The prospect of "going under the knife" fills us with terror and dread. Peggy Huddleston, a practicing psychotherapist doing clinical research on the ways emotions and the human spirit enhance healing, says, "The fear of surgery can create an opening that allows people to connect with the deep love and peace of their soul, which in turn sets up the biochemistry of healing." Huddleston quotes from ground-breaking studies that prove her five steps to healing can help patients avoid post-operative complications, experience less pain, speed their healing and shorten their hospital stay. While Huddleston's techniques help those facing surgery, they may possibly be used to completely avoid surgery, and are excellent tools for spiritual transformation. (hosted by Patricia Ellsberg)
