a groundbreaking book written from the vast experience of a physician’s lens and, as a result the reader is able to create quantum healing energy in their lives. It takes difficult to understand Universal Laws and principles and helps to clarify for the reader a step by step process from knowledge to understanding to the energy of quantum healing.
