I have put these in an order of emphasis not because any on the list are not helpful but because I know that time may be of the essence to my readers:
*****The Holy Bible I recommend you invest in a good Word Study Concordance and/or a Young’s Literal Translation and/or a Greek Interlinear New Testament and/or use good Bible software like www.bluewordbible.com or www.biblegateway.com (these are free) or the one I use (not free), WordSearch.
****Heal Them All by Rev. Cheryl Schang. Easy to read, theologically sound, totally encouraging. I wish I had found it sooner. This book will help you understand Scripture regarding healing.
****God’s Creative Power for Healing by Charles Capps comes in pamphlet/booklet or in a nice bonded leather “pocket book”…I have used this book to turn back relapse “attacks”. ESSENTIAL! Read it like taking medicine.
***Health and Wholeness Through The Holy Communion and Right Believing two books by Joseph Prince. VERY Important insights. Life saving discernment!
***Healing Bible Study by Kenneth E Hagin This book, with the Bible, saved my life. Don’t be afraid of this book even if your “church denomination” doesn’t study
Hagin. His own testimony is woven throughout this book and it is a faith building
dynamo. Remember, “We overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony.”
***Release the Power of Jesus and Strengthen Yourself in the Lord by Bill Johnson, Sr. Pastor Bethel Church, Redding, CA. Any of Johnson’s books are beyond description for building Biblical faith. Every sentence is rich and anointed. His teaching is so sensitive to Holy Spirit and so practical for life that I really cannot describe the impact. I sense that it may be so profound that every reader will come away feeling it was written just for them at a time such as this. Bill Johnson is lead pastor at Bethel Church, Redding, CA.
***The Hidden Messages in Water by Masuru Emoto Great insights that do not conflict with Scripture or Science…amazing photographs. This book has meant a great deal to me.
***The Essential Guide to Healing by Randy Clark and Bill Johnson. The title says it all. These pastors have powerful healing ministries all over the world. I believe you will find this book helpful for yourself and your sharing your healing to encourage others after you have returned to health.
**Bodily Healing and The Atonement by T.J. McCrossen (reprint edited by K. Hagin and R. Hicks). It is true to the original book of this renowned Greek scholar and minister, TJ McCrossan.
**Christ the Healer by F.F. Bosworth. Classic and profound.
**Jesus Manifesto by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola. Seek the Healer and be healed.
**Healed of Cancer by Dodie Osteen Healing Scriptures and an amazing testimony
**Be Healed by Marilyn Hickey. Served me well early in my search.
**Healing Scriptures by Kenneth E. Hagin. I am not sure where I would be without this man’s faith building and soundly Scriptural teaching to say nothing of his own testimony.
**Be Healed in Jesus’ Name by Joyce Meyer. A book of healing Scriptures with notes.
**Quantum Faith by Annette Capps. Simple but sound explanation of quantum physics and its impact on faith….very sound Scripturally. I re-read it occasionally.
**Keys to Taking Your Quantum Leap by David VanKoervering. This book has a good bibliography but Dr. VanKoervering is a Christian physicist with a powerful personal healing testimony. He brings the physical and spiritual together in a way, I believe, anyone can understand it. He applies it to healing with great insight.
**Quantum Healing and Quantum Prayer two books by Becky and David VanKoervering
**The Fourth Dimension by David (Paul) Youngii Cho. Good book on praying effectively and faith building. I share his prayer teaching at length in the book.
**The Meal that Heals by Perry Stone. Important teaching about Holy Communion!
*Your Empowering Spirit by Gary Sinclair can be downloaded free online. Google it. Sinclair is a Christian who teaches soul awareness for healing. He has a strong personal testimony of healing from severe MS and congenital lung malformation.
*Real Faith for Healing by Charles S. Price. A life changing book by one of “God’s Generals”. Classically written so not an easy read although profound.
*Insights into Cancer by Henry W. Wright (also author of long time best seller A More Excellent Way to Be in Health ). www.beinhealth.com. Wright deals with Spiritual and science. His larger book is a compilation of lectures.
*Prison to Praise and From Fear to Faith (two books) by Merlin Coruthers. Life changing content. Coruthers was a WWII Paratrooper, aide to Eisenhower, and Chaplain. His books were widely circulated in mid/late 1900’s and they are powerful and ageless.
*The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things by Larry Dossey, M.D. An encouraging book in sort of a conversational way. Good insights to apply.
These and more resources are listed here and on my other blog, RealHealthHope.com
Other Faith Building Resources
“Healing School” by Katie Souza of ExpectedEndMinistries.com. Katie has some of her teachings “free” on the website link cited here. She also has an extraordinary testimony. I also highly recommend her teaching, “How to Stay Un-Offendable” and “Pick Up Your Mat”.
