This is a book you’ll read again and again … because you want to.
If you’re going through cancer, this book is a must read. It pulls you out of the abyss of “no hope, no chance” and into almost a feeling of, “Well, if they’re all doing it, why can’t I?” That’s exactly the point. Why not you?
But with my conservative, Just the Facts Ma’am dad reading over my shoulder, a book that is just peppered with feel good stories isn’t good enough. Sure, feel good stories make you feel good, but this is the science, the facts, the stories behind those stories.
This book is the science behind the stories of remission. It’s the curtains drawn back, notebook in hand, of how people heal from disease.
Kelly Turner, MD made it her passion and life’s work to find out why and how those patients in Dr. Andrew Weil’s book Spontaneous Healing really did it. The most compelling, fascinating and hard-to-believe-but-now-I-get-it discovery from the book is that 7 of the 9 factors aiding in cancer remission are internal, in your head, under your control. What does that mean to you? It means that it’s within reach, it’s a part of you, it’s within you.
So can you “learn” how to heal your body just like you learn to play the violin? If you practice more, will you get better at it? Are some people just born with more natural talent than others? Is the sky the limit? Will it come easier for some than for others? I think the answer to all of these are: yes.
So if someone heals themselves from cancer, why isn’t it on the front page of the newspaper? It’s an interesting question … and not easy to answer. Or is it?
It’s one of those books where you find hidden gems each time you read it–I’m currently on my third round and don’t really envision not reading it again. You wonder how you didn’t hear that the first time and then it’s seems brand new and you’re glad you listened to it again.
The book is extremely well done. You can tell that years of research, sweat, tears, and love went into this book. Get it as an audiobook and let it take you to another world to a world where you are not alone, where you have a say in your future, a world where healing is possible.
