Can positive thinking make us well? Does loneliness cause illness? Written by a Harvard professor, this study of mind-body healing practices examines a range of treatments and beliefs from early religious ideas to mesmerism and acupuncture (first scorned then embraced by Mao), where sufferers, often frustrated by Western medicines, seek solutions from within. Dr Harrington evaluates stories of miraculous recoveries and discusses the science behind alternative treatments, whilst acknowledging the human need to make sense of suffering.
