This book is wonderful. It really helped me several years ago when my father was dying of lung cancer. It really promotes the power of positive thinking.
Siegel, a New Haven surgeon, believes that the power of healing stems from the human mind and will, that his scalpel only buys time against cancer, and that self-love and determination are more important than choice of therapy. His philosophy has caused radical changes in his practice. Siegel recounts many arresting anecdotes: joyous stories of patients who survived against all odds, sad chronicles of those who seemingly gave up and assented to their own deaths. The author's credentials make this one of the more plausible books on the mind-body connection.
Great book for cancer patients, caregivers and anyone who needs healing.Love heals!
book was published in 1986 and still reveals such insights into patient self-healing.
