Musician, Heal Thyself
Annette did a brilliant job of allowing the reader into her confidences and bravely sharing some of her experiences as she battled with CFS. I also commend her for taking the time to compile so many experts and information on the subject matter.
Personally I was especially drawn to the sections that dealt with self-healing in the form of meditation and hypnotherapy. I felt as if both Annette and the included experts did a great job of opening the door for further dialogue, as well as providing a taste and additional resources, which in many cases included the opportunity to test out methods for a free trial to see if it may be a right fit for the reader.
I loved that although the focus of this book was focused upon CFS, that it could be useful to anyone that needs self-healing for any ailment, mental or physical in their life. I don’t think that we can ever have enough tools or options in the search for always being the healthiest and most efficient version of ourselves.
Although I personally do not suffer from CFS, I could see how given the current society that we live in and how much stress we place upon ourselves in our daily lives, that many of us may not be too far from encountering CFS-like symptoms or ailments. Better stress management is useful for everyone.
My only negative comments are that there were a couple of expert sections that got a little dry for me, but may be very enlightening and interesting to someone that was actually suffering from CFS. Overall, I feel as though Annette did a wonderful job of presenting the facts, information, possible solutions in a quick, easy to read format.
I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars, and would definitely recommend it, in part or in whole to anyone looking for self-healing, higher level of consciousness, and for a great opening reference guide to CFS, and any associated healing methods.
