Expecting Adam: A True Story of Birth, Rebirth, and Everyday Magic

By Martha Beck, Harmony, 2011

Expecting Adam is an autobiographical tale of an academically oriented Harvard couple who conceive a baby with Down’s syndrome and decide to carry him to term. Despite everything Martha Beck and her husband John know about themselves and their belief system, when Martha gets accidentally pregnant and the fetus is discovered to have Down’s syndrome, the Becks find they cannot even consider abortion. The presence of the fetus that they each, privately, believe is a familiar being named Adam is too strong. As Martha’s terribly difficult pregnancy progresses, odd coincidences and paranormal experiences begin to occur for both Martha and John, though for months they don’t share them with each other. Martha’s pregnancy and Adam (once born) become the catalyst for tremendous life changes for the Becks. – Ericka Lutz

 

Radical Healing: Integrating the World’s Great Therapeutic Traditions to Create a New Transformative Medicine

Drawing on 30 years of practice and medical studies this brilliant book is a cause for celebration for anyone interested in learning about different schools of Eastern and Western healing traditions. Radical Healing presents practical, well proven techniques for self-healing and transformation, inspiring case histories and specific tools, that help us go beyond labels (infertile) and give us a wide range of options.

Spontaneous Healing: How to Discover and Embrace Your Body’s Natural Ability to Maintain and Heal Itself

By Andrew Weil, M.D., The Ballantine Publishing Group, 1997

For anyone looking to validate the idea of optimizing your inner healing system this is a double must read. Although this book is a classic, I find that many people even if they have read it at some point, have not really utilized it to its fullest. In order to do that you will want to read and reread it for inspiration and as a source of ongoing guidance for the rest of your life. Through discussion of topics such as, “Protecting Yourself from Toxins, Seven Strategies of Successful Patients,” and through case histories of his patients, Dr Weil gets us to appreciate the incredible self-healing mechanism within the human body.
