This is my sixth copy of Heal Your Body; three of them I've used to dog-earred states by referring to them constantly, others I've given away. I have recommended to many people--who have done so--that they obtain a copy of it. The information contained within its pages is simple and to the point and is useful when identifying what issues a person needs to fully acknowledge when a physical dis-ease manifests. If you are about understanding your life, your (or someone else's) illnesses/maladies and wish to work through and heal that which has occurred, this is a simple book to use and phenomenally inexpensive. This book, in conjunction with "You Can Heal Your Life"--also by Louise L. Hay--is powerful stuff. Be honest with yourself and get to the root of what you need to face to evolve and grow!!! The entertainment value of this book is how much you light up when this all starts to make sense!

"You Can Heal Your Life" is all about using your thoughts to fix the problems in your life. What kind of problems? Well, the book specifically looks into healing some pretty major life areas: relationships, work, success, prosperity, and your body. But wait a minute, did I say the book is using thoughts to heal your body? What's up with that? Is that even possible? Well, after reading this book, I think in many cases, yes, it is possible..........While I think it is the way to go to treat things such as an acute appendicitis with surgery, fractures with a cast, and pneumonia with antibiotics, there are many conditions where conventional medicine blatently falls short. Of course I'm talking about health problems such as migraines, backaches, or stomach ulcers- you know, those kinds of nagging disorders where we all know that stress/mental processes DO play a role. But while few would argue that psychological factors can cause an ulcer, what about more serious conditions such as, say, arthritis?..........Well it may not be too far fetched. Consider this. One study of 1,198 subjects found that only 56% of men with SEVERE knee arthritis had any pain (Lawrence 1966). Another study X-rayed 84 seventy-nine year-olds and 76 eighty-five year-olds and found that only 43% of them with SEVERE knee arthritis had any pain complaints (Bagge 1991). There are plenty more examples in the scientific literature, but obviously there two alone show us that there is NO clear-cut association between severe knee arthritis and pain..........ON THE OTHER HAND, when one looks at the relationship between psychological variables and knee arthritis, one does see a clear association. For instance, one study looked at 65 patients (ages 55 to 87) with hip and/or knee arthritis. X-rays, pain, depression levels, anxiety levels, coping styles, and functional impairment were all assessed. The findings? Researchers discovered that the severity of one's arthritis showed little relationship to pain, BUT, psychological variables were strong predictors of who had pain and how impaired they were (Summers 1988)..........Along the same lines, Salaffi examined 61 women (ages 51-79) with knee arthritis. Here again, results showed that how disabled someone was, was more related to psychological variables than how bad their knee looked on an X-ray film. Interestingly, both anxiety and depression WERE important predictors of pain (Salaffi 1991). Any one conducting a literature review on Medline will find more such examples IF you're looking for them. While I used knee arthritis as an example, there are MANY more studies on other health problems with similar findings..........All of this should be causing us to raise an eyebrow. The literature is telling us that it is far from being clear cut that things like bad knee arthritis ALWAYS mean pain. And the research is also giving us clues that the mind and our thought processes definitely play a role. So the question now becomes, if bad thought patterns can play a role in health problems such as arthritis, why not in other diseases such as cancer, as the book suggests?..........You be the judge. I found that the main value in this book was getting me to look at how our thinking does influence the functioning of our bodies- as well as our life in general. Note that I'm NOT saying that you can think yourself well all the time either..........Remember that while Louise Hay did change her thought patterns and was cured of cancer, she has also written that she used other alternative treatments as well, such as foot reflexology and colon therapy (Chapter 16). Therefore, my advice is to look at ALL the options when dealing with a health problem, one MAJOR one being changing your mental patterns (which is the what the book does a nice job of addressing). And for this reason, I can recommend this book to anyone who needs physical healing or otherwise. Also recommend "Finding Happiness In a Frustrating World." Thank you Louise Hay!

This is great because there is a cd included that you can listen to in the car. Much better use of your time than listening to the radio.I looove Louise Hay's simple, yet powerful message about the power of words. Granted, as a Christian, I don't agree with all of her concepts, like reincarnation, but it would be a shame to completely dismiss all the good things that you can get out of positive affirmation. Anytime I have to buy a gift, I give out this book/cd. I think it's about the best thing.

Terrific addition to my Grandfather's Louise L'Amour collection! He has all the full length novels and I was looking for something to add to them that he would enjoy. I gave it to him for a 97th birthday gift. He loves it! There is a series of these short stoy books, so I have furture gifts to complete his set! Great choice for everyone.

This is one of my favorite books!. I'm a Louise Hay fan anyway and grateful for her most helpful, easy to understand guidance. The content is simple to comprehend, offering tools that you can easily and effectively apply to your daily life with profound results. But, the added benefit of this "Gift Edition" over the basic copy for a few dollars less, is the incredibly beautiful illustrations that are so rich in color from front to back cover on thick pages that feel waxed. I was most disappointed when I lost my first copy that was a gift from my sister and I was like a kid on when my replacement arrived. This book offers sound guidance and a visual and tactile feast for the soul. A must self-help "Life 101" book for everyone!.

One of the best books I have ever read. After my Son, favorite Aunt, and my Mom all died within 2 yrs. I was so overwhelmed, to say the least. A friend bought me this book it helped me more than anything. Now I make a little gift for my grieving friends, giving this book, a soft throw blanket, kleenex, & cuddly warm sox. It is wonderful to know my loved one is not gone they are just on the otherside happy, in a fabulous loving enviroment.

Louise Hay is my hero. Her story is amazing, and she helps so many people. The book is an easy, valuable read, and it can be used as a reference book for life. The movie on DVD is good for those who have never heard of Louise Hay. I think everyone should own a copy of You Can Heal Your Life! :)
