Abstract:

Larry Dossey, one of the founding fathers of mind-body medicine, directs our attention to simple sources of healing that have been available for centuries--treasures often hidden in plain sight, from the power of optimism and of tears to speed recovery, to the surprising usefulness of dirt and bugs in curing disease and infection, to the benefits of doing nothing. Exploring the medical research that validates these simple remedies, Dossey encourages us to align ourselves with the wisdom of nature and allow true healing to take place.--From publisher description.
