From day outings to extended stays, our national organization remains steadfastly focused on the essence of healing.

We owe our growth and resilience to the unwavering support of donors and partners like Peter Eardley and the Team at the Oak Heart Lodge, who provide a second home for Americas heroes amidst the majestic beauty of the land they pledged to defend. Its with great pleasure that we designate Oak Heart Lodge as a premier PHWFF National Destination.

Strategically positioned amidst the convergence of numerous blue-ribbon rivers and streams in Michigan, Oak Heart Lodge offers a year-round haven for fishing enthusiasts, boasting Steelhead, Trout, Smallmouth Bass, and King Salmon. Since its inception, the dedicated staff at Oak Heart has been committed to providing Americas wounded Veterans with unparalleled angling experiences.

Peter Eardley, Chief Executive Officer of Oak Heart Lodge, remarked: 2024 heralds an exciting chapter for our Team as we expand our horizons with the esteemed Project Healing Waters organization. This year marks a significant milestone as our nationally recognized Lodge welcomes a greater number of Veterans from across the nation, embodying our status as a PHW National Destination. We eagerly anticipate a fruitful and enduring partnership with the Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Team.

The author shares her experience and expertise with an uncommon disease to educate readers.

San Diego, California, USA – WEBWIRE

This book gives people many ways to become Healthy again. Sheryl Childs.

Diane Olives book Natural Ways for Healing Mites and Morgellons: Information on Itchy & Irritated Skin was last exhibited by self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the 2023 London Book Fair. The book trade fair occurred last April 18-20, 2023, at Olympia London, London, UK.

This book on physical ailments focuses on healing Morgellons. Morgellons disease is an emerging dermatological disorder and multisystem illness. The disease is characterized by unexplained skin disease associated with the formation of unusual fibers or parasites living under the skin and emerging from abruptly appearing, slow-healing skin lesions.

Through Dianes research and studies, she learned that the human body is self-healing if given the right nutrients. She shares that she contracted the disease from a woman who had been camping in Los Angeles, California. This woman came into her home and embraced Diane, and little did Diane knew that this woman was infested with mites. With her twenty-six years of experience and knowledge in herbs, health, diet, and spirituality, Diane was able to understand and find a cure for the illness, which she explains in the book step by step. The author states that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration do not acknowledge the Morgellons disease.

Diane shares her and other survivors healing journey in her book. She shares the recovery stories of eight people and stories of a few famous people. This book aims to encourage people and make those who suffer from Morgellons feel that they are not alone in battling this unfamiliar illness.

Diane Olive has a certification in health from Rosemont College, Pennsylvania, and a BA in fine arts from California State University, Northridge.

After contracting Morgellons disease years later, Diane once again had to learn to heal herself through diet, herbs, and spirituality since medical doctors were unable to treat the illness properly. She currently resides in Encinitas, California, with her husband, John.

Poems for Healing


We all grieve in our own unique ways. Some people indulge in food, wine, travel, and new experiences, while others spend all of their time working. Each of us will respond in a different way to the sorrow of grieving, which makes it a genuinely unique personal experience.

However, many people find that writing helps them deal with their sorrow. The act of writing can bring about a lot of happiness and calm. It is a method of expression that compels the writer to bare all on the page, enabling the suffering they feel to manifest itself in lovely words. “Poems on the Path” by Dr. Ruey Ryburn is a lovely anthology that takes us on a moving journey into how one comprehends loss and suffering.

The book is a collection of poems and lectures that demonstrate how it assisted the author in coping with her grief after the death of her daughter. We are truly brought closer to her feelings for her child by her poetry, which takes us to a spiritual place. She also dealt with subjects like her trust in God and her sad marriage. She knew complete submission to God as a believer. She realized that in order to deal with her daughter’s illness and eventual passing, she must rely only on God.

“Poems on the Path” reveals the innermost thoughts of a woman who was motivated not only by suffering and loss but above all, by faith in God. She discovered the Sacred Path Healing School with the aid of her faith; its lectures are also included in the book. A book that portrays the beauty of life and love in words while also capturing life is introduced to us along with stunning photos.

The Miracle of Healing is Within the Palm of Your Hands

In alternative medicine, bodywork refers to any psychological or personal development practice that involves interfacing with the human body in any form, such as manipulative therapy, breathwork, or energy healing. Bodywork methods also aid in the measurement and strengthening of posture, as well as the promotion of awareness of the body-mind connection, which considers the human body and mind as a single integrated unit.

Dr. Ronan Kisch, a clinical psychologist, and bodywork educator has documented twenty-seven bodywork/massage therapists whose clients had unusual, if not miraculous, recoveries after receiving bodywork from these practitioners, despite grave medical prognoses or life trauma. In his book, “The Miraculous Achievements of Bodywork: How Touch Can Provide Healing for The Mind, Body, And Spirit,” he invites us to observe the healing advantages of touch.

Touch’s psychological and spiritual potential is boldly explored in this book. The stories reveal and demonstrate the advantages of conscious and present bodywork. Further research into the how and why of bodywork’s accomplishments, on the other hand, revealed physiological, spiritual, and psychological undercurrents that could be present during a session. Dr. Kisch explores the consciousness and intelligence of bodyworkers, as well as the transformation of their clients. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the mysteries surrounding the relationship between the body, mind, and spirit. Dr. Kisch’s clear writing style makes the book accessible to both newcomers and those interested in learning more about bodywork. The book is an excellent resource for individuals who want to learn more about the benefits, science, and inner workings of bodyworks.

The book is also well received and has received positive feedback with one commenter saying:

“I just finished reading ‘The Miraculous Achievements of Bodywork;’ I could not put it down. I believe it is a must-read not only for people who do bodywork but for those who are having bodywork done. As a Massage Therapist and Reiki practitioner, it reminded me of the many miracles, I have witnessed over my 12 years in the field. It inspired me to continue to look for and acknowledge what I am a party and witness to so often. I am grateful to Ronan Kisch for sharing the stories of how love, energy, and touch create miracles.”
