Editorial Reviews


“Conventional Western medicine is akin to a battlefield. Physicians aggressively fight disease; pharmacists synthesize ever more powerful chemical weapons; patients wage war on bacteria using arsenals of alcohol sanitizers. This approach is clumsy and heavy-handed, but it does work—sometimes. When it doesn’t, a radically integrative method may be called for. In Transforming the Nature of Health, Marcey Shapiro presents her holistic, highly effective approach, which is based on a recognition of the interconnectedness of all life and the incredible healing power of loving, symbiotic relationships.”
—Dean Radin, PhD, senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, coeditor-in-chief of Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing, and author of The Conscious Universe and Entangled Minds

“Throughout the pages of this brilliant and heartfelt book, Marcey Shapiro takes us on a transformative journey, giving us useful practices so we can grow and expand our perspective. She leads us on a treasure hunt as we view nature, events, and people in our physical and nonphysical realities from all directions, whether above, below, or beside us.”
—Marcia Emery, PhD, author of PowerHunch! Living an Intuitive Life and The Intuitive Healer
“This book is truly a holistic vision of healing. Marcey Shapiro has brought together all of the pieces of the puzzle into a provocative and interesting tour of the present healthcare landscape and drawn a map for navigating toward a new future. This approach to systems thinking is not common and therefore represents a bold and significant step forward in the process of building a new world.”
 John L. Petersen, editor and publisher of FUTUREdition and author of A Vision for 2012: Planning for Extraordinary Change

“A fascinating journey to move from dis-ease to well-being, from aloneness and separation to community and oneness. Marcey Shapiro looks with new eyes at the organisms that share ‘our’ bodies, proposing a model of peace in the realm of medicine and within each of us. She advocates a different understanding of illness. It is illustrated with intriguing stories from her clinical practice, where she uses tools of conventional medicine, science, and natural approaches. It is a refreshing read that contains profound insights and a deep spiritual message. Transforming the Nature of Health is sprinkled with very practical meditations and easy-to-follow advice that will change the way you think. A must-read for anyone dealing with a body that is out of balance either physically or emotionally.”
—Carol Sabick de la Herran, vice president of The Monroe Institute

“Marcey Shapiro articulates the perfect prescription for better health: focus on positive energy, forgiveness, and love and where appropriate utilize new technologies and therapies that harmonize with nature to restore balance in our bodies and our lives. She challenges the conventional thinking of modern medicine and invites a new perspective that will help transform health and health care.”
—Helen Gracie, cofounder of Scenar Health
