9781577331162: Edgework: Exploring the Psychology of Disease: A Manual for Healing Beyond Diet and Fitness

Edgework Exploring the Psychology of Disease: A Manual for Healing Beyond Diet and Fitness Ronald L. Peters, M.D., M.P.H. Edgework provides a concise overview of the research on the mind/body, summarizing the essence of healing at the level of consciousness and guiding readers through the process with detailed exercises that make the concepts a personal reality. The shadow, or unconscious mind, contains all the unfelt fear, anger, sadness and other emotional pain we have experienced since birth. Throughout life, the shadow influences conscious choices in order to set up opportunities for feeling, owning and healing these emotional wounds long before they precipitate into the body. This approach provides a framework for inner healing that encourages use of the suggested techniques day to day, either to help in the treatment of an illness or to prevent disease in the first place. Edgework is for everyone who has dis-ease of any kind. It is especially for those who have serious or "incurable" illness, which can be a most powerful motivation to heal at the deeper, formative level of consciousness. Working on the edge is risky business, but the greatest adventure is self-discovery and the integration of mind, body and Spirit. Endorsements "Once you have chosen your genes (your parents), everything else in your life is the result of your choice of attitude. You can choose an attitude of health or an attitude of illness. Edgework: Exploring the Psychology of Disease takes you through the inner world to make wise and healthy choices. It is your prerogative. It is your responsibility." C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D. "The confluence of consciousness, emotions and beliefs is increasingly being shown by modern science to have a direct impact on both health and disease. Dr. Peters provides us with an overview of that research, and empowers us to do our own personal Edgework with a variety of self-care techniques that can greatly assist in the healing of our emotional wounds. Both brilliant and compassionate, this is a book that belongs in the library of everyone interested in the medicine of the new millennium." Larry Trivieri, Jr., author of The American Holistic Medical Association Guide to Holistic Health
