Book review

This book will empower you as a patient to seek out the therapies that will work best for you and offers a path to effective pain relief and sustainable health.

by Michael A. Jawer and Marc S. Micozzi, M.D., Ph.D

People process their feelings in different ways, and your emotional style is a fundamental aspect of who you are. It affects more than just your outlook on life; it can affect your well-being as well. Many chronic ailments are not the result of germs or genes, but are rooted in emotional biology.

The link between emotional type and health explains why modern medicine — which views treatment as one-size-fits-all — often fails to successfully treat chronic pain and illness.

Examining the interplay of emotions, chronic illness and pain, and treatment success, the authors reveal how chronic conditions are intrinsically linked to certain emotional types and how these ailments are best treated by choosing a healing therapy in line with your type.

Explaining the emotional ties behind the 12 most common chronic illnesses — asthma, allergies, chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, post-traumatic stress disorder, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis and ulcers —the authors provide an easy assessment survey that allows you to identify your emotional type, as well as the ailments to which you are susceptible.

Extending this connection between mind and body, they assess seven alternative healing therapies — yoga, acupuncture, hypnosis, biofeedback, meditation, guided imagery and relaxation techniques — and indicate which methods work best for each emotional type.

This book will empower you as a patient to seek out the therapies that will work best for you and offers a path to effective pain relief and sustainable health.
