As the nights grow longer and the holidays closer, time for reflection is
in the air. David shares his very public reckoning with skeptics of
energy healing, Gail Jett tells how she revived her father while waiting
for the paramedics, and Donna gives her thoughts about the Swine Flu
vaccination and how to keep your immune system strong.
teaching a weekend Energy Medicine basic class in Phoenix followed by an
Energy Medicine for Women 2-Day class. We hope you will let everyone who
might benefit know about them. And of course, we are always wanting
to entice those of you who are ready into the Certification Program. Our latest brief
pitch is below As the ever-more-popular Dr. Oz keeps saying,
"Energy medicine is the next great frontier in medicine," and
we are full of enthusiasm about teaching it to you.

Gail Jett Revives Her Father While Waiting for the
Another example of energy medicine in action.
My father has Parkinson's and lives across the street from me.
Yesterday, his evening caregiver arrived and he was nonresponsive.
She was scared. She said he was breathing but absolutely nonresponsive.
I'm a nurse and was there immediately. She was right. No response
whatsoever, nor to noxious stimuli (sternal rub). I called 911. After
calling, I did a vigorous 3 thumps on him. Then I took his arms and
legs and moved him into a cross crawl pattern (seated). I could
feel him start to come around. Just as the paramedics got there,
his eyes flew open, and he yelled " Fire truck!" He was
completely fine after that. He says he could hear all of us but couldn't
move. I suspect he had a TIA, or mini stroke. In addition to
Parkinson's, he also has atrial fib. Anyway, the paramedics were
surprised to see him alert and asked if I had done anything. I told them
I had done some Chinese medicine/energy medicine techniques. They looked
bemused. Not sure what they thought - you know how that goes- but
anyway, Dad came around. So, another success story.
[Note: A week later, Gail wrote: "Everyone is still
talking about it, including my dad!"]

To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate
Donna talks about the Swine Flu.
While I have strong opinions on this and personally am not getting the
H1N1 vaccine or encouraging anyone in my family to get it, there are
differing opinions from competent, caring, respectable health care
professionals, and individual circumstances and risk factors may also be
part of the equation. I think Dr. Oz offers a
balanced discussion on the
question. There is also a lot of sober discussion about how much
fear has been generated around the Swine Flu "epidemic,"
including the biggest push for immunization since Polio. Is this Big
Pharm flexing its muscles to feed its pockets or are the scare tactics
justified? I found the article Swine Flue Fact vs. Fears to provide a good brief overview of what is
known. I cannot advise what you should do regarding the vaccine,
but I can suggest that keeping your immune system healthy and strong is
the first line of defense against any infectious illness.
Besides the ultra obvious, such as keeping your hands clean, this
1. Regardless of the pressures on you in our fast-paced world, making
choices that minimize chronic stress should be at the top of your
priority list. If you lose your health, it doesn't matter how
important it was to do all those other things. They won't get
done. So find a reasonable balance and commit yourself to
2. Don't leave your energies in a homolateral pattern (Energy
Medicine, p. 250)!!! Do plenty of stretch and cross over
patterns throughout the day (pp. 187 - 203).
3. The Five Minute Energy Routine (Energy Medicine, Chapter
3) is designed to keep your immune system strong. I recommend that you do it
daily, that in times of stress or vulnerability you do it a couple of
times each day, and that in addition you do it or parts of it at any time
you are feeling particularly stressed.
Working your lymphatic reflex points moves toxins out of your body and is
particularly supportive of optimal immune system functioning.
4. If you sense you are starting to come down with a cold or worse,
add: The Triple Warmer Smoothie, Connecting Heaven and Earth,
flushing spleen & lung meridians, breathing deeply while tapping on
the meridian endpoints, and any other techniques in the book which
particularly call to you!
5. Rest! Certainly if you feel something coming on, do not
wait for it to be screaming at you before you pay attention. I like
to start with a long hot bath! I do my emergency energy
exercises in the tub. One of my favorites, which helps the lungs and
is a good flu preventive, is to cross my arms, push my thumbs into my
mid-arms, and place my elbows into my inner thighs, while they are
supported by the bathtub sides. And feeling great or feeling down,
be sure you are getting enough sleep. That is one of the most basic
choices you can make to support your health.
6. Eat well: Although your diet
is obviously another basic set of choices for supporting your health,
also remember that there are no guidelines, no
generalizations, that can tell you what your unique body needs or what it
needs at a particular time. Energy testing is a great tool for
finding a good nutritional balance (Energy Medicine, Chapter
2). As David is fond of saying, "Test before you
ingest." Same with vitamins and supplements, including those
that strengthen the immune system.
7. Use your body! Our ancestors were not sedentary creatures
and your body did not evolve to spend 8 hours/day at a computer. If
your job requires you to be at a desk, take frequent brief breaks where
you move vigorously. Breath fresh air when possible. And as it is
with diet, different bodies need and thrive best with different kinds of
When They Attack This Hard, They Must Be
Taking Us Seriously
David Feinstein, Ph.D.
For about a decade, I've wondered when I'd wind up in the cross hairs of
Quackwatch or a similar group. While I started my career in fairly
conventional circles (my first academic appointment, when I was 23, was
in the Department of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins, where I taught for 7
years), once I started writing about energy healing, I figured it was
only a matter of time before public attacks from establishment thinkers
would become another of my interesting problems. That time has
Among Donna Eden's and my proudest achievements of the past year, right
up there with our new books on energy medicine having just won four
national Gold book awards (in the 2008 U.S. Book News and 2009
Nautilus competitions), was to have an article published in one of the
American Psychological Association's flagship clinical journals
(Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training) making the
case that the preliminary scientific evidence indicates that energy
psychology is indeed effective.
Not surprisingly, since one of the functions of top APA publications is
gatekeeping, the journal received two scathing formal reviews of the
article. I was allowed to write a defense. All three pieces
were published in Psychotherapy last June. To see the defense
