"Body Electronics is a sophisticated discussion of the entire healing process. It is strongly based on – but goes gently beyond – Dr. John Ray’s powerful work, to a more rounded understanding of the meaning of ‘cure’ of body, mind, spirit. The powerful message in this book is that it is a total program to improve life function, love, relationships, and openness to all of life’s pains and joys."
-Gabriel Cousens, M.D., Director of Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, author of Spiritual Nutrition, Rainbow Green Life Food Cuisine, and Conscious Eating
About the Author
Thomas C. Chavez has been lecturing and teaching seminars on and facilitating Body Electronics (BE) groups in California, Oregon, and Washington since 1984. He was one of founder Dr. John Whitman Ray’s earliest students. His current BE community, a break-out group of Christ the Healer UCC the church he co-pastors with his wife, Gabrielle, has been meeting regularly in their home since 1996.
Chavez entered the world of active health care in 1975 as an Emergency Medical Technician, but soon involved himself as a student of message, Shiatsu, Herbalism, Back Flower Remedies, Nutrition, Shamanic exploration, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Ericsonian Hypnosis and Homeopathy. He became a practitioner of Homeopathic medicine in 1979, considered by many to be the most insightful and effective homeopath in the state of Oregon and has, since 1998, confined his homeopathic practice to the field of consultation for other health care professionals.
Chavez is the current president of the nonprofit, AMR’TA, an organization dedicated to exploring the boundaries of what is currently known about health, healing, natural, complementary, and alternative medicine. He is listed as a major contributor to the IBIS Interactive BodyMind Information System and is the past editor of Portland Reflections Quarterly Magazine and Resource Directory.

I've read lots of books and so I gave this book a go, didn't have much to lose.
This is hands down the best book I have ever read on health and healing in my life. The quality of experience, research, authentic proofs and sincerity in their quest to provide real healing is astonishing.
Body Electronics, as a methodology, is impressive enough. But the elegant nature in which it is presented, alongside all the material that Thomas Chavez has evidently gathered in his lifetime's work, makes for a read which I keep by myself at all times.
I buy this book again and again and send it to friends. It's a must have for anyone with a sincere interest in understanding natural healing and how the body indeed works.
Chavez was a student of John Ray, the brilliant healer who devised the original Body Electronics modality which was based on Ray's extensive research and experimentation with miraculous cures. It is a synergy of techniques with an emphasis on organic, chelated, colloidal mineral supplementation, enzyme intake and 'pointholding' which is a leap beyond accupuncture and accupressure with the goal of thoroughly dissolving the tiny bundles of crytals that form energy blockages and contribute to disease and discomfort on many levels.
Chavez pays admirable homage to Ray, having internalized his teachings completely, while leveraging his own extensive research, training, and experience in the world of Natural Healing as a classically trained Homeopath. He pulls together a vast and diverse body of knowledge that represents his very best attempt at formulating an ultimate healing protocol and lifestyle. Based on all the information I have personally been exposed to through my own passionate studies and practices, this 'very best attempt' is the very best I've ever encountered, beautifully and comprehensively communicated!
As soon as I received this book from Amazon.com, I opened up the book randomly to a paragraph about the healing effect of a Niacin flush on skin injuries such as bad sunburns experienced in one's youth. I then flipped to another random page and read about "blotting" one's teeth, a technique superior to brushing which very effectively cleans your teeth. I flipped to another part regarding the effects of herbs and herbal "remedies", then read about the success of a program that improves one's eyesight naturally, then I scanned through a collection of practical exercises and techniques for manifesting our intended goals that really made sense to me.
Another random flip had me reading about "holding time", an interaction between a parent and child that allows a child's stressful emotions and anger to de-fuse naturally in a circle of acceptance and love, encouraging a lifetime of natural, authentic, healthy emotional responses without all the ills that come from chronic emotional suppression through punishment and subtle guilt and control trips as most of us have experienced as the Western 'norm' in parenting.
I was only a few minutes into my preliminary explorations of Body Electronics and I was already completely inundated with fascinating new information I had never before encountered! I turned to my husband and exclaimed, "I'm SO glad I got this book!" Elegantly expressed concepts gave rise to instant insights, and I found myself already unraveling personal pain and suppression that sprang from my own childhood just as it did for my parents and grandparents.
This book draws on Chavez's many years of living and practicing Body Electronics, which he very effectively shares with his readers, so that they too can see their way to working out their own, constantly evolving cure, which in turn positively effects all within their sphere. Chavez is richly generous with his knowledge, obviously tapping into the mindset of his intended readership and presenting his case with clarity and inspiration. He hands us a pragmatic and usable roadmap for our own personal journey to perfect health, without excluding anyone by being overly spiritual or to far "out there". The more I studied the illustrative examples, the more I began to understand the finer points of the healing process, the multiple, sequential levels of vitality and it's opposite, the levels of consciousness that set the tone for our overall level of health, and the dangerous business of unaccepting attitudes and suppression of symptoms.
As I began the fascinating journey of reading the book cover to cover, I was delighted by Chavez's truly artful way of inviting the reader to look, really look, at many of the basic agreements that we as humans unwittingly buy into from birth. He points out the "Off-Management" behaviors we have inherited, all the ways we ineffectively deal with life's challenges, from the way we parent, to the way we eat, to the way we express emotions and deal with stress, to how we navigate tricky family, group and societal dynamics. Then he offers "On-Management" methods and techniques that have proven very effective, whole ways of thinking that had never occurred to me before. I have seen many authors attempt to describe similar concepts, but the way Thomas Chavez has put it all together rings true and clear. Reading this book was truly a life changing experience, a real gift!
