Divided into eight sections, this book takes readers through a step-by-step process of internal transformation. Placing great emphasis on the importance of the individual's relationship with one's self, Desjardins guides readers through a provoking examination of childhood relationships. Using the term "Inner Child" to describe the "authentic self," readers analyze unmet emotional and psychological needs rooted in the formative years of their development. This assessment of the inner child forms the basis of Desjardins' theory of holistic healing: because "body, mind, emotions, and spirit" work in synthesis to produce healthy individuals, and by extension, a healthy marriage, a reader must confront and recognize the wants and needs of his or her inner child and in doing so, recognize the deficiencies in his or her own character.

From Hippocrates in ancient Greece to the medical healers of today, the impact that the mind-body connection has had on overall health has been widely recognized. And while advancements in technology are vast, the constraints of conventional medicine are an impediment to successfully preventing, reversing, or addressing the causes of chronic diseases—diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, arthritis, acid reflux, cancer, and more. At times, these advancements have even proven fatal. In Superhealing: Engaging Your Mind, Body, and Spirit to Create Optimal Health and Well-being, Dr. Elaine Ferguson uses an integrative approach to healing as a way of eradicating the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual limitations—illustrated from the real-life stories she has witnessed throughout her medical career—that lead to chronic diseases and imbalance. Throughout Superhealing, readers will explore the truth about genetics and disease; the central role and significance stress has on the mind-body connection, as well as the distinctions between feelings, thoughts, and emotions and how both positive and negative emotions factor into one's health. Readers will also discover: The power of a plant-based diet and the true dangers of processed food The impact healthy relationships have on the body The significance of vitamin D3, omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, critical minerals, and vitamin B complex Why exercise should be the readers' superhealing "drug" of choice The superhealing power of touch—particularly massage and reflexology Toxic environmental factors such as the health-damaging chemicals present in most personal care and cleaning products and how to reduce or eliminate them How laughter, meditation, guided imagery, cognitive reprogramming, journaling, forgiveness, and gratitude affects one's health How spiritual beliefs and practices, isolation, and adversarial relationships contribute to physical and psychological decline Once the groundwork is complete, readers will construct an individualized, forty-day, two-part plan using a variety of clinically proven, holistic techniques that will encompass four core steps to a superhealing lifestyle. These steps will guide them on a unique path to better health while bringing the mind, body, and spirit, back into balance.

"Your spirit is your most important personal weapon in the battle with cancer!" Writing from the unique perspective of an oncology social worker, a holistic psychotherapist, and the wife of a patient with high-risk prostate cancer Judith Desjardins shares the intimate details of their journey and the empowering strategies she devised to turn a pessimistic prognosis into improbable, positive, and hopeful results. This book is a firsthand picture of the emotional and psychological toll that prostate cancer takes on patients and their loved ones, and shows how it affects them on the inside-the mind, emotions, and spirit. It is her firm belief that understanding and treating these dimensions of the disease as well as the body, in a holistic approach,can lead to a better prognosis for the prostate cancer patient-and that it can also prevent family caretakers from developing their own medical problems due to stress.

Rule the world and take control of your emotional and mental health from where you sit, stand, and sleep. The Holistic Home is based on an original lifestyle concept focused on creating a dynamic, healthy, and thoughtful space within yourself and your home by combining three planes of action—mind, body, and spirit—that result in profound change. The condition of the mind affects the psychology of how you dwell: subconscious influences, decorating with intention, and allowing your emotional issues and challenges to manifest in your space. The physical aspects of your design space, such as furniture positioning, design elements, sustainability, wellness, and organization, are representative of your relationship with your body. And finally, the spirit refers to all the invisible energies within you and your home—feng shui, atmosphere, and the soul of your home. Years ago, author and holistic feng shui expert Laura Benko was diagnosed with a rare cancer. Around that time, a book serendipitously fell on her head. She took this as a much-needed sign to devote the next decade of her life to research and hundreds of transformative holistic design consultations. Her clients’ real-life, inspiring stories, along with specific actions and tips, have become the foundation for The Holistic Home. Chapter by chapter, you’ll learn how to holistically tackle it all—relationships, clutter, health, communities, inner balance, and more—by looking within your immediate environment to make direct connections in your life.
