We are what we eat — and see, hear, smell and touch. Through 15 practical lessons in “Healing Your Life,” Dr. Marc Halpern, President of the California College of Ayurveda, shows how even small changes in what people eat, see, hear, smell, and touch, can profoundly improve health and happiness.
Through 15 practical lessons in the new book “Healing Your Life,” Dr. Marc Halpern, President of the California College of Ayurveda, shows how even small changes in what people eat, see, hear, smell, and touch, can profoundly improve health and happiness.
In “Healing Your Life,” Dr. Halpern shares the knowledge learned from working with thousands of students and patients, plus inspiring reflections from his own healing journey.
A fight against debilitating disease led Dr. Marc Halpern to reject his “work hard, play hard” lifestyle in the 1980’s, pursue natural healing, and establish the first school of clinical ayurvedic medicine in the United States in 1995.
“No two people are the same, so there is no single diet or lifestyle that works for everyone. This book, and my life’s work, is to help people achieve their own highest potential, happiness and health,” said Dr. Halpern.
Healing Your Life is sprinkled with insights such as:
- How and where we eat is more important than what we eat
- Music is medicine, and some thrive on rap, others on reggae or classical
- We shouldn’t work past 7 pm, or check e-mail or cell phones
- A closet full of black clothes might be bringing us down
The 15 Lessons include insights into the cause of disease, developing patience, and the roles of diet, music, color, touch, aroma, imbalances and daily rhythm in our lives.
Dr. Halpern also reflects on his life as the child of divorced Jewish parents, his early professional life as a doctor of chiropractic, and the mysterious auto-immune disorder that left him bedridden at age 25, and his subsequent seven year struggle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. His inspiring path to personal health and happiness is a success story in ayurvedic living and medicine.
