Dr. Daniel Benor, MD is a wholistic psychiatrist who developed WHEE. WHEE stands for Whole Health Easily & Effectively. It incorporates two methods used in psychotherapy: Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Professional psychotherapists will most likely recognize these terms; the lay person can learn about them in this book.

WHEE is a method that provides fast relief of both psychological and physical pain. It helps you get to the root of the pain by identifying the emotional issues that helped to create it and to gain an understanding about why we are experiencing it. We tend to create emotional blocks as a way to bury feelings that we think we can’t handle. Physical pain often develops in our muscles and joints as a result of this. By identifying the blocks or resistances that are surrounding the pain, you can release it. Letting go helps you to be able to move on from the psychological issues that were binding you to the pain.

Dr. Benor observes, “Pain is often a message from our inner self, spoken through the symptoms of our body.” WHEE is described as wholistic because it takes into account all of the aspects that complete a person, including mind, body, spirit, emotions and relationships. For some people, some of the issues that are dealt with involve past life experiences and healing relationship issues with people who have passed on.

Who can benefit from WHEE? People who are experiencing either physical or emotional pain from health issues such as: fibromyalgia, PTSD, cravings, depression, irritable bowel syndrome and headaches. WHEE is simple and easy to learn. It takes less time than traditional therapy. As a matter of fact, WHEE was developed as a result of time limitations that have been imposed upon psychotherapists with their patients. Today, with so many insurance companies only willing to pay for brief therapy, WHEE is incredibly important. It is also something that people can use to help themselves outside of the therapist’s office.

As a person with fibromyalgia it is a relief knowing a doctor recognizes that it is a real health issue. It is also wonderful to know that a simple treatment exists that can help me heal from it, without having to resort to medications. I am sure that other readers will also feel this way in regards to whatever health issues they are facing.

I really enjoyed reading “Seven Minutes to Natural Pain Release.” Dr. Benor writes with such understanding and compassion. He also offers a glossary and in-depth explanations so that a layperson will have no problems understanding any of the subjects offered. I highly recommend this book to those who want to heal themselves from pain without medications and raise themselves to higher spiritual levels, and to the therapists who help them to heal.
