From the bestselling author of The Twelve Stages of 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," "A person may be too far gone to heal," or "Healing is not always available."

The myths we accept without question have a powerful, magically suggestive effect on the way we interpret our symptoms, the way we heal, and the quality of life we experience. Our stories, or myths, can create the magic of healing in our lives, or they can stop the magic completely.

Dr. Epstein contends that unless we question the myths that control our lives, we will continue to make the same healing choices we have been conditioned to make, even if those choices are killing us.

In this breakthrough book, Dr. Epstein divides the healing myths into four categories — Social, Biomedical, Religious, and 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.
