About the Author
Dr. Frederick Bailes (1889-1970) of Los Angeles, Calif. was among the most popular and important teachers of the Science of Mind. Dr. Bailes served with Science of Mind founder Ernest Holmes as Assistant Dean of the Science of Mind Institute in Los Angeles. He also headed the largest Science of Mind church of its day. In addition, Dr. Bailes was an accomplished metaphysical healer, having healed himself of a so-called incurable disease, using the very technique Treatment that he explains in these Lessons. The Science of Mind philosophy, says Dr. Frederick Bailes, is not a few psychological tricks; it is a life to be lived.

The basic premise of the book is that healing is natural. When you cut a finger or sprain a muscle, the body's intelligence automatically acts to cause healing and recovery of that cut finger or sprained muscle. So there's nothing miraculous about healing, it's a very natural phenomena. What's unnatural is sustenance of a diseased condition. According to the author, a majority of diseases are caused and sustained by harboring emotions like fear, worry, anxiety and anger on a consistent basis. The immune system gets weakened by such negative emotions thus making a person vulnerable to diseases and slow to recover. According to the author, when a person finds effective ways to resolve the root cause of the emotional stress and keeps returning to inner calm and joy, everyone can heal and regain perfect health. This message resonated well with me.
Many people today focus exclusively on diet or juicing as an alternative to mainstream medicine. While diet indeed is helpful, it's efficacy is limited when ones thinking is dysfunctional and causes emotional stress. The first priority is to fix the dysfunctional thinking and get the ego out of the way of universal mind. The universal mind (powered by spirit or the true Self) has the intelligence to digest food, pump blood, make all the organs work, etc, and is already in the constant process of moving the body towards perfect health and healing. All that is needed is to get out of the way of the universal mind (by removing emotional stress) and let the natural process of healing reach its full potential. That said, an expert carpenter is only as good as the quality of wood you supply to him. Similarly, although the universal mind only wishes to recreate a perfect body, it does so from the ingredients we supply by putting different groceries into our mouth. So eating healthy food, like juicing and veganism are not without merit. Yet there are many cases of healing when people have been treated just by mental/spiritual healing without any modification in diet. Diet, hence, is only of secondary importance. The universal mind will break down the food and produce the necessary chemicals it needs for healing and recovery from everyday groceries you put in your mouth. Primary importance is to resolve thoughts that cause anger, worry, fear or anxiety.
Most modern medical doctors are unfortunately poorly educated on treating patients. It's a pity that modern medical education is focused on gathering information on body's reaction to chemicals instead of focusing on self-knowledge and the connection between mind/body. Instead of resolving the emotional stress in patients, they often add to the stress by causing fear by labeling certain conditions as incurable, and by administering heavy doses of medicines with heavy side effects. The discoveries made by medical science would indeed be helpful if they are used properly in conjunction with mental/spiritual healing.
Overall I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It is a must read for those who wish to understand and experience healing and health.
It was the beginning of a wonderful journey that brings peace and joy to my life every day. It's inspirational...life changing.
The insights you gain from this text will inspire you to read other books on the subject, and your intuition will lead you to the right books for you.
"Your Mind Can Heal You" is a rock solid foundation for spiritual growth and understanding. You'll want to give a copy to someone you love; so, I recommend you order two copies, because you'll certainly want to keep your own copy close by and read it over and over again.
