The field of mind-body medicine is plagued by wild claims that mislead patients and instil false hope. But as scientists in a range of fields uncover solid evidence that our minds influence our bodies far more profoundly than previously thought, there is now great promise too.
I listened to this book during my long walks last summer and found myself getting more and more excited by each and every chapter.
I appreciate the power that the mind has over the body from the work I do on a day to day basis, but this book takes that appreciation even further.
This book is the reason for my fascination in the placebo effect, in pain and how we can change the body by using our mind, but I just don’t feel that anything that I write can really do the book justice.
It really is an amazing, thought-provoking book, that is packed with so much information and written with scientific accurateness.
