by Bernie S. Siegel, M.D.—
In 1979, Siegel, a successful surgeon, took a class from Elisabeth Kübler-Ross that focused on crayon drawing for healing, especially for patients facing life-threatening disease.
Siegel incorporated these techniques into his practice — many of which were scoffed at by the medical community.
But his Exceptional Cancer Patients “carefrontation” protocol facilitated healings (often deemed miraculous) and attracted attention.
He discovered and shared the fact that while patients might need antibiotics, surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, their bodies also want to heal.
He found that this innate propensity could be aided by unconventional practices, including drawing, because drawing produces symbols often representing the subconscious.
The book shows how to interpret drawings to help with everything from understanding why we are sick to making treatment decisions and communicating with loved ones.
All those facing ill health and those caring for them personally and professionally will welcome these hands-on, patient-proven practices.
