This is a mind/body health book I wrote because of my childhood. I discovered other avenues for happiness for both my mind and my body. These avenues, which were not outside of my own experience, were way different from what I was taught. At six years of age I witnessed what the power of prayer can do to change a physical problem. At nine I realized my parents didn't know what the word love meant and found an avenue to travel for more information on that subject. At eleven I decided to become a Catholic priest, a nun told me she married Jesus to experience love. At twelve, just two weeks before going into a seminary, I decided not to go. At thirteen just after receiving an "F" grade in religion class where I thought I would learn about love, I realized I wasn't going to learn about love from priests, brothers or nuns.
Remembering an old saying from St. Thomas Aquinas learned as an alter boy to "Test everything," I decided to love himself and I started to ask this question, "If I love myself, would I have this thought." In my later teenage years I added, "If I love myself, would I breathe, drink or eat this stuff."
Drafted into the Army in 1969, I again witnessed how powerful is prayer and surrendered to it completely, "Thy will be done." While training to be a combat medic and later with other duties, the Army inspired me to become a doctor. I did very well in my doctorate program and was asked to be a professor. I also started a private practice. Later I specialized but with all that training it still boils down to this. To be healthy in this world, reduce your mental conflicts and physical frictions, which are stress, and at the same time add the evolutionary basic needs, like good food and clean water, for a balanced life so you will be healthy that many of us have lost surviving civilized today.
It's been said, every living being longs to be happy, without good health is happiness possible? Discover in this book what is health because it has a very old definition that is 3.5 billion years old.
