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 quite profoundly, there is now great promise, too. Jo Marchant attempts to use scientific research to find out if alternative medicines work; if our thoughts, beliefs and emotions influence our physical health; and if we can train our brains to heal our bodies.

An awesome read! A well balanced case has been made for why and how our minds are intricately woven into our body system, and how the two can be used together, along with conventional medicine, to create Cure, prevention and well-being.

Jo’s willingness to ask some searching questions of conventional medical treatment and also hold up to scrutiny the mind-body argument is both refreshing and relieving! To see a scientist really go to work on how valid mind-body treatments are, yet not completely dismiss them has me Feeling there is hope for us! Her balanced and articulate views are well conveyed in this book...the narrator needs a medal, also! To get so many accents, spoken so sensitively and accurate helped me read (listen) with even more awareness...I got well and truly enrolled in the story!

Loved it!

This is the story of how your life shapes your brain and how your brain shapes your life. Locked in the silence and darkness of your skull, the brain fashions the rich narratives of your reality and your identity. Join renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman for a journey into the questions at the heart of our existence. What is reality? Who are 'you'? How do you make decisions? Why does your brain need other people? How is technology poised to change what it means to be human?

On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

The Honeymoon Effect: A state of bliss, passion, energy, and health resulting from a huge love. Your life is so beautiful that you can't wait to get up to start a new day and you thank the Universe that you are alive. Think back on the most spectacular love affair of your life - the Big One that toppled you head over heels. For most, it was a time of heartfelt bliss, robust health, and abundant energy - a first-hand experience of Heaven on Earth.

Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point: really hard, and not much fun at all. And then you find yourself asking if the goal is even worth the hassle. Maybe you're in a Dip: a temporary setback that you will overcome if you keep pushing. But maybe it's really a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better, no matter how hard you try.
