Overview

Healing from the Heart combines the best of cutting-edge Western medicine with ancient methods of self-healing. Dr. Oz opens the door to an all-encompassing holistic approach to healing that comes from the heart. According to Dr. Oz, the mysteries of this remarkably complex organ extend far beyond the physical. It is the direct link to our emotions, our psychological makeup, and our spirituality, all of which have a profound effect on our natural powers of healing. In this authoritative book Dr. Oz shows how we can help heal ourselves by offering breakthrough insights on the benefits of hypnosis, visual imagery, music, yoga, massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, acupuncture, Chinese chi-gong, touch therapies, prayer, and vitamin and dietary supplements. He reveals how, with these complementary treatments to traditional Western medicine, we can transform pre-surgery fear and post-surgical depression into relaxed, positive thinking that nurtures the spirit and actually helps to heal the heart.

"...cardiovascular surgeon describes his success combining high-tech Western medicine with complementary and Eastern techniques including acupuncture, reflexology, hypnosis... he empowers patients to be partners in their own recovery."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Oz, a noted cardiovascular surgeon and director of the Complementary Care Center at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, relates his experiences in combining complementary medicine with more traditional treatments. Today, his scientific approach is setting the standard for measuring outcomes and benefits of various complementary healing modalities in pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative cardiac surgery patients. His multidisciplinary team of nurses, energy healers, and various health practitioners continues to integrate and investigate the roles of music therapy, hypnotherapy, nutrition, massage therapy, yoga, and therapeutic touch in allopathic medicine. Not since Norman Cousins's Anatomy of an Illness as Perceived by the Patient (LJ 9/1/79) has the patient's mind-body healing potential been so eloquently described. Recommended for all libraries. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/1/98; see also Julie Motz's Hands of Life (LJ 9/15/98) for another account of Dr. Oz's program.--Ed.]--Charles Wessel, Falk Lib. of the Health Sciences, Univ. of Pittsburgh
