Two Amazing Books that Show You How to Maintain Your Health with Energy Medicine

This page introduces two books that go a long way towards showing you how to achieve and maintain optimal health. The books are the work of Donna Eden, an author, trainer, and gifted energy healer. Through her workshops, video tutorials and books, Eden has shown thousands of people how to optimize their health through the practice of energy medicine.

Donna Eden is the author of some amazing books explaining how you can work with the body's natural energies to heal your body and mind or to help you maintain good health.

I'm tempted to say these books can change your life-- but such comments are so trite and overdone that it would turn off anyone who read it. Instead, I will say this: Donna Eden's books and DVDs have contributed to the quality of my life. Without them, I would not enjoy the health and vitality that I do today.

Donna Eden is an energy healer, author, international speaker, consultant and trainer.

What is Energy Medicine?

Energy medicine is a simple, non-evasive means of improving health and vitality by manipulating the subtle energies that run through the body.

These subtle energies are the same energies known as "prana" in the yogic discipline, or as "chi" by the Chinese healers. Energy medicine utilizes the same energy that is manipulated in acupressure and acupuncture -- but without the needles.

Instead, you use your hands to hold, stroke, tap or rub specific areas of the body, thereby causing a change in the energy patterns.

Donna Eden's first two books, Energy Medicine and Energy Medicine for Women,describe how to use these techniques to maintain health and vitality and to help heal from disease or conditions that may be present.

The books have diagrams, sketches and photographs that show how to perform the simple techniques.

If there is a "con" to these books, and I am hard put to think of any, it would be that the material sometimes requires you to flip back and forth to refer to descriptions on earlier pages. This can be a little confusing, but I cannot suggest how she could have organized the book differently. Another drawback is that in Energy Medicine for Women, Donna does not spend enough time discussing the senior years, at at least in my opinion.

These are small issues, and I include them only because book recommendations should cover both the pros an cons.

A Personal Experience

Back Pain Removed

This is one small example of how Donna's techniques helped me.

One afternoon, my back began to hurt. I have no idea how the injury occurred. The pain wasn't severe but it was definitely a problem. By bedtime, the discomfort had increased enough that I could not get comfortable in bed.

I had no pain killers in the house, and I had no ice or ice packs or frozen peas in the freezer.

Realizing that I would be awake all night unless I did something, I got up and opened Energy Medicine for Women. Looking through the index, I found that lower back pain was covered in the chapter on PMS. That was hardly the cause of my pain, but I decided that I had nothing to lose by trying the technique described for removing PMS related lower back pain.

This technique involved holding points on my hands and feet for a total of about five minutes.

After five minutes, I returned to bed and was surprised to find that the pain had decreased enough that I could sleep easily. In early morning, I repeated the technique. The pain disappeared and did not return.

Warding Off a Cold

Here is another small example of how I use Donna's techniques. I perform a couple of simple exercises whenever I feel a cold or the sniffles starting.

In the past five years, I have had one serious cold that I did not ward off. All others have disappeared momentarily after doing the exercises, or have lasted about a day at worst.

Before I discovered Donna's work, I caught colds frequently, and they were usually quite severe, often ending in sinusitis or bronchitis. In the interests of full disclosure, I also get the flu shot every winter.

Nonetheless, I have personal experience with these simple exercises "literally stopping a cold bug in its tracks", to quote Donna herself.

Energy Medicine - Written with David Feinstein, Ph.D.

This is Donna's first book, published in 1998 and revised in 2008

Energy Medicine: Balancing Your Body's Energies for Optimal Health, Joy, and Vitality Updated and Expanded
Energy Medicine: Balancing Your Body's Energies for Optimal Health, Joy, and Vitality Updated and Expanded

This is the original Energy Medicine book. Donna explains the various energy systems that exist in the human body. The book provides step by step instructions for working with these energies to help heal existing conditions or to enhance health. Pictures and diagrams help you see exactly what to do. I use a number of the routines daily and find that I am rarely sick. The practices outlined here also played a major role in sending an autoimmune skin disease into remission.

 

Energy Medicine For Women - Written with David Feinstein, Ph.D.

This is the second book, published in 2008

Energy Medicine for Women: Aligning Your Body's Energies to Boost Your Health and Vitality
Energy Medicine for Women: Aligning Your Body's Energies to Boost Your Health and Vitality

This second book includes many of the same topics as the original book. However, since it is written specifically for women, it covers hormones, menstruation, PMS, sexuality, fertility, pregnancy and menopause. There is also an excellent section on using energy medicine to assist with weight management and weight loss.

 

The Most Recent Book: All About Relationships

The Energies of Love: Using Energy Medicine to Keep Your Relationship Thriving
The Energies of Love: Using Energy Medicine to Keep Your Relationship Thriving

This is Donna's most recent book, co-authored with her husband, David Feinstein. In this book, Donna and David describe how they use energy medicine and energy psychology to forge a stronger relationship. The couple are up front in admitting that their marriage has been bumpy from time to time, and that the two have much different personalities and energies. The book discusses the different types of energies that go into shaping a personality and offer suggestions for using this knowledge to strength your relationships.

Debate Alternative Healing Practices

Energy healing, in one form or another, has been around for thousands of years. Is it valid? What do you think?
