5-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Pearl's path and gift to us all
This is an easy read, his directness and passion has changed my life as I walk my soul path.He explains how we can tap into this energy to assist others and ourselves in healing mental, spiritual and physical aspects of being human. He also helpsus to understand how ego may hold us back. I was guided to actually attend an oreintation in Washington, DC and met Dr. Pearl. I have taken Reconnective Healing I, II and completed "The Reconnection-Level III"
3-0 out of 5 stars Coming down to earth
When I began reading this book, I too was carried away by Eric Pearl's exuberance and passion. His book is heady stuff.Pearl is very funny, and he is even more persuasive, making some very astute observations of the human condition.The first part of the book - which is largely autobiographical - on the whole resonated well with me, and for this, I could have given 4 stars.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!
I've never been inspired to write an Amazon review before until I read this book-I've read a lot of books about healing, but not one has resonated with me like Eric Pearl's book. His easy to read and humorous style is exciting and engaging, and I could actually feel my vibration level rising while reading or even discussing the book. This is a life-changing book everyone can benefit from, and unlike many other books about healing 'techniques' Dr. Pearl isn't condescending, preachy or dogmatic. Reconnective Healing is something everyone can do without ritual or exclusive techniques and he makes a big point of that. I was so inspired by his book that I am flying halfway across the country to see him speak...I can't recommend this book enough! If enough people read this perhaps the consciousness of the world will shift in a posititive direction when we realize we're all connected and all empowered to heal. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars How to Heal the Sick
This book kept me at the edge of my seat from start to finish. There is so much to learn from this book. This book is very thought & prayer provoking. I can not encourage you enough to read this book because it is so inspiring.

5-0 out of 5 stars General evaluation of How to Heal the Sick
1.Is this an in depth presentation?
5-0 out of 5 stars Faith Building, Faith Inspiring, Faithfully True
Coming from a Fundamental Baptist background, I was extremely skeptical about this book and the ideas in it.I must admit though when I reasoned with my spirit and not my mind, I could truly understand the Biblical relevance of healing and miracles for today!After applying the principles taught in this book, my husband's legs have grown to be even, his spine was straightened, my arms are now the same length, my spine has straightened, and my husband has administered healing to others as well.Excellent, excellent book.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Healing Ancient Wounds: The Renegade's Wisdom
This book was first loaned to me. I enjoyed it so much I purchased my own copy. It does a great job of explaining myofacial release and myofacial unwinding in layman's terms. I am recovering from a near fatal car crash and a physical therapist is using these techniques to help me recover physically and release the cellular trauma of the crash through unwinding. John Barnes is a dynamic person and the book held my interest through many anecdotal stories.

2-0 out of 5 stars Why pay for an overlong advert?
The book is interesting as a portrayal of the guy and the great work he does but lets be honest it is just one long advertorial.I also have my questions over the artist's choice of female, a rather young nubile woman, to accompany the glorifying images of Mr Barnes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Do I say WOW now or later? - or both?
When I was first introduced to Myofascial Release (as taught by John Barnes), I had to know more.I talked my therapist into loaning me this book and read it in less than 24 hours.I was fascinated.As I read it, I knew I had to have a copy of the book for myself, so I ordered it from Amazon.I have read the book a total of 3 times now and find something new in it every time I read it.I also find that I can pick it up and open it to any page and find words that I need to hear at that moment.Recently I had the privilege of receiving treatment from the amazing therapists and John Barnes himself in his Sedona, AZ Myofascial Release (MFR) Treatment Center.It was an awesome experience.Before receiving MFR treatments from my local therapist, I couldn't do my grocery shopping on my feet.I was shopping for a wheelchair when I discovered Myofascial Release and have since climbed up into three mountains.Needless to say, this has changed my life! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Partial Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems
I think this book is Possibly the best Mathematic book for Engineer I've ever read. This is due to the fact that the material is so much clear and the examples are so easy to follow. The book's explanation is precise and accurate. The exercises on every chapter are helpful. I practise almost most of the exercise problems. In fact, I score an "A" on the first Test. I will recommend it to everyone without hesitation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Initial impressions
Nakhle:Just a quick note to thank you for your book! It arrived Thursday, and I've been reading it and doing the exercises both on paper and in Mathematica 3.0. After a quick review of the whole book and a thorough reading of the first 70 pages so far, I can say I just love it! IfI'd only had a book like this in college and graduate school I'd havebecome a much better electrical engineer. Yours is one of the bestexpositions of both Fourier series and partial differential equations I'veused. Although I haven't gotten very far into the boundary value problemsand the orthogonal functions areas of the book yet, my initial reviewindicates they will be excellent also. I am enjoying your book immensely,and I thank you very much for it. I'll update this with a more thoroughreview when I have a chance to finish the book, but I wanted to share myinitial impressions so others might weigh them into their own decisions toget this excellent book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A clear introduction to PDEs, Fourier series
This text not only provides a simple and easy-to- read-the-first-time guide to solving PDEs with Fourier series, it also is chock-full with all the necessary details and includes many interesting problems.I took acourse out of this book as a sophomore in college and found it veryinteresting and useful.The style and difficulty is very similar to atypical undergraduate ordinary differential equations book, except this isbetter organized.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth the read!
If you're on this body assaulting drug, in need of cliche-comforting 'misery loves company', then this is the book to read. A quick, informative read, and one that leaves Prednisone users with hope for body normalcy once again.

