Giới thiệu

Cure: A Journey Into The Science Of Mind Over Body - A skeptical and “well-researched page-turner” that looks at the new science behind the mind’s surprising ability to heal the body and “may very well lead to widespread changes in the way we practice medicine” (Susannah Cahalan, New York Post).

While we have accepted that stress or anxiety can damage our health, the idea of positive “healing thoughts” has long suffered from its association with New Age gurus and spiritual healers. Recently, however, serious scientists from a range of fields have been uncovering evidence that our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs can ease pain, heal wounds, fend off infection and heart disease, and even slow the progression of AIDS and some cancers.

In Cure, award-winning science writer Jo Marchant travels the world to meet the physicians, patients, and researchers on the cutting edge of this new world of medicine. Drawing on the very latest research, Marchant explores the vast potential of the mind’s ability to heal, lays out its limitations, and explains how we can make use of the findings in our own lives. Written with clarity and compassion, Cure “is a rewarding read that seeks to separate the wishful and emotion-driven from the scientifically tested” (Washington Post).
