Overview

Combining recent research from Cognitive Neuroscience with wise masters of the past, it teaches ways of integrating faith-based healing into mainstream medicine. Since patients are using alternative practices for chronic conditions, then it is wise to bring those into the medical therapy mix. This book teaches docs ways to do this without going crazy or quitting the profession.

And it is not just for physicians - anyone will benefit from this book filled with nuggets of insight into such topics as: placebo effect, embodiment, optimism, beauty, relaxation response, creativity, and spirituality. It explains a way of seeing the world - a cognitive scaffold - that incorporates both rational thinking and magical thinking.

The fundamental bedrock upon which sits our pyramid of increasing healthcare complexity, is made up of those acts that bring forth comfort, relaxation and trust. These include the essential healing elements of time, tenderness and touch.

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift." - Albert Einstein

Editorial Reviews

Board-certified Pain Management - Rita Hancock, MD
I am a board-certified pain management sub-specialist who, like Dr. Kragie, believes strongly that understanding and utilizing the mind-body-Spirit connection is critically important in patient care. However, I differ from her in that I write exclusively from the Christian world view...Overall, because Dr. Kragie's book is such a well-thought-out, practical, fair-and-balanced treatise of the subject, I give it my highest recommendation. Furthermore, I pray it helps countless people..
Trinity University - Matt Bates, PhD
"... The physical and the mental are deeply interconnected and should not be treated in isolation. Dr. Kragie urges healers to treat the whole patient by adopting the best practices of what she calls "Earth" medicine (empirically-based, scientific therapies) and "Heaven" medicine (techniques that cannot easily be proven or described through the scientific method). She calls on healers from both camps to set aside their parochialism and mutual mistrust and build a "Rainbow Bridge"
Kindle - Mindy Allport-Settle
Finally, a doctor and industry insider has recognized the benefits of combining mainstream medicine and so-called "alternative" medicine. This book provides a platform for medical professionals to understand how to combine Eastern and Western medicine along with new and emerging treatment plans and options. I hope it becomes standard reading material for medical students as we all learn to provide better (and more effective) treatment for patients. Well done!

    A great book that helps us understand how the mind modulates our bodies, and does so, unconsciously. Explains the 'peripheral mind' well, and how we can tap into its working abilities to better function and improve our well being.
