A comprehensive reference and healing tool to address the emotional and psychological causes of illness

• Uncovers the conflicted conscious or unconscious feelings, thoughts, and emotions at the root of nearly 900 ailments and diseases

• Details a unique Integration and Acceptance Technique for accessing information through the heart and thereby starting the healing process for emotions and feelings

• Provides positive affirmations to effect change for each ailment and disease

What if your body used a secret language to talk to you? What if an ailment or illness was your body’s way to shout for help, to make you understand that you need to change your thoughts, emotions, feelings, and behaviors? Your body wants you to become aware of the stress that you carry, conscious or not, so you can release unmanaged past and present emotions and the physical complaints that accompany them.

Compiling years of research and the results of thousands of cases he encountered in his private practice and during workshops over the past 30 years, Jacques Martel explains how to read and understand the body’s language of disease and imbalance. In this encyclopedia, he shows how body language reveals specific thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are at the source of nearly 900 different ailments and diseases. The author also details his Integration and Acceptance Technique, which enables healing information to bypass the brain and connect directly with the heart. This technique disables the source of the conflict, conscious or not, that could be at the root of an illness, behavior, or condition and improves the chances of true healing.

This comprehensive manual offers a tool to help each of us become, to some extent, our own doctor or therapist, get to know ourselves better, and recover health and well-being physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. For practitioners and therapists, this remarkable reference tool provides invaluable insights and prompts for healing.

I am not sure that I believe the explanations of the author for every single disease, but some insights are useful anyway and I can always mix it with "regular medicine". Non sono sicura di condividere le spiegazioni dell'autore per ogni singola malattia, ma quel che é sicuro per quanto mi riguarda, é che alcuni insight mi sono stati particolarmente utili e posso sempre "mischiarli" con la "medicina regolare". THANKS NETGALLEY FOR THE PREVIEW!

Very informative. Good book to have on hand. Ailments that are covered is well presented along with various treatments. I will definitely be trying a few of the suggestions. Thanks to Netgalley, the author and the publisher for the arc of this book in return for my honest review. Receiving the book in this manner had no bearing on this review.

This should be on the shelf of every home in 2020 and beyond. I suspect a lot of us 'know' when we are ill or with dis-ease...something more is going on. Martel excellently breaks down what is going on in our body when we exhibit certain physical symptoms. Excellent and essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how their body works and responds to stress and complex emotional issues. Can't rate this highly enough.

This is a brilliant reference book. I have a lot of issues, due to autoimmune conditions, and sometimes it is nice to just be able to research yourself, to see more about what is happening and if there is anything you can do to make life a little easier. This book is a great`t guide, with lots of detail and great information.