“Obtaining Your Healing” by Dr. Nasir Siddicki and Anita Siddicki Both have extraordinary healing testimonies. WidsomMinistries.org
“Eight Ways God Heals” CD by Marilyn Hickey MarilynAndSarah.com
Many resources at iBetheltv.com. Regardless of your “church home”, I highly recommend you subscribe to the free podcasts of the weekly sermons from Bethel
Church, Redding, CA. The live streams of their services are also amazing and the
worship is highly anointed. You WILL be equipped and empowered
Books with Scientific Information and Focus
These are not necessarily in an order of significance but I have starred a few that have been particularly helpful to me.
Questioning Chemotherapy by Ralph W. Moss PhD. Note: I’m amazed that people rush into this option while still “in shock” and often while recovering from major surgery……and without a second opinion or any reasonable idea what chemotherapy actually is–does–and does NOT do. It’s the same with radiation. There are questions patients should ask.
Cancer Therapy: The Independent Consumer’s Guide to Non-Toxic Treatment and Prevention by Ralph W. Moss PhD. Moss began his career as a medical reporter and continues it as an independent investigative reporter focusing on cancer.
Cancer-Gate by Samuel S. Epstein, M.D. This doctor explains what the cancer industry doesn’t want the public to know about the success rates and long term effects of treatment.
Death by Medicine by Dr. Gary Null, PhD with Dr. Martin Feldman, M.D., Dr. Debora Rasio, M.D. and Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D. Information we should know for making treatment and health care choices–not a bashing of medical science but an objective view.
**Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs by Dr. Harvey Bigelsen, M.D. I thought the title “unfortunate” because it will probably keep many doctors from reading the book; however, Bigelsen, a surgeon, writes sensitively and candidly and explains a great deal about how serious surgery really is and why no surgery is minor or routine. His insights into inflammation, I thought, provided critical information not found elsewhere. I wish I had this information 50 years ago. This is not a caustic or bitter book but one of compassion.
Cure or Cover Up? by Henry W. Wright. Important insights into pharmaceuticals.
Malignant Medical Myths by Joel M. Kaufman, Ph.D. Helpful in understanding how the cancer industry uses statistics….good information. I didn’t agree with a few of his own opinions, but his factual reviews are sound and difficult to find published.
***Flax Oil as a True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer and other Diseases by Dr. Johanna Budwig. Don’t let the funky title fool you. You may find this book online free in pdf. VERY important information but harder to read than Dr. Budwig’s other book (below).
****Cancer: The Problem and the Solution by Dr. Johanna Budwig. Easier to read than the above book, this book, using the previously “missing link” of quantum physics regarding solar photons, explains Budwig’s extention of Dr. Ottow Warburg’s Nobel Prize winning work regarding cellular level energy generation and how the flax oil/protein diet delivers the necessary electrons. VERY IMPORTANT!
***The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell II. AMAZING! If you don’t want to plow through the actual study, read the introduction then Part III and appendix.
***Over-the-Counter Natural Cures by Shane Ellison, M.S. I hate the title of this book but the content is sound and this author is “candid” to say the least. He draws on his experience as a pharmaceutical chemist–a profession he found too personally compromising. His Cancer chapter is one of his best (available online free in pdf). He gets a little into “the vernacular”, but he is passionate about the truth. You probably want to buy this book.
**Water for Health, for Healing, for Life by Dr. F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. A Fascinating and helpful book. He actually conducted a scientific study while a political prisoner in an Iranian prison. He gave up early release to finish the study.
**The Omega-3 Miracle by Garry Gordon, M.D., D.O. and Herb Joiner-Bey, N.D. A good deal of information about fatty acids as protection against disease including cancer. A good book to put more science with Dr. Budwig’s work.
**Beta Glucan: Nature’s Secret by Dr. Vaclav Vetvicka, PhD (foremost researcher on the glyco-nutrient, Beta 1.3d Glucan , Dr. Vetvicka is at University of Louisville, KY). This book may be scientifically tedious for some, but there is a website that may simplify main points. www.glucan.us
The pH Balance Diet by Vyas and LeQuesne. I refer to this book occasionally.
**The Acid Alkaline Food Guide: A Quick Reference to Foods & Their Effect on pH Levels by Brown and Trivieri, Jr. The handiest reference book on acid/alkaline balance that I’ve found.
*Anatomy of an Illness as Perceived by the Patient by Norman Cousins. This is a very interesting book with insights only a personal experience can yield. As a world renown journalist, Cousins interjects vignettes of what he learned from people like Pablo Casals and Dr. Albert Schweitzer and the lessons are profound and applicable to us today for soul healing.
**Love, Medicine & Miracles by Bernie S. Siegel, M.D. Dr. Siegel, a surgeon, learned a great deal about what he terms, “self healing”, from his “exceptional patients” who refused to let their medical issues kill them. He shares what he learned.
***Who Switched Off My Brain? – New Edition by Dr. Caroline Leaf, PhD. Leaf is a Christian psychologist who has a way of teaching complex and important brain mechanisms in a way a layman can apply in order to move into wholeness.
