Product Description

Book Description

The bestselling book on the subject of self-healing by a doctor who has watched 'terminal' patients take control of their illness and live.

From the Back Cover

When a distinguished American surgeon talks of 'healing' and of 'miracles' we must pay attention. In this bestselling book Dr Bernie Siegel shows that when apparently terminal patients take control of their illness they can change, enrich and often prolong their lives far beyond scientific and medical expectation. Also. by reaching out to others they can alleviate stress and release the body's healing mechanisms.

At the same time Dr Siegel describes how, by changing their attitude to their patients, doctors can give new hope to those who had apparently lost the will to live. Through the healing power of love, patients who have come under his own care have learned that hope, joy and a positive state of mind can work miracles.

Above all, this moving and hopeful book is a remarkable classic of modern medicine which has had - and continues to have - an enormous effect on the way we care for ourselves and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars How To Be A Better Cancer Survivor 28 Jun 2005
Bernie Siegel is the founder of ECAP (Exceptional Cancer Patients) and much of this book is drawn from his experiences with these patients. The purpose of the book is to help cancer survivors to become exceptional patients who learn to embrace life more fully and live longer. Usually these patients are able to take control of their lives and treatments in partnership with their doctors. There is a connection between mind and body which can be exploited in order to maximize chances for recovery. The will to live is very important in this process. In arguably the most interesting chapter of the text, the author describes the characteristics of exceptional patients and other notable survivors. The book provides much information and hope which anyone battling cancer will find uplifting.

Bernie Seigel is a man of overwhelming compassion and good sense. I have just bought yet another copy of this wonderful book to give to yet another friend who is embarking on the minefield which is breast cancer, a path I first trod in 1994 and when a friend recommended this wonderful book I read and re-read it through certain times of my journery through cancer and out the other end. I related to so much of the content that at last I felt I was NOT alone and others had been here before me and survived. We are the lucky ones, I have many friends that I made through this journery who are no longer with us but they gained great strength through reading this book and it enabled them to change the time they had left and make every day count. I do not know why some of us survive longer than others but we can all make a change to our lives that will enhance it along the way. I know I have changed my life in so many ways and my attitudes have changed greatly, I always say and people find this hard to believe but cancer bought more to me that it every took away and this book certainly helped set me on this hopeful path. This book is a MUST for anyone who is forced to confront their own mortality "A truly life changing book" PLEASE READ IT SOON.

I can't believe I am the first person to review this wonderful book on Amazon.co.uk. Bernie Siegel - a surgeon and oncologist - possesses that rare talent: an ability to combine spirituality with medicine, in a manner that is truly ground-breaking - although he DOES point out that it is only in recent decades that, regarding health, the link between body and soul has been so completely severed, with 'modern' therapeutic theories seeming to believe that merely treating outward symptoms is the same as achieving inner healing. It is not.
This book with transform how you think about life, death, illness, healing, love and the doctor-patient relationship. It is a book of hope, love and immense charity. Even better, it is a rolling good read, filled with anedotal yarns, witty asides and inspirational, real-life stories of survivors who defied the often terminal disgnoses meted out by "all-knowing" MD's - which some doctors seem to think stands for 'Medical Diety', quips Siegel - and went on to find peace, and often longevity.
A must for every person who wants to know more about how the body and the spirit influence one another.

5.0 out of 5 stars You must read this book! 20 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Anyone with any type of illness should read this book. Dr. Siegel was my surgeon when I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease 15 years ago. He autographed the first edition hardcover version of this book when it first came out. He helped me to survive and I am now re-reading this book since i've just been diagnosed with another type of Hodgkin's Disease. Patients and their families will find great value in this wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helping with Cancer 22 Dec 2009
This book was given to me in 1993, when my first wife had terminal cancer. It helped me to understand and deal with the period up to and after her death. I have bought a number of copies over the years for other friends who have experienced the illness. It has helped some to recover and others to deal with more serious outcomes. The book never ages and is an inspiration to many. Read it and even better - get a doctor to read if they haven't already done so.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring book. 11 July 2009
This is an amazing book full of insights and wisdom, written by a medical doctor who gives a scientific slant to what the holistic community have been saying for decades. It is beautifully written and clearly demostrates the body/mind connection in health, sickness and healing. It should be read by everyone in the caring professions from doctors to holistic therapists and everyone in betweeen.We are all effected by illness at some point in our lives, whether personally or through loved ones, this book shows you that you aleady have what you need to create your own miracles.

Having spent time with dying friends, I found this to be an encouraging, cheerful book. I appreciated the positive emphasis on attitude, and also the information about saying goodbye to a dying person, giving that person permission to leave. Also, I appreciated how much the author revealed of his own feelings about death and dying.
