THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
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.
In her eye-opening new book, Jo Marchant delves deep into the latest scientific research and asks:
- Are those who turn to alternative medicine deluded, or are they on to something?
- Can our thoughts, beliefs and emotions influence our physical health?
- Can we train our brains to heal our bodies?
CURE takes us on a remarkable journey and offers a new and thought-provoking view of what it means to be human.
Should be compulsory reading for all young doctors NEW SCIENTIST
