San Diego Physician WINS BEST INDIE BOOK AWARD 2020.

Dr. Steve Bierman explains in his award-winning book, HEALING – Beyond Pills & Potions, that compassion is not enough. Compassionate caregivers (doctors, nurses, osteopaths, naturopaths, etc.) often misspeak, casting inadvertent curses on patients, when they could just as easily be offering curative suggestions. The words of a caregiver, as Dr. Bierman reminds us, can harm or heal. In fact, says Dr. Bierman, “ideas may be the most potent epigenetic factors we currently have at our command—they can both turn genes on and turn genes off.” This is true mind/body medicine.

HEALING teaches caregivers, first and foremost, how to avoid causing inadvertent harm with their words and deeds. This first lesson emerges as Dr. Bierman delivers a clearer understanding the true nature of medical information and the limitations of prognosticating any individual’s outcome. Then, HEALING goes deeper:

  • explaining the role of unhealthy wishes, dangerous identifications and untoward conditioning events in the causation of illness,
  • unraveling the mysteries of hypnosis, placebo and ritual,
  • teaching caregivers how to use the power of communication to effect remarkable and unexpected cures.

The book is rich with stunning case examples from Dr. Bierman’s 40-year practice of blending traditional allopathic medicine with medical hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming and other integrative modalities.

All caregivers, regardless of specialty or training, can benefit from reading HEALING; for, when it comes to talking with patients, very few caregivers were ever taught the curative communication skills offered in HEALING. As one critic wrote, “This book turns artisans into artists, helpers into healers.”

The annual Best Indie Book Award (BIBA) is an international literary award contest recognizing outstanding achievement by independent authors. Entries are limited to independently (indie) published books, including those from small presses, e-book publishers, and self-published authors. HEALING – Beyond Pills & Potions is the 2020 winner of the BIBA in non-fiction/alternative medicine.
