Quantum Healing (Revised and Updated): Exploring the Frontiers of Mind/Body Medicine
(1990) Bantam Books: New York

Deepak Chopra has taken complex physiological information, as well as abstract concepts, and transformed them into entertaining, informative, and highly comprehensible reading. When I originally read this book in 1995, my belief was confirmed that everything in the Universe is connected and there ‘exists a primal, supreme, organizing and unifying intelligence that governs all creation’. Dr. Chopra affirmed the belief that guides my holistic practice, that an individual’s perception of experiences creates their ‘reality’, and these perceptions can be transformed and awareness expanded into every cell, freeing the intelligence of our body mind to move toward balance and health.

What You Feel, You Can Heal: A Guide for Enriching Relationships
(1984) Heart Publishing Company: Mill Valley, CA

John Gray, PhD, shows us how unresolved negative emotions from the past restrict our ability to love ourselves as well as others. Through learning to feel and express our hidden feelings we can begin to love and accept parts of us that were lost in the past. We need not be prisoners of our past but can set ourselves free to share the richness of who we truly are and receive the support and recognition that we deserve. This book inspires us to be kinder to ourselves and to create loving and lasting relationships. (from forward by Harold H. Bloomfield, M.D.) I bought this book in 1994 and was profoundly impacted by reading it. I have since shared it with many others who also found the content useful.

Anticancer: A New Way of Life

In “Anti-Cancer: A New Way of Life,” French-born psychiatrist and neuroscientist Dr. David Servan-Schreiber discusses his fifteen-year battle with brain cancer. Although conventional treatments worked initially, the cancer recurred.  Dr. Servan-Schreiber does NOT encourage cancer patients to reject their doctors’ advice concerning surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments. However, he does believe that there is nothing to lose and everything to gain by making changes in one’s diet, level of physical activity, psychological attitude, and environment. Through key ideas, he presents an updated view on cancer growth and how to mobilize our vital mechanisms and use the resources of the body to defend ourselves.
