"We do have biological LIVE and DIE mechanisms within us. . . the state of mind changes the state of the body by working through the central nervous system, the endocrine system and the immune system. Exceptional patients manifest the will to live in its most potent form . . . ' writes Dr Bernie Siegel. Drawing on his clinical experience Dr Seigel show how, by reaching out to others, we can alleviate stress and release the body's healing mechanism. In this extraordinary book he shows that when apparently terminal patients take control of their illness they can change, enrich and often prolong their lives far beyond scientific and medical expectation. Through the healing power of love patients who have come under his care have learned that hope and joy can work miracles."

In 1979, Dr. Bernie S. Siegel, a successful surgeon, took a class from Elisabeth Kübler-Ross that focused on crayon drawing for healing, especially with patients facing life-threatening disease. Siegel incorporated into his practice these techniques — many of which were laughed at by others in the medical community. But his Exceptional Cancer Patients “carefrontation” protocol facilitated healings, often deemed miraculous, and attracted attention. “Dr. Bernie” discovered and shared the fact that while patients might need antibiotics, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, their bodies also want to heal. He found that this innate propensity could be aided by unconventional practices, including drawing. Why? Drawing produces symbols often representing the subconscious. Siegel shows how to interpret drawings to help with everything from understanding why we are sick to making treatment decisions and communicating with loved ones. All those facing ill health, and those caring for them, personally and professionally, will welcome the hands-on, patient-proven practices offered here.

Full of inspiring stories of patients who have achieved remissions and miraculous cures for illnesses such as mulitple sclerosis and cancer, Dr Siegel shows us how emotions such as love, hope, joy and peace of mind have strong physiological effects on each of us, as do depression and dispair. Peace, Love and Healing teaches us to be receptive to the messages our mind gives our body through dreams and symbols, and how to view illness as a 'reset button' enabling us to redirect our lives. Equally importantly the book explains how to give your body healing messages therough the use of meditation, visualization and relaxation. Although the important role of modern medicine is recognised, Bernie Siegel offers us many examples and case studies of the remarkable results that we can achieve through body-mind communication and reiterates his essential point - that love heals.

Dr. Bernie Siegel--revered thought-leader, retired surgeon, and prolific author--offers meaningful life-lessons inspired by the significant quotes pulled from his notebooks. "Make your own Bible. Select and collect all the words and sentences that in all your readings have been to you like the blast of a trumpet." - Ralph Waldo Emerson Dr. Bernie Siegel is the author of many books on the healing power of the body and the spirit, but this time he wants encourage readers not only to learn from his life and advice, but to create their own manuals for living as well. With the quotes that have filled the pages of his journals and the lessons he has gleaned from them over the years, this book serves as inspiration for readers to assemble their own book of collected wisdom--and their own understanding of the answers to life's big questions. For as long as mankind has populated the earth, we have looked to nature, elders, philosophers, and prophets for answers to questions about God and life and death and why we are here. We piece together belief systems from the messages that resonate most deeply: scribbling down a Bible verse on a post-it on the fridge or an affirmation on the bathroom mirror each morning. Whether speaking with patients, reading the words of great thinkers, and in conversation with God, Dr. Bernie Siegel has recorded the most meaningful quotes and lessons, and now he shares them with you.

By reading this text, students will become astute at distinguishing among those traditional and CAM health practices that are helpful, those that have been scientifically tested, and those that may offer no benefit.