1-0 out of 5 stars Barely informative and depressing for a long-term user
This book should be titled: Eugenia Zukerman's Coping with Prednisone.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Answers are Finally Available to Prednisone Patients!
This book helps to answer the questions regarding the emotional rollercoaster ride that longterm prednisone patients experience.Medicines are explained and contraindications as well as how to live with the side effects.Prednisone is a drug that is not kind to the body but sometimes necessary and worth the side effects when there is no other choice and this book explains why it is the drug of choice.

I've been using energy tapping for several years.I went through two of Gary Craig's courses, then began buying books on the subject for further (and different) information.Gloria Arenson's book is simply the best.The reviews here cover most of what I was going to say, so I'll just add a paragraph.

Loved the book, THE HEALING CONSCIOUSNESS, by
5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Book!A must read!
This is a fascinating and beautiful view from a doctor's perspective of the synchronistic benefit of combining the Western and Eastern worlds of medicine and healing.Wow!It makes such perfect sense. Dr. DuPree has not only embraced this marriage of East and West, but had the courage to write a book about it, perhaps to the chagrin of others in her field.But wait, lest you think this is a "preachy" book, it's not.There's no soap box for miles around.This is a gentle read that is honest and without pretense written by a female doctor who comes off equally gentle, honest and without pretense.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Healing Consciousness: A Doctor's Journey to Healing
This beautifully honest book provides the reader with a sense of caring, warmth, self-worth, support, and empowerment. One very special and talented doctor, Dr. Beth Dupree, takes the reader on her introspective professional, and very personal, journey. This book is important to those who must address the challenges of cancer on a daily basis, those who support and/or live with someone with cancer, medical community members who need to grow in their profession and who need to understand what their every word or action means to a patient and their family member, and finally, for those who "care." ...

This book is very useful for preventative measures. It makes you think about how your body talks and reveals the weaknesses years before problems appear. If one has the courage to follow its suggestions, then one has a chance not to become a statistic of cancer, heart disease or diabetes.

4-0 out of 5 stars Valuable Aid for Cell Salt selection
This book would be extremely helpful for healthcare workers. The excellent color photographs illustrate clearly how one recognizes stressed areas of the face, ears and skin that indicate deficiencies of Cell Salts. Supplementing with the easily obtainable Cell Salts can help improve health, which in turn can be relected in the facial features.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great and Helpful Book on a Serious Disease
This is an excellent book, very reader-friendly, and filled with anecdotes from real people who suffer with this common yet vastly underdiagnosed condition.It is informative, well-written, and will be helpful to any who suffer from RLS, or anyone who cares for people who have this sometimes debilitating disease.

5-0 out of 5 stars Authoritative, Comprehensive and Readable presentation of RLS
In 1994 the author wrote an article describing Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) for Modern Maturity (now AARP Magazine).Even the editor was dumbfounded when 40,000 letters came in, many, many of the writers saying they thought they were the only one who had the condition, that they couldn't find a doctor who would listen to them or treat them.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic Text on Healing from a Holisitic Perspective
Cowan took from the wisdom of Rudolf Steiner, Samual Hahneman [homeopathy], Weston Price DDS and Edgar Cayce. If you enjoy research, there are hundreds of books on these wise healers.But, if you're like me and want to expedite your research, then The Fourfold Path to Healing is for you.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource..
This book is an excellent companion book to Nourishing Traditions. It is full of good basic information and an easy to understand read. It is also a great book on it's own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Revolutionary and Inspiring
Having just attended the Fourfold Path to Healing Conference in Oakland, CA, (www.fourfoldhealing.com) I feel absolutely inspired to spread the messages of this book. If you are looking for a new approach to health and well-being, yet not "new fad", if you believe in the wisdom of traditional peoples, and you want to help co-create a beautiful world of healthy individuals and societies, this is the book to read. It is very attractive, well-organized, and will definately introduce you to some new ways of perceiving our bodies and bringing them to wholeness.

Ok.I have some comments to make before actually reviewing the book.
1-0 out of 5 stars "Oxygen Healing Therapies" Made of Thin Air
Before the reader even gets to the largely bogus contents of this bizarre tome, the front cover misleads the incautious purchaser with an announcement in the very center of the page of a foreword by Charles H. Farr, M.D., Ph.D. who supposedly was "Nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine, 1993"
2-0 out of 5 stars Quite Interesting
An interseting book, but I much prefer the work of Ed McCabe, the real master of Oxygen Therapies. His latest book Flood Your Body with Oxygen which I could not put down, gets to grip with the subject in a fascinating way and style that Altman does not have. Overall it is a fair book. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Patients and healers in the context of culture
Describes observations of clinical interviews between various medical practitioners, namely folk healers, temple medicine men, and Chinese style and Western style physicians, and their patients. Stresses the importance of adopting proper cultural perspectives, making one's interpretations within that framework, and relying on direct observation. Urges an integration of social and cultural methods into the routine training of doctors, so as to enable a more humane and appropriate clinical practice.
