Word Cures Book

Stressed? Health concerns? Get a grip. Here's how...


You take great care of everybody else.
So who's looking out for you?

You don't have to be a parent, caregiver, health service provider, middle-manager, solo-preneur, or anything very crazy to feel overwhelmed in today's 24/7 society. It happens to nearly everyone! Chances are you're juggling as fast as you can. Taking great care of everyone around you...

Drops of water

You get up with the crickets, gulp some high-octane java, drop off the kids, and zoom out to meet the demands of another stress-filled day. You leap when the boss says "jump," grab a vending machine snack, and sprint to the end of the workday.

  • Sick kid? You beeline to the doctor's office.
  • Mom needs help? Just call you.
  • Away game for the basketball team? Of course you'll go.
  • Overtime at work? Could we keep you away if we tried?

Ok, the workday's over. Quick! Cruise the drive-thru on your way to soccer practice, text the teenager, homework check for the little one before you finally get to...

Ha! Gotcha, didn't I! I'll bet you thought you were going to get an hour curled up with Fluffy and your favorite reality show. Not tonight! The bathroom's half-painted, there's laundry in the hamper, and your youngest needs a Halloween costume. Oh yeah. Isn't that the exercise bike ever-so-faintly calling your name?

Got a headache, you say? Exhausted? Aching muscles? Overweight and overdrawn? Is it really any surprise?

Funny thing. Even if your kids are grown — and your youngest is really a Schnauzer — most anyone can relate to this lifestyle. If you're a giver, you give. Your schedule's packed full as a jar of dill pickles and you're determined to squeeze every darned minute out of the day. Batten down the hatches. You've gotta do it all!

Help us help you.

One little question, please.

Who's taking care of you?

Gotcha again, didn't I? If you're like a lot of people I've met over the years, the answer is no one. (But it doesn't have to stay that way!)

Credibility check!

Just where did I meet all these stressed-out givers-of-too-much? Easy. I'm a bodyworker. Most of my clients are pain patients. You need some credibility, I know. So I mention these things simply to let you know that while I've got a good deal of training and experience in holstic health care, I'm also a regular person like you.

Since 1989, I've been learning and observing how stress manifests in the body. In that time, I've earned advanced degrees in developmental psychology (how people come to be the way they are) and energy medicine (how the energy of our thoughts and beliefs affects health) and a specialty certificate in neuromuscular therapy. Experience teaches best, so I also earned a black belt in karate, learned transformational breathwork, and studied with a master in the art of observing nature. Right now, I'm having fun with north-climate organic vegetable gardening.

Word Cures (the book)

I work every day with regular folks — people from nearly every walk of life — who lead chaotic lives that they're desperately trying to get a grip on. Many know that if they don't get it together soon, they'll be paying the price with their health. Some already are. You may be, too.

Here's the undeniable truth that you and I both know. Someone needs to take better care of you. And the best person for the job is ... gulp ... you! But you don't have to go it alone. As of today, you've got someone new in your corner. Me.

Let's start now. If I had just one bit of wisdom to offer today, it would be this: That "little voice in the back of your head" that puts limits on what you can and can't do isn't always honest with you. It operates from fear. It tries to scare you into working harder than you should for everyone else ... and leaving your own self-care for last.

Truth is, if you listen to talk like that, your life isn't going to go well. Ultimately, you'll set the stage for all manner of chronic and degenerative disease conditions, including chronic pain, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer, premature disability, and early death. Your relationships will suffer, and so will your finances. Let's not go there.

How about this instead? Let's connect with your "little voice." Recruit it as an ally. It's easy, once you learn to recognize the fallacies your Inner Saboteur uses in a sincere — but often misguided — attempt to keep you safe and secure.

You'll do it with this easy read (packed with case history examples) — Word Cures: How to Keep Stupid Excuses From Sabotaging Your Health.

Today, it might be hard to believe how much better you can feel in just a short time. Fortunately, you don't have to. All you need at this moment is the willingness to open your mind to a new possibility:

The possibility of feeling great!

"I've always been a fan of words. People talk themselves out of the lives they say they want every day. Word Cures offers a fresh and direct approach for people who are ready to transform their beliefs about health."

Robert G. Allen, bestselling author of The One-Minute Millionaire

"Elizabeth's book brought me up short when I realized the excuses that hold me back from success. Then it showed clear steps I can take to get that success."

— Sharon Spaedy, CHTP

"My mom sent me your book which I am completely enjoying. It's easy to read and, of course, we can all relate to it ourselves or notice patterns that are identifiable in others. The book is a valuable tool as I study health behavior change. I enjoy being able to apply the practical examples you give..."

Lyndsi Johnson, Arizona State University Exercise and Wellness Master's Student
