This extraordinary book takes us into the heart of illness and healing. The inner pulse is the nexus of body, mind, and spirit that indicates the state of our health. By sharing in these pages the riveting life-and-death stories of patients he has worked with over the years, leading physician Marc Siegel helps us understand why the inner pulse matters so much to all of us.
One hospital patient who seems to be well on the way to recovery takes a sudden and drastic turn for the worse and dies unexpectedly. Another patient, thought to be only days from death, bounces back seemingly miraculously to vigorous health. Many doctors believe that these dramatic turns of events are so far from the norm that we can't learn anything from them. In The Inner Pulse, Marc Siegel asserts that these fascinating stories may revolutionize our understanding of illness, health, and healing.
Though the inner pulse is an internal radar that cannot be measured in precise scientific terms, Dr. Siegel reveals how you and your doctor can learn how to recognize it, understand what it is telling you about your physical health, and, in some cases, even influence it to promote healing and wellness. Dr. Siegel explores the many ways in which the inner pulse reveals itself. He confirms that your basic intuitions about your health may well be accurate and helps you use this self-awareness not only to gauge your own well-being but also to evaluate your physician's treatment decisions and help forge your path to recovery.
Any doctor will tell you that one of the most important factors in recovering from an illness is a patient's will to survive—the refusal to give up and the ability to keep fighting for life and health. What Dr. Siegel makes abundantly clear is the strong connection between the will to survive and a patient's strong connection to the inner pulse. Informed by the candid and moving account of Siegel's own story, The Inner Pulse digs deep to reveal crucial, untold truths.
