We have helped Bill Hool create a website dedicated to the promotion of good health through understanding the emotional component of illness. His belief is that only when negative emotions can be eliminated from an individuals mind-body can true health be realized. He says that although diet, exercise, and nutrition are important they are, as science is proving, all secondary to a positive mental attitude or BEING HAPPY. In other words, the human body will always perform less effectively if one is emotionally drained by fear, shame, anger, or loneliness and no amount of physical activity or conditioning will truly compensate.
Bill is constantly searching the internet for the latest scientific studies that point up the importance of understanding how emotions impact our health and, when he finds them, he posts them under categories so that the reader can explore whichever negative emotion is pertinent to them. And, when he finds posts that give clues as to how to deal with those negative emotions, he posts those as well. He also lists the steps he has found helpful to him in eliminating negative emotions and he lists them under FOUR STEPS on the website.
THE BOOK: THE CASE FOR A WARRIOR MIND
Bill has written a book for his young son about all the things he wants his son to know that will probably not be gained from other sources – the things that schools and books may never provide – most especially about sex, drugs, addiction, old age, and being healthy. He also presents his perspective on Alzheimer’s disease and why he believes it to be an emotionally caused disease that can, like all illnesses, be prevented by mindful awareness. The book can be downloaded free of charge from the website or ordered through Amazon.
