Health & Healing

Health and Healing BooksThe art of healing through alternative or mystical methods, though sometimes a combination of medical science with New Age thinking. For example, Deepak Chopra's huge breadth of knowledge and writing in the health field. As early as the mid-1980s he launched himself as a staunch advocate of the connection between mind and body, advocating meditation and self-awareness as primary factors in both illness and healing. He later went on to examine the mysterious phenomenon of spontaneous healing of cancer. Here he introduced quantum physics as a means of understanding the mind-body connection, arguing that consciousness is the basic foundation of nature and the universe. Chopra emphasises that the roots of Indian healing lie in changing the holistic balance of mind and body. Other major books in the the 'general healing' category of mind-body-spirit literature are the works of Caroline Myss and Brandon Bays.
