    A JOURNEY INTO THE SCIENCE OF
    MIND OVER BODY


    by Jo Marchant


    The idea of "healing thoughts" has long been suspect, but scientists have recently uncovered evidence that our minds have the power to ease pain, fight off infections and heart disease and even slow the progression of AIDS and some canders. In Cure, award-winning writer Jo Marchant travels the world to meet the physicians, patients and researchers on the cutting edge of this new world of medicine. Drawing on the very latest research, she lays out the vast potential of our mind's ability to heal and explains, with clarity and compassion, how we can use these findings in our own lives.

    "The studies are irresistible, and they come in an almost infinite variety."
    —New York Times

    "A well-researched page-turner... raises questions about the role of culture, envieronment and neurochemistry in our responses to treatment—and may very well lead to widespread changes in the ways we practice medicine."
    —Susannah Cahalan, New York Post

    "Writing with simplicity, clarity and style, and covering an enormous range of material, [Marchant} surveys with grace what we think we know, and what we would like to know, about the mysterious and troubling relationship between our minds and our bodies."
    —The Guardian
