From the Mind Into the Body 16 May 2012
By D. Jump - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a fascinating book about how factors such as culture, age, and gender impact the kinds of "diseases" we experience. As you read the case histories both past and present, you begin to realize how much of our discomfort begins in the mind and ends up in the body. Another great book for knowing what to do with this information if you have chronic pain or other issues is "Healing Back Pain" by John Sarno. Or check Dr. David Schechter's website at Amazing what historical perspective will do for your outlook!
