Information: 256 pages, paperback
They say: Here is an extraordinary new approach to healing by an extraordinary physician-writer, a book filled with the mystery, wonder, and hope of people who have experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from cancer and other serious illnesses.
'Dr. Chopra is a fine, evocative writer who maneuvers his way suavely through medicine, physics and metaphysics. For anyone who has awaited a Tao of medicine, this book is a most welcome arrival.' - The New England journal of Medicine
'Deepak Chopra's book Quantum healing is must reading for every advanced - or should I say evolved - health care giver. It will widen our horizons, enlarge our comprehension, and help us grasp the path we are on into the new century. Excitng, stimulating, and highly recommended.'- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D.
Dr. Deepak Chopra, a respected New England endocrinologist, began his search for answers when he saw patients in his own practice who completely recovered after being given only a few months to live. In the mid-1980s he returned to his native India to explore Ayurveda, humanity's most ancient healing tradition. Now he has brought together the current research of Western medicine, neuroscience, and physics with the insights of Ayurvedic theory to show that the human body is controlled by a 'network of intelligence' grounded in quantum reality. Not a superficial psychological state, this intelligence lies deep enough to change the basic patterns that design our physiology with the potential to defeat cancer, heart disease, and even aging itself. In this inspiring and pioneering work, Dr. Chopra offers us both a fascinating intellectual journey and a deeply moving chronicle of hope and healing.
In a highly readable manner, Dr. Chopra shows the relevance and wisdom of a number of the concepts of the Ayurveda to a modern systems/information theory of health and illness as exemplified by the rapidly developing field of psychoneuroimmunology. - George Freeman Solomon, M.D., professor of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences, University of California, Los Angeles

Reviews - rated 4/5 based on customer reviews
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.
