    Energy Medicine ¿ Ph.D.¿s Perspective

    A gentle dance between two authors and two worlds, Shealy a medical doctor turned Healer and Myss a Journalist turned medical intuitive, they choreograph a literary work which weaves medical science with the mental, emotional and spiritual life of the Being/ patient. In so doing, they demonstrate that causes of illness can go well beyond pathology. Beginning with a list of eight significant stress patterns that are a set up for illness, they march through the ¿Nature of Energy in Creating Health,¿ and through ¿How our acts and attitudes generate disease,¿ linking stress as the common denominator they finish with instructions in how to create health by caring for our wholeness.

    Creation of Health

    Wonderful book with great insight into what is really happening to each of us today. Stress at work & home has lead to many of us having health problems.

    So nice to find a book that shows examples of other people with same or similar issues and how to naturally resolve them.
