Here you will find holistic health in Latter-Day-Saint language. Who knew that prophets have spoken about these principles?! This site is about whole person healing and shares what I learned in searching to help my daughter w/ depression, anxiety & bipolar (and later on my son w/ Lyme Disease & co-infections.)

Don't miss the new link to a paper titled "Pornography, Sickness, Evil Spirits and the Priesthood" by Scott Gillespie (found at the bottom of Bro. Poulton's Fascinating Paper on scriptures about power over evil spirits).
The book Healing Arts is for sale below here along with my new book An LDS Approach to Energy Healing. Religious quotes on holistic principles are packed inside my first book Healing Arts - A Gift from God (LDS Insight on the Light of Christ & Energy Medicine). My book Healing Arts validates dozens of complementary health therapies for Christians by uncovering how "Chi" life force energy, chakras, meridians and trapped emotions and other principles fit with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This new book is a "HOW TO" book on one form of Energy Healing. It teaches one approach (while my first book, Healing Arts - A Gift from God contains LDS validation for many energy techniques).
Like my first book, this second book also has two chapters on darkness vs. light. The new book has a few unique lists which may be helpful for facilitators. This book also has practical steps on how to "dance in the rain" even while life's seeming chaos surrounds you. See reviews on the tab above labeled "My NEW book" and then scroll down to that post.
[About 20 copies of the oldest pre-publication books I have left will be sold at cost. They are missing a few updates to lists, the complete bibliography (provided, however, on a separate printout), corrections to two stories, and new quotes about seeing faces in the spirit world. This first pre-publication version did not have the ISBN number on the back or final edits such as right side justification. Leave a message on the contact form on the right sidebar if you are interested in one of these.]
Discover "what else" there is to healing the whole person on my DVD. This is my presentation to the Integrative Mental Health Conference held on Feb. 22, 2014 at the Courtyard Marriott in Layton, UT. The DVD contains over 100 of my power point slides as well as over 20 slides not included in my first book, Healing Arts. The slides are very clear and legible and appear in a separate screen beside the camera on me. The DVD runs 50 minutes and contains information to improve physical as well as mental health. There are almost 500 power point slides in Healing Arts, so it contains much more information. However, the DVD is an overview of the chapters in my first book, Healing Arts, and is great for those who would rather not read. For your information, I sell the DVD at nearly half off at conferences where I speak.

"No, I have absolutely no idea what water is,"
said the fish. "Why do you ask?"
(Eleanor Barrow cartoon in
Quantum Touch by Richard Gordon)
This cartoon makes me laugh because I used to be like that fish. I had no idea that we live in an "ocean" of universal life force energy . That fish represents an over-whelming number of people. If we asked the average Christian if they believed in Chi life force energy they would likely answer "no." That is sad and ironic because Christians & Latter-day Saints use several different terms for "life force energy" -- they just haven't realized it yet! Scriptures use a completely different set of vocabulary to describe the same 'foreign'terms that holistic health practitioners use!
She explained that these treatments involved re-patterning the light around a person, which I later found out was called life-force energy. I read dozens of books about this novel avenue of help as fast as I could. One medical doctor wrote, "healing involved a strengthening of the underlying integrity of an individual's human energies and their re-patterning in a healthier way" (Susan Wagner, M.D., A Doctor's Guide to Therapeutic Touch, 29). We found by experience that techniques which cleared and balanced the subtle energy/unseen light enveloping the body were incredibly helpful for my daughter with depression, severe anxiety & mood swings.
The insistence of the spirit led me to this seemingly unusual help. Initially, I wasn't sure of its compatibility with Christianity. Later on, I found prophets comparing life-force energy to

My name is Tony Stephan, and this is the story
of how my family overcame mental illness, after devastating loss.
In 1994 I had been married to my beloved wife Debbie for 23 years. During that time, we lost her father to suicide. He had struggled with severe depression, and in 1978, fatally overdosed on medications to escape his suffering. Then, sixteen years later, my beloved wife Debbie succumbed to the same fate . . . suicide.
Debbie had been diagnosed with Bipolar Affective Disorder 1 with Rapid Cycling. One day she simply ended it. The pain was unbearable. It was like somebody took a chalkboard eraser and wiped out the most precious part of my life.
It got worse. My son Joseph, fifteen years old, and his older sister, Autumn, were diagnosed with the same

“The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions. One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. He felt the worst had happened, and everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger. He cried out [toward heaven],’ How could you do this to me?'
“Early the next day, he was awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island! It had come to rescue him! 'How did you know I was here?' asked the weary man of his rescuers. 'We saw your smoke signal,' they replied.
The Moral of This Story: It's easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of our pain and suffering. Remember that the next time your little hut seems to be burning to the ground. It just may be a smoke signal that summons the Grace of God.” (I wish I knew the author to credit them.)

I listened to Dr. Kenneth West from South Africa lecture in the fall of 2012 in North Ogden, Utah. He gave me permission to share this power point slide of his publicly.
“Working with scientists from Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico, it became clear there is a hierarchy of function – the longer the wavelength, the more powerful it is. The longest wavelength measurable is called the Boson and, … it controls the hierarchy. Zero Point is at the top of the pyramid and the Boson creates the descending order of power all the way down to the structural level. This illustrates why therapies using the waves higher up the pyramid (like energy work, prayer, sound healing) so often produce results superior to those at the bottom of the pyramid, where surgery and biochemical therapies reside. It is also interesting that the further down the pyramid you go, the greater the risk to the patient, the higher the cost and the more irreversible the changes.” (Dr. Kenneth West, “Stress Addiction,” Odyssey, Issue 2 2012, p 44)
I believe Dr. West explained that the techniques listed above the bottom level are examples of using the wavelengths in bold. The "Hierarchy of Function," portrayed in the pyramid above, summarizes some points in my book, Healing Arts - A Gift from God.
A similar chart titled 5 Levels of Healing by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt is found below (and simplified in my first book on slide # 467. It is also discussed in my second book).

