Washington, D.C. -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/29/2013 -- According to Antonia C Johns, MD, we live in a broken world. In her latest book, medical principles are used to uncover the self and world healing required to get society and its people back on track. With a focus on the physician-patient relationship, the book provides a radical yet realistic approach that medical personnel around the world can use to play their part in this healing process.
‘Cura Personalis: A Course in Medical Miracles: Embracing our Whole Identity in Becoming Fully Effective Healers’ isn’t just a book of theory; it’s a fusion of scientific and spiritual principles that can quite literally change the world.
The physician-patient bond is a significant relationship, intended to effect healing in our patient -- but is it the patient alone who benefits?
We are all patients at some point. As a patient, how well do we know our self, how clearly do we communicate what troubles us to our doctor, to others?
Even when we are feeling healthy, we remain aware of some aspects of our lives that need healing. For many of us, it is our relationships that need healing.
This book is an essential exploration into the challenges inherent in the physician-patient dynamic and extends the findings to other important encounters. The reason it is appropriate for everyone, physician or not, is because the principles adhered to in its writing are universal in reach and eternally relevant. Its sole purpose is to promote healing in our world, individually and collectively. Whatever our vocation we are each called to be an essential effective healer in some way that is natural to us, our gift to the world. Here we are reminded that when we promote conditions for healing in our relationships we manifest miracles naturally.
As the author explains, her book addresses issues and concerns beyond the examination room.
“It explains the nature of our shared human experience and shared psychosocial development, why young men become troubled and cause terror, and ultimately why our world remains so broken. Even when we are feeling well, many of us feel the need to heal in our relationships. Simply stated, world healing leads to heaven and healing begins with you,” says Dr. Johns.
Continuing, “It was originally written for newly-qualified Doctors but has universal application. While many perspectives and approaches are considered, the book remains firmly grounded in its role to heal.”
Critics praise Dr. Johns for the diligent efforts she is taking to change the lives of people around the world. With the book’s popularity expected to increase, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.
