From the Publisher
This extraordinary book offers nothing less than a new vision of
medical care. Rudolph Ballentine, M.D., has created a unique,
integrative blending of the primary holistic schools of healing
that is far more potent than any one of these alone.
Like Deepak Chopra and Andrew Weil, Rudolph Ballentine is a medical
doctor who became intrigued by the workings of mind-body medicine
and looked beyond the West in his search for understanding. Drawing
on thirty years of medical study and practice, Dr. Ballentine has
accomplished a singular feat: integrating the wisdom of the great
traditional healing systems--especially Ayurveda, homeopathy,
Traditional Chinese Medicine, European and Native American
herbology, nutrition, psychotherapy, and bodywork. Melded together,
the profound principles buried in these systems become clearer and
stronger, and a new level of effectiveness becomes possible.
Healing and reorganization are accelerated and
deepened--physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The result is
transformation. The result is radical healing.
Radical Healing harnesses nature''s
medicinals--plants and other natural substances--with commonsense
essentials such as diet, exercise, and cleansing, as well as the
most profound principles of spiritual and psychological
transformation. In Dr. Ballentine''s synthesis, illness is an
opportunity for growth that can go far beyond recovery. Through
radical healing old habits and attitudes that supported the
development of disease fall away, to be replaced by the clarity
that comes with a whole new way of being in the world.
