I would love to say that I believe in this stuff (there's a HUGE "but" coming) BUT while I do think there's some truth to the "mind over body" way of thinking, I don't think you can really wish away a cyst or cancer. I wish you could and I do think a positive attitude can go a long way but when I get sick I want to make sure I have a good, qualified physician taking care of me, not this book.

I LOVE Louise Hay! This book is a great addition to those particular books that you will go back to often. Reference books, is what I call them. I love her philosophy and her concepts of what you say becomes your life. Very powerful. As I read through some of the health issue's I've experienced, I had to really be honest with myself and admit alot of uncomfortable things about myself. It was eye-opening and hopefully will stick and remain with me forever so I can continue to grow and improve my ...more

Much more simplistic than I imagined, I nonetheless enjoyed this book. Hay essentially distills all ailments as falling into two buckets--expressions of anger or expressions of fear.

“The mental thought patterns that cause the most dis-ease in the body are criticism, anger, resentment, and guilt."

The idea is that you look to your physical ailments to give you clues about your emotional and psychological health. Hay offers up mantras to counter what your ailments reveal.

This is a great, easy to access book if you are looking into alternative approaches to health and wellness. It's based on metaphysical philosophies of health and disease (dis-ease). I highly recommend it if you are looking to improve your quality of life, better understand your body, and are able to keep an open mind.

The first place I or someone I know has an ailment. This book really helps illustrate the mind/body connection. I often find that the spiritual meanings make a lot of sense. I've not had much success with using the suggested affirmations to correct the problems--but that's my fault because I haven't put in the effort of saying them. Overall, a very interesting book and a must-have for the spirit junkie's library.

This book was suggest to me by my daughters therapist. I love it! It has some very interesting information in it. Even if you are not "new age" minded it will give you a great deal to think about. It connects feeling and psychology to physical ailments. We are finding out more everyday that this type of science has merit. I am a very logical and science fact based person and this book still spoke volumes to me.

Only good for people who are open to hoke-pokey ideas like self-healing through positive affirmations (like me!) Although I agree it does seem pretty funny to read introspective reasons for having gonorrheh and positive affirmations to correct the problem. (I would just say the reason is not a need for punishment for being a "bad" person, just the result of having unprotected sex.)

Great healing guide for you and your loved ones

I liked that you could jump straight, find problems that are ailing you most, and begin to heal them immediately. For future readers, I say open your mind and take in what the author has to say. I recommend this book.

Intersting perspectove

I have a hard time believing anything I just read but hey, I've heard of odder things that happened. Take it for what this book is worth. Louise Hay is one of my faves though. She is a warrior and her affirmations are so sincere.

This handy reference guide covers a variety of ailments, their root mental causes, and new though patterns you cna use as affirmations to relieve your problems. It isn't always easy to believe that physical problems are the result of "stinking thinking", but as I read through the list of physical problems, Identifying those that have plagued me in my lifetime, i noticed a pattern. Nearly all of the physical problems I have experienced relate to an inability to let go of the past or an inability ...more

Eye-opening and soul-healing. I could not get through this book with a dry eye. There is truth in how we manifest dis-ease in our bodies through our thoughts.

A Must Have!

I'm not big on self help mumbo jumbo, but I can honestly say this book opened my eyes to many things. I am using a few of the affirmations and I already see a positive change in me. I would suggest everyone read this.. It may just make the world a better place.

This is a reference book and I enjoy going through it whenever I have an ailment to see if maybe there is a spiritual reason why I have attracted it.

Very interesting stuff. I looked up my ailments and saw a very distinct pattern of alleged thought processes that made perfect sense for me. In my case (according to her ailments and their causes) I don't trust the universe, have a hard time letting go of the past, and harbor a lot of anger and resentment. I'd say that's extremely true.

I think this book is a great guide and tool for getting one thinking more positively!

I think I checked out a summary edition of this book two years ago and thought it a joke. Somehow I came across the full version and actually found it very interesting this time. I guess I not as narrow minded as last time I looked at it. Heh.
