Read an Excerpt

In this book, I am presenting the new concept of the Solar Body. What do I mean by this? “Solar Body” refers to someone who creates her own health and happiness by recovering her natural healing power, making herself shine brightly like the sun.

It doesn’t take complex technology or tremendous effort to recover natural healing power and achieve a Solar Body. The Solar Body isn’t about creating an amazingly muscular physique, or developing an enviably slender waistline. It’s about reviving a sense for the balance and harmony that exist perfectly within us.

The secret of natural healing power—the heart of the Solar Body concept—is found in a linking of three elements: body temperature, breathing, and the power of the observing mind. When, by concentrating our minds, we feel our body heat and observe our breathing, we recover the desired balance of body temperature, with the head cool and the lower abdomen warm. Breathing naturally grows deeper and slower. The life energy in our bodies is activated and circulates, and our natural healing power manifests best in this state.

In this book, I’ve introduced some simple but powerful methods of meditation and exercise for maximizing natural healing power. The Solar Body Method is made up of Sunlight Meditation to receive solar energy directly from sunlight; Solar Energy Circuit Training for total transformative healing with focused awareness; and Solar Body exercises for increasing body temperature and recovering optimal energy balance through movement.

Throughout my life, I have researched methods for recovering health of body and mind and for developing the potential of the brain, and I’ve shared what I’ve learned with many people. Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide have found certain exercises to be effective. Three of the simplest yet most effective—those that best incorporate the principles involved in recovering natural healing power—have been selected for the Solar Body Method. These meditations and exercises look so easy that you might be tempted to question how they could be considered exercise at all. But you’ll be surprised by the powerful results.

I LOVE the Solar Body Method!  I tried it, and it healed a ligament injury in my ribcage.  The pain is gone!  Also, the toe tapping method realliy helped my flexibility!  Everyone should not only read the book, but really try out the method, and the online course too!  It's awesome!

This is by far one of the best well being book I've ever read. The author, Ilchi Lee, explains incredibly well as to how our human body's innate healing capacity can be utilized in a very easy way so that everyone can get benefit from it. Not until I read this book did I realize that the cause of all my health issues were due to an overstimulated sympathetic nervous system, and conversely, an understimulated parasympathetic nervous system over the years. I had lost my body's innate healing capacity. The Solar Body book helped me realize this simple but overlooked fact. This makes so much sense and suggests how to become naturally healthier and happier. This book has become the bible of well being for me. I've been doing the exercises the Solar Body book suggests for some time now. Not only did all the physical symptoms I had over the years disappear such as eczema, shortness of breath, back pain, and depression to name a few, I also became more peaceful and happier. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their health and lives without needs to resort to expensive health care system but in a simple and natural way.

A wonderful blending of some of Ilchi Lee’s most effective curricula (Brain Wave Vibration, Toe & Abdominal Tapping) into one book with the addition of his newest methods; Solar Body & Circuit Training. This book also goes in depth into the often overlooked concepts of the importance of "temperature" and "breath" as a component of proper health and being your own best doctor. I have been practicing most of the exercises in the book over the past six months and I can say that they have helped tremendously with my body, mind and spirit. I highly recommend this book to anyone hoping to help rebuild these aspects of their life from the ground up.

The Solar Body book is so clear and simple. However, when you really make time to focus on the principles and apply them to yourself it makes such a big difference and benefit to your health and life. I am so grateful to learn  and practice from this book. It makes everything so easy to digest and also explain to others. The exercises and techniques are so effective when practiced and the book is such a great reminder of the healing power we all have inside.

This book does a great job of describing how we can heal ourselves without resorting to expensive treatments and procedures. It is written in a very conversational tone and is easy to understand and the healing methods are easy to do and adaptable to each individual. The description of our nervous systems and how they relate to our health are very revealing and make perfect sense. If you wish to free yourself from medical intervention as much as possible, this is the book for you!

If you think that the health can only be obtained through getting help from professionals and expensive scanning machines, you owe it to yourself to read this book.  The Solar Body book reminds you that health is the natural state of our being.  To remember that, you must accept the responsibility and ownership of your body and feel it, take care of it, and move it in the right way.  The Solar Body book helps you do that.  Let your natural healing power shine!

The Solar Body book has helped me in some many ways, such as making my body more flexible with plate balancing and helping my restless leg syndrome with toe tapping.
Lea Ramos More than 1 year ago
Solar Body book is a simple way to increase temperature in your core and boost your immune system. It also helps with mind focus and slow deep breathing as you go through the exercises.  Very effective indeed. Thank you

