For more than 20 years, Dr. Sharon Martin has been blending allopathic medicine with ancient shamanic and energy techniques to help her patients not only heal but also increase their vitality. In this practical guide to her program of Maximum Medicine, Dr. Martin shows how understanding the energetics behind health imbalances and applying shamanic and energy medicine techniques can shift our health, change the course of illness, and allow us to increase our life force. Explaining how the basis of true healing is through awareness of and access to the energy body, she reveals how to sense the energy body in order to develop greater control over our health.
Bridging the mystical and the scientific, Dr. Martin looks at new ways of seeing illness and visualizing the potential for healing using symbolic medicine wheels based on the elements, the compass directions, the four perspectives (literal, emotional, spiritual, and energetic), and the inner tasks of intuitive exploration, amplification, intention setting, and ritual. She describes how to view your organ systems and health challenges through the Andean symbol of the Chacana, which can help you understand your challenges and the journey to overcome them. She examines the process of the Four As (aware, allow, act, affirm), the actions one takes in order to enact change and healing. The author also explores how to amplify your mindfulness using a new Mindfulness Matrix, which in turn leads to a greater ability to self-reflect and bring about healing.
Presenting a straightforward, stepwise approach to attaining mastery of your health as well as simple practices and methods to gain control over illness, Dr. Martin shows how anyone can support their own healing and experience being more fully alive.
