Book of the Month – April 2019

Our April ‘Book of the Month’ is Health and Safety for Spirit Seers, Telepaths and Visionaries: Self-help for Schizophrenia by Dr Anna Cornelia Beyer.

In the midst of what is termed ‘the mental health crisis’ of our generation, an open and positive discussion of mental health is critical. Through thoughtful and open contemplation of schizophrenia, this volume helps destigmatise one of our most widely misunderstood mental health conditions.

This book provides a much-needed, positive, hopeful and holistic perspective on how to cope with schizophrenia. While 51 million people in the world are afflicted with this illness, self-help books on the topic are not in ample supply, and those that do exist are often very dark in outlook. This volume combines knowledge from previous studies, personal accounts, and scientific research today. Topics explored here include an overview on experiences with, and explanations for, schizophrenia; alternative and natural healing tips for psychosis and schizophrenia, including diet and orthomolecular medicine; an overview of alternative therapies; relationship and career advice; how to deal with emergencies; and how to recover after a period of psychosis, among others.

Please see below for a highlight of the praise this book has been receiving:

This thoughtful, comprehensive and well-researched book gives an insiders’ view on what it is like to experience psychosis, the pitfalls, how to avoid them and how to get better. It will be remarkably helpful for those caught up in the experience, covering all aspects—physical, emotional, spiritual and social, plus the wealth of possible ways to help recover using diet, supplements and medication intelligently to find your way out of the maze. Connie’s own experience and empathetic writing, backed up with a lifetime of real research undertaken in her own quest for wellness will serve as a beacon for others.”
