Pat M. (PatC-M) reviewed Healing from the Heart: A Leading Surgeon Combines Eastern and Western Traditions to Create the Medicine of the Future on
"In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Oz describes his pioneering work combining cutting edge Western medicine with such Eastern techniques as acupuncture, yoga, and chi-gong, as well as such controversial therapies as hypnosis, music, massage, reflexology, aroma therapy and energy healing. For the first time, these "complementary" therapies are being systematically studied on his high-tech surgical unit--and patients are making real breakthroughs. Their inspiring and affecting stories are the heart of this book-- from the extraordinary discipline of Frank Torre, who used his pro sports training to "psyche" himself into healing after heart-transplant surgery, to the "impossible" recovery of blues great Johnny Copeland, who was roused from a seemingly impenetrable coma through the force of his own music. In recounting his patient's experience, Dr.Oz offers a blueprint for a radically innovative medicine for the new millennium, drawing the best from Eastern and Western therapies and empowering patients to become partners with doctors in promoting their own recovery."
