Louise Hay was more than just a writer. The so-called founder of the self-help movement helped to create a conversation around the mind-body connection, bringing spirituality into the mainstream. The New York Times best-selling author ended up creating Hay House, a publishing company that continues her legacy of self-help, spirituality, and healing.
Louise’s first book, Heal Your Body, which she published at age 50, detailed the mental patterns that cause physical illness, as well as how using visualization, affirmations, and positive thoughts can help reverse illness. After she was diagnosed with cancer, Louise used herself as a guinea pig, replacing traditional drugs and therapies with affirmations, visualization, nutritional cleansing, and psychotherapy. Within six months, she was healed.
