Book Description Publication Date: September 1990 This is the long-awaited, expanded, redesigned, reader-friendly Second Edition of the best-selling, critically acclaimed first book describing the language link between mind and body. This Second Edition contains 100 extra pages of information plus an extensive resource list, index and instructions for 53 self-help experiences. Watch what you say! is not just a phrase for the children in your life. This book thoroughly examines the link between language and disease. Levine teaches "Verbal Hygiene" to avoid dis-easing language that sabotages wellness. She traces common phrases like "that breaks my heart" and "it's a pain in the butt" to the underlying beliefs on which they are based and the symptoms they cause. Readers learn to decode physical sensations and discover their underlying Core Beliefs and Seedthoughts. Levine writes from her own experience having brain surgery to remove a tumor AND includes information from experts in psychology, religion and medicine plus an article by Bernie Siegel on Dreams And Drawings. Levine shows that our physical symptoms may result from using dis-easing language. AND she teaches readers how to use language to EASE symptoms and improve their health and well-being.

From the Publisher:

A very heart-warming positive and exciting book! I highly recommend it as must reading for every person or family with a chronic illness no matter if it's cancer multiple sclerosis arthritis etc.
-Susan L. Engle-Arieli M.D.

Not only is it clearly written and a delight for a critical ex-medical editor to read but it contains a wealth of practical ideas for healing and the self-help directions for carrying them out.
-Robert A Barrett Ph.D.
