For Silvia Casabianca most of our remedies for discomfort and disease are at odds with the body's natural responses to various types of invasion or imbalance. In her view, much of what is labeled conventional medicine overlooks and often hampers the necessary and natural communication between organs and the flow of vital energy that maintains health. The first section of the book, The New Perspectives, surveys holistic approaches to well-being. The second section, The Body Wisdom, explores the various bodily systems and illustrates their functions and interrelationships. She elaborates the concept of an inner healer, which is the key to physical and psychic well-being. Finally, in the third section, Casabianca, a Reiki Master, introduces readers to Reiki and the Art of Healing, sharing with the reader her fascination for the multidimensional human body, and current knowledge about health and illness gained through being a physician, a psychotherapist and a Reiki teacher.
