There is no longer any doubt that the way we think affects our bodies: countless scientific studies have shown this to be true. For former pharmaceutical scientist Dr David Hamilton, the testing of new drugs highlighted how profoundly the mind and body are connected. Time and time again, the control group of patients in drug trials improved at similar rates to those who actually received the medicines. Astounded, Dr Hamilton decided to change the direction of his work to explore the relationship between the mind and the body. This bestselling acclaimed book was first published 10 years ago. In it, Dr Hamilton explores the effect of visualization, belief and positive thinking on the body, and shows how using our imagination and mental processes can stimulate our own defences and healing systems to combat disease, pain and illness. In this new edition, Dr Hamilton has added four new chapters to discuss the latest cutting-edge information and extraordinary new techniques. These include using imagery to stimulate the immune system - a method that can benefit cancer patients undergoing conventional treatment - effectively using the mind to speed up rehabilitation from stroke, and powerful visualization strategies to help facilitate recovery from injury and illness.
The connection between your mind and body is a powerful tool in taking control of your life and ambitions. The power of thought can affect us in profound, often life-changing, ways in all areas of our life, including the incredible effect of thought on health. This radical book by scientist Dr. David Hamilton explores the power of visualisation, belief, and positive thinking on the body, including the changes these practices can create on a cellular level. David shows how we can use imagination and thought processes to stimulate our body's own defences and healing systems to combat disease, pain, and illness. The book includes true-life stories from people who have successfully visualized themselves well and an A-Z list of visualisations for different physical (and some mental-health) conditions.
Using case histories, including those involving cancer, Pennington examines and defines the components of successful healing, demonstrating that it is the psychological process rather than any specific technique that shifts the balance point from dying to living.
What are your symptoms and illnesses telling you about yourself? In Your Body Speaks Your Mind, renowned teacher and bestselling author Deb Shapiro shows how understanding your body's 'language of symptoms' can increase your potential for healing. She explains the interconnectedness between your physical state and your emotional, psychological and spiritual health, and reveals: How unresolved emotional and psychological issues can affect your physical health; How feelings and thoughts are linked to specific parts of the body; How you can take steps to heal your body with your mind, and your mind with your body. Your Body Speaks Your Mind shows you how to initiate communication between body and mind, and decode the priceless information your body is giving you, in order to achieve better health and a greater sense of wellbeing.
Body, Mind & Spirit by Mona Lisa Schulz, M.D./Ph.D.
Many of us grapple with how to stay happy, calm, and focused in a world that seems to get more complex by the minute. How do we keep our wits about us, our mood stable, and our memory intact when our brains and bodies are bombarded with information and influences from every side? This one-of-a-kind resource combines cutting-edge science with compassion and wisdom to offer answers we can really use. Heal Your Mind continues the three-pronged healing approach that Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz and Louise Hay pioneered together in All Is Well: Heal Your Body with Medicine, Affirmations, and Intuition. Here, it’s applied to aspects of the mind ranging from depression, anxiety, and addiction to memory, learning, and even mystical states. You’ll learn what’s going on in your brain and body when: • You feel sad, angry, or panicked • An addictive substance or behavior has hold of you • You have trouble focusing, reading, or remembering • A past trauma is clouding your mind in the present • An emotional state is a clue to a physical ailment • And more And in each chapter, you’ll get a “virtual healing experience” through case studies in the All Is Well Clinic, where Dr. Mona Lisa uses medical intuition to pinpoint issues in a wide range of prototypical client histories and she and Louise offer solutions and affirmations to help restore well-being. Today, the “pill-for-every-ill” approach is so prevalent that we may think our minds and bodies need an endless array of expensive, ever-changing pharmaceutical interventions. In truth, medicines are just one approach to healing the mind; nutritional supplements give us another important way to support mind-body health; and affirmations, as well as various forms of therapy, can restore us to balance by changing the way we think. Heal Your Mind puts all these tools at your disposal to help you choose your own path toward wholeness.

As a cosmologist and healer, Dr Jude Currivan has journeyed to nearly seventy countries around the world and has explored and studied numerous important sacred sites and places of conflict. HOPE shares her understanding and experiences of the energetic connections between people and places from a spiritual perspective which is informed and expanded by leading edge science. HOPE investigates too how different groups and countries reflect and embody the same themes and issues that we experience on an individual human level. It reveals how the history of different areas of conflict around the world and our collective fear-based behaviours are based on traumas that we have energetically continued to resonate with - and crucially how to heal and release them. HOPE also shows the cosmic connection between astrological influences and the 'bigger picture' of what is unfolding, and explores why 2012 is so synchronistically destined to offer us the breakthrough of a shift of collective consciousness – if, as the Mayans say, we choose to do so!
