This book is about new and effective ways to address disease that aren’t commonly used by our physicians. Dr. Chris Gilbert demonstrates that our bodies speak to us all the time. Through symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, abdominal pain, anxiety, depression, and other symptoms, our bodies let us know that we have a problem and that we need to solve it. Dr. Gilbert, assisted by Dr. Haseltine, shows that by using her “giving the body a voice” technique, sufferers can discover what the symptoms mean and how to fix the often hidden reasons for their health problems.
Each chapter reveals a different way of identifying underlying issues. These original, simple, and fun techniques include role-playing, inner group therapy, dream interpretation, art interpretation, nature walks, and even conversations with death. The Listening Cure covers a range of common afflictions, from obesity to back pain, and devotes a full chapter to resolving sexual problems in relationships.
By listening to what our bodies have to say, Dr. Gilbert shows how to achieve long term deep cures versus temporary superficial fixes. Her secrets will become your secrets.

About the Author
Dr. Chris Gilbert is an Integrative and Holistic Medicine physician MD, PhD, now focusing mostly on public speaking. For fifteen years, she was in private practice in California, specializing in the combination of Western and Eastern Medicine and dedicating her life to treating and curing symptoms and illnesses that other physicians haven’t been able to address. She is known for her exceptional success in treating chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, depression, recurrent infections, lower back pain, sexual problems, unexplained abdominal pain, and arthritis through methods she pioneered (described in detail in this book). Before establishing her private practice, Dr. Gilbert worked with Doctors Without Borders and treated a staggering variety of illness suffered by poor and displaced people around the world. She has worked with patients in Mozambique (a pediatric hospi- tal during a civil war), Sri Lanka (28,000 refugees in the north of the Island during a civil war), Mauritania (Touareg refugee camp at the border of Mali) and China (400,000 people displaced by floods).

She is a co-blogger with her husband Dr. Haseltine, on PsychologyToday.com

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
OK, truthfully I thought this was another lousy, mind over body, heal yourself well, self-help book. The techniques presented were fairly basic principles to me. Then I realized to other, it might not be. Dr. Gilbert used several styles of "mental" processes to help patients step away enough from the situation to look at it sensibly. Some of the ideas may seem silly (with illustrations that add to this feeling!) but once embarked upon, help one to see things not noticed before. I know, sounds easy but then why are we not already trying this? Because we get too close to the issues that we take it too personally to let go. Sometimes the original issue was something else entirely that dragged us into the currents problem. A pretty good book to remind us how the healing process is more complex but manageable if we are wiling to try. ** DISCLAIMER: I won this in a GOODREAD giveaway.**
