The Other Medicine That Really Works: How Energy Medicine Can Help You Heal in Body, Mind, and Spirit by Heidi DuPree RN CTN is a profound and uplifting book that speaks about a holistic way of healing and transforming lives. The book speaks about energy healing grounded in traditions, and is something that has been in existence for a long time. The author witnessing the unfolding of another human being is indeed a very enriching experience to read, and through the book she guides readers to explore the nature of life and the lost knowledge of health and healing. The healing journey in the book provides insights about the mental, spiritual, emotional and physical well being that leads to living a fulfilling and enriching existence.
There is a lot from this book that can be incorporated into one’s life and put into practice without much difficulty. The case histories, methodologies, techniques, the author’s own experiences, and the truth that the power to heal and transform comes from within are also inspirational, encouraging readers to look into their lives and make the required changes. Embracing compassion and self acceptance are important tools on one’s journey to healing and recovery, and the author speaks about their importance in the book. The topic of Chakras is quite enlightening and informative and shows how energy systems determine the formation of our beings. This book encourages readers to try out new healing techniques like meditation, homeopathy and many other healing methods, and to find their own path to personal healing by choosing what suits them the best. Being a Reiki healer myself, I enjoyed this book thoroughly.
