Your Essential How-To Guide for Self-Healing The greatest medical breakthrough in recent years isn’t the creation of a new drug or treatment—it’s the discovery of how much your mind affects your health. With Your Power to Heal, Dr. Henry Grayson offers a treasury of techniques and insights to help you harness the mindbody connection. “When we can identify and change the inner voices that keep us feeling powerless,” writes Dr. Grayson, “we can go beyond treating just symptoms or relying on doctors to fix us. We have far greater potential to heal than we realize.” In this practical guidebook, Dr. Grayson presents life-changing insights and effective tools anyone can use, including: • The new physics of healing—the ever-expanding body of research that reveals our untapped capacity for self-healing • Simple tips to nip many symptoms in the bud as they start • Self-assessment questionnaires to help you locate and change subconscious beliefs and disturbances • The Emotional Freedom Technique for resolving trauma and restoring your vitality • Thought Field Therapy to clear the blockages in your body’s energy system that are impeding health • Why therapy, diets, and exercise regimens often fail—and how to make them succeed You don’t need years of meditation practice to use your mind to improve your health. Your Power to Heal is an invaluable resource to help you harness the power of your own thoughts, transform illness at its source instead of just alleviating symptoms, and start taking charge of your health today.

Dr. Grayson studied Eastern and Western spiritual philosophies, quantum physics, neuropsychology (the new brain scan studies), and most of the major psychotherapies. He has created innovations on the new “power therapies” such as EMDR, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT), Thought Field Therapy (TFT), as well as non-local mind studies and other new sciences, and integrates them into the practice of his Synergetic Therapy in New York City and Connecticut.
