Sinopsis: While trying to console two young women whose mother was drowning in her own blood, dying of complications of the unneeded medical treatment he'd participated in, Dr. Brian Rees began to think "there must be a better way!" Have you ever had an operation or taken medicine that made you feel lousy? Would you be interested in an another approach if it could address your problems and make you feel better at the same time? In HEAL YOUR SELF, HEAL YOUR WORLD you can find out what's wrong with today's medicine and what you can do instead. Dr. Rees uses the oldest and most time-tested system of natural medicine on earth to teach people how to enliven the inner intelligence of the body to get well, stay well, and avoid having to go to doctors. * FACT: your doctor isn't trained to know anything about health * FACT: our current approach to prevention doesn't really prevent * FACT: sticking with only modern medicine will cost you and society pain and money * FACT: proven public health tools exist to prevent crime and to rehabilitate criminals, but politicians are afraid to implement them * MYTH: people can't postpone their own deaths * MYTH: you can't reverse the aging process or prolong life by mental methods (are you taking DHEA? wouldn't you rather be making it inside you?) Dr. Rees can explode myths from the alternative medicine side of the coin as well: * MYTH: the "relaxation response" works just as well as the Transcendental Meditation it was copied from * MYTH: you can't afford the luxury of a negative thought * FACT: beware of "positive thinking:" it can kill you * MYTH: vitamins are effective in getting you the anti-oxidants you need * MYTH: if it's in your genes there's nothing you can do about it * FACT: if you have cancer or AIDS, there are alternative practitioners you should definitely stay away from Brian Rees M.D., M.P.H. has impeccable credentials. He is a graduate of Tulane University School of Medicine, has a Master's degree in Public Health and is a board certified specialist in family practice. He also is the commander of a U.S. Army Reserve hospital unit. He has been the medical director of the Maharishi Ayur-Veda Medical Center in Pacific Palisades California since 1987.
From the Inside Flap: Can people cure themselves of cancer? Does our state of mind affect our health? Our immunity? Our very survival? Why do we suffer? And is there really anything we can do about it? These questions and others like them provoked Dr. Brian Rees to look beyond his standard medical training for a broader perspective. With medical anecdotes and fascinating stories from southern California to the U.S. Army, from Iowa to India, this book is the result of years of research and clinical experience in integrating the spiritual dimension of health with the conventional. Addressing both doctors and non-professional readers, Dr. Rees presents evidence that we are on the threshold of a paradigm shift in medicine similar to the jump physics made from Newton to Einstein. Further, the breadth of this new medicine includes the healing of communities, nations, even our entire world. Full of insight, this book bridges the gap between the objective approach of modern science and medicine, and the subjective wisdom of the Vedic tradition of India. Do we just "catch" diseases or are there things we can do to "avoid the danger which has not yet come"? Described in depth in this book are plenty of things we can do to take charge of our health, steps that can be both easy and enjoyable. An abundance of data now points to the roles of stress management, emotions, diet, even the biology of time, the rhythms within the body, in contributing to health or disease. And can we heal ourselves? Dr. Rees points out that although each of us is destined to die of something, we can learn from the experiences of those who have had spontaneous remissions of cancers and from the ancient and modern seers. From Heal Your Self, Heal Your World: "Faced with a terminal prognosis, one confronts one's mortality. If perception of Reality is clear enough... one knows that it is mortality that is unreal. Such a realization leads to faith, surrender, peace of mind. In such a state of body and emotions, when the outcome of cure is not so imperative, ironically, cure may occur. But cure is often incidental to the healing of spirit that preceded it." With humor and compassion, scientific fact and inspiration, this book takes us by the hand toward the transcendent.
