About Louise Hay:
Called “the closest thing to a living saint” by the media, Louise Hay was also known as one of the founders of the self-help movement. Her first book, Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body.
In 1984, her new book, You Can Heal Your Life, was published. In it, Louise explains how our beliefs and ideas about ourselves are often the cause of our emotional problems and physical maladies and how, by using certain tools, we can change our thinking and our lives for the better. Louise was able to put her philosophies into practice when she was diagnosed with cancer. She considered the alternatives to surgery and drugs, and instead developed an intensive program of affirmations, visualization, nutritional cleansing, and psychotherapy. Within six months, she was completely healed of cancer.
‘You Can Heal Your Life’ reached the New York Times bestseller list and remained on it for 13 consecutive weeks. More than 50 million copies of You Can Heal Your Life have been sold throughout the world. Twenty years later, due to her appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the book was again on the New York Times bestseller list. The first time in publication’s history has that happened!
Louise also started Hay House, Inc., a successful publishing company. What began as a small venture in the living room of her home has turned into a prosperous corporation that has sold millions of books and products worldwide. Hay House authors include many notables in the self-help movement, including Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Suze Orman, Doreen Virtue, Esther Hicks, Jorge Cruise, Marianne Williamson, Caroline Myss, Cheryl Richardson, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Tavis Smiley etc.
