Inna Segal suffered debilitating back pain for most of her young life, undergoing treatments of various kinds but without much success. When eventually a traditional doctor sent her home without conducting any treatment at all, Segal realized it was up to her. Enduring the pain for the rest of her life was not an option, doctors had failed to find a cure, and the only remaining possibility was for Segal to heal herself. But how?

“I suddenly had a sense that my body was endowed with an incredible ability to heal. Before self-healing, however, I had to discover the purpose of my pain.”
A lack of medical knowledge may have helped tremendously in Segal’s effort to end her pain, because it forced her to question what was happening to her and to seek a solution based on what she felt and understood. Her holistic approach – seeking out the purpose of her condition —was hugely and quickly successful. Since that day when the doctor gave up on her, Segal has been helping others get acquainted with the source of their illnesses and thereby with the antidote.

Inna Segal is the creator of Visionary Intuitive Healing and has written books and produced audio programs on wellness, pain relief, weight loss and prosperity, all built on the basic premise that everything in our lives is there for a purpose. In her latest book, The Secret Language of Your Body, Segal details her own path to wellness and explains the very simple and self-directed way in which any of us can determine the cause (purpose) of what ails us and what we can do to create a more effective way of life. Many will be tempted to skip the introductory section in favor of the comprehensive list of physical disorders and suggestions for healing. That’s fine, but I urge you to read Segal’s story as well as Bernie Siegel’s inspiring foreword at some point.

The Secret Language of Your Body is categorized by ailment, making it easy for readers to jump right to the most pressing issue and find a series of possible connections and situations that may be contributing factors in illness. Segal goes beyond that section to offer the possibility of a connection to emotions. Unlike allopathic practitioners, Segal recognizes that ‘it’s all in your mind’ may be a more important diagnosis than it sounds.

“I have found in my clients’ experiences and my own life that emotions do not disappear simply because we don’t allow ourselves to feel them or we suppress them. In fact, emotions often stay in the body until they are recognized, acknowledged, and released. If this process does not happen, dense and heavy emotions can contribute to disease and disfunction.”
Other sections addressing the clues to be found in body systems and even colors round out this refreshing take on empowered healing techniques. The Secret Language of Your Body is a simple and user-friendly approach to holistic healing, but certainly not a shallow one. The first step toward health and wellness is taking responsibility for our own bodies, and Inna Segal’s encouraging book makes that step a short one for anybody willing to make the commitment to self-care.
