About the Author

Kalidasa is a yoga teacher and natural healer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has been a successful yoga teacher since 1980 working with thousands of people over the years. His ability is widely acknowledged among his many students and yoga teachers alike. He used his knowledge of the body to develop Self Adjusting Technique. This process started in 1993 and still continues as he finds more and easier methods to facilitate gentle adjustments. In 1995 he started studying natural healing, biochemistry, nutrition and Applied Kinesiology from a master healer. Shortly after he began his studies he began treating friends with surprising success. He considered this practice, but his results were such that his natural healing practice grew quickly. His healing ability is highly acclaimed by his clients and piers which include medical doctors, acupuncturists, homeopaths, nutritionists, chiropractors and others. You can find more information on his website at His site has many articles on natural healing, information that you can use to help heal yourself of various conditions. His goal is to make natural healing available to everyone at minimal cost. Kalidasa is available for phone consultations on a limited basis. Contact him through for more information.

More About the Author

My name is Kalidasa, or Kalidas, both work. It is a Sanskrit name meaning the one who worships the female energy that destroys the ego. Or something to that effect.

I am a long time yoga instructor and natural healer. I started teaching yoga in 1980 and have been doing healing work of one kind or another almost as long.

I love to study biochemistry and the human body. I suppose at this point I am somewhat of an expert.

The holistic healing work I do is based on Applied Kinesiology which uses muscle testing as a diagnostic tool. Unfortunately, muscle testing isn't always 100 percent accurate. But, it is accurate enough so that it has produced really good results for clients in my practice. So far I have been able to help people deal with everything I have come across.

Of course, I do backup my practice with practical biochemical information. I'm always reading the latest studies that have anything to do with the work I do to help people with their issues. And, I have written about some of this information.

As a yoga instructor I have spent many years teaching classes for many different ages and ability levels. I really like teaching beginners because I can make things very clear to them. Advanced people really like adjustments from me because I help them make subtle changes in their postures that bring huge results.

A couple of the Kindle books I have out are yoga classes. They have photos of the poses with great descriptions. At the end the photos are repeated so the class is easy to go through without any writing in the way.

I also studied Chinese internal martial arts from a world champion. This gave me the ability to see what is going on in a body in very special ways. It is because of this and yoga that I was able to develop unique ways to work with bodies.

One of the unique techniques I developed is a way to do adjustment without force so there is no cracking or pain. And, this is something that people can learn to do on themselves, a technique I call Self Adjusting Technique.

I decided to enter into the weight loss niche because there is a lot of great information about weight loss that isn't generally known. While most people know that it is impossible to lose weight without doing at least a little exercise and limiting calories, there are biochemical reasons that the body won't lose weight. This is actually really easy to fix once the chemistry is understood.

I hope you enjoy my books. Please leave comments and ratings if you do, it really helps them rank higher with Amazon. And, let me know if there are any other books you'd like me to write based on my expertise.

i have taken several falls over the past 12 yrs, i suffer from back pain daily.

i have had chiro. adjustments and massage ; the treatments relieved pain for
about 3 days. my health insurance will no longer pay for my chiro adjustments, i knew somehow i would have to manage my back pain myself. The price of this book is equal to 1 chiro adjustment. I am learning how to adjust my back myself and get pain relief and will save a great deal of money . I have had slews of test, x-rays and mri of my back; 2 drs. diagnosed High blood pressure caused by back pain, i have to take pain and blood pressure meds, before my last back injury 2011, i took NO medication.
As soon as i got my "self adjusting technique "book I started very slowly doing the procedures.....I felt relief of my pain quickly....i will read and study this book, and carefully do procedures.

I FEEL RELIEF FROM PAIN, it gives me hope and the power to control how much pain
i have to endure...A very good book for anyone suffering from back pain.

If you suffer from back pain and you don't know why it always hurts in just that one spot... this book provides techniques that could help you. I have rib subluxation which is when your rib goes in and out of joint (whack) and causes pain that seems like a tight muscle but never goes away. A few years agao I was working in an emergency drill as a medical team volunteer. We carried a body on a back board, very far, with too few people and I pulled ribs out of joint. I found out this is much more common than people realize by my own research and the help of multiple massage therapist. My primary MD poked around, gave me an x-ray to test for cancer (or give me cancer Ha!) and then sent me on my way.

Anyway, this book provided me with PAIN free ways to re-align myself and now I can relax even knowing it will happen again.
As to another review - if the book is expensive but it helped your pain, then you have gained back more than dollars.

This book works. I had a kink sleeping wrong and for the life of me can't get rid of an irritating pain. It's worth the price if it can help your body. A chiropractor adjustment will cost more than this book. I only did the neck and first rib adjustment with help of another technique from another book. It tells you the principles and you can apply it to most area. It's always best to rely on yourself if you can do it yourself. You don't have to go through the 2 times a week weekly plan that majority chiropractors try to get you to do. And it's tough to find a chiropractor that don't do that. Too much adjustment isn't good anyways. Best to stretch and exercise if your aware of which body part need the work. Otherwise you'll be dependent on others. Self care is always best and this book try to teach you that.
