the Huddleston method (2)

In Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster, Peggy Huddleston opens with a quote from Karl Menninger: “Love cures people, both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it.”

“A review of the medical literature documents that people who prepare for an operation have less pain, fewer complications and recover sooner,” Huddleston says. And then she outlines the five steps to her unique and effective method combining relaxation and visualization.

The Huddleston method can be used to prepare for surgery, tolerate and enhance chemotherapy or other medication, or cope with other situations that affect our physical and emotional health. The steps are:

 relax to feel peaceful,

visualize your healing,

organize a support group,

use healing statements,

meet your anesthesiologist.

The steps work whether you have weeks to prepare or a day. I will share the experiences of people who have had both lots of and little time with the Huddleston method and have benefited greatly in coming posts. You can visit to learn more and to get started.

On the way to feeling peaceful,
