From the Back Cover
Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive explanation of how to unlock the hidden power within every one of us. This power, our LIFE ENERGY, determines our mental and physical states — and Dr. John Diamond shows how to unleash this energy.
You can use LIFE ENERGY to:
Lead a more productive, creative, and happy life
Achieve your full potential
Deal positively with mental and physical stress
Reduce negative emotional states (hatred, anger, jealousy etc.) and increase positive emotions (love, faith, courage etc.)
Prevent and overcome illness and maintain good health
Look younger as you learn to erase the lines of self-doubt and unhappiness from your face
Dr. Diamond’s discovery of how to release LIFE ENERGY is based on the twelve acupuncture meridians, each of which relates to a specific emotional state. Using the simple muscle test described in this book, you can assess these emotional states in yourself or anyone else. Then, by practising a short daily meditational program, you will keep your emotions and meridians balanced so that you achieve maximum LIFE ENERGY and enjoy mental and physical well-being and harmony every day of your life.

One of the foremost senior holistic healers, Dr. Diamond’s remarkable body of work, which includes his discovery of the link between the acupuncture meridians and the emotions, embraces a wide range of disciplines, the result of over fifty years of research and clinical practice. He began his career in psychiatry but expanded into holistic medicine, concentrating on the totality of the sufferer. In his fifty years of practice, he has increasingly recognized that there is within us a great healing force, Life Energy, the healing power within. With his increasing involvement with this concept, his research has led him to concentrate on the enhancement of the sufferer’s Life Energy so as to actuate his own innate Healing Power.
