Before I move into talking about this book, I want to tell you that before I published this post, I tried Grammarly’s plagiarism checker free of charge because hey, Santa’s coming soon and I wanna make sure I’m on the Nice List!
Now then, back to business. The Healing Code, by Alexander Loyd, PhD, ND with Ben Johnson, MC, DO, NMD introduces a new approach to energy healing that they have named The Healing Code.
This book will appeal to those who are interested in alternative health care and in taking personal responsibility for their own health. It may also appeal to those who are strong supporters of allopathic medicine but who have an open mind to other complimentary approaches. Those who decry alternative healing will, no doubt, find much to scoff at.
Loyd and Johnson claim to have discovered a previously unknown immune system that has the potential to heal physical, emotional and spiritual challenges when activated with their technique. They maintain that any and all disease is caused by stress stored in the form of cellular memories. The first three-quarters of the book builds a case to support the validity of the authors’ findings and of the Healing Code technique. The doctors provide their personal case histories, testimonials from others who have experienced healings and scientific validation based on the work of scientists such as Dr. Bruce Lipton.
In the last quarter of the book, Loyd and Johnson explain the Healing Code and demonstrate through text and drawings how to apply the technique. They refer to the code provided in the book as the Universal Healing Code. When used for six minutes, three times daily, the authors claim that healings will occur. The time required to heal varies depending on the individual and the nature of the problem.
The authors make the disclaimer that the Healing Code does not replace medical care, nor does it diagnose, nor does it heal the physical body. Their premise is that the code removes an energetic charge in the form of cellular memories, and this in turn, frees the body to heal itself. The book also provides a ten second procedure that when used two or three times a day, will deal with stress as it is happening, or situational stress, as the authors call it.
Loyd and Johnson write from a Christian perspective. They maintain that their spiritual healing technique is supported Biblically and does nothing to violate their Christian beliefs. This need not be a deterrent to non-Christians. Those with other beliefs will find it simple enough to use the codes in the context of their own faith, whatever that faith may be.
Skeptics, obviously, will regard the Healing Codes as hooey, and it is not my role or my intention to change their minds. Those who are open to trying this approach may find the technique a little confusing based on the explanations in the book. Personally, I found it necessary to search for YouTube videos demonstrating the proper use of the hand positions. I believe that the authors could have done a better job of explaining the procedure at that point. Otherwise, I find the book to be well written, well organized and well explained — with the aforementioned exception.
Having read other blog and forum posts from readers, I note that some reviewers see the authors as “money grubbers”. It is true, they do offer custom codes, workbooks and coaching services, and these products and services do not come cheap. However, in my view, the authors have made the Universal Healing Codes available to anyone for the price of a book, and there are plenty of free videos online showing how to do the technique. Having ensured that the codes are therefore available to anyone and everyone, they have a right to generate income by selling the additional add ons, which are luxuries but not necessities.
My recommendation is this: If you are at all opened minded, read the book and try the codes. You have nothing to lose and much to gain.
