What if you could start the day by directing your body to heal itself, just as easily as you brush your teeth? It sounds like an idea gleaned from the outer reaches of alternative medicine, but leading biochemists have found evidence that it may in fact be possible. Candace Pert and Mike Ruff are researchers at the forefront of immunology, and their work has led them to explore the measurable relationship between our emotions and the way our bodies heal. They've even discovered a link between the chakras and the presence of chemicals that are vital to the functioning of the immune system. The implications are exciting. Dr. Ruff speculates that "at some future state of supreme enlightenment we're not going to reach for the pharmaceutical cabinet on the shelf in the bathroom. We're just going to induce the proper emotional meditative state of consciousness, and we will bring forth these chemicals in our bodies in the right amounts, at the right time."

Dr. Candace Pert is a research professor and Dr. Michael Ruff is associate research professor at Georgetown University Medical Center where they have developed a promising new drug for the treatment of AIDS. Dr. Pert is best known for her discovery of the opiate receptor, a mechanism of cellular communication in the brain, which launched a revolution in medical science. She is the author of Molecules of Emotion: The Science Behind Mind-Body Medicine (Scribner 1999) and the CD Psychosomatic Wellness: Healing Your Body-Mind

Topics explored in this dialogue:

  • Why good health may be "all in your mind"
  • How your chakras are related to the chemicals that drive your immune system
  • How information is processed throughout your body-not just your brain
  • Why the scar on your knee may remember how it got there
  • What emotion you can cultivate to help your body heal

Excellent Content for Overcoming Light Deprivation (SAD)
Reviewer qwertyldima
 December 21, 2008
I really like the second track on Candace's Psychosomatic Wellness CD. I have the original version with the older cover art. You can combine this CD with light therapy and have an effortless recovery from the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder or what I call 'light-deprivation'.

The only reason that I failed to give it 5 stars is that her voice is soft at times and is overpowered by the background sound.

The first track describes the concept of Psychosomatic Wellness and is a good prelude to using this modality of healing in your life.

The remaining tracks stand on their own merit.

I use mainly track 2 and highly recommend this CD and Candace's other work as well.
