Through the years, I’ve come across some awesome books that can help you heal your body and change the way you think and feel about your health. If you have any other suggestions, please add them in the comments section below.
Here they are in no particular order.
1. 12 Stages of Healing by Dr. Donald Epstein
Dr. Epstein is one of my mentors and his work plays a large role in my practice. During my advanced workshops, we often use exercises from this book to move our breath, energy, body and change our state.
2. Daring Greatly by Dr. Brene Brown
She is a researcher who studies shame, courage, worthiness and vulnerability. I first heard of Dr. Brene Brown through her Ted talk, the Power of Vulnerability, which is one of the most watched talks ever. Here it is: https://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability?language=en
3. Molecules of Emotion by Dr. Candace Pert
Dr. Candance Pert discovered in her research that the brain and the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems work together as a unit and system in which every part communicates with every other part. In other words, your mind and your body are dependent on each other and work together. She states that “emotions, are the nexus between mind and matter, going back and forth between the two and influencing both.” In summary, your mind and body work together and are influenced by your emotions!
4. Biology of Belief by Dr. Bruce Lipton
In the Biology of Belief, Dr. Lipton talks about the discoveries of the biochemical effects of the brain’s function on your cells. He goes on to show that all the cells of your body are affected by your thoughts and he describes the molecular pathways through which this occurs.
5. Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom by Dr. Christiane Northrup, M.D.
In this book, medical doctor, Christine Northrup speaks of the medicine of empowerment. She states that “it is abundantly clear to us all that a woman’s state of health is highly influenced by the culture in which she lives, her position within it, her experiences, and her day-to-day thoughts, beliefs, and behaviours.”
Mindset plays a huge role in healing yourself. There has to be a belief that healing is possible, a want to heal the body and a willingness to do what it takes.
