This is the companion book to the widely acclaimed "Public Television Series", "The New Medicine", by Emmy Award winning film makers, Ronald Blumer and Muffie Meyer. Their work featured in-depth interviews with physicians and scholars in leading medical schools and clinics across the country. They present the hard scientific evidence behind the fact that our mental state has a direct influence on our physical health. Together, they make a compelling case that physicians must treat the whole person with an illness, not just the illness alone, in order to promote true healing. This book is available in a Black & White or Full-Colour paperback editions.
