Description
The past comes to the rescue as a Washington, D.C., reporter / talk show host and a spiritual medium turn back the clock on self-help, pointing readers in the direction of history in order to help them heal from physical, psychological, and spiritual ailments. In this thoroughly researched book, Anne Gehman and Ellen Ratner give credence to the pioneers who risked their lives, homes, and reputations to bring us some of the most effective alternative treatments in self-help and spirituality known today. In our search for understanding our minds, bodies, and spirits, we have become more open than ever to “alternative” treatments like homeopathy, prayer mediation, herbal remedies, psychic mediums, Eastern medicine, and many others. When Ellen Ratner experienced chronic anxiety, she sought out a holistic psychiatrist who treated her using a little-known science called Coherent Breathing. It worked. Ratner dug deeper into this science and discovered invented and cultivated treatments that were so ahead of their time and far away from traditional medicine that their practitioners were deemed witches or charlatans. But, still, they persevered. Together, Ratner and Gehman explore the lives, ideologies, philosophies, and intellect of hundreds of history’s greatest healers and pioneers, among them names we know, like Appleseed and Mesmer, and others, who we will soon meet in the pages of this enlightening book.
