How Healing Works is the most comprehensive and comprehensible book on how and why people heal. It is a masterful survey of the research on the physical, psychological, and spiritual factors that help us regain and retain our health.
Drawing on 40 years of research and patient care, author Wayne Jonas, M.D. explains how 80 percent of healing occurs organically and how to activate the healing process.
In How Healing Works, Dr. Jonas lays out a revolutionary new way to approach injury, illness, and wellness. Dr. Jonas explains the biology of healing and the science behind the discovery that 80 percent of healing can be attributed to the mind-body connection and other naturally occurring processes. Jonas details how the healing process works and what we can do to facilitate our own innate ability to heal.
Dr. Jonas’s advice will change how we consume health care, enabling us to be more in control of our recovery and lasting wellness. Simple line illustrations communicate statistics and take-aways in a memorable way. Stories from Dr. Jonas’s practice and studies further illustrate his method for helping people get well and stay well after minor and major medical events.
The book is divided into three main parts:
Amplify your healing by sharing your experiences with others along the path of life. The healer and the healee share one goal and one mutually beneficial process. The healing process benefits both and all others with whom they are connected. And that, on the greater human scale, is how healing works.
