Through advanced research, the medical community now has a wide array of techniques, state-of-the-art tools, and knowledge that greatly enhance their ability to diagnose and treat illness. Despite these advances, the root cause of illness continues to mystify and challenge individuals in one form or another.

While stricken with a life-threatening illness, Dr. Frederick Bailes observed unhealthy emotional traits in himself and others that were deeply seeded not in the physical symptoms, but in the harmful emotions created by the human mind. “Whatever the basic fear-pattern, the fact remains that the real illness is not so much the outward physical manifestation as the underlying mental state,” says Bailes. “It follows that any remedial action directed only at the physical form will leave the fundamental cause untouched . . . the health-seeker must now learn how to erase the destructive thought-pattern before they can hope to eradicate the physical illness.”

About Author

Frederick Bailes

Dr. Frederick Bailes was born into a family of pioneers in New Zealand and was educated to be a medical missionary. Just as he was completing his training he was found to have diabetes, a so-called “incurable” condition, which prevented him from entering his work. Shortly afterward, he came across the writing of Judge Thomas Troward and began to develop a philosophy for living which led to his complete recovery long before the discovery of insulin. Later, as a student at a large London hospital, Dr. Bailes closely observed the mental factors which entered into the recovery of patients and noticed that certain fundamental thought-patters invariable produced bodily reactions. By stimulating his patients causative mental patterns toward healing, Dr. Bailes soon found remarkable results.
