Format: Paperback
Erik Peper, Professor and Director of the Institute for Holistic Studies at San Francisco State University is an international authority on biofeedback and self regulation. He recently co-authored with Katherine Gibney and Catherine Holt, "Make Health Happen, a book essential for health care professionals and their clients in learning how to optimize self healing and wellness.
"Make Health Happen" provides necessary, theoretically grounded information for developing a holistic program. Chapters in each of the 4 sections progress logically and sequentially towards the learning of essential foundational theory and relaxation, imagery, and cognitive skills. Each chapter introduces and builds upon holistic concepts and strategies that are then reinforced with practice exercise sessions. Daily log keeping and group discussion formats are provided to further facilitate self awareness and experiential mastery of content. The ultimate goal is to develop ones own unique, meaningful, healing program towards wholeness. Nursing students have used this book's first edition (Creating Wholeness) as a main textbook for a university holistic nursing course; several students reported: "I now have a variety of ways to relieve stress." "This awareness has allowed me to intervene earlier and to stop some of the general overload." (Stetson, 1998)
Nursing students (in one holistic nursing course) quickly and successfully learned and applied the holistic, healing principles and methods into their own lives as well as with clients in various health care settings.

This book was written for a class, so I can see why it's structured the way it is. However, too much of the focus is on the "logs" IMHO. The dense paperwork seems to take the joy out of learning. This book has many great topics and is structured much better than the author's other book about cancer. (That book was a disjointed mishmash of repetitious meanderings for the first 100 pages.)

Topics That I Found of Interest in Make Health Happen:
Energy gains and energy drains - What's draining you of energy and what can you do to stop it.
Healing meditations
Relaxation techniques
Self-Empowerment
etc.

There were many practices missing as well as the thermometer card needed for one of the practices. Was not very helpful.

Format: Paperback
A book that is real as real gets, it uses case study examples from previous students. Erik Pepper, the author and an excellent teacher, weaves scientific research into this book that highlights the influence of individual responsibility on health. Make Health Happen is an excellent self help book-one which you will pass onto friends, family, and loved ones.
