Reinventing Medicine is nothing less than a vision of the future of the practice of medicine. In his book, Dr. Dossey provides the scientific and medical proof that the spiritual dimension works in healing. Citing the work of scientists at such well-known institutions as Princeton, Harvard, and Stanford, he conclusively demonstrates that spiritual tools such as intercessory prayer, dreams, coincidence, and intuition have measurable, powerful, and profound effects on how we heal.
His argument forces us to go beyond the practices of conventional medicine, which he calls Era I, and mind/body medicine, which he calls Era II, leading us to a new dimension, the spiritual, "nonlocal" dimension of Era III. What was viewed in the past as random or episodic events in healing are shown, through scientific evidence, to be related and connected to a higher force at workDossey calls this force the non-local mind. Through our understanding and recognition of the nonlocal mind, Dossey suggests ways in which it can be used for diagnosis and treatment, speeding the healing process, and giving clues for gaining information related to illness and pain. This vision of the coming era in medicine is one of promise and spiritual fulfillment that will surely change the face of medicine forever.

Era III medicine, an idea whose time has come, is the practice of Non-local, Eternity Medicine. Recognizing that the mind of the patient is not limited to the physical body or even to the individual, great strides in healing and the practice of healing have been made. We are each the beneficiaries of this evolutionary process. Beginning with Era I Medicine, that of the physical body/ mechanical processes only, our understanding of the mind and it¿s connection to the health and attitude of the patient evolved into Era II Medicine, the acknowledgement of the relationship of the mind / body connection in health and healing. Era II, however, recognized only ¿the mind¿ within a ¿single person¿ and connected to or as a function of the anatomical brain. The triumph and opportunity of Era III Medicine is that it brilliantly and limitlessly replaces an outdated concepts of linear, logical, scientific model for healing in lieu of a total Wholeness/ Wellness concept, which revolves around the spiritual nature of the being/ patient.
Have you ever suspected that healing requires something more than either an entirely body-based approach... or even a mind-body approach? Would you like to better understand how powerful prayer really is for healing? If so, you'll love Larry Dossey's book, 'Reinventing Medicine', in which he describes this new era of non-local medicine. Dossey cites very convincing scientific studies that indicate healing can be achieved at a distance by directing loving thoughts, intentions and prayers to others -- even if they are not aware that these loving thoughts are being extended to them. Dossey's revolutionary book inspires us to consider the healing power of what he calls Eternity Medicine in our everyday lives right now. I get goose-bumps of excitement and joy each time I read this book, and give it my highest recommendation
