John Diamond, M.D.
ISBN: 1-890995-17-7 (320 pp.)
“A magnificent piece of work! The material in this book will contribute to the health of anyone who reads it.”
— Carolyn Myss, Ph.D., Author of Anatomy of the Spirit
This self-healing manual is more than just another self-help or “cure-of-the-month” book.
To really heal yourself, you will need to look at yourself, at your life, at your suffering, from many different points of view — and deeply from each of them. To build up a total holistic picture — more, a three-dimensional sculpture of exactly who you have become at this moment in your life. To see yourself accurately and truly, from all perspectives.
A fascinating collection … as a fellow physician I thank Dr. Diamond and honor him for his courage and and honesty in sharing his life, wisdom and experience with us.
— Bernie Siegel, M.D., Author of Love, Medicine & Miracles, and Prescriptions for Living
The loving and healing words in this incredible book by John Diamond have catapulted me to a new level of life energy. Diamond is a genius among healers. He needs to be more broadly read and appreciated for the depth and breadth of his knowledge of the human healing process. His emphasis on the special power of the creative arts and his semi-autobiographical style in this book place him in the pantheon of the most profound and influential healers in contemporary medicine.

John Diamond has produced another book that goes deep to the heart of healing and is intrinsically therapeutic. The appeal of this book lies in the extent to which Dr. Diamond bares his own soul, facets of himself, in his work of healing. The link between creative expression, especially music, and the art of healing was never better symbolized. This is a book filled with spirituality, with poetic metaphor, and with a deep love of humanity.

Diamond provides a fascinating introduction to the world of preventative medicine. … An important essay on wellness for our modern age of chronic dispositions. … John Diamond is a pearl of a writer, and in the sheer comprehensiveness of one man’s soul lies all our health.
