Mind - Heal The Body
Embrace the concept of Well-ness
In the best-selling companion volume to the PBS series, acclaimed television journalist
Bill Moyers explores the fascinating, complex, powerful connection between mind and body
in human health. Ancient medical science told us our minds and bodies are one. So did
philosophers of old. Now, modern science and new research are helping us to understand
these connections. In Healing And The Mind, Bill Moyers talks with physicians, scientists,
therapists, and patients -- people who are taking a new look at the meaning of sickness
and health. In a series of fascinating and provocative interviews, he discusses their
search for answers to perplexing questions: How do emotions translate into chemicals in
our bodies? How do thoughts and feelings influence health? How can we collaborate with our
bodies to encourage healing? With the incisive style that has made Bill Moyers's skills as
an interviewer legendary, Healing And The Mind is destined to influence how America thinks
about sickness and health.