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite The Solar Body: The Secret to Natural Healing is a nonfiction, personal transformation self-help book written by Ilchi Lee. Lee is a world-recognized author, educator and mind-body trainer. In The Solar Body, he presents his theories on, and definition of, a solar body. He discusses the roles of breathing, body temperature, and having the mind function as an observer in maintaining optimal health and well-being. He presents a program that practitioners can use to maintain their own solar body, which consists of meditation, energy circuit training, and physical exercises, and he explains the benefits of each of them. The author provides a link for an instructional video that shows the proper forms and movements for the exercises described in The Solar Body. He concludes the book with selected testimonials and a biographical sketch. When I began reading Ilchi Lee's nonfiction personal transformation book, The Solar Body: The Secret to Natural Healing, I hadn't dreamed that I'd become so enthusiastic about yet another self-help book. But the Solar Body is much more than that, and this fact quickly became evident to me. Lee is a marvelous teacher who clearly sets out his instructions in such a way that it's easy and very accessible. I couldn't wait to try out the various parts of his Solar Body program, and began trying each one as they were presented. The feelings of relaxation and well-being were instantly available to me, and I slept better last night than I have for some time. This morning, as I was writing this review, I stopped and worked through the video of the physical exercises. I was surprised to find a complete instructional video and enjoyed the provided guidance and support as I worked through it. I'm very impressed with Lee's personal transformation work, The Solar Body: The Secret to Natural Healing, and I most highly recommend it.

Reviewed by Nandita Keshavan for Readers' Favorite The Solar Body: The Secret to Natural Healing is an innovative book which encourages people to connect to the energy of the universe, experience energy within themselves, and increase their own vitality. Author Ilchi Lee has written very creatively and sincerely on many of the issues affecting people today, and how to overcome problems by harnessing the energy of the universe. The book is based on simple but profound principles: that energy is to be awakened in each person, that one must do this for oneself without relying on external factors, that the energy can be tangibly experienced, and needs to be circulated and sustained effectively to achieve considerable healing and improvement in health and vitality. Lee has developed a concept based on the sun, which is the concept that by adopting more solar energy within ourselves via meditation, we can increase our sense of well being and cleanse our mind and body of stagnant energy. The book is filled with numerous exercises which are all developed by Lee and are intended to teach people how to meditate to feel energetic improvements. I noted as I was trying them that even without a lot of concentration, the visualisations made intuitive sense and I was able to experience the effects described in the book. The book describes 12 energetic patterns, known as solar circuits, and I believe that these visualisations are an engaging and restorative way to heal a tired mind or inspire people to better vitality and creativity. One of the best features of the book is the way in which it integrates spirituality with science and also with real life experience. The book does not neglect scientific content, and his principles are well explained and also contain references to research studies. It also features colour pictures of patterns described, and question and answer sections. Furthermore, the writing itself is engaging and simple to grasp. The book ends with three further simple exercises which can be viewed online, and Lee rightly explains that people should take away from it what appeals to them and works best for them. I believe that different people will respond to these exercises differently, depending on several factors. I can definitely argue that it's worth a try and they all require positive thinking. Lee's final message is most profound and fundamental - that greater connection to the universal life force is the ultimate aim, and the exercises he presents are simple and yet effective tools designed to encourage this. I had come to believe in several ideas he presented and was glad to see a similarity with my own values. These visualisations and ideas complement what I already have worked towards thus far, and I hope that Lee's work will continue to inspire people to take charge of their own spirituality, and seek better vitality, healing and connection to universal energy.

Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite The Solar Body (The Secret to Natural Healing) is a self-help book. In her book, Ilchi Lee introduces her concept of The Solar Body. The term “Solar Body” refers to “someone who creates her own health and happiness by recovering her natural healing power, making herself shine brightly like the sun.” The Solar Body Method consists of Sunlight Meditation, Solar Energy Circuit Training, and Solar Body Exercises. One can achieve natural healing power by combining three elements: body temperature, breathing, and mind control. These elements are more effective when combined, but can be done individually too. The author promotes meditation because it will spiritually condition our minds and bodies. He states: a body that has lost balance wants to return to good health because health is the most natural state of mind. Ilchi Lee believes persons who are sick or suffering from stress do not have to constantly seek medical help as some health conditions can be easily cured. He believes there are other healthy, natural alternatives to medicine that will enhance people physically, mentally and spiritually, and has provided a few remedies in her self-help book, The Solar Body. Other related topics include Plate Balancing that strengthens major joints and energy channels, Toe Tapping, and Brain Wave Vibrations. The section Using Solar Herbs promotes sage as a main healing ingredient. Diagrams demonstrate the correct exercise positions and show where heat generates through our bodies and why it does, according to our moods. I found this book reflective in content.

This self-help book, while ostensibly about health, left me so inspired at the end. I felt stirred to start or join a movement to help everyone feel that they have something amazing inside, something that will straighten anything inside that becomes crooked, whether it's physical, mental, or emotional. I hope many people get a chance to read this book.

This wonderful little book packed with solid information and how-to’s to restore our natural healing ability and become a “solar body”, who creates her own health and happiness by recovering her natural healing power, making herself shine brightly like the sun. The author made clear connections between eastern philosophy of holistic healing and the scientific facts and rationales behind. The illustration of the natural healing methods is straight forward and easy to understand. As a professionally certified life coach and a yoga instructor, I cannot wait to share the tools in this book with my clients and members. 
Stephanie_AZ More than 1 year ago
What a great book with easy and simple to follow instructions for the exercises and meditations! And the information about stress, temperature , breath...these are very easy concepts that I had never put together in the same way, so when he does it I can clearly see why these exercises have helped so many!  And then of course at the end when you realize healing yourself is just the first step in a much broader concept. Amazing!
