"We are the keepers of an intuitive intelligence so powerful it can tell us how to heal," writes psychiatrist and practicing intuitive Judith Orloff, M.D. "We all possess within us an intuitive healing code that contains the blueprints for our health and happiness, and for the survival of everything that is good here on earth." Her aim is to teach you how to tap into and train your own intuitive powers and use them for your well-being. She divides the book into three parts: "The Body," "Emotions and Relationships," and "Sexual Wellness." She teaches five steps to intuitive healing, which she defines as "listening to your body's signals--your inner voice and heart, your spiritual connection--to find out how to become more physically, emotionally, and sexually whole." According to Orloff, these steps apply to every health challenge, as well as every emotional and sexual issue:
  • Notice your beliefs.
  • Be in your body.
  • Sense your body's subtle energy.
  • Ask for inner guidance.
  • Listen to your dreams.

Orloff returns to these steps in every chapter, offering more explanation, a different slant, practical exercises, and ways to apply each step to different areas of your life. For example, in the helpful "Sacred Healing Partnerships" chapter, she applies these steps to choosing the right health practitioner. Orloff is articulate and warm, inviting you to make her world your own with clear explanations, practical strategies, and numerous detailed, personal anecdotes. --Joan Price "We are the keepers of an intuitive intelligence so powerful it can tell us how to heal." In her groundbreaking new book, Dr. Judith Orloff leads readers to the heart of a radical revolution in health care: the union of medicine and intuition, of body, mind, and soul. We're all born with the gift of intuition; many of us have long ago blocked that "indisputable sense of rightness" which is our truest inner compass.

Dr. Orloff's guide will show you how to recapture, nurture, and affirm your intuitive ability, so that you can utilize it to help heal yourself. Intuition plays an indispensable role in self-diagnosis, pain control, immune response, and recovery from acute and chronic illness; it can lead you to breakthroughs in anxiety, panic, depression, and other emotional blockages, even when traditional psychotherapy has failed. Intuition also offers insights into the use of medications and the selection of the right healer for your needs. Further, it is integral for sexual healing, since sexuality is a potent connector and energy source for clarifying spirituality and improving vitality.

Dr. Orloff introduces five practical steps she uses in her own life and teaches to patients which illustrate how to harness the power of intuition to heal. You'll learn to clarify your beliefs, listen to your body's messages, access inner guidance, sense subtle energy, and interpret your dreams. Practicing these steps you'll recognize early warning signals and act on them to help prevent illness. You'll have skills to uncover important information from meditation and remote viewing (a way of intuitively tuning in) to make sense of confusing signals. The insights you'll gain from these tools will lend reason, compassion, and meaning to events such as illness, loss, or despair. Following Dr. Orloff's simple, clear instructions, illustrated with examples from her own experience and psychiatric practice, you'll recapture a sense of vision that will bring vibrance to all that you do.

"Our intuition can open us up to our spirituality and show us how to be more healthy and whole," writes Dr. Orloff. "If you're in good health, you'll want to know about intuition because it can help you stay well and recognize messages that prevent illness. If you or your loved ones need healing, you'll also want intuition to show the way." Written with abundant warmth, humor, and compassion, this guide is your companion to a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Dr. Judith Orloff's "GUIDE TO INTUITIVE HEALING" is a wonderful contribution to the educational data. The book brings together, in one practical and easy to follow method, all the information and techniques which will help you to live a healthier and more purposeful life. Orloff is the real physician who can put you in touch with the power of self healing on all levels and will enable you to see everything about the emotional, physical and sexual aspects in a new light. HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE! - Charles Zammit Ph.D., author of MUSIC - FOR BETTER HEALTH AND BETTER LIVING and SOUND METHODS IN PIANO PEDAGOGY's

“I have had problems with bone spurs on my feet for almost twenty years. I had a flare up three weeks ago that was so excruciatingly painful, I couldn't sleep. I tried ibuprofen, soaking in ice water, Chinese acupuncture, nothing helped. I was so desperate, I was considering surgery. Then, browsing for something to read while I recover, I noticed DR JUDITH ORLOFF'S GUIDE TO INTUITIVE HEALING. The title piqued my interest, and I needed another purchase to get my order over $25 for free shipping. I ordered the book, followed instructions and the swelling disappeared in 3 days. Read this book!” – Peter D. Edwards

“I find Dr. Orloff's books so easy to read and enjoy. She has a way with words that draws me into the stories she shares. I feel comforted by her as I read her words, and I can relate to her journey. She shares so much of her own experience that you feel she is right there with you! Love this book and all her books. She is one of the great teachers and writers of our time!” – L. Brockway

“I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. For me it has been a page-turner. Dr. Orloff's book provided valuable insights in to the power and reality of intuition and spirituality. I recently lost my father and for the past five months, I have experienced almost everything in life differently. My perspective and outlook has been refocused on what's really important in the all too brief journey down here called life.” – Learning Connection

“Dr. Judith Orloff pours her heart and knowledge into this rich guide on how to use our intuition to heal and contend with any situation. A wide range of spiritual disciplines ranging from energy healing, dreams analysis and tantra are tied together in a readable fashion by anecdotes drawn from Dr. Orloff's wealth of experiences. In addition to her work as a psychiatrist, she seems to have "lived and seen it all" (almost) ranging from psychic visions at a young age, a near-death experience, the loss of her parents, drugs, to life in a half-way house . She draws on these experiences to create a web of stories and teachings that inspire us to use our intuition for spiritual, physical, psychological and sexual healing. I recommend this book to anyone open to the new paradigm shift that is occurring in our medical system, and particularly to those wanting to integrate and enrichen the various facets of their personal development (aka healing) through intuition. Thank you Dr. Orloff for this great gift.” – Angela Olsen
