Quantum Healing by Deepak Chopra
Deepak Chopra (6) -
Deepak Chopra, MD is a globally renowned expert in mind-body healing. He’s a prolific author, having written over 55 books on topics such as mind-body health, spirituality, peach and quantum mechanics and many of them have been best-sellers.
His books have been published worldwide in over 85 languages, with Peace Is The Way, winning a prestigious Quill Award and The Book of Secrets being awarded the top prize in the 2005 Nautilus Book Awards.
Deepak has a medical background and received his medical degree from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. He also worked as chief of staff at the Boston Regional Medical Centre.
In addition to writing books, he founded the Chopra Centre for Wellbeing in 1996, along with David Simon, MD. The centre is located in Carlsbad, California and aims to help people experience physical healing, emotional freedom and higher states of consciousness. The centre runs a variety of courses, training programmes and retreats and blends Eastern and Western medicine. One of the best known, and original programmes, is Perfect Health, which helps people increase and maintain a sense of wellbeing.
Deepak hosts a weekly Wellness Radio programme on Sirius/XM Stars and is an impressive speaker and presenter. In between all this, he somehow finds time to write a column for the San Francisco Chronicle and Washington Post and contributes regularly to a number of other publications too.
Deepak has been lecturing for the Update in Internal Medicine event for over 10 years, is a fellow for the American College of Physicians, a member of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and a senior scientist with the Gallup Organisation.
The synopsis provided above I found to be an accurate portrayal of this book. One predominant question in my mind as I was reading this book which is now about 15 years old, is how has science progressed since then and what changes or differences to this book would there be if Deepak Chopra were to write it now?
Although I am not coming from an advanced health care giver's perspective and I have a limited physiological understanding, I found it to be very well written. Deepak Chopra writes in a grounded and accessible style that's enjoyable and in most parts surprisingly easy to understand given the nature of the subject. I feel that this book has provided me with a valuable jigsaw piece; it has sown some seeds and cultivated others a little further, such as my understanding of DNA. For anyone interested in the mind-body connection, I think that this book is worth reading and would certainly recommend it.
