More About This Book

Overview

The Skeptic's Guide to The Adventures of Life: An Experiential Review of Alternative Healing

The Skeptic's Guide to the Adventures of Life is a lighthearted look at life's deeper lessons and mysteries as it chronicles business strategist Connie Siewert's personal experiences, and those of her healers, during a three year journey to wellness.

As part of this focused quest for optimum health, Connie explored past lives with a hypnotherapist and spirit guide from Sylvia Browne's Society of Spiritus Novus. Through reiki, healing touch and shamanic rituals, she was introduced into the world of our energetic selves and came to understand the power that it wields over our physical bodies. She experienced the power of distance healing and was given the gift of knowing momentarily what it is like to have a highly developed sixth sense. She has been cupped and had her acupoints punctured, her feet and related organs reflexed, her colon cleansed and her eyes studied as an uncanny source of information regarding her health. Connie has learned the vibrational affects of color, music and minerals, been counseled by the planets, angels and horses and communed with the other side. And through it all, she was able to significantly improve her lung condition, eliminate the pain and stiffness from arthritis in her knee and improve her overall wellness, all while stimulating the mind and delighting the spirit.

Upon reading The Skeptic's Guide to The Adventures of Life Mariette Edwards, principal of Star Maker Enterprises, summed up the healing odyssey as, "Connie's CPA sensibilities are challenged and inspired by the surprising and unexpected revelations her explorations have produced.  It's like Arthur Andersen meets Tinkerbell!"

When asked what prompted her to write her book, Connie shares, "According to the CDC, 36% of the population has tried some form of alternative therapy which increases to 49% when people have advanced degrees or 43% when income exceeds $75,000. I wrote this book as a vehicle to expand mainstream America's understanding of the exciting possibilities out there in alternative therapies. My hope is that I will encourage other people to seek new solutions to their health challenges and ultimately improve their wellbeing as I have."

Stephanie Maxine Ross, medical botanist and holistic practitioner to CEO's and Celebrities, had this to say about The Skeptic's Guide to The Adventure's of Life, "Connie Siewert, the 'healthy skeptic', charters a refreshing exploration into other healing modalities with honesty, wit, and charm. She inspires us to consider with openness new possibilities in our quest for wellness."

    What a fascinating journey

    This book took me on a fabulous journey of exploration in which I laughed out loud and at the same time felt the author's pain and frustration. It is a mine of information and I was totally captivated.

    Great Way to Explore Alternative Healing Possibilities

    If you've never tried alternative healing and information sources because of your 'conventional' upbringing and learning, but wonder about them, Connie's book is a great resource. You can find out about the possibilities in the safety of your own home. As the daughter of a medical doctor and a tax accountant, I really found Connie's book helpful in answering my questions and deciding whether to pursue some alternative sources.

    The Review for The Skeptics Guide to the Adventures of Life

    Wow...what a great book that is long overdue. Connie has shared her personal experiences and findings for the betterment of mankind. This book was such an easy read with great insights to alternative methods of healing beyond the realms of traditional medicine. The last time I was as excited about a book was when I read 'Many Lives, Many Masters' years ago. This is a great book to guide people into opening up themselves and seeking a variety of ways to heal their mind, body, and spirit. It's also a great resource book with contacts for reliable practitioners and healers. The whole time I was reading this book I felt as if I knew Connie. She captured my attention throughout the whole book. I have been telling everyone I talk to how great the book is and they have to read it....
