Who can help asking "Why?" when they develop a disease? According to theologian and "medical intuitive" Caroline Myss, Ph.D., and co-worker C. Norman Shealy, M.D., who is a physician, neurosurgeon, and expert on pain and stress management, the answer goes further than a medical explanation. The Creation of Health explores the emotional, physical, and spiritual patterns that form health and the stresses that can cause disease.
Myss identifies eight dysfunctional patterns that lead to illness. Being aware that "negative attitudes create negative responses within the physical body" allows you to make changes toward health after identifying your emotional, psychological, and spiritual stresses. The most interesting chapters discuss specific diseases in terms of lifestyle factors, stress, and psychological patterns and energy factors, with case studies. A heart attack, for example, is "an explosion of energy attempting to break down an emotional barrier ... caused by warehousing fears and anger," says Myss. The authors alternate, rather than co-write, chapters and topics, so you know whose perspective you're reading. The theoretical sections are not easy reading, but the insights you can apply to your own health make the work immensely worthwhile. --Joan Price

Written with Dr. Norman Shealy, Ms. Myss fleshes out the popular theory that 'we create our own reality'.
The Creation of Health: The Emotional, Psychological,and Spiritual Responses that Promote Health and Healing documents the colaboration between Norman Shealy, MD, and Caroline Myss, a medical intuit.
Myss diagnosised Shealy's patients long distance via telephone. With only the patient's name, age and permission, Myss could read their body's medical and energetic history. The Creation of Health explores dozens of cases which strongly indicates that, indeed, "our biography is our biology".
Jane, for instance, suffered from rheumaoid arthritis. Her husband of twenty-eight years had been unfaithful from the start.
Though she found out when her third child was a toddler, she decided to stay in the marriage until the children were grown. By that time he
was serving in Vietnam. How could she divorce him
then? That is when she developed her disease. By the time he returned safely, she was so handicapped that she believe she didn't have
the physical capacity to divorce. "I kept saying to myself, 'if it weren't for this S.O.B., I wouldn't have this disease." Through
Caroline's intervention, she realized that it wasn't her husband that created her disease. It was her attitude towards him that was the
Hortense is another example. This forty-eight year-old woman felt she had very little in her life. Unloved and uncared
for, Hortense felt fated to loneliness. She developed breast cancer. Later, metastasis to the liver was discovered. Myss noted that the
liver is in the area of the third chakra, which is the center of a person's personal power. The liver, charged with cleansing the blood of toxins, also represents the seat of emotional cleansing.
When Hortense looked towards her future and saw only emptiness, she "could no longer cope with keeping her emotions positive, or cleansed, by herself." The experience of cancer, however, spurred her desire to live and stimulated the possibility that there were other choices she could make in her life style.
Myss puts forth a convincing case concerning control issues and stroke victims. People who need to dominate find it difficult to trust others. This lack of trust creates negative stresses in the body which in-turn triggers emotional charges such as frustration, rage, anger and fear. "The individual is challenged to
remain in control while these high-voltage currents of electrical energy are racing through the body, like the explosive energy of a
geyser waiting to burst through the earth." Often postponed with alcohol, drugs, or outbursts of temper, this behavior commonly leads to stoke.
Myss's first book wets the appetite for more understanding of how each of us can take charge of our life and create health.

The only reason I was short on the stars is because the amount of errors in this edition drove me batty. Sorry, but I prefer not to have to stumble upon typos by a publication while reading!
