This is how you find your muse.

This is a story of how one doctor mom did everything “right” to enjoy a triumphant career as a family physician, but realized that grit and diligent hard work do not protect you against the heartache of burnout.

It’s a story about bravely walking away from a stable, profitable career into a blank canvas of the unknown in order to live a fully authentic and awake life.

This is not a self-help book or a how-to book, but you might recognize some self and help in these pages. Right Brain Rescue is a literary “creativity prescription” that will inspire us to think differently about how we use our energy, explore our values, and care for our bodies and minds so we can become the most sparkly version of ourselves.

"Right Brain Rescue" is truly magical, in that it takes you on a journey to look deeper into yourself and your life. She especially speaks to all of the physicians out there; the vivid images she paints from the first day of cadaver labs in medical school to the spot on description of the "on-call pagers" had me nodding my head in agreement and marveling that someone had managed to describe exactly what was going through MY head!!

Dr. Salyer is one of the brightest, most creative and most relevant voices in healthcare today. In Right Brain Rescue, Lara Salyer articulates very accurately the cries for help we hear consistently from practitioners across the spectrum of healthcare disciplines. Those cries are of overwhelm, frustration and often helplessness in the face of a healthcare environment that has grown increasingly complex.

Dr. Salyer has done a magnificent service to the healing of our health care system. Her book is a delight to read, an inspiration to follow and an important message to bring creativity back into our lives. Her whimsical words and thought-provoking metaphors left a warm place in my heart. She spoke straight to my heart as a physician. Her letter to Hippocrates was stunning and oh so real to my own experiences as a woman in medicine. I highly recommended this book to everyone who cares about their own health and that of their family and friends. Give it to everyone on your Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever reason you have for giving "the gift to please." She is a powerful presence for the Functional Medicine approach to healing. Bless you, Dr. Salyer

I didn't want it to be over! I found myself reading slower toward the end as I didn't want it to be over. Reads like fiction, on par with my favorite non-fiction story tellers, Cheryl Strayed and Nadia Bolz-Weber. As non-medical pro I didn't expect this book to hit me so personally. Engineer burn out seems like an eerie parallel. Guess its time to start coloring outside the lines!

I was crying as I read the epilogue & finished this book within hours. I absolutely could not stop. The stories are real & relatable. I found myself laughing and nodding (and I DON’T work in health care.) Burnout is real. Lara- I am glad (and so thankful) you were able to rescue yourself & are helping others. This book is a fantastic blue print of your journey. I hope many others follow your lead to avoid this burnout.

You don't have to be a doctor to enjoy this book and reap the benefits of Lara Salyer's journey. She's smart, sassy, fun, caring and joyously honest in the telling of her story. It's a quick read, in part due to her ability to keep you entertained as she teaches you about the signs of burnout and the treatment for it. If you've ever felt stagnant in your work, you need to read this book! I promise, you will find a new perspective and path that was right in front of you all along.
