A ground-breaking study of what 'medical miracles' can teach us about health and healing.

Long after she's supposed to be dead, a woman with aggressive pancreatic cancer finds herself cured. A teenage girl suddenly and unexpectedly overcomes the cerebral palsy she's had since birth. An 85-year-old man stuns doctors when his CT scan shows that the tumours on his kidneys have inexplicably vanished. These are cases of 'spontaneous remission' or, what most people call 'medical miracles': incredible testaments of just what the human body is capable of in extremis.

Using his discoveries from these 'Olympians of healing', Harvard physician and psychiatrist Dr Jeff Rediger offers clear, practical advice on how we can improve our health, from diet and relaxation to a positive mindset when facing illness.
Cured is a fascinating and insightful book about how we can harness our body's natural resilience to take control of our health.
