From the Publisher

"The Human Antenna is a fascinating exploration of the connections between body, mind, and spirit. No form of medicine can be complete that does not recognize these interactions, as Dr. Robin Kelly has admirably done." -- Larry Dossey, MD, author of >The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

"On a quest to be a better healer, physician Robin Kelly embarked upon an epic journey that transformed his patients' lives, his own life, and one that can possibly transform your life as well. Expertly weaving together traditional Western medical science, Eastern medicine's energy philosophy, and a dash of quantum physics, Dr. Robin Kelly concocts a powerful and wise prescription for self-healing and self-empowerment. Filled with astounding scientific insights, wit, wisdom, and heart, The Human Antenna is a delight to read." -- Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, cell biologist and best selling author of The Biology of Belief


More About the Author

The Human Hologram by Robin Kelly has followed The Human Antenna by winning Science Book of the Year at the 2011 US National Best Books Awards!

Robin Kelly has, for 30 years, integrated Western, Eastern and modern mindbody concepts within his medical practice in Auckland, New Zealand. A past and current co-president of the Medical Acupuncture Society (NZ) and a founding trustee of New Zealand's MindBody Trust, he studied Acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the 80s running teaching workshops for health professionals and doctors.

Since the 90's his overriding interest has been in researching the roles consciousness and quantum theory play in the deep healing process.

As a result, he has authored three books released internationally, Healing Ways - A Doctor's Guide to Healing (Penguin 2000), The Human Antenna - Reading the Language of the Universe in the Songs of Our Cells (Energy Psychology Press 2007), and The Human Hologram - Living Your Life in Harmony with the Unified Field (July 2011.) The Human Antenna was awarded Science Book of the Year at the 2008 US National Best Books Awards.

Over the past few years, Robin has introduced Energy Psychology techniques, alongside medical acupuncture, to his practice, and he regards this as one vital step in helping people regain full ownership of their healing. He lectures and runs workshops on the deep healing process, and the compassionate approach to health, both within New Zealand and overseas. He has given many radio and TV interviews over the past few years.

Robin is also a passionate singer/songwriter with 4 CDs of original songs released over the past 10 years. One album was nominated for 2010 Album of the Year by the US Indie Music Digest, and he was a runner up in Nashville's 2010 'Song of the Summer' contest.

He is married to Trish, a registered nurse and midwife, who helps run their home-based practice. They have three children - Sophie, Lucy and Toby, and one grandchild Pyper.

Dr Robin Kelly presents an intriguing mixture of eastern and western approaches to health, and how these seemingly divergent models are at times both necessary in the pursuit of wholeness and wellness. It is rare to find a practitioner trained in both disciplines, who can also both demonstrate and explain how these modalities overlap, and how manifestations of physical symptoms of dis-ease can at times have matching states of a psychological or deeper energetic imbalance located within the mind or subtle bodies. It is better still, to be able to read first hand the experiences of someone who has the ability and stamina to attempt treating such dis-eases in patients, drawing on both these modalities, and the relevance to recent findings in quantum medicine.

Dr Kelly's personal anecdotes are enthralling and useful in relaying to the reader how his journey has unfolded to date. The real understanding of the greater picture of what a HUMAN ANTENNA is all about came after reading the numerous stories of his patients peppered throughout ANTENNA. These stories helped me to appreciate more practically, how our feelings and perceptions of the more intense experiences in our life can end up influencing our body's systems - including the 'memes' inherited between generations. This blending of theory and practice can only be done by a true practitioner; someone at the coalface. It becomes pretty obvious early on from reading ANTENNA that Dr Kelly's experiences in the mainstream allopathic general practice business, hospices, and acupuncture practice has enabled him to have a pretty invigorating and robust view on the challenges facing people in managing their health.

Physician Robin Kelly could have simply accepted and practiced what he had learned in medical school, but his concern for his patients combined with a personal crisis brought about by what he ascribes to "thin-skinned human antennas" brought him a new perspective on the mind-body-spirit connection. It was from his perspectives of clinical practice and personal response to the stress of practice that he noticed what clinicians who take the time discern: physical illness and emotional upset are intertwined. Dr. Blake noticed how lung disease could reflect repressed grief and how heart diseases could have roots in blocked love and acceptance of self and writes, "Feelings...were closely aligned to being." He goes on to explain how you not only could fall more vulnerable to the toxicity of known diseases but also to the vast category of unexplained illness (chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia etc.) because "...those of us who are thin-skinned human antennas absorb a wide range of wavelengths and as a result our systems become overloaded."
Mindful of the importance of science Dr. Kelly goes on to explain how he conceptualizes our antenna qualities. He informs us that his country New Zealand shares with Australia the highest incidence of male suicide; that in a land of beauty, education and opportunity, men end their lives prematurely. He says that isolation and meaninglessness are the reason for these deaths and so he begins to address the need for concordance in the song of our cells and ultimately a resonance with the universe. The Human Antenna is a wonderfully in-tune book filled with diagrams, explanations, stories and wisdom. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This is a valuable addition to the growing stream of revolutionary books on holistic health care coming from medical doctors. They all start with the doctors feeling the same ache of knowing that the mainstream medicine they were taught to practice was not necessarily serving the best interests of their patients. Each of them finds his or her own path to discovering a way to focus on the whole patient - body, mind and spirit - and integrate other tools into their practice, like nutrition, energy medicine, guided visualization, and most importantly, taking the time to listen and understand the broader context of the patient's life.

In "The Human Antenna" Dr. Kelly anchors each step in the narrative of his own journey to integrative medicine in the growing body of evidence that we are energy beings who respond to the world around us in ways that are not explained by conventional medicine but rather by quantum science. Dr. Kelly offers lucid explanations of sometimes complex physical principles and overlays them on principles of Eastern medicine in practice for thousands of years. He shows how the work of pioneers like Bruce Lipton and Carolyn Myss illuminate the interplay between the emotions, the environment and the manifestation of symptoms in the body.

He goes through the energy centers of the body and describes the kind of emotional blockages that are often linked with physical problems associated with each chakra. He illustrates each with case studies, therapies and exercises to relieve the imbalance, and give additional tools and resources in the appendices.

This book provides a wonderful overview of the importance of mind-body medicine, and would be an excellent introduction to the field for professional and layperson alike.
