the INside effects: How the Body Heals Itself

In a world filled with fear and confusion about diagnoses and medications, a different conversation is emerging, the idea that the body has the innate ability to heal itself.

Why are we not taught this?

Why are nature’s remedies routinely ignored or ridiculed by the medical establishment?

Could there be a motive to keep us sick?

the INside Effects: How the Body Heals Itself brings together a dynamic group of leading-edge doctors, scientists, researchers, and health advocates offering practical and powerful tools for tapping into your body’s ability to heal.

The film’s creator, Keith Leon S., asks these visionary experts questions that go beyond the surface of conventional models by exploring the most essential elements of health and wellness, including deeply hidden knowledge that is now coming to light.

While the subjects are profound, you’ll find the energy of the film to be light, positive, and even—at times—comical.

Director Statement

I produced and directed this film for two reasons… first, when I was 7 my aunt was diagnosed with cancer and told she had two weeks to live. He said she had better get her affairs in order. She told her doctor that God had a different plan and there was more for her to do. She told him she would come back in the two weeks he had diagnosed her with to retest and said, “We’ll see where we are then.” She came back two weeks later, and her cancer was completely gone. No evidence of it ever having been there in the first place. Docs we lined up the hallway looking at the before and after scans in amazement.

Now, let’s jump forward to a few years ago for the second reason I made this film. I had been experiencing chronic level 9/10 pain in my neck and between my shoulders for 26 years. It was unbearable. I had tried pills, cortisone shots, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, energy healers, pretty much everything on the planet and nothing worked. Two of my friends, Dr. Karen Kan, and Lisa Warner, both asked me to work with them. I met with Karen twice and started to get some relief… then, I met twice with Lisa… and doing what she told me to do for about 6 weeks… the pain left me and never came back.

This led me to a self-inquiry process. Why was my aunt able to get rid of her cancer in two weeks without traditional medical intervention? Why did implementing what I learned from Lisa work on me? Why is anyone able to heal using natural methods? Could it be that the body has the innate ability to heal itself? I had to know… so I started researching and contacting people who might have the answers to these questions.

While watching this film, I want the viewer to experience what I did as I heard powerful stories from people who have had miraculous healings. Yes, I had my own personal story… but what would more natural doctors share with me if I interviewed them? I am a book publisher and the first 50 books we published were by functional medical practitioners (natural doctors of all sorts), so I thought I knew some things. The more I interviewed doctors, researchers, scientists, and people with a heck of a lot more initials after their name then me… the more I learned that I didn’t know about health and healing. Working with these experts was special because they had so much knowledge and were so willing to share it with me.

This film was created solely because of monetary gifts from those who believed in me and in the project. It felt amazing to share this and put their name in the film credits.

Working with the crew was great because they were all so talented and I have a motto, “Why would we do this if we aren’t going to have fun?” And have fun we did! Working on a film is amazing because by the time it’s finished, we basically have a new family.
