Particularly useful to me was the section on homeopathy. I read the book while visiting friends in Holland and I arrived in India two weeks later with a bad cold I had caught from my hosts. In the past I had taken a remedy that worked fairly well (gelsemium) and so I took a dose just after arriving. My cold--runny nose, sneezing, sinus congestion, tickly throat--entirely disappeared in one minute! When you get the right remedy, it can be amazing fast because it works at an energetic rather than a physical level. As a psychologist and psychotherapist, if I were a little younger, I would consider taking a few years of training in homeopathy as an alternative to training in conventional psychopharmacology. I went out the next day and purchased the home medical kit that Ballentine describes in the book!
The sections on the spiritual dimension of health and healing refer mostly to the Kashmiri Shaiva doctrine of spanda. This is an interesting hypothesis about what Amit Goswami would refer to (in his book The Quantum Doctor) as accessing the quantum level of healing. It would be interesting to see Ballentine take this connection between Shaiva thinking and quantum thinking further. (I suspect that within the intersection of these paths lies the long sought unified field theory.)
The reader will find this to be a very practical guide; it is not just theory. He goes into some detail in areas of expertise, particularly diet and nutrition and related cleansing practices, as well as homeopathy. It is enough for the novice to get a good start at doing these practices in a way that is both effective and kind to the body. (Our teacher, Swami Rama, forbade us to fast for the most part because he felt that Westerners couldn't do this non-violently.)
Enjoy this book and use it in good health to construct a positive vision of a better you!
