Sue Baker's view...

A new look at the latest research into brain function overturning the accepted view of a complex brain unable to heal.

Who is Sue Baker

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. As recently as five years ago, brain surgeons and psychologists believed that damage or non-development of the brain meant irreversible decline or even death. Since then, pioneers such as psychiatrist Norman Doidge, the author of this book, have developed theories on ‘plasticity’. Put simply, this means the brain is a living organ that can heal itself and, with determination on our parts, can be programmed to overcome such apparent catastrophes as stroke damage, haemorrhages and dementia. If this sounds too good to be true, Doidge presents one case history after another proving that patients who have been given up for lost have come back to lead fulfilling lives. For instance, there is the story of toddler Will, whom the doctors said would remain little more than a vegetable even in his teens. But thanks to pioneering treatment he is now a normal boy. Doidge’s book is easy to read, easy to follow, uplifting and full of hope.

Synopsis

The Brain's Way of Healing Stories of Remarkable Recoveries and Discoveries by Norman Doidge

For centuries it was believed that the price paid for the brain's complexity was its inability to recover from damage or illness. Norman Doidge's The Brain's Way of Healing turns this belief on its head, and explains that this very sophistication is the source of a unique kind of healing. Doidge shows the latest advances in neuroplasticity, the discovery that the brain can change its structure and function in response to mental experience. He describes natural, non-invasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us - light, sound, vibration, movement - which pass through our senses and our bodies to awaken the brain's own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. The Brain's Way of Healing discusses a series of near-miracle recoveries: patients told they would never improve have years of chronic pain alleviated or damage from debilitating strokes undone, and symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, brain injury, autism or learning disorders are reversed. It also shows how the risk of dementia can be lowered by 60 per cent with easy-to-follow instructions. Through stories that present cutting-edge science with practical real-world applications, Doidge illustrates the principles of neuroplastic healing that we can all use to improve our brain's performance and health. Norman Doidge, M.D., is a psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, and New York Times bestselling author. His book The Brain That Changes Itself was chosen by the Dana Foundation's journal Cerebrum as the best general book ever written on the brain. He is on the faculty of the University of Toronto's Department of Psychiatry as well as the Research Faculty at Columbia University's Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research in New York City. He lives in Toronto.
