Praise for Radical Healing:

"Radical Healing is a stunning achievement. By integrating the major healing and wisdom traditions, Dr. Ballentine extends the horizons of our understanding of health, enabling us to achieve levels of well-being we might never have imagined. This book will be an instant classic."

- Deepak Chopra, MD; best-selling author and the founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing

"Radical Healing presents a wonderful blend of the world's most dynamic healing methods spiced with many practical keys for their personal application."

- David Frawley, author of Yoga and Ayurveda

"Radical Healing is a masterpiece. Rudolph Ballentine has given us a passionate, inspiring, profoundly insightful, and completely usable resource through which we can understand and appreciate the power in the classic healing traditions. The information in this book is priceless, and I love his stories of healings. Radical Healing will help you heal, too."

- Caroline Myss, PhD, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Why People Don't Heal and How They Can

"Dr. Ballentine's original, vitally important guide for working with your emotions and your body is radical in its simplicity, clarity, and effectiveness. His book empowers you to become a partner in your own healing."

- Mona Lisa Schulz, MD, PhD, author of Awakening Intuition

"This book is not about radical healing but sensible healing. It reminds me that much of what we call New Age healing is really Age Old healing. It is a source of wisdom and empowerment for every individual. One need not agree with every word to realize it is an excellent resource and a dose of medicine that everyone can enjoy taking. The side effects are all beneficial."

- Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles
