<div><b>One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care </b></div> <div><br /></div> <div>Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In <i>Deep Medicine</i>, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, <i>Deep Medicine</i> shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.</div>

If you’ve been struggling with neck pain and tension; if you feel tightness when you turn your head; if your neck gets stiff while you work and you can see how neck pain negatively affects your work and lifestyle… If you are tired of ignoring your pain…If you have tried taking painkillers, going to physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors... then you need this book as it will open your eyes to a completely new paradigm of looking at and treating neck pain and tension. <br /> <br /> Recent scientific research shows that your neck pain is a symptom of a much greater and deeper problem, a problem which is much harder to see (that’s the bad news), but a lot easier to fix (that’s the good news). Would you like to learn what this problem is?<br /> <br /> This is what you will discover in the book, and for now, allow me to offer you a glimpse of what you will learn.<br /> <br /> Neck pain is a result of major systems of your body malfunctioning.

Moreover, you will have a higher risk of getting sick with more serious medical conditions caused by dysfunctions in your major bodily systems. <br /> <br />In the second case, if you choose to treat the dysfunctional systems, you will be much more successful in resolving your neck pain and tension, and you will decrease the risk of getting sick with more serious disorders. So, this is not just another exercise book on neck pain. This book will become the starting point for your journey to transform your life.<br /><br /> It will open your eyes to methods that melt away your stress, pain, and tension.

Trying to find a more effective way to treat your Spasmodic Dysphonia?<br /> <br />Have you been trying everything you can to fix your vocal spasms but nothing is working?
