Show synopsis In this work Dr Andrew Weil aims to show how the the concept of spontaneous healing can change all our lives for the better. Examining the mechanisms and processes of the body's own healing system he describes the operation of this system and explains its interactions with the mind, its biological organization and its methods of self-diagnosis, self-repair and regeneration. Numerous case histories provide evidence of the success of spontaneous healing in dealing with serious medical conditions, ranging from arthritis to heart disease to cancer. Calling on his traditional training as a medical doctor, and his knowledge of alternative treatments, Weil analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. Natural non-invasive measures such as acupuncture, biofeedback and herbal medicine, are suggested for the amelioration of both common maladies and life-threatening illnesses.
