This is an extraordinary new approach to healing by an extraordinary physician-writer - a book filled with the mystery, wonder, and hope of people who have experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from cancer and other serious illnesses. Dr Deepak Chopra, a respected New England endocrinologist, began his search for answers when he saw patients in his own practice who completely recovered after being given only a few months to live. In the mid-1980s he returned to his native India to study Ayurveda, humanity's most ancient healing tradition.
Now he has brought together the current research of Western medicine, neuroscience, and physics with the insights of Ayurvedic theory to show that the human body is controlled by a 'network of intelligence' grounded in quantum reality. Not a superficial psychological state, this intelligence lies deep enough to change the basic patterns that design our physiology - with the potential to defeat cancer, heart disease, and even aging itself. In this inspiring and pioneering work, Dr Chopra offers us both a fascinating intellectual journey and a deeply moving chronicle of hope and healing.
"Deepak Chopra's book Quantam Healing is MUST reading for every advanced - or should I say evolved - health-care giver. It will widen our horizons, enlarge our comprehension and help us grasp the path we are on into the new century. Exciting, stimulating and highly recommended"
"Dr Chopra writes with almost magical simplicity... this is an important book for anyone interested in maintaining or restoring health"
"In a highly readable manner, Dr Chopra shows the relevance and wisdom of a number of the concepts of Ayurveda to a modern systems/information theory of health and illness as exemplified by the rapidly developing field of psychoneuroimmunology"
"Dr Chopra is a fine, evocative writer who maneuvers his way suavely through medicine, physics and metaphysics. For anyone who has awaited a Tao of medicine, this book is a most welcome arrival"
