ACEP & ANMA 2015 Partial Bibliography

Benefits of Energy Psychology & Naturopathy in the Treatment of Autoimmune Disorders
By Anne Merkel

The books listed below give extensive background for what I present in my sessions at the ACEP/ Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology and ANMA/ American Naturopathic Medical Association 2015 Conferences. The data supports basic knowledge of any practitioner wishing to work with the autoimmune audience. While some of these texts refer to the mind-emotion / body connection, others focus on other potential causes of or attributing factors in autoimmune. It is my hypothesis that all suggested “scientifically proven causes” correlate dramatically with underlying emotional factors… and that natural interventions are proving very effective in leading to rebalancing and cure.
