Even as healthcare technology makes great strides, studies show that the attitude of a person suffering from chronic illness may hold the most sway over the healing process. This book shows that the first step in adopting a positive attitude toward health lies in dismissing harmful myths. "I must forgive before I can heal." "I am sick because God is punishing me."

Overview

Even as healthcare technology makes great strides, studies show that the attitude of a person suffering from chronic illness may hold the most sway over the healing process. This book shows that the first step in adopting a positive attitude toward health lies in dismissing harmful myths. "I must forgive before I can heal." "I am sick because God is punishing me." "If it doesn't feel good, it must be an effective medicine." These are outdated concepts that can slow healing — or make an illness worse. Donald Epstein divides these myths into four categories: social, biomedical, religious/spiritual, and New Age. He discusses each myth individually — from "healing is expensive" to "every condition can be traced to a demonstrable physical cause" — and offers replacement myths, or "Healing Magic," to be both meditated upon and declared out loud by the reader in order to create an opportunity for healing. Healing Myths, Healing Magic examines the deeply ingrained stories, or myths we commonly hold about how our bodies heal, myths that can actually inhibit healing. For example, I must forgive in order to heal, healing requires a trained professional or a highly educated specialist or a person may be too far gone to heal. In this breakthrough book, Dr. Epstein divides the healing myths into four categories: Social, Biomedical, Religious & New Age. He exposes each myth individually, then suggests an alternative statement or healing magic to help us reclaim our body's natural ability to heal. A brilliant, thought-provoking book that goes to the heart of the true nature of health & disease.

This book is a fresh perspective on the power of self. I always felt that life was so complex that every human should get a sort of 'instructional' book. This book is just that. Dr. Epstein (the author), who has developed the whole new 'Network' field has always seeked truth just as I have. He has delevered with this book. BRAVO! Thank You Dr. Epstien!
