Quantum Healing, Exploring the Frontiers of Mind/Body Medicine
More than twenty-five years ago, Quantum Healing helped transform Deepak Chopra into a cultural phenomenon. Now Dr. Chopra, hailed byTime as "the poet-prophet of alternative medicine," returns to this groundbreaking work, adding the latest scientific research as well as expanded thoughts on the connection between body and mind. Inspired by the unexplained recovery of patients in his own practice who had been given just a few months to live, Dr. Chopra began his search for answers. After returning to his native India to explore humanity's most ancient healing tradition, Ayurveda, he combined those insights with Western medicine, neuroscience, and physics. What he discovered-a "network of intelligence" in the human body with the potential to defeat cancer, heart disease, even aging itself-forms the basis ofQuantum Healing. In this new edition, Dr. Chopra once again offers a fascinating intellectual journey and a deeply moving chronicle of hope and healing. Praise for Quantum Healing "Quantum Healing didn't set out to cure cancer or Alzheimer's or any other intractable disease. It set out to see the human body, and human existence in general, through wiser eyes. As a scientist I'm passionate about genes and the brain; as a person I'm totally fascinated by the origins of consciousness. Quantum Healing galvanized my intuition that these areas do not have to be separated."-Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, from the new Foreword "Deepak Chopra illuminates our true innate capacity for healing, growth, and evolution. With the wisdom of an experienced doctor, girded by science, he guides us to reclaim our natural power towards thriving. Chopra's work is paradigm-changing for medicine and helpful beyond measure for every human being seeking to evolve, flourish, and know our true nature."-Lisa Miller, Ph.D., author ofThe Spiritual Child and director of clinical psychology, Columbia University, Teachers College About the Author Deepak Chopra, M.D., is the author of more than eighty books, translated into more than forty-three languages, including numerous "New York Times" bestsellers.
