Sandy Johnson describes her magical journey around the world to meet and be treated by a variety of holistic healers in THE BRAZILIAN HEALER WITH THE KITCHEN KNIFE. Disillusioned to discover that traditional medical doctors offered only the vaguest assurances that her breast cancer would probably not recur, Johnson felt inspired to seek out healers who consider all aspects of an individual (not just the physical) when they heal. Beginning with tips Johnson received from the Native Americans she'd interviewed for her previous book, Johnson discovered a wonderfully diverse group of healers.

Moved by her own struggle to recover from breast cancer, Sandy Johnson explores with curiosity and a measure of healthy skepticism the work of healers, miracle-makers, and transformers of the mind, body, and soul. She travels the world-- from a beachside compound in Hawaii to a remote village in Brazil-- to meet face-to-face with the most acclaimed healers. She often experiences their work first-hand and reports, with fascinating detail, the story of their real-life miracles and incredible feats. She also writes about the wonder of the "placebo effect," which seems to give some people the faith they need to begin healing on their own.You'll meet Katie Engelhardt, a young woman from Tennessee, who is able to intuit and then often heal the ailments of people while in a trancelike state. Sometimes, after entering her trance, goldlike metal flakes appear on her face, neck, back, and hands. In another chapter, "Bundji," an Australian man with Aboriginal ancestors, tells how he was led to resurrect the healing methods of his people and now travels the world to heal those in need with "love, light, and energy." Dr. Ruth Ziemba, a traditionally trained nurse and chiropractor, explains why her treatments require only the lightest pressure with hands her patients say emanate an intense, healing heat.You'll also meet John of God, the Brazilian with the kitchen knife, who treats as many as 3,000 people at a time, excising tumors, ending blindness, and curing arthritis and cancer at his Casa de San Inacio in a remote Brazilian village.The Brazilian Healer with the Kitchen Knife grants an unprecedented view of this simultaneously ancient and modern phenomenon, and its most compelling practitioners. Sandy Johnson allows you to meet these spiritual magicians so that you can attempt to understand their gifts and motivations, and witness the best and worst of their work.

Absorbed quite a bit of wisdom from this book. Sandy Johnson covers mega amounts of modern anthropological cultivation to uncover some of the greatest healers on the planet. This is an excellent primer for those who want to extend their thought outside the bubble of conventional medical thinking. I'm considering giving it to my church pastor who is interested in perusing type of understanding.

I loved this book, so interesting on the different types of healers and stories about them. Anyone that is a healer, I would think would appreciate the findings in this book. It left me with wanting more investigations into more depth of the different regions and practices throughout the world. Blessings

It's very nice that author Sandy Johnson compiled stories of these brilliant healers. This is a rare book. You can still find some of them - in their homes, on the Internet, and perhaps you can benefit.

Did I say that I loved it? Yes, I did! Serendipity let me find this book in the "library" of the home I was renting, while in Abadiania, Brazil while visiting the renowned Brazilian healer John of God (also written about in this book). Made me want to fly off and visit each of the other healers!

Unfortunately, the book wasn't written in the days of the internet, I think, and none of them had web addresses and will be a little difficult to find. But, at least I was already visiting one of them and he (well, the entities that channel through him) healed some things in me that were so chronic, it was miraculous! (Ironically, his story wasn't covered as well as the others which I read first since his was near the end!).

He healed me so profoundly, and did so to others that I met, that I though he deserved an even better write-up!).

You won't be disappointed as you go along with Sandy on her very well-written journeys. I now want to read her other books! And despite GREAT temptation, I left the book in that house, and went and bought my own from Amazon :)

Sandy Johnson describes her magical journey around the world to meet and be treated by a variety of holistic healers in THE BRAZILIAN HEALER WITH THE KITCHEN KNIFE. Disillusioned to discover that traditional medical doctors offered only the vaguest assurances that her breast cancer would probably not recur, Johnson felt inspired to seek out healers who consider all aspects of an individual (not just the physical) when they heal. Beginning with tips Johnson received from the Native Americans she'd interviewed for her previous book, Johnson discovered a wonderfully diverse group of healers working with shamanic soul retrieval, alchemy, intuition, yoga, Kahuna, Australian Aboriginal, chiropractic, water, musical, and psychic surgery methods.
THE BRAZILIAN HEALER WITH THE KITCHEN KNIFE is so fascinating and well-written that I found it impossible to set down, as Johnson devoted a chapter to each of sixteen gifted healers. Here are healers who can see inside peoples' physical and energy bodies with ease -- at times performing miraculous healings. Photos are shown of most of the healers, including one woman healer who comes out of her healing trances to find gold-like metal flakes on her body, an Aboriginal man who works with "love, light, crystals, and energy," and men who remove cancerous lumps and cataracts from their patients -- often with nothing more than a kitchen knife.
Johnson's open-minded skepticism is refreshing; even as she feels certain she's gone "down the rabbit hole," she retains her journalistic common sense and composure to ask these healers how they heal. The healers Sandy Johnson visited include: Sandra Ingerman, Katie Engelhart, Howard Wills, Vianna Stibal, Virginia Ellen, Milton Trager, Gary Brownlee, Auntie Margaret, Warren Barigian, Gerry Bostock, Dr. Ruth Ziemba, Peter Maxwel, Rubens Faria, and John of God.
Whether you are considering enlisting aid from a holistic healer, or are just curious to read stories that prove truth is stranger than fiction -- THE BRAZILIAN HEALER WITH THE KITCHEN KNIFE will satisfy and delight. I give this book my highest recommendation.

Johnson has accumulated a number of fascinating stories regarding healers whose patients are actually healed. Their modalities are pretty far out, but who is to say that God must be stereotyped? I enjoyed all of the stories and having once been a program director for a holistic health center, I can attest that there is plausibility in all of these stories. Over the years and from my experiences and research, a healer is only a conduit. The patient actually heals him/her self. It is written: "It is done unto you as you believe." If the modality of healing is accepted by the patient, then the patient is healed. If the sickness re-occurs, then doubt and fear was allowed to come in. It is not the healer who failed, it is the lack of acceptance. The traditional medical modalities are rife with physicians who tell a patient they have only so many months, years to live and this is in effect, condemning the patient to death if the patient accepts the verdict. Medical schools have no idea about true healings. Pharmaceuticals are not the answer. Bettye Johnson, award-winning author, Secrets of the Magdalene Scrolls.

I just about gulped down Sandy Johnson's latest book, "The Brasilian Healer with the Kitchen Knife". I couldn't put it down once I'd opened the covers. Clearly the author made an amazing internal and external journey in order to write the book. She gives the reader a "behind the scenes" look into the world of healing and healers. Any skeptic who reads the book may well question his/her belief system, yet the writer was even handed in covering the subject.
A great book, I had it on a shelf for months. Once I started to read it I couldn't put it down. Easy read and very insperational.
