From the Publisher
"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 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

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. Dr Kelly unpicks these challenges primarily through his knowledge of acupuncture, EFT, the chakra and meridian systems, and how using these techniques can complement the western training he received in London where he qualified as a doctor.
Given ANTENNA's reference to "Songs of our Cells" in the title I expected a bit more on the use of sound as a healing technique, and look forward to absorbing Dr Kelly's knowledge in this area as part of hopefully his next installment.
Overall, ANTENNA relays an inquisitive and engrossing account of one health practitioner's journey to better his ability as a healer, portrayed in a down to earth style, without the new age hype. Great value, highly recommended to readers interested in getting more out of their health professional, and those wanting to improve their overall quality of life.
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.

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.