Our trials have purpose in the eyes of God and can bring us closer in love with Him and others. This post is meant to help you understand who you really are. I hope it changes your perception of yourself and any labels you may have been given.
It was helpful for my daughter and I to change our perceptions about mental illness. In the beginning we asked the question 'why?' or 'why me?' Over time, we learned to change the questions we were asking of God to, "What would you have me learn?"
I learned that I may have even chosen to have a daughter labeled wtih a mental illness before I ever came to earth. The idea that we may have chosen our own life learning lessons -- or what we call trials -- is actually a cross cultural pattern found in NDE's around the world. Understanding this can bring hope when facing life's challenges. Remembering who we are, where we've come from and our purpose in coming to earth helps us through happy as well as tough times. Author Roy Mills saw that before being born on earth, “I selected certain life experiences and was taught about them.”
An apostle said something akin to that. Elder Richard G. Scott said, "We lived in the presence of God our Holy Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ in a premortal existence. There we gained an understanding of the Father's plan of salvation and the promise of help when we would be born as mortals on earth. ...So that the period of mortal testing and growth would yield its greatest benefits, you were taught and prepared for the circumstances you would personally encounter in mortality." (Ensign, Nov. 2005) (See also illustration #293 in my book Healing Arts.)
My friend, Kathy Truman, introduced me to Roy Mill's book The Soul's Experience and sent the excerpt below. It is from a chapter titled "The Mighty Spirits." I share this with all of my clients lately and have highlighted portions of it. Enjoy, and get your own copy of this amazing book!
An account of one man’s remembrance of the premortal realm:
We come to live in the physical world so that we can grow spiritually by gaining experience and exercising our free will. Many of those experiences involve hardships which can only happen on earth, because Heaven is a place of perfect love, forgiveness, peace, and tranquility. And these hardships are necessary to help us build faith and exercise the gifts God has given us. Each of us is given a mission to accomplish while we are here, but we are also allowed to select some of the challenges that will bring us growth.
The angels help us choose our experiences, because what we choose must fit with our mission and with God’s overall plan for our lives... They explained that the more difficult a challenge was, the more knowledge and wisdom and love it could bring. I knew that it would be pleasing to God if I dealt with many experiences in a positive way, so I began selecting all kinds of challenges.
While I was in Heaven, I never saw anyone who was depressed, maimed by an accident, or suffering from disease. Our spiritual bodies are always healthy and whole; they are perfect, and our spirits shine with a radiant beauty. Our physical bodies are only a temporary home for our spirits, and nothing can truly harm who we really are. So when I selected my earthly experiences, I had no concern for what they would do to my physical body. I knew that the more I suffered for others, or because of others, the more I would grow in spirit. And with that knowledge, I had a completely different perspective on adversity and the experiences I chose for my own life.
The angels explained to me that an illness or accident triggers a chain of events that can lead to spiritual growth. Some spirits choose a life of extreme sacrifice or nearly unbearable suffering. The light of God shines brightly around these people, and in Heaven they are thought of as mighty spirits, because they come to earth to suffer so that others can grow in understanding and love.
Some mighty spirits choose to be born with severe disabilities such as blindness, deafness, mental illness, Down’s Syndrome, and others. Some choose to be paralyzed or disfigured or disabled later in life by an accident. Others suffer a life-threatening illness such as cancer, or Alzheimer’s. And many brave spirits choose to be born into alcoholic or drug addicted families, or into abusive homes where they suffer and sometimes even die from abuse.
Many of these people who suffer from such challenges live their lives thinking they are inferior or unworthy of love because they look different or don’t have the same abilities as most people, or because they were the victims of abuse. But the truth is that they are mighty spirits who denied themselves and have come to earth to help others grow.
When we see a child who is confined to a wheelchair because of a problem with his or her muscles or nerves or brain, we feel compassion for the child. But the deeper truth is that this individual had compassion for us first, having chosen their condition to help us grow. When we think we are helping the disabled, we are really helping ourselves by learning selflessness, charity, and how to demonstrate our love.
These courageous souls chose their conditions in order to inspire love, compassion, caring, patience, or forgiveness in others. They also suffer to gain experience and knowledge that will help others who face similar challenges, or to help improve conditions by raising public awareness. Like Jesus, the mightiest Spirit of all, these souls suffer in our place so that we can learn, experience, and grow without bearing the same cross they carry.
In Heaven, everyone who chooses to be born on earth is thought of as a courageous spirit. It’s not easy to leave the peace and love of Heaven for the hardships and strife of earth. ..It often takes adversity to shake us up and help us grow, but God wanted His children to be happy in their earthly lives, too. After choosing my life experiences, I was told to also have fun while I was here. This life may be a ‘vale of tears,’ but it is also supposed to be a time of joy. And how much joy we experience is up to us.
When we realize that we, ourselves, chose many of the difficulties in our lives, and that all things happen for a reason, we begin to let go of earthbound thinking. We can give up the crutches we use to fill the emptiness in our live-alcohol, drugs, money, meaningless sex, prestige, and power. When our eyes are opened, we begin to see things as they really are.
We begin to understand that life isn’t cruel or unfair, but is a spiritual journey that leads us to meaning and joy and real happiness. Knowing the truth about ourselves sets us free to be the happy, loving people God wants us to be.
