Review: The cutting edge of medicine today is not to be found in invasive therapies like drugs and surgery. It is in the disciplines that used to be regarded as “soft” medicine: prayer, therapeutic touch, energy healing, acupressure, and alternative therapies. Overwhelming evidence from hundreds of scientific studies are showing that these safe, non-invasive approaches are often more effective than conventional medicine. While yielding dramatically better cure and longevity rates, they are also a fraction of the cost.
Two of the pioneers in the field, Dr. Norman Shealy, founder of the American Holistic Medical Association and world-famous neurosurgeon, and Dr. Dawson Church, one of the foremost writers and researchers on alternative health, and the editor or author of many books on the subject, present a compelling review of the scientific underpinnings of energy healing. They show how consciousness and intention are fundamental to an understanding of human energy systems, and tie the many therapies that affect that energy system into a coherent set of principles they call soul medicine.
