Friday, October 1, 2010 SHARE More Sharing Beyond Biofeedback: How Words Can Help Children Heal (1783 views) Children learn who they are in the world via an organic form of biofeedback.

Sunday, August 1, 2010 (1 comments) SHARE More Sharing The Inevitability of Healing: Verbal First Aidâ„¢ for Recovery from Surgery and Illness (1864 views) What this means is that the images we hold in our minds, the beliefs we store in the deepest part of ourselves impact the way we heal in an immediate and palpable manner, not only on how we feel emotionally, but on how our cells behave, whether they adapt and grow or become inflexible and decay.
Wednesday, June 2, 2010 SHARE More Sharing The Vibration That Heals: From Verbal First Aid to the Power of Pure Music (924 views) The research is being conducted and the evidence is growing rapidly. Sound--not only moves us emotionally, but affects us at a profound, preconscious, cellular level.
Thursday, February 11, 2010 SHARE More Sharing The Right to Expect? (906 views) It is, or so we believed, our natural birthright. Birds did it. Bees did it. We did it. Just like that. In fact, most of the women visiting fertility specialists right now were afraid of getting pregnant and, for years, juggled IUD's, diaphragms, condoms, and pills to protect themselves from what they felt would be inevitable if they didn't cover themselves with creams and impermeable membranes.

This is still the sacred promise of every medical school graduate across the country as he or she accepts the diploma, the title and the rank of healer in our culture. It is the core of the Hippocratic Oath. However, in a world of unreasonable speed, in which new discoveries and new pharmaceuticals are being produced in measures of seconds, not years, it may be more than doctors can promise us anymore.
Friday, November 6, 2009 SHARE More Sharing Holistic Psychotherapy and Hypnosis: The Myth and The Magic (881 views) Hypnosis and holistic psychotherapy is a far more natural and almost "ordinary" process than we think. In fact, there isn't a day that most of us are not in some kind of trance.
Monday, October 19, 2009 SHARE More Sharing Words Are Medicine: Raising a Self-Healing Child (1556 views) When you use Verbal First Aid with your children, they are learning by your example to use it for themselves. The healing you facilitate in them by the words you use when they are hurt becomes a self-replenishing well of mental, emotional and physical resources they can draw upon for a lifetime.
