“A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party, a company by the way, a counsellor, a multitude of counsellors.”
Charles Baudelaire, Poet
As Dr. Seuss once wrote, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
The book case above holds a small collection of the books that I have read in my quest for health recovery. The knowledge gained from the many books that I have read throughout my search for improved health, have in essence become the ‘software’ that my body, brain and mind have used to help restore my health. Just like a ‘how to’ DIY book can help you build a bookshelf, the knowledge in the books you read that are relevant to how the body, brain and mind do and can function; increases your body and mind’s software knowledge – providing instructions to accomplish the task of restoring and improving health. Reading about ‘miracles’ and ‘out there’ concepts (many scientifically backed) challenges your brain to accept that ‘more is possible’, a concept I impress upon my clients. It you settle, then ‘more is not possible’. You need to give your brain, mind and body permission to consider that ‘more is possible’, if you expect more!
the programs and other operating information used by a computer.
facts, information, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.“a thirst for knowledge”
Why would you need to add software to what your preprogrammed body does automatically? Our body’s communication and response system (your #911) was not equipped for being disrupted by synthetic, toxic interference. On a daily basis you are exposed to a multitude of interfering factors.
I have taken the collection of information from the reading of many books and summarized their relevance to my health recovery from multiple health challenges into a holistic protocol that can be found in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation and e-books. I encourage my clients to read the books that have helped me by referencing them in my book and blog posts. Understanding that when one’s health is compromised clients may find the task of reading overwhelming, I provide a copy of my summarized holistic protocol in my book, to each holistic health consultation client. The easy to read and follow steps in my book give straight forward guidance for clients to implement for recovery and improved health. Get started on a healthier you today, start reading books that will lead you there.
