In The Creation of Health two experts in very different fields combine their knowledge of the human body and spirit and together give an explosive and, ultimately, common- sense breakdown of the diagnosis and treatment of specific illnesses, each drawing on their own skills in order to encourage a balance between emotional and medical care.
Caroline Myss is an expert in the field of intuitive medicine and, although she herself finds it difficult to explain exactly how she works, the evidence given in case studies proves that she indeed has a knowledge of the human condition which can only be of benefit. Her introduction to intuitive medicine, its history, method of diagnosis and relationship to traditional medicine, is followed by C. Norman Shealy's medical accounts of particular diseases or ailments which are then combined with Myss' insights into the physiological causes through her corresponding energy analysis.
The Creation of Health addresses the link between healing and emotion and encourages a wider understanding of the emotional and physical needs of the human being, with each author supporting the other with evidence of successful diagnosis and treatment by a combination of traditional and intuitive medicine.
Anyone who has ever doubted the virtues of an holistic approach to medicine should read this important book, providing as it does a well-researched, in-depth study of the emotional, physiological and spiritual responses that promote health and healing without once dismissing more conventional approaches and thereby encouraging a closer relationship between medics, healers and, most importantly, the patient. --Susan Harrison
