Mental Imagery


Dr. Gil Alvarado, N.D., L.Ac., Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM) is a naturopathic physician and acupuncturist with over 35 years experience helping people improve their health.

Years ago, when Dr. Gil first began to work with mental imagery to help people to heal, conventional medicine still considered such approaches as useless. Being one of the early trail-blazers of this work, Dr. Gil realized that if the work was done improperly, just like anything else, then it wouldn’t work. When done properly and skillfully, however, it could result in dynamic and sometimes dramatic healing. Learning and using the skills to help people do mental imagery properly is the key, and of course this can make all the difference for someone.

In recent years a large amount of research has been done validating mental imagery processes. This research has demonstrated conclusively that when done properly mental imagery can have a profound effect on a person’s health. In fact it was found to be so effective and required so much attention that a new field was created for its study and development. It was called psychoneuroimmunology. A great deal has been learned and remains to be learned in this field.

At The New Life Center, if mental imagery is likely to be significantly beneficial for you, Dr. Gil will guide you and help you to develop your own personal mental imagery process. This process that will not only help you to feel better, but align and direct your mind, nervous system and body to bring about greater health and healing in your life.
