They have over six decades of clinical experience and have helped thousands of clients – Super Bowl champs, Olympic medalists, Academy Award winners, and top business executives – they are now making their process available to all.

The doctors have six decades of clinical experience and they offer the readers a clear-cut plan to rid themselves of negativity and rediscover their inherent happiness. They share a four-step program that you can apply at home. Code to Joy outlines a clear effective path to discover and maintain true happiness.

Code to Joy: Review

As I read Code to Joy, I couldn’t help but think back to things that I experienced during my childhood and examine how those experiences shaped me into the person I am today. It opened my eyes to why I believe the way I do as well as why I do what I do.

I especially enjoyed reading the case histories that Drs. Pratt and Lambrou shared, because I understood how things worked and can change when we implement the four-step program in our lives to help us change for the better.

One case I read was about a woman named Lydia. Lydia had brain cancer. Long story short, Lydia was depressed along and had a few other psychological diagnoses.

After Lydia applied the four-step program, her psychological issues were resolved. What makes her story so inspiring is the tumors in her brain went down and she had a new outlook on life.

There are other case histories that I read and they were very eye-opening too.  The doctors make the four-step program simple and easy to follow.

There are even neuromuscular tests, deep breathing exercises, and other things you can do that will help you on your journey to obtaining your natural state of happiness.

I recommend that you read this book, especially if you need help with those demons that you just can’t shake. I didn’t do all the exercises recommended in Code to Joy, but as I read Code to Joy, I couldn’t help but think about my childhood experiences.

I realized that I do have one of the seven limiting believes that the doctors mentioned in their book. I have the tools to get past my feeling of feeling alone. I hope to overcome this with the help of Code to Joy.
