Through symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, abdominal pain, anxiety, depression, and other symptoms, our bodies let us know that we have a problem and that we need to solve it. In The Listening Cure, Dr. Chris Gilbert, assisted by Dr. Haseltine, shows that by using her “giving the body a voice” technique, sufferers can discover what the symptoms mean and how to fix the often hidden reasons for their health problems.

By listening to what our bodies have to say, Dr. Gilbert shows how to achieve long term deep cures versus temporary superficial fixes. Her secrets will become your secrets.

Dr. Chris’s A, B, C’s of Health

How can you stop the pain? Be less hungry? Lose weight? Sleep better?

When you visit your regular physician, very often he or she will spend less than 15 minutes with you and write a quick prescription for a pain killer or a sleeping pill or give you a paper explaining the right diet.

The real questions are: Why are you in pain? Why are you hungry all the time? Why are you gaining weight? Why are you not sleeping well? You will discover the answers to these questions and many more.

Dr. Gilbert will explain the powerful holistic techniques she uses in her office. You will learn how to sleep better, how to improve hormonal balance and orgasms, how to eat and exercise better and how to fight against stress. You will also learn about Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Gestalt Therapy and relaxation techniques. You will read about her medical secrets and embark on a wonderful journey towards a healthier and happier life.
