The following are some books about energy healing and TBI/concussion, written by Susana Stoica, a healer with over 35 years of experience in the field.

“The emphasis on step-by-step processes that breaks up typical cooking directions for easy absorption and understanding by those who may not be able to concentrate or quickly process steps makes this series a top recommendation. These books [the “Cooking after Brain Injury…” series] should be in the tool boxes of anyone recovering from brain trauma and the therapists helping them regain their independence through brain-exercise therapies.”   Click here to read the full review.  Midwest Book Review

The Bestseller “Cooking after Brain Injury: Easy Cooking for Recovery” was published in 2018/2019, is dedicated to people who are trying to recover from traumatic brain injury (TBI).  After a brain injury or stroke people are no longer able to cook, even if they were proficient cooks before the trauma. That is what happened to the author of this book. She had two TBIs on the same day and ended up not being able to make sense of cooking. With determination and patience, over a span of ten years, Susana was able to find a way to cook again and documented her new approach to cooking so she could share it with others in need. The new way of cooking deals with the typical issues related to brain trauma: problems with concentration, sequencing, and figuring out what dishes go together. The books in the series are increasingly more complex, offering a therapeutic path to being able to cook again in a healthy way.  The recipes are reduced-calorie versions of recipes from around the world.  Happy cooking!  Please send questions and feedback to: The books are available from Buy ButtonThe books were chosen as Pick of the Month for February 2019 by Donovan’s Bookshelf .
