Review

"Dr. Levy...uses mind-body medicine...not only because it works but also because the research is there to prove that it does." -- Jody Jaffe, Positive Health


"I have known Dr. Rick Levy and his remarkable work for many years. He is a careful, responsible, and compassionate therapist and healer. In his new book, Miraculous Health...he synthesizes science and mind to provide the reader with valuable exercises that promote the journey of healing. I highly recommend this book." -- Brian L Weiss, M.D., author of Many Lives, Many Masters


"Mind-body medicine is an idea whose time has come. Miraculous Health is an excellent guide to this field, particularly the use of hypnosis, one of the most misunderstood of therapies. No form of medicine which neglects these insights can be considered complete." -- Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

Format: Hardcover
I found this book in a book store on Feb 15, 2008. I had to buy it then, as I have been in a lot of pain. I started reading it that night. I did the "feeling energy" chapter right away and was feeling energy so quickly! A tingling, a warmth...it is hard to describe. It is called manipulating BioEM energy fields to heal physical problems. Just doing this for one evening took the edge off my pain right away. And I know pain; I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, a replaced right ankle and IBS. I have been doing this everyday since and am amazed how the pain and stiffness is going down, in only 12 days!!! I feel so much more hope than I have in a long time. Doctors don't have much to offer us in many illnesses, except for drugs, surgery, etc. Many doctors are missing the WHOLE picture, health isn't just about symptoms and treating the symptoms. I am thankful for Dr. Levy and other doctors like him who do see that we are more (at our core we are spiritual beings, but we "forget" this) and can heal, IF we do the work. We have to stop being lazy and expect Doctors to heal/cure us, they won't. Be proactive and put your health in your hands, you have that power, it truly is amazing. This book really gives us that opportunity. But you must be willing to do what he outlines and more, if you are not willing, then don't buy this book. It takes work from you and just reading it won't help you.

I am still working on the other areas of the book too. I am meditating, have been on and off for years, now that I know it helps pain, I will continue!
You can download the audios and put them on a CD or iPOD. I also know hypnosis works, I have done it in the past. But now I can do it at home with these audios.
Also I am writing my conscious assessment and looking for the mental causes.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Philip M. Hellmich on February 16, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Miraculous Health is a practical and powerful guide to getting and staying healthy using mind-body health tools. It integrates the latest of scientific research together with spiritual wisdom into simple, clear language, making it accessible to almost anyone. I particularly like the step-by-step, nuts-&-bolts approach Dr. Levy takes, going from an introduction to the field of mind-body health to giving tangible tools to be applied in daily life. The guided meditations I downloaded from the website are exceptional!! I've been listening to them, relaxing, letting go of stress & getting clear of life goals! I also like Dr. Levy's focus on helping people achieve their "noble ambitions in life," something the world can certainly use!

Format: Kindle Edition
As an M.D., I have the following thoughts to offer:

Western medicine has always changed with discovery, be it in mind-body medicine or otherwise. The first question is not how to change, but what is truth? The following points come to mind: Numerous researchers, including Bernard Lown, M.D. and Dean Ornish, M.D., have demonstrated how negative mental states such has stress predispose individuals to disease, and that correction of these states improve health (references 1, 2). A group in London recently showed that mental stress causes asymmetric brain activity that raises susceptibility to serious ventricular arrhythmias (reference 3). Therefore, by clinical experience, randomized controlled trials, and finally by steps towards elucidating the connections between mind and body, science appears to slowly be moving in the direction of acceptance and proof. In one study in Chicago, 96% of the surveyed physicians reported believing in the placebo effect, and 45% actually reported using placebos in their clinical practice (reference 4). If we can take the preceding evidence, remember science will forever continue to unfold truth, and allow ourselves to currently accept the connection between mind and body as true, then we can both continue exploration into the field and try to implement it in daily practice.

In this book, Dr. Levy brings to light the mind-body connection, and offers a number of easy ways to practice the functional parts of the connection to benefit. Examples include hypnosis, visualization exercises, and new exercises not previously encountered. Strengths of the book include his rational approach, the simplicity of his techniques, and, again, the originality of his ideas.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Tom McGee VINE VOICE on March 10, 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dr. Rick Levy writes well and Miraculous Health is an interesting read. He speaks about different levels of the mind--the conscious, the unconscious, the super conscious, and the universal super unconscious. Each level has a gatekeeper that one must learn to bypass to reach higher powers and enlightenment. The author provides a website with downloads with hypnotic aids to help the reader bypass the "critical factor/gatekeeper" to obtain greater life skills.

I was turned off by the time the author spent trying to convince the reader of his own incredible powers, abilities, and experience healing people in unconventional ways. I also found parts of the book too much to buy into.

Whether everything in this book is true or not is something the reader must make a judgment about. I found it entertaining and appreciate the exposure to conceptual alternatives to traditional medical treatment. I think it was a worthwhile read.
