In this six-part set, doctors Schulz and Northrup use case studies to discuss how illnesses can be seen as a way in which the body is trying to deliver critical intuitive information to consciousness. They believe that although each person is born with certain genetic predispositions toward mental and physical characteristics, no one is doomed to suffer from certain illnesses. While some illness may be inevitable, these doctors feel that if one does not pay attention to the smaller ills, and the messages they are trying to deliver, they may manifest as progressively serious disorders. The authors discuss important issues in an informal style that, while knowledgeable, can be extremely frustrating for the listener. Often they lose the thread of what they are saying, interrupt and argue each other's points, focus on side issues, and deliver incomplete information. People who are already familiar with the mind/body continuum concept and Northrup and Schulz's other works will probably enjoy and learn from these tapes; however, for the price and for the beginner these are not recommended. Pick up some of Northrup's other audiotapes (e.g., Women's Bodies, Women's Choices) or Caroline Myss's Why People Don't Heal and How They Can, instead. Kathleen A. Sullivan, Phoenix P.L.
