    I realized that the best way for me to read this book was as a tool for self reflection Some of the exercises are useful for understanding yourself better Perhaps some people are able to use it for healing and maybe I will in the future, but mostly I found some of the ideas hard to accept I felt that the author was taking things too far, being too specific For example, I have a hard time believing that having a sore throat means that I m having a hard time swallowing my reality I do however I realized that the best way for me to read this book was as a tool for self reflection Some of the exercises are useful for understanding yourself better Perhaps some people are able to use it for healing and maybe I will in the future, but mostly I found some of the ideas hard to accept I felt that the author was taking things too far, being too specific For example, I have a hard time believing that having a sore throat means that I m having a hard time swallowing my reality I do however, agree that there is a body mind connection and that Western society ignores that connection all too often What I appreciated most from this book is the underlying message that you need to listen to your bodyand that each person has to figure out what their own body is trying to say The issue I have is that I felt as though the author was giving her own interpretations as fact, when in reality each body is different and there are many different ways to understand what the body is saying My favorite aspect of this book is the CD that comes with it It has two guided meditations, one on dialoguing with your body and a second one on loving your body

    I liked this book a lot It comes from aholistic approach to the body mind as a unit rather than the standard way of dividing them and speaking of one and ignoring the other A seminal book on this is Antonio Damasios s Decartes Error Decartes said I think, therefore I am and Damasio s book has been a classic in psychology for his idea that we are not brain thinkers who feel, instead we are body feelers who think This was chemically proven by Candace Pert in her book Molecules of Em I liked this book a lot It comes from aholistic approach to the body mind as a unit rather than the standard way of dividing them and speaking of one and ignoring the other A seminal book on this is Antonio Damasios s Decartes Error Decartes said I think, therefore I am and Damasio s book has been a classic in psychology for his idea that we are not brain thinkers who feel, instead we are body feelers who think This was chemically proven by Candace Pert in her book Molecules of Emotion I expect that this author Shapiro is well versed in Damasio s somatic marker body memory hypothesis and Pert s discoveries Shapiro s book is based on the body mind as one unit.She also seems broadly knowledgeable in psychology, eastern medicine, and other fields She mentions Jung, Dr Candace Pert, dream therapy, rebirthing, massage, meditation, ayurveda, reflexology, yoga, bioenergetics, acupuncture, yoga, Buddhism and Hinduism andShe has written several books, one is entitled The Metamorphic Technique and another book is in the Turkish language Her weakest area seems to be physiology, and I cite pages 177 and 178 about how the immune system works as one of the places where I believe she has minor mistakes.The book is in two sections Part One lays the foundation for the rest of the book in Part Two which goes over illnesses and analyzes them with body mind explanations Part One is Finding Order in the Midst of Chaos The chapters of Part One are Mind and Matter Unite The Language of Thoughts and Emotions The Language of the Body Listening to the Body Speak Curing a Symptom or Healing a Life Part Two contains thirteen chapters dealing with the entire body She goes over the body from head to toe, and analyzes its troubles with statements and dialogue questions based upon the concepts and thoughts presented in Part One Her body mind dialogues where one asks questions of feelings to the body mind to discover emotional components of illness seemed excellent and revealing.As an example, Chapter Seven is The Moving Parts Bones, Joints and Muscles She gives a good overview of how the way that we move our body when walking or standing expresses our emotional state, and then she individually analyzes the different illnesses of bones, illnesses of joints, and illnesses of muscles with overviews and dialogues to expose the emotional components In order to give the flavor of how the author discusses the many different illnesses, I choose here one of her shortest discussions gout, from Chapter Seven where she says Gout is caused by an accumulation of uric acid in the joints, often in the big toe Uric acid is normally removed by the urine, which is the body s way of releasing emotions that are finished with, or no longer needed, so they do not poison your system If you do not release these old emotions they begin to get stuck, to solidify and crystallize, causing rigidity and inflexibility Most of her discussions are much longer than this short example.This is an excellent book because of its unique enlightening body mind perceptions and I think everyone, even healthy people, would enjoy it It supplements understanding of medical diagnoses and it is also a sort of a preventive maintenance guide for keeping healthy

