5.0 out of 5 stars It Works!, November 18, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Healing Code (Hardcover)
A friend told my son about "The Healing Code" book and he ordered two copies from amazon.com, one for the friend and one for me. It was perfect timing. I had just read "The Biology of Belief" and "The Spontaneous Healing of Belief," which were both good, but neither one had the comprehensive system "The Healing Code" book advocates. The friend said, "The code is on page 221, start there..." I didn't. I began at the beginning. Although I have read many self-help books, I have never read one that puts the science behind the body's stress mechanism in such easy-to-understand layman's terms. I had some memories and connections surface even before I got to page 221! The healing code will work...no matter what emotions, events, or memories for healing we list in the blank. What we are doing is commanding our subconscious mind to search the files at the cellular level and bring up whatever needs to come to the surface to relieve our stress and promote healing. That's it in a nutshell. It works! Having to know this, that, and the other thing, before we do the code is rubbish. There is nothing about it that we can control. The subconscious mind knows what it needs to do. We just have to do our part and let the subconscious mind take care of the rest. Thanks to everyone on The Healing Code team.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extreme Cases Map the Stress of the Adoption Experience, September 1, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Adoption: Uncharted Waters is a must read for adopted persons and their families who really want to understand the nature and breadth of adoptees' emotions toward their birth families and their adoptive parents. The cases cited by Kirschner are extreme. All have committed serial murder or parricide.

Like a scuba diving instructor, author and psychologist David Kirschner dives into the depths of the subconscious ocean of these individuals to describe and map the inner stresses and strains placed upon them by the adoption process. It's a fascinating journey.

Dr. Kirschner provides a realistic view of the tide of anger rising up when a child is not able to develop trust within the adoptive family. He points out how sealed records can actually thwart the new bond between the adoptee and his or her adoptive parents. When parents and society tell an adopted person that their records will always be sealed and that they will never be honest and authentic, it can breed an anger that knows no bounds.

While few adoptees kill, nevertheless, Dr. Kirschner's work is a wake-up call that adoptees' emotional lives are at stake. Whatever degree of stress the adoptee feels will manifest as a physical symptom and/or disease of some sort. At a time when our health care system is out of control and breaking down, we can't afford to ignore the preventive care that every adoptee needs: Honesty! Adoption is not a non-event. It can have lifelong consequences.

We in the adoption community owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Kirschner for bringing this subject to our attention in such a readable and interesting format.
