The key to TIMELESS HEALING is what Dr Benson calls 'remembered wellness' - a term which may revolutionise the way that health care is practised in the Western world. A Harvard physician who has been immersed in science for thirty years, Dr Benson explains how he became convinced that humans are literally programmed with a need for faith. He reveals that when people call upon faith, they activate neurological pathways for dramatic self-healing. Detailing the scientific evidence, Dr Benson clearly shows how you, along with a caring physician or healer, can tap into your reservoir of 'remembered wellness' to affect and cure 60 to 90 per cent of medical complaints.
In this important new study, Dr Benson does not dismiss modern health care out of hand. Instead, he proposes practical ways in which patients and the medical community can make faith an integral part of modern medicine, drawing upon all components of health care - medications, medical procedures, alternative remedies and self-care that includes remembered wellness.
Along TIMELESS HEALING's journey of enlightenment, Herbert Benson creates a wonderful web of personal anecdotes, scientific research, social commentary, and spiritual wisdom that outlines a powerful life-transforming and society-changing blueprint for healing.
