Healing and the Mind by Bill Moyers
This companion book to the groundbreaking PBS series of the same name finds Bill Moyers interviewing 15 of the pioneers in mind-body healing to search for the answers to two basic questions: How do thoughts and feelings influence health? How is healing related to the mind? These amply illustrated interviews go a long way toward answering both questions, and are especially useful for someone approaching alternative medicine for the first time. Moyers speaks to physicians, researchers and other experts in biofeedback, meditation, yoga, psychoneuroimmunology, Chinese medicine, and others to explore the relationship between the mind and body. What he discovers is that people get better when they take care of themselves, reduce stress, and utilize these techniques. They may heal faster, become stronger, relax more, and build a healthier immune system.
