In 1966 Dr. Lawrence graduated from U.C. Irvine School of Medicine. He performed his internship at U.S.C. County General Hospital in Los Angeles, California. Upon completion of his internship he entered the U.S. Air Force as a Medical Officer. He spent the next two years on the island of Guam working both with military personnel and their wives. Upon discharge from the Air Force he joined a General Practice in Los Angeles for one year. In 1970 he entered a residency training program in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
Upon completion of my training Dr. Allen Lawrence went into private practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the West Los Angeles-Beverly Hills area. He practiced OB-Gyn for the next 11 years. During that time he performed thousands of deliveries. These deliveries not only in the hospital but many hundreds as home deliveries and in later in a non-hospital based birthing center. Throughout this period he never lost a single mother or baby, my C-section rate was a low 5%.
In 1983 he left the practice of OB-Gyn in 1983 after developing a severe and incapacitating heart irregularity. After trying many different combinations of medication he ultimately recognized that his problem was primarily stress-related. Dr. Lawrence spent the next ten years learning about stress, healing, comparative healing systems. Eventually, this quest lead to the realm of prevention and healing people instead of waiting until they became sick to then treat them. In 1980 he earned a Master's Degree in Nutrition and in 1984 a Ph.D. in Psychology.

As a reader and an individual ill with physicians diagnosed as progressive MS, I was looking for an inspirational book,about Eastern Health, not Western. Tired of all the misdiagnoses, the surgeries and all the side effects of the medications. I started to research ancient healing practices. Huna, from Hawaiians and ancient times practices, is an natural healing energy we all have ingrained in our vessels and minds. Thus the saying mind over body, can be the great practitioner of healing an illness, condition or maintain good health.
As I read through the book, alot of the concepts and knowledge rang a inner bell in my conscious and as a reader and patient I can testified that my mind has been negative lately and that it does affect one's health.
There are some very informed knowledge in this book, and it can be a refreshing starting guide to take charge of your mind and help your body heal or increase your vitality instead of asking and crying "Why Me?" It has techniques and information to tap into a hidden source to improve your health, and helps one to look forward to discovering more about yourself, as a person and patient as you shed the negative shadows and skeletons out of your mind and give the body and being the strength to recover from many years of abuse. It is written by a physician and it is recommend that you do not stop taking medications or visiting the doctor, but integrating this Eastern theories in your schedule.
In the author's words; "The Huna concept of illness matches very well the work of psychoneuroimmunobiology researchers. We are our thoughts. In 1637, René Descartes, the father of modern scientific theory from which modern medicine arises wrote, 'I think therefore I am.' He was not trying to prove that we existed but in writing this he opened the door to recognize that our thoughts are import and that they do in many ways shape us and the life we live. Our thoughts can either heal us and help us grow and evolve or they hinder us and hurt us, mold us in a way that causes illness and leads to more and more suffering. The Huna master recognized these hurts, pain and dysfunctions as important causes of the illnesses we humans suffer.
Clearly, Huna works both for self healing and for facilitation of the skills and capacities of all physicians. It empowers us to positively affect our own life and body through how we live and what we think. Huna can and does also demonstrate how illness and disease can take hold of us and undermine who we are.
With a deeper understanding of Huna we can see that illness is an Intelligent act of the body in response to our thoughts, feelings, emotions and lifestyle. As we will soon see, illness is most commonly, but not entirely, mediated through the stress mechanism. For our faulty beliefs and lies act against us not only on a cellular level but through the tension they create in the body, stress."
As a reader I highly recommend this book for all interest in maintaining and improving your mind, body and spirit to be united and bring balance back to your being.