    I should have read this book years ago It may have made a difference in my health I always knew that the mind and body were connected I could feel muscles tense and knew that breathing was constricted I just never knew enough on how to change what was happening internally This book presents many questions to ask yourself to examine your feelings, but not enough on how to change where you are Certainly, as said, the most important element here is breathing I credit yoga with changing my br I should have read this book years ago It may have made a difference in my health I always knew that the mind and body were connected I could feel muscles tense and knew that breathing was constricted I just never knew enough on how to change what was happening internally This book presents many questions to ask yourself to examine your feelings, but not enough on how to change where you are Certainly, as said, the most important element here is breathing I credit yoga with changing my breathing and my living As a child, I would hold my breath when I was scared Sometimes I did pass out, which scared my parents However, it is yoga that has taught me different ways to breath to bring my mind and body back to where I want them Yes, the book also talks about stress taking a toll on one s body How a working mom, with two kids growing with their own issues, can handle all of the day to day crises, I didn t know., except to keep going Yes, meditation works, but it is also difficult to find the time to go inward What a surprise that many women in their 50s have thyroid issues, which Shapiro says comes from putting other people first and looking at your own needs last Teachers also, beware of thyroid issues Anyway, the book will affirm and help with what you know about your body Give it a chance Then, take a yoga class or something like that which can bring you down and center you The world is too much with us Wordsworth

    Required reading for a yoga training I attended I think the book has some valid points about the power of positive thinking as it relates to our physical and spiritual wellness and how the three mental health, spiritual health, physical health are all integrated and not separate from each other as our Western beliefs make us believe Where the book fell short for me was two aspects One was the testimonials Too many of the testimonials read like an excerpt from a tabloid magazine The seco Required reading for a yoga training I attended I think the book has some valid points about the power of positive thinking as it relates to our physical and spiritual wellness and how the three mental health, spiritual health, physical health are all integrated and not separate from each other as our Western beliefs make us believe Where the book fell short for me was two aspects One was the testimonials Too many of the testimonials read like an excerpt from a tabloid magazine The second aspect was relating some past mental event or non physical stress factor is causing say, my herniated disk That my herniated disk is caused by shouldering too many burdens at home and work and not being able to delegate Or a broken bone is an indication of a fractured event and not from falling off a stair for example As noted, there are some valid points, but the book lost me when it moved into diagnosis

    I never intended to read this book It was part of a collection of my mums which she passed to me one day as she realised I started readingI thought I d give it a try If you are a believer of controlling your own destiny and that you can manifest all that happens in your life then you should give this book a read I always understood we could achieve anything we wanted I didn t however, consider that we could also affect all which happens to our physical body.This book provides a refres I never intended to read this book It was part of a collection of my mums which she passed to me one day as she realised I started readingI thought I d give it a try If you are a believer of controlling your own destiny and that you can manifest all that happens in your life then you should give this book a read I always understood we could achieve anything we wanted I didn t however, consider that we could also affect all which happens to our physical body.This book provides a refreshing view on the way we live our lives and how we are so caught up in the everyday noise It proves how a lot of physical illnesses are preventable through a higher state of consciousness and self love.Give it a read, I think it is underrated I admit I skipped a fair few of the illnesses in part three as I didn t feel they related to me But it is a text I can always refer back to and have gained the knowledge I intended when picking it up.Thanks for reading,Jack

    I bought this as a required text for my yoga training class There were parts that were very helpful and other parts that felt anecdotal rather than supported.Still, a good resource to be aware of, especially if you are experiencing pain or symptoms without obvious cause.

    I have learnt from this book to identify the emotional side of a list of disease There are some questions that guide you to think how you feel I have a hard time to answer some of those questions However, I would like to go deeper in some of my analyzes So, this book gave me a good start to undertand how diseases and emotional problems are related But, I need to search further into some topics because that book was not deep enough It was a good start though

    I have autoimmune diseases, she actually states that my hands are clenched into fists because I want to hit someone, not because of arthritis She also states that most affected with arthritis were athletes who had outlets to channel their energies, but since retiring they have no where for their angry feelings to go so that is why our joints are attacked, swollen, painful.ummm, no That is just not how it works, I know this for a fact because, well, science.
