Overview

Why should we meditate? How can crystals heal the mind and body? Why is visualization so powerful - and so effective?

Alternative therapies, healing modalities, and spiritual practices are often referred to as 'woo-woo,' - but many of these approaches are actually supported by compelling scientific evidence.

In this dynamic and thought-provoking book, David R. Hamilton PhD dives deeper into the true nature of consciousness and presents the cutting-edge research behind energy healing, crystals, meditation, and more.

You'll discover:
· The science behind some of today's most popular alternative practices
· How your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs have healing power
· The benefits of nature and a holistic approach to healing
· A fascinating link between consciousness and human connection
· The relationship between suppressed emotions and disease

The ideas behind some of these holistic therapies have been around for millennia - but now we have scientific evidence demonstrating how they can contribute to physical, emotional, and energetic healing too.

It's time to embrace the truth: That woo-woo really does work.
