I’ve been a long-time fan of Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, DC and president of Parker University. He’s such a dynamic speaker with true passion for the health profession. When I heard he was writing a book about the power of the body to self-heal, I knew I would be among the first in line to purchase it!
The book is, “The Power of Self-Healing: Unlock Your Natural Healing Potential in 21 Days!”, and it’s a must-read for anyone seeking a simple approach to better health, more vitality and increased energy. Dr. Fab’s focus is health from the inside out. From healing with food and supplements to the role our thoughts play in our health, this is a well-rounded book that covers the how-tos that we innately know are important to living a wellness lifestyle. The book breaks them down into simple and manageable steps, sharing why each is important. The testimonials and healing success stories included in the book are motivation and inspiring.
What I love most about “The Power of Self-Healing” is the approach the book takes in describing the role of emotions and spirituality in health and healing. From my experience in life and in practice, emotional strain causes physical strain. Without working on this part of our lives, we are holding ourselves back and are unable to completely leverage the amazing power within our body. Dr. Fab’s views were aligned and consistent with the philosophy of our office, “When we believe in the power of the body, miracles happen.” Yes, the power of healing literally starts from the inside.
I do take a different stand from Dr. Fab when it comes to some elements of his diet recommendations. For example, the book recommends low fat cream cheese, sour cream and yogurt. Low-fat raises a red-flag for me as a scan of the ingredients will usually reveal additives to enhance flavors, fillers to increase bulk, as well as additional preservatives and colors. When the fat is taken out, it needs to be replaced by something, and that something is usually synthetic.
I’ve also found low-fat becomes one with low-sugar (or sugar-free), which usually means another type of artificial; in the form of sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners, such as sucralose (Splenda) or aspartame are chemicals, which many studies show negatively impact health (and contrary to what many believe, actually lead to weight-gain and obesity).
Dr. Fab does make many food recommendations I wholeheartedly agree with and support. Apples, avocados, onions and more…In general, when the book recommended real food, it got a thumb’s up from me.
“The Power of Self-Healing” breaks down the key aspects of health and no matter where you are in your life, within its pages you will find simple strategies you can incorporate into your life immediately. Pick up a copy and learn for yourself how you can unlock your healing potential.
P.S. I just recently learned that Dr. Fab recorded a segment for the Dr. Phil Show! The date the show will air is yet to be determined. I noticed on Dr. Fab’s Facebook page he commented that March 14, 2012 may be the date. We’ll be watching for the latest information and will post it on Healing Touch Chiropractic’s Facebook page. Please watch there for the announcement; I would love for you to watch and see for yourself how inspiring and down to earth Dr. Fabrizio is. Trust me, you’ll love him!
