Half of ill people if left alone will heal on their own. So believes a chiropractic and book author on the topic. Because traditional western medicine has focused on external healing most people are unaware of the power of their own bodies, he says.
Fabrizio Mancini, president, Parker College of Chiropractic, is convinced from personal experience and experience with patients that the human body has a built-in capacity to heal itself and that improving the body’s ability to heal can be controlled by each individual.
In The Power of Self-healing: Unlock Your Natural Healing Potential in 21 Days (Hay House, $24.95), published in 2012, the bi-lingual speaker explains his health theories and outlines his ideas on how readers can tap into their body’s own healing powers through: simple substitutions of daily diet-foods that he believes can contribute to a body’s ability to self-heal, the latest supplements he thinks can strengthen the body’s self-healing capacities, new insights into how physical activity floods the body with natural healing substances, the latest non-drug, non-invasive technologies he thinks can contribute to health, the power of the mind and spirit to heal the body, self healing case studies and his suggestions for a 21-day self-healing program.
The 280-page hardcover book is divided into four main parts Physical Self-Healing, Emotional Self-Healing, Spiritual Self-Healing and 21 Days to Self-Healing and 14 chapters. At the beginning of the book, Mancini, an immigrant from Colombia, shares a little about his arrival in the United States and why he decided on his path as a chiropractic and educator in life. In his opinion there is a basic difference between healing and curing; and there are three types of healing: physical, emotional and spiritual.
Exercise and diet can be good first steps toward self healing, according to the Texas resident. He dedicated the first chapter of the book to foods and the second chapter to things that he considered to have a detrimental effect or Anti-Healers. He discusses nutritional supplements, exercise and other forms of healing in the following chapters. Next he discusses the power of thoughts, emotions and in self-healing. He then addresses the role of creativity, forgiveness, gratitude, love including the importance of hugs and spirituality. The book ends with his recommendations for a 21-day healing program that includes a menu, supplements, exercise and a positive suggestion for each day.
A graduate of Parker College himself he is the co-author of Chicken Soup for the Chiropractic Soul and The Well Adjusted Soul; and author of Four Steps for Living a Fabulous Life.
