  • Anniston-Oxford, AL (1888PressRelease) May 09, 2011 - Author Saundra Dalton-Smith, a practicing physician, shows those affected by trauma and emotional pain how to break free from fear, insecurity, and other lies into a life of health and balance in Set Free to Live Free (ISBN: 978-0-8007-1993-7, May 2011, $12.99). Smith shares with readers how one patient reshaped her practice and approach to medicine. One day, a patient entered her office, and as Smith listened, she recognized she would need to work closely with this patient if she was to get better. She could not simply offer the latest medications, but would instead need to walk with the patient and help her become free from the mental lies that had impacted her physical health. Readers will journey with this patient and others as Smith shares how their triumphs became her motivation to see others free.

    For five years Smith worked with the National Health Service Corp as a first-responder on the frontlines of the nation's health crisis treating the underserved population of Alabama. Her experiences working with people traumatized by life events has become more valuable in recent weeks after the severe storms that have severely affected the surrounding Alabama communities of Tuscaloosa, Cullman and Ohatchee. "The affect of these tornadoes is much greater than the property loss and destruction that has been seen nationally. Those affected by these events must be retrieved not only from the physical debris many were trapped in but also from the mental debris that they will face from this point on."
