Books By Dr. Chris

The Listening Cure

This book is about new and effective ways to address disease that aren’t commonly used by our physicians. Dr. Chris Gilbert demonstrates that our bodies speak to us all the time. 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. Dr. 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.

Each chapter reveals a different way of identifying underlying issues. These original, simple, and fun techniques include role-playing, inner group therapy, dream interpretation, art interpretation, nature walks, and even conversations with death. The Listening Cure covers a range of common afflictions, from obesity to back pain, and devotes a full chapter to resolving sexual problems in relationships.

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.

Real healing involves more than pills and surgery. Dr. Chris Gilbert with her compassion and masterful insights uncovers the root cause of seemingly inexplicable and mystifying symptoms of many illnesses. This book is a must-read.

Useful advice from an unconventional physician and a knowledgeable neuroscientist, a brilliant pair who provide insight into emotions and effects of stress that trigger physical illness. The uniqueness of this book is that Dr. Gilbert provides the medical diagnosis, and Dr. Haseltine provides explanation based on fundamental neuroscience. A splendid combination!
