Love, Medicine And Miracles
  • Love, Medicine And Miracles

  • 'We do have biological LIVE and DIE mechanisms within us. . . the state of mind changes the state of the body by working through the central nervous system, the endocrine system and the immune system. Exceptional patients manifest the will to live in its most potent form . . . ' writes Dr Bernie Siegel. Drawing on his clinical experience Dr Seigel show how, by reaching out to others, we can alleviate stress and release the body's healing mechanism. In this extraordinary book he shows that when apparently terminally ill patients take control of their illness they can change, enrich and often prolong their lives far beyond scientific and medical expectation. Through the healing power of love patients who have come under his care have learned that hope and joy can work miracles.

Bernie Siegel attended Cornell University Medical College and then trained as a paediatric and general surgeon at Yale New Haven Hospital and the children's hospital of Pittsburgh. In 1978 he founded ECaP (Exceptional Cancer Patients), a form of individual and group therapy which encourages personal change and healing. Now retired as a surgeon, he lives in Connecticut.
