I so enjoyed reading this book. Francesca McCartney's writing style is very clear and the content very compelling. I appreciated how she began the book with a(very interesting)personal story. After just the first two chapters I realized that I was going to receive a HUGE amount of information in a very accessible format in this book. I can't imagine the process of distilling so much complex information into such an easy to read format. The endnotes and bibliography demonstrate the extensive thought and research that went into this valuable sourcebook.

I've read hundreds of books on Chakras and Energy Healings and this is the most informative, grounded and clear book I've ever seen. The books is well written, easy to understand and has so much practical information I find myself returning to it over and over again.

One of the highlights of my summer was serving as a teaching assistant at a workshop called "The Language of Intuition," at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York. The workshop, taught by Dr. Francesca McCartney, founder of the Academy of Intuition Medicine in Sausalito CA., was a sampling of the material in her book, Body of Health. I trained with Dr. McCartney and this review showcases her book which should be a foundation for anyone building a healthy, balanced, and fulfilling life

The major building blocks of developing your ability to listen to your intuitive intelligence are described in great detail, with exercises that move from theory to integration. Since all of you have worked with me, do you remember my focus on grounding from the first moment we begin? Body of Health shows you myriad ways to de-code what it really means to be grounded and how vitally important it is. Grounding to the earth is an integral part of the practice of living in health and balance. We are constantly exchanging energy and information, and an overload of this is called stress. It's an over used word, but the depletion is real and there are many ways to manage it. The author describes herself as an "energy technician," and my goal for you all is to have full toolboxes of resources for the inevitable challenges to your mental, physical and spiritual health. These are complex systems that make up the human experience and there is a beauty of enhancing wisdom through experiential exercises in the areas of your life force, aura, and chakra system. For those who want to start a meditation practice, there is a very comprehensive section on just how to do that.

I have client who, when asked to set an intention for our work together said, "I want to trust myself." How wise of her.

Format: Paperback
So many of us have clocked hours and hours at yoga classes, workshops, seminars, or at the gym. Sometimes we can't make it to class, and sometimes the need for centering arises suddenly, so here's a handbook to help you develop techniques to complement those healthy habits.

The ideas in this book helped me develop a personalized daily practice. I turn to it for inspiration and how-to's and depend on it to help me through my week whether I make it to my yoga class or not. Its many techniques and how to's help you use spare minutes throughout the day to develop your own health-giving and spirit-nourishing practices. It's all good.

Body of Health is a marvelous antidote to the stress of modern life. With insights into energy blocks and clues to open them, here is your opportunity to study and practice the medicine of the twenty-first century.

- from the foreword by C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD

Francesca McCartney has written a wonderful, clear, insightful book about Intuition Medicine. She is an excellent teacher with years of experience and dedication to bringing intuition into health care. Don't miss out on learning from her. Highly recommended.

~Judith Orloff, M.D.

Author, Positive Energy and Guide to Intuitive Healing

Skillfully lays out a practical path for cultivating your intuitive powers. . . Beyond the superb theory and methods, Francesca's personal story pulls you into your own intuitive depths. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

~Donna Eden

Author, Energy Medicine

Intuition is our birthright, and we can either honor or ignore it. If we choose to respect and develop this inner wisdom, our lives will be more joyful and fulfilled, and we can be of greater service to others. Francesca McCartney is a skillful guide in the task of refining this ancient way of knowing.

~Larry Dossey, MD

Author: The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things, Reinventing Medicine, and Healing Words

Dr. McCartney defines our bioenergetic nature and guides us to boldly explore what we intuitively know, yet only rarely dare admit. "Body of Health" acknowledges and embraces our entire self, going beyond philosophy and into the realm of lifestyle practice.
