Show synopsis A woman who has been losing her sight for 17 years suddenly reverses her own blindness. Another undergoes major surgery without anaesthesia. A couple pull back from divorce after hypnotically becoming each other. These extraordinary stories from the casebook of David Calof are typical of the solutions he believes possible when a patient's unconscious mind is brought to the task of healing. Each chapter in this book reads like a "whodunit", taking us on a search for clues and solutions to patients' mystery ailments. We are told that to the unconscious, mind and body are one; hence, one client's ability to purge her body of pre-cancerous cells through the use of mental imagery. We also read that, far from being the exclusive province of hypnotists, trance is a natural phenomenon. We all encounter it daily, and so we are all capable of its magic.
