Summary

People have the potential to heal themselves and each other. Dr. Daniel Benor, a wholistic psychiatrist, explains how mind-body and body-mind interactions promote health or cause illness. Clear and concise explanations of a large body of research, clinical examples, and a variety of theory explain healing through complementary/alternative medicine. Dr. Benor reviews research-supporting claims that complementary/alternative therapies and bioenergy therapies are potent and effective treatments.
