Overview

Spontaneous Healing: How to Discover and Enhance Your Body's Natural Ability to Maintain and Heal Itself by Andrew Weil

The body can heal itself. Spontaneous healing is not a miracle but a fact of biology—the result of the natural healing system that each one of us is born with. Drawing on fascinating case histories as well as medical techniques from around the world, Dr. Andrew Weil shows how spontaneous healing has worked to resolve life-threatening diseases, severe trauma, and chronic pain. Weil then outlines an eight-week program in which you'll discover:

- The truth about spontaneous healing and how it interacts with the mind
- The foods, vitamins, supplements, and tonic herbs that will help you enhance your innate healing powers
- Advice on how to avoid environmental toxins and reduce stress
- The strengths and weaknesses of conventional and alternative treatments
- Natural methods to ameliorate common kinds of illnesses
And much more!

This book reinforced much of the nutritional information found in some other works by Pollan and others, but was much more useful in providing a practical guide to health and wellness. It also delves more deeply into the minds role in wellness than anything I've read before. The world needs more physicians like Dr. Weil.

This is book on health, but it is written like a story book--filled with cases of hope and healing. It covers all aspects of altenative medicine, from nutrition to mind body medicine. I simply loved it and recommend it highly.
