Our bodies have an amazing capacity for self-repair and regeneration and healing a broken ankle or grazed knee. The power to heal exists in all of us, but few people learn how to employ, support, and harness it in times of greatest need—while fighting an illness or disease.
In this unique book, experienced alternative therapist Josef Ulrich suggests that drawing on our innate spiritual creativity, authenticity, and self-will can lead to active healing, with the patient no longer a victim of the condition but a vital contributor to self-recovery.
With plenty of case studies, exercises, observations, and checklists, this practical resource sets out to empower us to boost our immune system, and—in conjunction with conventional treatments—give us the best chance of healing.
