Good Blood: A Journey of HealingISBN: 978-1-942891-22-2
When she was a child, her father said that he had “good blood” and it was why he and his wife survived and healed from the Holocaust. The author searched for the meaning and significance of her father’s words over two continents and through four generations. Her journey uncovered a unique voice of wisdom revealing mysteries of the healing powers within us and the existence of light in every situation that helps us overcome and transcend any obstacle.
This book is a quest into the depth of the human spirit. It is a rich family memoir, being deeply personal, sharing pain and joy and fear and forgiveness. It encompasses the themes of life and a topic in common with every reader: complicated family relationships.
Endorsed by Pam Huston and Dr. Norm Shealy.

- “Irit Schaffer cares deeply about faith, family and the ability we all have inside us to heal ourselves. Part tenaciously self-examining memoir; part love song to her wise and powerful Dad; part peace treaty with her unsinkable and recalcitrant mother; Good Blood is an acutely honest and profoundly affecting prayer of gratitude for the palliative and curative powers handed down from the Israelites who walked out of Egypt, to her parents who survived the Holocaust, to Irit herself and her professional healing practice, and to all the generations to come.” (Pam Houston, author, Contents May Have Shifted)
- “Good Blood is Good for the Soul, immortalizing the essence of the Good Life.” (Dr. Norm Shealy M.D., Ph.D. Founder & CEO, International Institute of Holistic Medicine)
