"I had not encountered Dr. Thomas Cowan before reviewing this book--boy, have I been missing something ... This book is probably the best self-help guide for the healing arts that has ever been written" --Nancy Parsons,

"Readers will be pleased to know that its author, Dr. Thomas Cowan, combines the best of Eastern and Western esoteric wisdom in the healing arts with the best of modern findings in Western medicine.... This collaboration pulls together a mix of expertise that offers health seekers some truly holistic solutions." --Duncan M. Roads, editor, Nexus magazine

What is the Fourfold Path to Healing? It is a unique, comprehensive view of medicine, a holistic approach to healing that integrates the four aspects of our bodies: the Physical, the Life Force, the Emotional, and the Mental. Its principles are simple: right diet for healing the physical body; beneficial medicines or therapies for the life-force body, healing movement and exercise for the emotional body, and effective thinking activity for the mental body.

Dr. Cowan merges the wisdom of traditional societies, the most modern findings of western medicine and the esoteric teachings of the ancients as he works to answer this most important question: How do we obtain true health?

The Fourfold Path presents a unique, comprehensive view of medicine that will challenge your deepest beliefs, while revealing a practical approach to healing. The "fourfold approach" includes:
  1. Nutrition, using nutrient-dense traditional foods;
  2. Therapeutics through a wide range of nontoxic remedies;
  3. Movement to heal and strengthen the emotions;
  4. Meditation to develop one's powers of objective thought.
