Lisa Samet, ND, is a well-known health practitioner who has appeared on the Dr. Oz show to promote homoeopathy and naturopathic healing (http://www.lisasamet.com). She has an international practice based in Montreal, specializing in homoeopathy, emotional wellness, nutrition & lifestyle optimization. When emotional issues are an obstacle to healing, Dr Samet uses the Emotional Repatterning techniques presented in her book to help patients uncover and rebalance the deep, subconscious beliefs that often underlie their unhappiness, “stuckness” and mental or physical pain. The results have been nothing short of life-changing! She has written this book to broaden access to the tools that she uses in her practice to help people change their perspectives, subconscious beliefs and ultimately suffer less!
After graduating from the The University of Pennsylvania, followed by 10 years in marketing with Proctor & Gamble, Dr. Samet realized that her real love was naturopathic healing. She received her Doctorate from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1998 and has been in private practice since then. Naturopathic healing focuses on prevention and using natural approaches to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself. The primary goals of the naturopathic approach are to address the cause of illness rather than simply treat or suppress symptoms, and to treat the patient as a whole – physically, mentally, and emotionally – to regain optimal health.
Dr. Samet publishes a monthly newsletter with over 1,000 subscribers and is the featured author of “Dr Samet’s Insights,” a monthly blog on the Washington Homeopathic Products website, which receives approximately 60,000 visits per month. She’s a lecturer and presenter of webinars on various topics, including Emotional Repatterning, homeopathy, menopause, and the aging brain.
We have access to many tools to help us deal with the rising tide of anxiety and depression: psychotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), medication, meditation, positive affirmations. These methodologies are increasingly popular and have been able to bring some relief to many. But in terms of permanent, deep change, these options are sorely limited because they work solely with the conscious mind rather than with the underlying subconscious beliefs that drive our behavior. Recent research on the brain has revealed that we are only aware of 5% of our brain activity, while the other 95% is subconscious. So, unless we work with both our conscious mind as well as our subconscious mind, we may find some decrease in our pain, but we will continue to struggle.
Emotional Repatterning: Healing Emotional Pain by Rewiring the Brain provides insights, stories and examples from Lisa Samet’s life and the lives of her patients, as well as practical tools to uncover the subconscious beliefs that are holding us back. It deepens the reader’s understanding of their own mind – the patterns of thinking and deep-seated beliefs that keep them feeling stuck and unhappy – and teaches skills to change both their thinking at the conscious level and their beliefs at the subconscious level.
