With the experience and insight gained as a physician, a mental health counselor and a Reiki Master, Silvia Casabianca explains how the body successfully adapts to stressors once and again until the body is weakened or the environmental challenges have accumulated to the point of overwhelming the system. That there is an intelligent inner healer that keeps optimal health if we support it with proper nutrition, physical activity and stress reduction practices, is the main tenet of this book.
"Silvia Casabianca brings her experience as a medical "jungle doctor" in Colombia to her deep knowledge of alternative medicine. The result is the best book I have read about Reiki, and other alternative medical approaches, which is very wise, not riddled with useless dogma, and centered in her continuing appreciation of what science has taught us. Definitely 5 stars." Roger Dunnell.
Does illness really exist? In this book by Reiki Master Silvia Casabianca, she explores health and illness from a different perspective. She sees illness as the expression of a bodily imbalance that can be resolved by transforming our lifestyle. And when she says body, she talks about its multiple dimensions: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

"I want to propose," says Silvia Casabianca, that "health is a state of maximum consciousness and interconnectedness that allows our soul to freely flow with no attachment to what we were in the past or what we possess or what we might become or what we wished but never happened. This special state of consciousness has a correspondence in each dimension of our being; at the biological level as optimal communication between organs, and in the subtle bodies as the unobstructed flow of vital energy and spiritual harmony. In this state, the inner healer can perform its role and our mind can accept the ebb and flow of our natural cycles, listening and learning from the body."

“This is the best overview of holistic methods of healing and the balance between the body's organs and systems that I have ever read. Silvia Casabianca is to be commended for her knowledge, insight, and ability to explain it all in a beautiful way that also just makes sense. I recommend this book highly.”

“A comprehensive explanation of the relationship between mind, body and spirit. As a bodyworker and reiki practitioner, I have always sought the right words to help clients understand how the different aspects of our humanity influence each other and that change is always possible. In simple language and with great respect, the common ground between the science of western medicine and the spirituality of ancient healing methods is explored. Casabianca's experience as a medical doctor in her native Colombia and her subsequent studies in body/mind health provide a uniquely qualified perspective. This work is the synthesis of her personal journey. Enjoyable and fascinating, I would recommend this to anyone engaged in the health professions or simply interested in deepening their understanding of what it means to be human.”
