An extraordinary new book on how the mind influences the body and how we can each use that knowledge for self-healing.
Full of inspiring stories of patients who have achieved remissions and miraculous cures for illnesses such as mulitple sclerosis and cancer, Dr Siegel shows us how emotions such as love, hope, joy and peace of mind have strong physiological effects on each of us, as do depression and dispair. Peace, Love and Healing teaches us to be receptive to the messages our mind gives our body through dreams and symbols, and how to view illness as a 'reset button' enabling us to redirect our lives. Equally importantly the book explains how to give your body healing messages therough the use of meditation, visualization and relaxation. Although the important role of modern medicine is recognised, Bernie Siegel offers us many examples and case studies of the remarkable results that we can achieve through body-mind communication and reiterates his essential point - that love heals.
