Healing Key #10: Making a Choice to Heal and Be Healthy


Healing starts when motivation kick-starts the healing process A few years back, I ran into Howard Jacobson by chance one afternoon–he had been leading a seminar on time management I had joined. He had a terrible case of the flu, and was due to present at Kripalu the next day (he has co-authored whole food…

Healing Key #9: Finding the Time

One of my clients called me one day to discuss her pain.  She had been through my “11 Paths to Self-Healing” course, and I asked about a couple of practices that were ideal, and how she was doing with them. She replied that they were good, but she didn’t have time. I shared that this…

Healing Key #8: Meditation

Meditation is not what you think (it’s so much more) Meditation is often misrepresented in the West as a form of relaxation. Certainly relaxation is important. But as Deepak Chopra notes, the ancient yogis who invented meditation weren’t trying to relax—they were pretty relaxed already. Nor is it, as many people think, about stopping your…

Healing Key #7: Understanding Levels of Being

What does it mean to “Raise your Vibration”? If you truly started vibrating at higher frequencies, you’d simply vanish from physical sight (just the laws of physics) What you really mean by “raising your vibration” is that your levels of being are vibrating coherently, allowing a clear channel of energy from higher to the “lower”…

Healing Key #6: How to Understand Energy

When we clarify confusion about “energy,” we help healing. The central part of energy healing is, of course, the energy—but this is an area often poorly understood. And for understandable reasons. For example, in China, Chi Gong (qigong) refers not to a group of breathing exercises, but to mastery of one’s chi. Why the confusion?…

Healing Key 5: Self-Healing and a Path to Happiness

Everyone needs some knowledge of how to practice self-healing. Even your medical practitioner gives you instructions about what to do at home. Whatever your treatment, you’ll need to know what to do when you’re on your own. In terms of pain, you need something to do instead of reach for another drug – something that…

Healing Key 4: Movement and Exercise are Crucial to Healing

Time to move from diet to other healing keys — but this is the one that makes diet and nutrition work. The most important nutrient is oxygen. A sedentary lifestyle and poor posture can combine to interfere with how much oxygen is delivered to the lungs, limit blood flow to the muscles (contributing to fatigue),…

The Twelve Keys of Health and Healing: Keys 1-3

First, we have to distinguish between the “take something” or “do something” prescriptive drug-like approach typical of western thinking about healing and a truly comprehensive approach. Specialized pain clinics have only a 58% success rate (which includes drug therapy), because they are still just trying things in hopes of hitting “the one” that works for…

So–What Works?

Unfortunately, the studies on alternative medicine and holistic healing are generally in a dismal state. Many are done with small samples (13 in one study), or based on subjective observation (the mice seemed less anxious), done by a group looking to show why its own modality is valid (versus independent verification), done by a researcher…

Placebos—The Promise and the Problem

Anything that seems like a viable treatment or a drug, but doesn’t actually contain or offer specific therapeutic benefit, can work as a placebo. Interestingly, though, there can still be measureable effects. WebMD shares that research on placebos has focused on the mind/body connection. When told a fake “drug” was a stimulant, study participants exhibited…
