Eden (Energy Medicine
) conducts workshops and lectures on the ancient practice of healing the body via its own energy systems. The first two chapters of her latest book serve as a primer, introducing nine basic energy systems, including the chakras, the meridians and the aura. Eden explains how keeping these energy systems balanced and flowing can help prevent illness, promote well-being and aid the body in self-healing. She also notes that while energy healing has been labeled an alternative method, its influence and importance has been increasingly recognized by research scientists and mainstream physicians. Eden then delves into a fascinating chapter-by-chapter discussion of health issues of interest to women, ranging from hormones, menstruation, sexuality, pregnancy and fertility to menopause and weight management, with accompanying energy exercises related to each topic. Included are tips to relieve PMS symptoms and hot flashes, techniques that get sexual energy flowing and a variety of movements designed to maintain overall energy balance. Proponents of energy work will no doubt welcome Eden's new book, and open-minded readers unfamiliar with the concept of energy medicine may be lured by methods that are noninvasive, free of charge and freely available at one's own fingertips.
