Overview

A special hardcover gift edition of the New York Times bestseller: Norman Cousins's phenomenal bestseller on illness overcome and the triumph of the human spirit.
The premise of Norman Cousins's enormously influential work is that the human mind is capable of promoting the body's capacity for combating illness and healing itself even when faced with a seemingly hopeless medical predicament. The author recounts his personal experiences while working in close collaboration with his doctor to overcome a crippling and supposedly irreversible disease, and illustrates the life-saving and ultimately life-prolonging benefits to be gained by taking responsibility for one's own well-being. Cousins's story is inspirational reading for anyone contending with a serious illness.

Wow little did i know about vitamin c (ascorbic acid)! We need so much more than the FDA would have you believe, esp. if you have a disease. If you do have a disease i recomend you read this book now. Get a quality v-c powder get a dr. on board with you, call on the #Ultimate #Healer & do your own research. Start your path to healing today!
