For Patients & Professionals

A Brief Listen to

It was hard to contain my excitement when I first discovered a way to reconcile the cold world of material science and the warm world of humanistic medicine. My first inklings came in the Emergency Department, where I discovered how patients’ ideas could incite illness and how my ideas—properly conveyed—could elicit cures. There, to my surprise, I witnessed bleeding halt, heart arrhythmias convert to normal, airways dilate—all in response to simple suggestions. Later, in private practice, I watched agog as biopsy-proven tumors regressed and disappeared and chronic illnesses abated—again, in response to simple suggestions. Mind Matters.

Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to share my techniques and understandings with students (nurses, dentists, chiropractors, doctors, osteopaths, etc.) around the world. They, too, have witnessed and reported equally stunning results.

Which is why I’m deeply gratified to be sharing HEALING: Beyond Pills & Potions with you. I hope it brings my fellow caregivers the joy of understanding and the excitement of new capabilities. Equally, I hope HEALING inspires patients to reclaim their sovereignty, even in times of illness, and to exercise agency over their own health and healing.
