From dust jacket: Healing, the Divine Art traces the history of healing as it has descended to us from the most primitive times. We meet the witch doctor, with his herbs and fetishes, his medicine songs and dances, and we find in him the rudiments of the priest-physician-psychologist. Healing methods of the American Indian medicine men are discussed--their attainments in hypnosis, sand-painting, and their use of prayer, ritual and song. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, the healing cults of Greece, the great Hippocratic oath, oracles and healing shrines, medicine in the Roman Empire, the Christian ministry of healing--these are some of the fascinating landmarks in the descent of man's search for health. Modern survivals of old ways are analyzed, together with their real or imaginary benefits. What are the facts about magnetic healing, faith healing, mental healing, suggestive and auto-suggestive therapy, healing by affirmation, and the medical speculations of the alchemists and Rosicrucians? This book summarizes the long-neglected aspects of esoteric physicology and anatomy, including the etheric bodies of man and nature, the human will, the factor of conscience, and the invisible energies behind the physical processes of the body. There is a special section on the pineal gland and the mental focus, and a chapter on the directing of consciousness and the effects of mental attitudes on health. The book concludes with a group of case histories, showing how the individual causes many of his health problems, especially those arising from mental and emotional complications, and emphasizes practical means of self-help based upon experience.
