Editorial Reviews

Review

“The Energy Prescription integrates the best of Alternative Medicine with the mind-body traditions of indigenous wisdom. A practical manual for anyone who knows that our energy connection must be monitored and nurtured consciously.”--James Redfield, author of The Celestine Prophecy

“In The Energy Prescription, Connie Grauds shows how to get back on track to live a vital and fulfilling life. Taking wisdom from ancient shamanistic approaches, she shows how to heal such common and persistent problems as chronic fatigue, depression and anxiety by helping us connect to the deepest parts of ourselves.” — Carol Adrienne, Ph.D., author of When Life Changes, Or You Wish it Would

"Connie Grauds has a most intriguing perspective on health and healing: trained as a pharmacist, she has spent years studying with a shaman in the Peruvian Amazon. As such, she offers interesting insights into treatments for problems like depression and insomnia, ailments that she terms "energy leaks."  I recommend this book for anyone interested in holistic healing."–Mark Plotkiin, President, Amazon Conservation Team and author of Tales of a Shaman’s Apprentice

Format: Paperback
Connie Grauds continues to be one of the most insightful and sensitive writers and practitioners of our day. In "The Energy Prescription" the pharmicist and Amazon trained shamana uses her unique "dual process" to give us new understandings and approaches to age old problems such as anxiety, depression, insomnia and sexuality.

Written from the heart yet appealing to the brain Connie's balanced approach using the wisdom of the ancient shamans and advances of modern medicine is both thought provoking and reassuring.

The perfect practical sequel to "Jungle Medicine" you will be compelled "to find this same 'energia espirita' in nature where you live."

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By 60+ year old woman on October 18, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is one of the very best books I've read in the area of health and spirituality. It's easy to understand, well written, and puts together information you can find in pieces in many other places or verify from other sources. What appeals most to me personally is the spiritual core which is not "religious", which she integrates with immensely practical health practices involving "breath" "water" "relationships" "nature" etc. The concept of "susto"--a fear-based state of being--as the source of energy depletion makes complete sense to me. And she suggests many ways to get out of that state into what she calls "sustainable being."
