Repair that Works
Jost Sauer writes from a depth
of personal experience that adds so much credibility
to this book.
When he was fourteen he began
his love affair with mood and mind-altering
substances. As the years went by the magical
highs became suicidal depressions. A decision
to study Traditional Chinese Medicine was a
turning point although it took a number of years
with many highs and lows before his body, mind
and spirit were full of well-being.
He takes you through the journey
of healing using both his own experiences and
case studies from his extensive client base.
As you read you realise his treatment program
is radically different to the majority of rehabilitation
systems in place across Australia. He argues
that drug users need a new therapeutic approach
that changes the way they view themselves and
their drug use.
Sauer describes graphically what
happens when a drug user is in the middle of
a binge. He explains the emotional landscape,
the role the drug plays, the mind-body split
occurring and the damage occurring to the organs
in the body.
The depletion of the organ energy
is part of what stops many addicts from quitting
for good. Because the organs are so depleted
they are unable to provide the emotional support
role they are biologically designed for. For
example - the heart for self-love, the kidneys
Using the principles of Traditional
Chinese Medicine, with each client Sauer first
tackles getting the organs pumped up and functioning
emotionally. Only then does the task of quitting
the drug start.
This is a book for anyone
who has contact with drug users and potential
drug users. Not only does it outline a treatment
program it explains with clarity and honesty
what is happening within the mind / body/soul
of the individual taking drugs. If teenagers
were able to read this book before they started
trying drugs maybe many would drop the idea.
