Poorly executed

While I appreciate the sentiment of this documentary I feel it lacked in so many areas. As someone living with chronic illness and who has tried many alternative therapies there's so much the documentary missed out. They documentary briefly touches on energy medicine theory and mention there is an impact from nutrition they failed to dig deeper. We should have been given an insight and overview into a few of the many therapies available such as Bodytalk, Reiki, Homeopathy, acupuncture etc. We could have spoken with more practitioners and been given more successful case studies and seen what's involved with these treatments. Also there were maybe 3 people who we speak to who struggle with illness one of which over came her cancer with chemotherapy and wheatgrass we are told. We see a man receive treatment from a "divine healer" we are told he has cancer but we never find out if his healing session worked or what happens to him after treatment even though he says he feel different. We follow a lady with a mystery skin condition who receives some treatment and nutrition information but her condition never clears up This does not give people a lot of faith in the treatment of these conditions through energy medicine as we actually do not see a sic evil treatment on this documentary which is sad as there are so many case studies out there which could have inspired hope in these modalities. There's is a brief mention of nutrition but the documentary failed to go further into it or mention how unhealthy meat,dairy,eggs and fish are to the body (Watch What The Health) and only kind of mentions a whole foods plant based diet but doesn't talk about the supportive evidence of this or the science about what this does to your body. Overall I was pretty disappointed as this could have been done so much better in a way that would inspire people to change their way of thinking about medicine and energy.

Profit Motive?

I shall start by saying that for decades I've supported some aspects of alternative medicine - naturopathic, herbal, etc. Also, I am one of the original members of what is one of the first and is now one of the largest natural, organic, locally grown food cooperatives. So, several problems with this doc's presentation. The doc's premises are largely that Eastern (i.e. Asian from some un-described point in history) coexists with something called energy (which of course is given many forms & sources) all in opposition to Western or science based medicine & thought. Additionally that emotions, stress create densities in our bodies that are bad such as cancer, fibromyalgia, Crohn's, migraines, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, etc. Thoughts & emotions produce illness, disease & consequently death. So by mediation, diet, emotion/thought you can control (i.e. cure) the above. You do so by tapping into an invisible power/intelligence that made us and thus can heal us. To support all this the evidence (and basically only evidence) is a few interviews of people who survived. What we don't get are the statistics of how many of the hundreds of thousands or millions w/similar issues that didn't live. Probability says that some will survive outside Western science for any of a number of reasons including unique genetics or reversals that just happen. The fact is that science based medicine has doubled the life spans of peoples in comparison to those living in idyllic hundreds or thousands of years ago peoples. Yes, thoughts & emotions do affect health, but what is presented here is exaggerated & grossly irresponsible. I also question the objectivity of the over whelming majority of speakers in this presentation because they were authors who happen to make money off of selling an idea.

So many "Answers" to "Life's" "Questions"

Heal seeks to answer a question that most of us ask ourselves daily: now that I've married this billionaire, what shall I do with my time? "Director" Kelly Noonan answers this question boldly as she speaks with "authors," many of which she appears to chase while on their lunch break in New York City. One man talks to ghosts and seems disappointed when Noonan doesn't have a terminal illness. The rest of us are disappointed for other reasons. All jokes aside, this is a gold digger's fantasy ride. Please don't be tricked into believing it.
