Two Words That Can Change Your Life

February 21, 2016

In this thought provoking TEDx talk, Dr. Tanmeet Sethi (faculty member of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine) shares how the overlooked value of thankfulness can have surprising health and medical benefits.

Tanmeet Sethi, M.D. is an integrative physician, teacher, writer and mother. She is passionate about Real Medicine, not the kind that comes out of a bottle but the kind that comes from caring for ourselves through Real Food and Real Mind-Body Medicine. She has dedicated her career to teaching physicians and patients these ideals. She also teaches food as medicine classes in the community and is starting a new culinary medicine curriculum for resident physicians.
