Heal Your Body: The Mental Causes for Physical Illness & the Metaphysical Way to Overcome Them

By Louise L. Hay

Hay House Publishers Ltd, 2013. 5th or later edition. Softcover. New. 12 x 18 cm. The assertion that thoughts shape human life does not just apply to aspects like success and happiness in professional and personal spheres of life. Louise L. Hay asserts that it also applies to health. According to Hay, every illness has a mental cause. Either a negative attitude, an event in the past, or negative thoughts. The illness is just a symptom. If the cause can be found and eliminated, it will be reflected in the physical body too. Hay used this idea to cure herself of cancer. She had been abused as a child and had suppressed her feelings and emotions surrounding the event. This had started taking a toll on her body. Hay ignored the disease and instead concentrated on the past event in her life and the effect it had had on her emotions and attitudes. She then decided to release all this negativity that had built up inside her. As Hay began to combat the negative influences with positive and curative affirmations, her cancer was cured without her taking any treatment. Hay identifies different parts of the body with different attitudes and beliefs. For instance, she says that the neck represents flexibility in attitude and if a person is inflexible and has difficulty seeing things from another person’s point of view, this could result in problems like a stiff neck. The book is like a reference manual that explains the use of mind power in healing. Each page has a table, with a body part or a disease listed in the leftmost column. In the second column, she lists the probable mental pattern of the symptom or illness. If a body part has been listed in the first column, the second column describes what that region of the body represents. The third column lists positive affirmations that could cure the illness or any problems associated with the body part. Printed Pages: 83. NA

Health Policy in Britain`s Model Colony: Ceylon (1900-1948), (Series: New Perspectives in South Asian History)

By Margaret Jones

Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd, 2004. Hardcover. New. 21 x 28 cm. Was Western medicine a positive benefit of colonialism or one of its agents of oppression? This question has prompted a vigorous historical and political debate and is explored here in the context of the `model` British colony of Ceylon. In this study, Margaret Jones emphasises the need for both a broad perspective and a more complex analysis. Colonial medicine is critiqued not merelyu in the political and economic context of imperialism but also against the background of human needs and rights. Her research is underscored by a detailed analysis of public health measures and services in Ceylon. One of its key findings is the accommodation achieved between Western and indigenous medicine. Throughout this work, Jones provides nuanced readings of the categories of colonised and coloniser, as well as the concept of colonial medicine. Health Policy in Britain`s Model Colony provides an understanding of historical trends while simultaneously avoiding generalisations that subsume events and actions. Written in a compelling and lucid style, it is a path-breaking contribution to the history of medicine. Printed Pages: 326. NA
