Change Your Mind, Heal Your Body: When Modern Medicine Has No Cure, the Answer Lies Within

A successful journalist turned healer describes her innovative system of healing through the lens of her own self-healing journey. Anna Parkinson was a busy workaholic reporter who yearned to leave her stressful job when she was diagnosed with a mysterious tumor behind her carotid artery. At first she pursued the traditional medical route, but after a series of frustrating mishaps with the medical system, she began to investigate alternative healing. Her search brought her into contact with such venerable healing philosophies as the ancient Hindu chakra and the simpler Hawaiian system. She eventually met Martin Brofman, founder of Body Mirror Healing, who taught her how to delve into her emotional blockages underpinning the illness.

The breakthrough came when she realized that her body was communicating to her through the message of cancer. She ultimately developed a series of simple exercises, shared in the book, that help people better listen to their bodies and bring the energy needed to wipe away disease.

With a Foreword by legendary Afro-British poet and rapper, Benjamin Zephaniah.

Anna Parkinson is a UK-based writer, healer and former BBC producer. Her first book, Nature's Alchemist, Frances Lincoln (2007) was an historical account of John Parkinson, an ancestor who was a pioneer English herbalist in the 17th century.  She has a busy healing practice and has appeared on radio phone-ins to talk about healing.
