Dr. Gerber has spent a quarter of a century researching alternative methods of diagnosis and healing. He received his medical degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine (Detroit, Michigan) and continues his practice of internal medicine in the same area.

This book is a compilation of various alternative approaches in medicine. It covers everything from high-tech (lasers and holograms) to low-tech (herbal medicine and hydrotherapy). It includes psychic healing and crystal therapy. All of this, and more, is covered in thirteen chapters.

This book was originally published in the late '80s, at a time when the use of lasers by the medical field was just beginning to become widespread, and before the acceptance of many now commonly accepted "alternative" treatments by society at large.

This is. By no means, a light-weight book. Although I feel anyone with average intelligence will be able to benefit from reading it, I'm also sure that many readers will not be willing to accept much of the data contained within it. For those locked into a "nuts and bolts" approach to healing and medicine, discussion of etheric and astral matter may well seem like science fiction. Of course, discussion of x-rays in medicine seemed like science fiction not so long ago. If you are willing to accept, as a working hypothesis, many of the concepts Dr. Gerber presents, you may find yourself expanding your own awareness of human health and well-being.

The first four chapters lay the groundwork for the remainder of the book, explaining the ideas behind etheric and astral energies, the concept of reincarnation, and an attempt at explaining the existence of faster-than-light particles. For those who have been exposed to such concepts through prior reading or training, there is nothing too radical in here. For those with no such prior exposure, this section may border on the fantastic. Bear with it, however, as it is a necessary foundation for further understanding.

The author covers radionics as a diagnostic and healing tool. Many people will have a problem since this smacks of science fiction in some ways. Most of the techniques and methodologies are on the fringe of accepted medical practice today.

Dr. Gerber has assembled data from a wide range of sources, both medical and metaphysical, and presents a well-though out approach to the use of techniques which have been in use for millennia as well as those which are on the cutting edge of technology.

If you read this book with an open mind, you will benefit greatly from it.
