Should be compulsory reading for all young doctors * * NEW SCIENTIST * * Writing with simplicity, clarity and style, and covering an enormous range of material, [Marchant] surveys with grace what we think we know, and what we would like to know, about the mysterious and troubling relationship between our minds and our bodies * * GUARDIAN * * A well-researched page-turner . . . may very well lead to widespread changes in the ways we practice medicine * * NEW YORK POST * * A diligent and useful work that makes the case for 'holistic' medicine while warning against the snake-oil salesmen who have annexed that word for profit * * SUNDAY TIMES * * A rewarding read that seeks to separate the wishful and emotion-driven from the scientifically tested * * WASHINGTON POST * * This is popular science writing at its very best . . . I would recommend this book to anybody who has a mind and a body -- HENRY MARSH * * author of DO NO HARM: STORIES OF LIFE, DEATH, AND BRAIN SURGERY * * A revved-up, research-packed explication of the use of mind in medicine, from meditation to guided visualisation.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The field of mind-body medicine is plagued by wild claims that mislead patients and instil false hope. But as scientists in a range of fields uncover solid evidence that our minds influence our bodies far more profoundly than previously thought, there is now great promise too. In her eye-opening new book, Jo Marchant delves deep into the latest scientific research and asks: - Are those who turn to alternative medicine deluded, or are they on to something? - Can our thoughts, beliefs and emotions influence our physical health? - Can we train our brains to heal our bodies? CURE takes us on a remarkable journey and offers a new and thought-provoking view of what it means to be human.
