‘Moving beyond the physical toward a holistic practice of self healing’

Cape Woolamai, Phillip Island

As a General Medical Practitioner with over thirty years experience, I’ve worked in a variety of practices – rural and suburban; traditional and alternative. In working comprehensively with many patients over the years, I’ve learnt a lot about how people can transform their health and that healing is a natural process. My primary interest has developed into a holistic approach to health and my aim is to enable patients to pay attention to their bodies so they may enhance the body’s natural healing processes. My passion for writing has developed over this time and I now work as a locum GP in Aboriginal health to enable me to spend more time writing. In 2015, I published my first book called ‘Holistic Medicine: Beyond the Physical’.

I wrote this book after one of my best friends died quite suddenly. Her death shocked me and transformed my life from one where my head and ego ruled my behaviour to a more soulful and holistic existence. I realised that the way I had been living had come about through being heavily influenced by a culture which worshipped logic and ego. I began to notice that if I paid more attention to my feelings, my thinking, my passions and my intuition, that life became easier and more joyful. So Holistic Medicine is about living from a more soul-centred place and following the flow of our lives in order to be the whole person we are meant to be.

I am currently working on two books. The first is going to be published as a free eBook early in 2020 and is called: ‘Tools for Transformation’. It will give you tools that you can use to help transform your life into a life dictated by your soul and heart rather than your ego and mind. Tools such as letting go, opening the heart, being present and tapping into source energy will enhance your ability to live a soulful life.

The second book is currently called Holistic Healing and is written specifically for people trying to heal themselves from a disease or illness. It outlines the most useful ways to enhance our body’s own natural healing abilities and will give people proven strategies that boost this natural process. I hope to publish this book in 2020. I am committed to and passionate about helping people learn how to heal themselves and I believe my writing is a way to bring this information to people.

Beyond the Physical

‘A life changing read’

‘This book is about a different way of viewing the world. It is not about following a number of steps to reach a goal. It is about viewing life as an unfolding process and about learning how we might better become part of that process, so instead of resisting the process of life we learn how to live with it.

Carol Head, 2015
