Summary
Practical, intellectually stimulating, and superbly researched, Mind/Body Medicine gives you the most up-to-date information on what is now known about the vital role of the mind in health. Based on the latest findings from America's leading scientific institutions, and written by physicians, psychologists, and medical researchers with extensive clinical experience, Mind/Body Medicine discusses the connection between stress and disease; examines such mind/body approaches as biofeedback, hypnosis, meditation, and psychotherapy; explains how psychological and social support systems can actually lead to better health; explores the mind's role in pain, heart disease, cancer, the immune system, diabetes, skin problems, arthritis, asthma, gastrointestinal disease, and infertility; and shows consumers how to become active patients, working with health-care practitioners in managing their physical well-being. Edited by Daniel Goleman, a New York Times writer on health and human behavior, and Joel Gurin, Consumer Reports science editor, Mind/Body Medicine gives you state-of-the-art data to help you make the right health decisions for yourself and your family. This important book tells you what is known about mind/body interactions and discusses specific techniques to help you use your mind for better health
