The Energy Prescription: Give Yourself Abundant Vitality with the Wisdom of America's Leading Natural Pharmacistby Connie Grauds
Synopses & Reviews
A leading pharmacy professor and initiated shamana bridges Western medicine and shamanistic principles in a unique, practical program to ensure the vital energy we all need for happy, healthy, productive lives. Americans are exhausted, and they're seeking relief. In a recent Gallup poll, 40% of respondents reported significant daytime tiredness. Now Connie Grauds, a pharmacist who traveled to the Amazon in search of new methods of healing, draws on her unique background to provide a program for restoring vital energy, which she calls spirited medicine. In The Energy Prescription, Grauds tells the remarkable story of the journey that led her from her practice as a Western healthcare professional--a journey that included her own health and spiritual crisis--to her training with a master Amazonian healer and initiation as a shamana. In her groundbreaking book, she combines Western science and shamanic principles to explore what is really at the root of fatigue, depression, anxiety, insomnia, and other common ailments. With collaborator Doug Childers, she reveals how fear, or susto, disrupts the flow of energy through the essential areas of our lives--mind, soul, relationships, work, and more--and offers simple methods and effective tools for accessing vitality. This practical program features specific exercises and disciplines for connecting to spirited energy and increasing energy flow. And best of all, it offers an energy management system that readers can tailor to their own needs.
Are You Suffering from a Personal Energy Crisis?
In this groundbreaking book, renowned educator, natural medicine pharmacist, and initiated shamana Connie Grauds helps you tap into the wellsprings of vital positive energy that lie within you——but are often blocked by the dispiriting negative energy of fear. Combining cutting-edge Western science with the ancient healing principles of shamanism, Grauds explains how fear and its side effects are at the root of a variety of ailments, from lethargy, depression, and insomnia to the most serious illnesses——and provides a practical program that will revitalize every area of your life. From restoring physical and emotional health to gaining harmony in work and personal relationships, here are exercises that will teach you how to: Eliminate energy-depleting habits and create new, energy-generating behaviors, identify your energy “leaks”, release stress and tension through a deeper somatic awareness and to restore the dynamic flow of energy through the eight primary entradas, or gateways: mind/soul, breath, water, food, exercise, nature, relationships, and altruism.
In addition, Grauds shares personal experiences from her fascinating ten-year apprenticeship in the Amazon with a master healer. Now you can begin on a path of balance, wisdom, sanity, and self-knowledge that will support even the most demanding lifestyle and help you achieve the optimum health that is naturally yours.
