About the Author

Richard Flook heads up the international training of META-Medicine(r). Since early childhood, after the divorce of his parents and subsequent death of his mother from metastasized breast cancer, he has felt a deep compulsion to find an answer as to why this disease struck down the most important person in his life. After the divorce, Richard and his two brothers were cared for by their father in the family home some 400 miles (600km) away from where their mother lived. He was only twelve years old when he experienced the horror of losing his mother and even though at a distance, he lived through the trauma of her struggle and then her eventual acceptance of death. It was on the day she died that he made the decision to try to discover a better way to assist people to heal. He knew intuitively that there was a connection between his parent's divorce, the massive distance separating his mother from her three boys, and the breast cancer. Although successful in business, the decision he made when he was twelve years old was still burning in the back of his mind. At age 30 he came across the basic theories behind META-Medicine but at that time he could not train or find other information because they were hidden and also only available in German. Until a chance meeting with Johannes Fisslinger, the president of the International META-Medicine(r) Association in 2004 gave him the opportunity to study and teach this material. Johannes, a native of Germany living in Los Angeles, California, wanted to spread word of the amazing discoveries of META-Medicine(r) and, with a skilled team of medical doctors and experts including Richard, they brought META-Medicine(r) out of secrecy and into the international arena. Since that time Richard has been involved in developing META-Medicine(r) worldwide, including introducing this groundbreaking material to Australasia, Europe, Scandinavia, North America, Iceland, Czech Republic, Japan, China, Russia and the Middle East. Richard is a pioneer of accelerated and advanced learning techniques. Not only is he one of the most skilled practitioners of META-Medicine(r) and NLP, getting incredible results with terminal cancer clients, he also works with everyday people, assisting them in transforming their lives at the deepest level. Richard is a native of the UK lives in Canada, near Toronto with his lovely wife Kristin and his newly born son Oliver.

I've read a lot of books on health but this one explains the connection between emotions and dis-ease.

I enjoyed the case histories, the new information, and Richard's thorough approach.

In the book they mention clearly the fact that this theory was invented by Dr. Hamer ('German New Medicine' (GNM)). That's all I wanted to add here.

For what it's worth: my girlfriend was diagnosed with malignant breast cancer in June 2009 and a mastectomy was adviced. We've discovered GNM just in time, found and solved her conflict and left the conventional treatment completely. As to this day she's doing great. We've also altered her diet (amygdalin, pancreatic enzymes, zinc, magnesium - in short: metabolic therapy).

Format: Paperback
META-Medicine is said to be a model for diagnosing disease. Well, we all know that diagnosis is useless without a related cure - who hasn't been given a diagnosis and then informed it is chronic (meaning "incurable but not - yet - deadly")? Pretty useless, really.

META-Medicine apparently can always uncover the real cause of health problems and the various phases that they create in the body. The book goes into awkwardly explained but interesting detail about various aspects, including examples of how rings that show up in CT-scans can be used to identify the types of emotional shocks and about organs affected by certain types of shock. The authors claim to be able to resolve these causes at a deep level.

This is a potentially wonderful subject but what a let down when you get to the end and realize the book has totally failed in the second part of its subtitle "how you can solve it using META-Medicine". The author claims "I know this [an incredible speed and depth of clearing] is achievable with META-medicine, NLP, Time-Line Therapy, EFT (including the sophisticated Matrix Reimprinting process) and the use of NES emotional unblockers."

Well, like lots of us I am familiar with, and have practiced, NLP, Time-Line Therapy and EFT and was expecting this book to take us to the next level. Unfortunately, unlike most books on NLP and EFT, this book does not provide any practical tools. Pretty useless, really.

Zero stars for usable information versus five stars for the fantastic potential = three stars in my review (which is MY opinion - if you have a different one, write your own review rather than objecting to mine).

Contrast this book's overall feel against this statement from "Treatment Essentials" by Sircus: ...

This book is a MUST READ for anyone exploring mind-body connections. Richard Flook, a Master Trainer in NLP, has helped to develop Meta-Medicine® a method of identifying and releasing the neuropsychological roots of pain, stress and distress.A Meta-Medicine® practitioner clarifies when and where in people's lives they were traumatized and how those traumas imprinted themselves in their bodymind to cause psychological and physical symptoms and diseases. Such shocks include the following elements: they are unexpected, dramatic and isolating, and the person has no strategy for dealing with them. Once having identified these crucial issues, a person may use any of a variety of techniques to release them, such as NLP, WHEE, EFT, etc.

What makes this approach and book unique are the brain scans which demonstrate rings in particular areas of the brain associated with the symptoms. For instance, a person with lung disease may demonstrate a ring in the area of the brain related to lung functions. This is very exciting, pioneering confirmation of the mind-body connection.

Right- or left-brain hemisphere functions may be affected by stressors. When a person experiences a major stress, this may block functions in one side or the other. When both sides are affected, symptoms are more likely to manifest. Making it a point to identify and clear symptoms related to each side of the brain and clearing both leads to rapid releases of the symptoms and illnesses.

I was fortunate to be able to work with Richard at the Healing the Healers Conference in Iceland in October, 2009. Richard helped a woman identify traumatic issues in her life that manifested in bodymiind expressions as a bipolar disorder.

This is great new reading information from the U.K. They are so more advanced than the U.S. And, are willing to look at things differently than the blind unwilling to investigate Dr's in the U.S. I've seen his videos and have taken Richards classes. His methods are proven by the people who walk away from his helping them. His book is what made me take a class from him. Outstanding!

The book is useful, but a bit wordy. If you are new to New German Medicine it may be just right for you. Dr. Flook does admit that Dr. Hamer's discoveries are the basis of Meta-medicine, which is a great improvement, now he can't be accused of plagiarism.

The book goes into reading brain CT scans, which other books on the same subject tend to avoid.

Dr. Flook does take it a few steps further than Dr. Hamer in dealing with epigenetic issues.
