Heavily supported by research while reading more like a well written novel, I found this to be quite a page turner.
Published in 2016, the studies presented truly are the most up to date we have, and are the base for research in progress.
As a scientist myself, I appreciate the author's cautious approach, and dedication to presenting high-quality evidence.
Dr. Kayla's #6 booklist pick:
"The idea of "healing thoughts" has long been suspect, but scientists have recently uncovered evidence that our minds have the power to ease pain, fight off infections and heart disease and even slow the progression of AIDS and some cancers.
To create this book, award winning writer, Jo Marchant (PhD in genetics and medical microbiology), travels the world to meet the physicians, patients and researchers on the cutting edge of this new world of medicine.
Drawing on the very latest research, she lays out the vast potential of our mind's ability to heal and explains, with clarity and compassion, how we can use these findings in our own lives."
Of the books on my list this year, I would say this is the most urgently relevant for today's health seeker and health consumer.
Please follow along with my blog, as I introduce my FINAL pick for my 2018 booklist, followed by an ongoing discussion about some of the topics these books bring up.
