Bach Flower Essences and Chinese Medicine

By Pablo Noriega

ISBN-13: 978-1-62055-571-2 (Healing Arts Press, 2016)

In my lifetime I have watched as boundaries between Eastern and Western modes of healing merge, which is what we call “integrative medicine.” Backed by a mountain of research, Noriega leads the way to a deeper understanding of flower essences, especially in regard to Chinese medicine. This book is a detailed explanation of the inter-connectedness between each essence and how it corresponds to a variety of illness, both emotional and physical. It is a perfect way to catch many chronic disorders before they manifest on the physical realm.

Happiness Genes: Unlock the Positive Potential Hidden in Your DNA

By James D. Baird, PhD, and Laurie Nadel, PhD

ISBN-13: 978-1-60163-105-3 (New Page Books, 2010)

If you know anything about Dr. Bruce Lipton’s work, you know that simply by working with your emotional energy you can reprogram your genes. We are no longer victims of our inherited genes, and this book shows the way to altering your genetic makeup. Although there are many ways to go about this, one proven way is through the emotion of happiness, which sounds deceptively simple. Here’s my advice: Take 28 days out of your life to read and practice what’s in this book and you will find the magic behind “epigenetics” through this program.

By David Elliot

ISBN-13: 978-0-97539-106-8 (Hawk Press, 2010)

Is there a universal energy that flows through all of life? I think we can all agree to this on some level and if it’s so, I would say that this energy is what we call love. We all need to be healed on some level and it seems that all we need to do is to get out of the way with our beliefs and ideas that no longer serve us. We are living and being right in the midst of an amazing transformation on this planet and books such as this can light the path. Even though this book is for sale everywhere, I was touched when I found out that it’s a free download on David’s website,

Soul Breathing: Spiritual Light and the Art of Self-Mastery

By Carrie L’Esperance

ISBN-13: 978-1-59143-249-4 (Bear & Company, 2016)

What grabbed me about this book is the approach Carrie takes to embrace life’s experiences and be with it, good or bad. By doing this we start to break our addiction to constantly being distracted. We constantly try to fill a void with “things,” not realizing that “things” are devoid of spirit and will never quench that spiritual thirst we have. But this book goes even deeper into the fact that we live in an ocean of electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) that disrupt and distort our beings on subtle levels. We all had better wake up to the fact that we are living in a world much different from one that our grandparents were even able to dream of. This is a great “how-to” book.

The Book of Tapping: Emotional Acupressure with EFT

By Sophie Merle

ISBN-13: 978-1-62055-601-6 (Healing Arts Press, 2017)

Being the publisher of an alternative health magazine gives me a privileged view of many healing techniques and by far, “tapping-EFT” has proven itself time and time again with everything from PTSD and depression to jealousy and panic attacks. The real challenge has been to find a well-written and easy-to-understand book on the subject and this is it. It’s the perfect little book for a beginner or for a long-time practitioner to be reminded of the simplicity of the process.

The End of Stress: Four Steps to Rewire Your Brain

By Joseph Goewey

ISBN-13: 978-1-58270-491-3 (Atria Books/Beyond Words, 2014)

Who’s ever heard of rewiring your brain? Well, anyone who has been keeping up with neuroscience and the research with neuroplasticity. Stress is the number one factor behind most illness in today’s modern world, so you have a choice: You can numb out with drugs, which a large percentage of the population does, or you can read this book and follow the formula “4 Steps + 8 Weeks = The End of Stress.” Don’t be like 80 percent of the population and do nothing about it until it’s too late. Reducing stress increases performance, creativity, and your ability to live a healthier life … it’s time.
