Product Description


[Dreher] synthesizes a vast amount of research on brain-body connections.

(Arnold Brown Future Survey)

This comprehensive and provocative book fills an unmet need in documenting the current status of the science of mind-body medicine.

(Clair A. Francomano, M.D., National Institute of Aging)

Our thoughts and feelings have profound effects on basic biological processes as well as long-term physical health. Henry Dreher's artistically written, landmark book, Mind-Body Unity: A New Vision for Mind-Body Science and Medicine, explores how this is possible. Dreher deftly explains how both major and minor diseases are influenced by our social and psychological worlds. This is the best book I have seen on the topic in the last fifty years.

(James W. Pennebaker, The University of Texas at Austin)

In this masterful overview of mind-body medicine, Henry Dreher weaves together many strands―from scientific, humanistic, and spiritual domains―to provide a rigorous and thoughtful synthesis of mind-body science and medicine's capacity to heal both body and soul.

(Redford B. Williams, M.D., Duke University)

Henry Dreher is one of our great healing resources. In these clear and comprehensive essays he shows us the science and social context and guides us to the heart and soul of mind-body medicine.

(James S. Gordon, M.D., Director, Center for Mind-Body Medicine and Former Chairman, White House Commission on Complimentary and Alternative Medicine Policy)

Finest book on subject 10 April 2005
By Georgia Raye - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I heard the author speak and decided to buy this book. It transcended my expectations. This is the richest book I have read on the mind-body relationship. It's erudite and scholarly but it is also readable and very engaging. You probably need to have some prior interest in the mind-body field or be professionally involved to fully enjoy what Dreher accomplishes here, he really delves into the science behind mind-body medicine. He concludes that the notion of a mind-body connection is too simplistic--mind and body are completely unified. He backs this up with the latest scientific discoveries on how the mind, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, and immune systems are so intertwined. Every chapter and especially the second half of the book goes into the mind-body treatments that can best influence health, and here he makes some controversial arguments that deep psychotherapy, whether individual or group, may have a more profound impact on health than isolated mind-body practices like relaxation. This book will raise your consciousness about the mind-body relationship and keep you interested throughout by discussing all the controversies in the field and what they really mean for human beings suffering from psychological or physical ill-health. It certainly raised my consciousness.
