Dr. Cropley has trained hundreds of doctors in his methods of nutrition and Self-Healing. He is the author of numerous articles, several books and courses. Dr. Cropley frequently lecturs at the colleges of Naturopathic Medicine, and is widely regarded as one of today’s leading thinkers and teachers in the philosophy and practice of Self-Healing. His methods of Self-Healing are complement and strengthen all forms of medicine and therapy.
Dr. Cropley no longer prescribes any medicines. He teaches his “students” to heal all manner of health problems by strengthening their skill and self-control in four areas: Wholesome nutrition, strengthening exercise, positive thinking and developing honest, caring relationships. His students learn how to master their illnesses by mastering themselves. He practices what he teaches.
Dr. Cropley teaches how to heal illness by healing ourselves, our own sick thoughts, words and deeds. He emphasizes that “Self-healing IS self-mastery,” and the culprit in our ill health is ourselves, not so called “diseases”. We must master the ways we eat, move, think and relate with others.
The real work of Self-healing is gaining freedom from drugs, sugar, coffee, overeating, sedentary living, laziness, anxiety, depression, moodiness, irritability and on and on. Mastering oneself is the most challenging and… incomparably satisfying of all human endeavors. We heal the roots of sickness in ourselves not through force and self-coercion, but through wisdom and compassion; by learning to love ourselves wisely through our most ordinary, everyday activities.
