The Touch of Healing: Energizing Body, Mind, and Spirit with the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu book review/summary. Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese practice that balances your body’s energy by using the fingers and hands. The technique was lost for centuries until a sage named Jiro Maurai came along. He noticed that subjects within spiritual and devotional paintings placed their fingers and hands in certain positions. He dedicated his career to figuring out what these hand positions meant. His research ultimately revealed that each one of our fingers affects 14,400 functions within the body.
Then came along my co-worker and friend Sheralynn, who had mentioned Dr. Moffat to me and recommended her, as she had used her with her nine month old daughter ten years ago for an illness she too could not get an answer for. She swore by her, and said she worked and was so thankful for the change in quality of life for her daughter that not a day had passed where she wasn’t thankful she had called her. I did some research on her, and of course was sceptical, as was my partner. We are both science driven, like results that have sound explanations, and are something we can measure and fully understand. With that said, I also recognized that that wasn’t working for us, and what was the harm in trying? We had already spent over $7,000, what was the harm in spending significantly less than that, and perhaps getting some sort of answer, or, better yet, getting Stella back to full health?
Michael says, “The more I read and researched, the simpler the answers became.” His research came down ultimately to just seven simple words: EAT FOOD, NOT TOO MUCH, MOSTLY PLANTS. He’s distilled his research into 64 rules and divided the book up into three sections: 1) Part I: What should I eat? (Eat Food) 2) Part II: What kind of food should I eat? (Mostly plants) 3) Part III: How should I eat? (Not too much)
So, a year in review for Michael and I. . .thought I’d include pictures since this is going out in email form this year. Please include me on your Christmas card list. I love reading about your lives and consider you my extended family. We decorate our house with the Christmas cards we receive. They really give us warm fuzzies. . . and we do decorate our house with the cards you send us each year.
Imagine wanting to make cookies and not having the proper food additives to put in them so you send your child or husband to the store to pick up a few of them for you. “Oh, honey, could you pick me up some reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, high fructose corn syrup, malt syrup, caramel color, propylene glycol mono and diesters of fats and fatty acids, soy lecithin, BHT, citric acid, modified corn starch (but we’re already using corn starch—what’s this?), maltodextrin, gum acacia and oh, add in some artificial flavor.” Who makes cookies like these? Well, you’re trying to make Grandma’s Home style Chocolate Brownie cookies of course!
It has always been my theory that the body actually WANTS to be healthy. Autoimmune disease only occurs when all the organs in the body are trashed from excess toxins. Joe was an example of this. His skin broke out into hives around the clock and with any kind of pressure. He itched 24/7/365. I’m sure he wondered how long he had to live or suffer from this malady as many of the chronically ill people do who find my website.
