Healing Ourselves (Kobo eBook)
A leading mind-body researcher provides an invaluable resource of solid scientific evidence for consciousness-based healing—along with practices anyone can use.
Spontaneous remission, the placebo effect, and energy healing—these phenomena have baffled the medical community for decades. What do all these marvels tell us? “Our current models of medicine fall short of understanding the depths of our human healing potential,” says Dr. Shamini Jain. “We are on the cusp of finally becoming awake to our human healing potential. A growing number of scientists are exploring a new path—a true expansion of science joined with understandings from ancient concepts of spirituality.”
With Healing Ourselves, Dr. Jain presents a new vision of health and healing. Here she rejects the “either-or” thinking that has placed conventional medicine at odds with so-called alternative methods—offering an integrated path based on sound scientific evidence and personal empowerment. Join her to explore:
Biofield science—peer-reviewed research on the inseparable relationship between consciousness and healing
The placebo and beyond—what placebo research tells us about the power of consciousness to heal ourselves, whether we choose drugs, surgery, or holistic medicine
Evidence—what strong, published research actually says about the healing power of holistic practices such as yoga, tai chi, meditation, and energy healing
The Healing Keys—in-depth instruction with evidence-based recommendations and ancient spiritual practices that you can integrate into your life for healing yourself
Today more than ever, we realize that we must change the way we think about health care—and our ability to heal ourselves. “The good news is there is a way forward,” teaches Dr. Jain. “The flame that lights the path burns brighter than the darkness of ignorance and suffering we have found ourselves in.” With Healing Ourselves, this inspiring teacher shares a holistic model of health that we have known in our hearts, all along, to be true.
