Your Emotional Type Summary

Your Emotional Type: Key to the Therapies That Will Work for You by Michael A. Jawer (Michael A. Jawer)

* Provides an easy questionnaire to find your emotional type * Identifies the connections between emotional type and 12 common chronic ailments: asthma, allergies, chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, hypertension, irritable bowel, migraines, PTSD, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthiritis and ulcers * Explains which of 7 mind/body healing therapies works best for each emotional type Different people process their feelings in different ways - your emotional style is a fundamental aspect of who you are. It affects more than just your outlook on life; it can affect your well-being as well. Many chronic ailments are not the result of germs or genes but are rooted in our emotional biology. The link between emotional type and health explains why modern medicine - which views treatment as "one size fits all" - often fails to successfully treat chronic pain and illness. Examining the interplay of emotions, chronic illness and pain and treatment success, Michael Jawer and Dr. Marc Micozzi reveal how chronic conditions are intrinsically linked to certain emotional types and how these ailments are best treated by choosing a healing therapy in line with your type. Explaining the emotional ties behind the 12 most common chronic illnesses the authors provide an easy assessment survey that allows you to identify your emotional type as well as the ailments you are susceptible to. Extending this connection between mind and body, they assess 7 alternative healing therapies - acupuncture, hypnosis, biofeedback, meditation, yoga, guided imagery and relaxation techniques - and indicate which methods work best for each emotional type. Empowering you as a patient to seek out the therapies that will work best for you, this book offers a welcome path to effective pain relief and sustainable health.

Your Emotional Type Reviews

"Your Emotional Type, securely grounded in scientific research affirming the inseparable unity of mind and body, enables readers to understand how their own personalities may make them prone to a wide variety of health conditions, from chronic fatigue to hypertension, from migraine to fibromyalgia. Most helpfully, the authors guide people to the therapies most appropriate to each personality type. The book is empowering, helping us to become active agents in our healing rather than being simply the recipients of `cures' from a medical approach that fails to recognize the uniqueness of individuals." * Gabor Mate, M.D., author of When The Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection *
