A friend knew I was working on a book about Energy Medicine and gave me a copy of The Healing Code: 6 Minutes to Heal the Source of Your Health, Success, or Relationship Issue. I have to admit, I was skeptical with all the hype surrounding the book. The health program known as The Healing Codes is so monumentally popular worldwide that when the book came out it sold out on Amazon is just a few hours!
I was intrigued by the stories of the two authors Alexander Loyd and Ben Johnson. Loyd described the years of frustration trying to find a treatment that would work for his wife’s depression. Having suffered from depression myself I understand how difficult a search that can be. Flying back to see his wife following a phone call where she was suffering greatly and he feared for her life, the Healing Code came to him as a gift from another world. Loyd says, “The best way I can put it is: God downloaded into my mind and heart what we now call The Healing Codes.”
When Loyd shared the information he had learned with his wife and she began working the program, her depression gradually diminished and finally left altogether. It hasn’t returned and both are extremely grateful for their good fortune. Loyd then spent a number of years trying to validate the results he and others were having. He began to delve into the science of Energy Medicine.
Ben Johnson had an even more dramatic story. After suffering with a number of confusing symptoms, he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. As a practicing physician he knew the chances of his survival were slim and there was no known cure. Johnson attended a seminar which Loyd taught and was intrigued with his findings. He finally took the plunge, learned, and practiced the Codes. The symptoms diminished and finally left altogether. “When I returned to the surgeon who first diagnosed me,” he says, “He ran the test for Lou Gehrig’s (EMG) and found it to be 100 percent gone. I have been symptom-free since March 2004.”
I spoke with Dr. Loyd and was impressed with his sincerity and desire to help others heal.
Here is a summary of my own understandings of the secrets described in the book:
Secret #1: There is One Source of Illness and Disease
Our bodies immune system and other systems in the body are finely tuned to keep us healthy and to disease free. When the system is working properly the many cellular disruptions that could turn into things like cancer are healed before problems occur. When things are out of balance, disease occurs.
What causes us to get out of balance? Stress! Loyd and Johnson offer a nice analogy to help us understand what’s happening on a cellular level:
In the Navy, when a ship is attacked, all maintenance, repair, and normal activities cease. Even crew that are sleeping or eating have to “man the battle stations.” When the alarm goes off, our cells cease their normal growth, healing and maintenance. Why? The fire alarm is only supposed to go off in an emergency, and all of those activities can wait a few minutes while we run or fight to save our lives.
The cells literally close up, like a ship battening down the hatches in a time of attack. Nothing is going in or out. You don’t see a tender ship coming up beside a battleship to give it food or to unload the garbage during a battle. In the same way our cells don’t receive nutrition, oxygen, minerals, etc. nor do they get rid of waste products and toxins while under stress.
Under normal conditions the stress comes and goes quickly and shutting things down for a short period of time does not cause damage. But increasingly we are under chronic stress and our bodies, minds, and spirits can not repair themselves. Physical, mental, and spiritual illnesses result.
