Hailed by Dr. Andrew Weil as a book “that must be brought to all who seek true health,” Coyote Medicine is an engaging and essential testament to the power of alternative healing and recovery methods that lie beyond the confines of Western medicine.
Inspired by his Cherokee grandmother's healing ceremonies, Lewis Mehl-Madrona enlightens readers to "alternative" paths to recovery and health. Coyote Medicine isn't about eschewing Western medicine when it's effective, but about finding other answers when medicine fails: for chronic sufferers, patients not responding to medication, or "terminal" cases that doctors have given up on. In the story of one doctor's remarkable initiation into alternative ways to spiritual and physical health, Coyote Medicine provides the key to untapped healing methods available today.

Coyote is a trickster. Coyote medicine is when something that is wrong, backward, or hurtful is actually a healing lesson. I thought this book was going to be about that. It's not. It's about the author's circle back to his indigenous roots and embracing the energy within himself. He calls it "coyote" because it's a blend of modern/ western with traditional. It's an interesting story. I think that people who have no insight into indigenous cultures or spirit medicine will find it enlightening.
Perhaps it's not fair of me, but I gave it 4 stars because it wasn't what I thought it was and the information is not new to me so it wasn't as entertaining or informative as it would be to a different audience. If you are in need of a bridge, this is probably a good place to start.
When I finished reading Coyote Medicine, I felt like I had to say goodbye to an old friend. Lewis opened up his heart and soul giving the reader insight into Native American healing techniques. I wish he lived in California, because I'd love to learn from him. I had been looking for a Native American Shaman to mentor me in my healing business then this book appeared from Spirit to guide me on my journey. I will read his book again to make sure that I incorporate everything that he shares. I highly recommend this book for anyone to read...not just healers. There is a message for all from Spirit!
I'm currently reading the 3rd Coyote book (Coyote Healing). Some of the best Native American healing and natural medicine information I've ever come across. Do yourself a favor and secure your copies of Coyote Wisdom, Coyote Medicine, and Coyote Healing. This series is bound to become classics in natural healing.