****Foods to Fight Cancer–Essential Foods to Help Prevent Cancer by Richard Beliveau, PhD and Denis Gingras, PhD. This book is extremely well presented and I would say almost a MUST for the library of a person serious about eating to “slam the door on cancer”. It is a quick reference book that explains why.
**The Hallelujah Diet by George Malkmus. This book is chocked full of information both Biblical and Scientific–and personal experience. Malkmus’ own testimony is a faith builder. The website www.hacres.org is a MUST visit. They teach all kinds of things about food including recipes and gardening tips. I use their BarleyMax powder product–just a tsp in daily vegetable juice.
**Recipes for Life by Rhonda J. Malkmus. Out of print for a while, this is a cookbook chocked full of information about why, what and how to cook and eat a diet of delicious foods–mostly raw and entirely plant based. I cannot imagine being without this book even though the Hallelujah Acres website gives away many recipes.
***Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices, Diet and Salad, Become Younger…. Three different books by Dr. N. W. Walker, D. Sc. (like a British PhD). Just get the “Juice Book” and do it. He has an amazing testimony. These are old and ageless books. They encouraged me to “go ahead and make fresh vegetable juice”….I’m sorry I waited to “juice” because it makes me feel incredible.
***Anticancer: A New Way of Life by David Servan Schreiber, M.D., PhD and healed of cancer himself. This book is extremely helpful. Being an M.D., the writer has difficulty giving up some of his allopathic medicine indoctrination but he eventually does so without saying so. He does good work on “Neutraceuticals”….a word he coined to point out foods that MUST be eaten for health and why. This is not another “what not to eat and not to do” book but a “what to eat and what to do–including attitude.”
***Cancer-Free: Your Guide to Gentle, Non-toxic Healing (2nd ed) by Bill Henderson.
Note: This book was sent to me as though I had ordered it from Amazon.com, but
I actually had not ordered it. It got my program “jump started” while I
jumped into my own research. I read a lot of the resources cited in this
book. I did not subscribe to everything in the book but it taught me much–
however, I did not get into “alternative treatments”.
***Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, PhD. An easy to read and fascinatingly edifying book about biology revelations since Einstein et al’s discovery of quantum physics. Lipton puts it all in layman’s terms. I consider it a must read for anyone who wants to understand where medicine must go…and cannot avoid going….and soon. IMPORTANT CELL MEMBRANE INFORMATION WITH EASY ILLUSTRATIONS.
***Molecules of Emotion by Dr. Candace B. Pert (Johns Hopkins, National Institute of Health, and George Washington U). This research scientist discovered important protein receptors on cells that explains the impact of emotions on health and, further, verified the mind/body connection in health.
**Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d by Dr. Candace B. Pert (see above)
***The Case for Alternative Health Care–Understanding, Surviving, and Thriving in the Midst of Our Collapsing Health Care System by Thomas K. Okler, P.T. This book explains the “dry (healthy) state” and “wet (disease) state” I discuss and much more. Ockler has been on both sides of the health care industry and has great insight. Easier to read than Dr. C.S. West’s definitive book on this subject.
The Golden Seven Plus One by Dr. C. Samuel West N.D and chemist. The book that pulled together the rest of my research into sequential descriptions of the conditions that describe health and disease at the cellular (and ultimately may be out of print but I found it used on Amazon.com . The formulas for Healthy State and Disease State I use in my seminar presentation come from this book. A great resource but it takes a lot of time to work through.
**The Power of Your Words by Gossett and Kenyon. Important subject well explained.
*Your Body Believes Every Word You Say by Barbara Levine. She uses her own testimony to illustrate. Good information and easier to follow than some other books on this topic.
** Rethinking Pasteur’s Germ Theory by Nancy Appleton (also author of Lick the Sugar Habit, which I have not yet read). This is an engaging and well researched book that deals with both individual homeostasis but also the need for changing medical paradigm. There is information in this book about infectious disease that you won’t readily find elsewhere….yet.
Rethinking Cancer and Detoxification (two books) by Ruth Sackman. I gleaned MUCH good information from this book and found other resources to check out. It very much stresses alternative “cures”. Sackman founded the Foundation for Alternative Cancer Treatment. www.rethinkingcancer.org
Sick and Tired? Reclaim Your Inner Terrain by Robert O. Young, Ph.D and Shelley R Young. L.M.T. There is a great deal of information about the fallacies within “the germ theory” and much explanation of the power and importance of a healthy inner terrain. It would have been a stronger book had the writers not seemed to try to “explain around God” on some points. They also don’t appreciate mushrooms which most other resources do.
Beating Cancer With Nutrition by Dr. Patrick Quillin. Quillen. Has a great deal of education and hands on experience and there is good information to be gleaned from this book. I found myself needing to go to other sources for more information on topics skimmed over in this book. I was not comfortable with all the embracing of the “remission” concept.
