Overview

• A comprehensive and easy-to-read guide to healing with energy medicines that helps you to identify your ailment and to choose the therapy that will best promote healing.

• A medical doctor with training in homeopathy, reflexology, and massage explores the multitude of therapies that use "energy" to heal common ailments.

• Covers over 50 energy therapies such as acupuncture, yoga, craniosacral therapy, massage, and many more.

The concept of energy is millennia old, understood throughout the ages in Eastern cultures to mean a force of vitality and healing—a person's chi or prana. Only recently has this ancient understanding of body energy become eroded in the name of scientific progress and modern medicine. But as self-healing power increasingly is proven to work at the energetic rather than the material level, and as illnesses are more commonly diagnosed as the imbalance of body energy, the field of energy medicine has become the most sought-after alternative to traditional Western medicine.

In The Complete Book of Energy Medicines, Dr. Helen Dziemidko supplies us with a comprehensive look at energy medicines. She combines a medical doctor's scientific viewpoint with an exhaustive knowledge of energy healing methods—from acupuncture and yoga to Bach Flower therapy and homeopathy. With clear, accessible explanations, she guides the reader through over 50 complementary therapies and the 20 most common chronic ailments for which they are appropriate treatments. Easy-to-follow color flowcharts help readers identify their ailments and the possible causes, then show which energy medicines provide the best path toward healing.
