Spinal Cord Research and Education Foundations' director Dr Laurance Johnston reviews Brent Atwater's book How to Overcome Your Health Problems

Dr. Laurance Johnston's reviews Brent Atwater's How to Overcome Your Health Problems

Dr Laurance Johnston: Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from Northwestern University. Laurance Johnston became a FDA regulatory scientist, a NIH division director, and director of the Spinal Cord Research and Education Foundations, Paralyzed Veterans of America. More recently, Dr. Johnston has written extensively on various therapies that expand the healing spectrum of people with disabilities, including being the author of Alternative Medicine and Spinal Cord Injury: Beyond the Banks of the Mainstream.

Dr Johnston's review:

"In my efforts to research and write about various therapies that expand the healing spectrum for individuals with disabilities, I’ve come across many gifted healers. Especially impressive amongst these healers is Brent Atwater, author of A Practical Guide- How to Overcome Your Health Problems. A true renaissance woman, she is an exceptional creative and healing force, who shares with us numerous healing insights in her book.

Although I’m a product of the mainstream traditional medical establishment, including being a former National-Institutes-of-Health division director, I now believe all healing has mind-body-spirit components. Much of our biochemistry and overall physical health is subordinate to the attitudes, emotions, and consciousness we adopt in everyday life. Because scientists don’t like “mind-body-spirit” healing, they’ve created a more palatable substitute term “psychoneuroimmunology.” This highfalutin word encompasses the same concept – i.e., what you think and the emotions you embrace over the long term will eventually percolate and create – good or bad results- into your physical body through neurological and hormonal physiological cascades.

Based on her extensive experience, Atwater’s book provides many great insights, gems of wisdom, and practical suggestions on how to change your attitudes to a health-enhancing and -promoting direction. It may sound easy to just “up your attitude.” But it’s hard for most of us as we cope with life’s every-day challenges to let go of the seemingly endless onslaught of disempowering, health-compromising negativity that flows through our consciousness and to replace it with life-affirming thinking. Atwater’s book provides real life applications, doable guidelines and step by step techniques to help make this shift. Although the journey may be challenging, each action you take will make the next one easier. As the Chinese sage Lao-Tzu stated, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Take that initial step with Atwater’s book."
