About the Book
In a landmark UCLA medical report a terminal lymphoma patient who could barely breathe was saved at the last minute by an experimental cancer drug. No one else in the study showed any improvement and the drug was later proven to be worthless. The patient was convinced it would work and it did – his tumors swiftly shrank to half their size. Why did this patient go into remission? It was not only his total belief, but absence of substantial barriers to healing.
According to Dr. Henry Grayson, author of USE YOUR BODY TO HEAL YOUR MIND: Revolutionary Methods to Release All Barriers to Health, Healing and Happiness (Balboa Books; May 1, 2012), past and current painful experiences can make us sick. “If we don’t identify and clear out barriers, many of which are not conscious, then thinking positive thoughts, holding positive images, getting exercise and taking the right medications and supplements may do us little good. Cumulative traumatic or painful developmental experiences are stored in our limbic system – our survival brain – and studies have shown a stunning connection between these and current illnesses,” Dr. Grayson says.
This knowledge has been the source of groundbreaking scientific fields including biopsychosocial medicine, psychoneuroimmunology and epigenetics, all of which have changed the traditional reductionist view of allopathic medicine. In USE YOUR BODY TO HEAL YOUR MIND, Dr. Grayson draws on his understanding of this work and combines it with new insights in Western psychology, the mind-expanding inner wisdom of Eastern philosophy and the hard science of quantum physics, to explore the core of what keeps us from embracing a healthy and productive life. He explains how our bodies are made up of energy fields that respond to conscious thought, how those thoughts make us sick, and how to clear out past traumas and self-destructive inner dialogs to open the door to self-healing.
Unlike television talk show psychology, which relies upon superficial stories, USE YOUR BODY TO HEAL YOUR MIND dives into the guilt-ridden waters of our deepest traumas that are often hidden from our conscious minds. He works to clear away these blocks through techniques that have proven as effective on combat veterans battling post-traumatic stress disorder as on civilians plagued by depression, chronic illness and disorders previously thought to be untreatable. The result is more than a return to good health – it is the understanding that we deserve health and happiness and have the tools to make it possible.
