After years of using traditional therapies and modalities in his practice, Dr Glen Hong discovered that sometimes the best way to approach a situation is to turn it on its head, or in other words, to go bottom-up. Most traditional treatments for depression and anxiety focus on the belief that if you change a person's thoughts, it will change their feelings; this will then change their actions, with the ultimate goal of gaining intellectual control over your emotions and never feeling emotional pain again. Nice in theory, but rather unrealistic.
In Upside Down, Dr Hong introduces his groundbreaking work with a new method, the Bottom-up approach. By working with the body's natural responses rather than trying to control them, the Bottom-up approach allows you to break free from reactive, negative thinking and focus on unlocking your dreams and pursuing your heart's desires.
'In doing this, you are using your body as a guide to help you heal, overcome your internal obstacles, and open the door to the life that you always wanted to live. This approach requires you to trust yourself, to see yourself already as a whole and complete person, and ultimately to train your body and mind to understand that all of the answers you have been looking for your whole life are already within you.'
Besides extensive research and years of personal experience, this book is packed with tools to help you on your path, including:
