Book Description

1 July 1999

A collaboration between a traditionally trained physician and a medical intuitive, The Creation of Health illuminates the deep connection between emotional dysfunction and physical illness. It describes the role that emotional disturbances play in the most common diseases and ailments, from influenza, the common cold and arthritis to diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

After providing an introduction to intuitive medicine and its history, method of diagnosis, and relationship to traditional medicine, Myss and Shealy detail the deeper emotional and physical reasons why illness develops in the body. Dr Shealy offers a traditional account of a particular disease or ailment, while Dr Myss sheds light on the deeper emotional and psychic causes through her corresponding energy analysis.

Confirming the link between illness and emotion, The Creation of Health puts forth a groundbreaking vision of holistic healing.

Product Description

Amazon Review

In The Creation of Health two experts in very different fields combine their knowledge of the human body and spirit and together give an explosive and, ultimately, common- sense breakdown of the diagnosis and treatment of specific illnesses, each drawing on their own skills in order to encourage a balance between emotional and medical care.

Caroline Myss is an expert in the field of intuitive medicine and, although she herself finds it difficult to explain exactly how she works, the evidence given in case studies proves that she indeed has a knowledge of the human condition which can only be of benefit. Her introduction to intuitive medicine, its history, method of diagnosis and relationship to traditional medicine, is followed by C. Norman Shealy's medical accounts of particular diseases or ailments which are then combined with Myss' insights into the physiological causes through her corresponding energy analysis.

The Creation of Health addresses the link between healing and emotion and encourages a wider understanding of the emotional and physical needs of the human being, with each author supporting the other with evidence of successful diagnosis and treatment by a combination of traditional and intuitive medicine.

Anyone who has ever doubted the virtues of an holistic approach to medicine should read this important book, providing as it does a well-researched, in-depth study of the emotional, physiological and spiritual responses that promote health and healing without once dismissing more conventional approaches and thereby encouraging a closer relationship between medics, healers and, most importantly, the patient. --Susan Harrison


"The pioneering work of Dr Shealy and Caroline Myss is the best way I know to learn the dynamics of the human energy system. Applying the principles of creating health as outlined in this book into your own life may be the most important thing you do for your health." (Christiane Northrup, M.D., author)

"An important book that addresses the crucial spiritual issues which lie at the root of many diseases...Shealy and Myss provide a clear understanding of the reasons behind 'dis-ease', as well as solutions that may heal the higher causes of illness." (Richard Gerber, M.D., author of VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE)

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all in the mind ! 15 Dec 2009
Having at a very young age realised the power of the mind to influence the physical body in a positive and a negative way, i was really pleased that at last someone has made the link.

Caroline Myss is to be congratulated on bringing this master piece to print.

On a personal level i think this information should be made aware to all school children, the teaching of the link between the mind and the physical body is long overdue. We all need to wake up and realise we can control our own destiny if only we become more aware and conscious.

All of her books are a read of a lifetime and a wonderful journey to self discovery.

Many thanks Caroline.

5.0 out of 5 stars love this author 23 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, after purchasing Anatomy of the Spirit, I just had to continue to buy all Caroline Myss's books. Each one brings me further to realising I am ready to continue down my path to enlightenment.

You have to be ready for the content of her books, but if you are, they are truly inspiring. Her books are the best self-help books I have ever bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly recommended. 1 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An engaging, logical look at how we ruin our own health and how we can make amends. The most fascinating aspect of the book is the case study aspect in which the medical situation and some history of a patient is presented followed by Caroline's intuitive reading. The outcome after treatment is then presented. Thoroughly recommended.
