All is Well by Louise Hay and Mona Lisa Schulz
I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes, I was not financially compensated for my opinion. That said, I rate this book at a full 5 out of 5 stars. Brilliant. This is a home run. Louise Hay has brought so much public awareness to the mind/body connection since the 1980's, and now Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz has taken those ideas to a level of deeper understanding. If you've enjoyed any of their previous works, this one is a no-brainer, you'll love it. And if you're new to the idea that our thoughts manifest in the body as conditions, you'll enjoy it too. The research that backs up the theory is astonishing. The authors do a great job of explaining how thought patterns affect the human body, and then go on to teach an integrated treatment approach; never a one size fits all prescription. The reader is given a lot of information on the seven emotional centers, and how and why they affect they body the way they do. At the end of each section case studies are offered, and their treatment plans are detailed. Patients were given daily affirmation work to help heal and strengthen their mindset. Diseases were treated, not just with medical drugs, but through adjustments in nutrition, supplementation, visualization, and exercise or activity levels as well. This book gives me hope that more people will get the lesson, and start taking responsibility for their health. This is a very empowering book. It could very well change, or even save your life.
