Cure A Journey into the Science of Mind Over Body Synopsis

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The field of mind-body medicine is plagued by wild claims that mislead patients and instil false hope. But as scientists in a range of fields uncover solid evidence that our minds influence our bodies far more profoundly than previously thought, there is now great promise too.

'Should be compulsory reading for all young doctors' NEW SCIENTIST
