HEALING Beyond Pills & Potions: Core Principles for Helpers & Healers

HEALING Beyond Pills PotionsSteve Bierman M.D. received his undergraduate degree from UCLA and his doctorate from Northwestern University, School of Medicine. After completing his Family Practice residency at UCSD, he worked nearly 20 years as a board-certified Emergency Physician at Scripps Memorial Hospital, in Encinitas, California. He is the founder of two medical device companies and holds over 200 utility patents on various medical devices. Dr. Bierman has two daughters–Clea and Raquel– is an avid surfer and lives in Del Mar, California with his wife Dianne and their three pugs.

As an Emergency Physician, Dr. Bierman became renowned for performing painless procedures, like simple injections, laceration repairs, and even childbirth. But his studied words and gestures did far more than prevent pain, they also produced astonishing physical outcomes: dangerous heart rhythms converted to normal, hemorrhages arrested and constricted airways dilated.

In private practice, Dr. Bierman went further along “the communication continuum” to forestall auto-immune diseases, shrink deadly tumors, relieve depression and ensure bloodless surgeries. Many of his cures seem like miracles. And yet, as Dr. Bierman explains, they are the inevitable consequence of a new and expanded understanding of disease causality and the focused power of ideas to access our Healer Within.


Steve Bierman MD, whose work blends humanism, hypnosis and alternative modalities with traditional allopathic medicine, has been featured on NBC’s Dateline and recently won the 2020 Best Indie Book award for his ground-breaking book, HEALING – Beyond Pills & Potions (Gyro Press, International).

Dr. Bierman—a graduate of the Northwestern University School of Medicine–began his career as a double board-certified Emergency and Family Physician.  Quickly, he discovered that what he had spent his first 29 years learning and studying was simply not enough. As much as he marveled at the treatments of modern medicine, so too did he despair at the rarity of its cures.

His search for a better understanding of health and healing took him to shamanic encampments in the Ecuadorian jungle, a 30-year collaboration with a renowned Taoist grandmaster, credentialing in neurolinguistics programming (NLP) with John Grinder and board certification in medical hypnosis.

No longer does Dr. Bierman subscribe to the “blunt beginnings” of modern medicine’s diagnoses; nor does he accept the “endless endings” of traditional allopathic treatments. Instead, Dr. Bierman now understands the tremendous impact of ideas on health and healing—ideas held by patients, and ideas delivered by caregivers. His approach has resulted in lasting cures of so-called chronic diseases, regression and disappearance of advanced tumors, bloodless and painless surgeries, and resolution of a wide array of “gray zone” syndromes that defy diagnosis.

Dr. Bierman continues to see patients in his private practice in Del Mar, California. He also teaches introductory and advanced courses in his techniques around the world. He is the father of two daughters, Clea and Raquel, and lives, works and surfs in Del Mar with his wife Dianne and their three pugs.
