Great book, filled with miraculous stories of healing in cultures that differ from ours, I believe it is definite proof, and if not, it's superb evidence, that belief has a lot to do with everything, especially healing your own body. Wonderful documentation, references and presentation.
This fascinating book, written by Larry Dossey, MD, examines the existing research on the effect of healing prayer on health. The conclusion -- prayer heals.

Dr. Dossey is the former Chief of Staff of Humana Medical City in Dallas TX and spent years firmly believing in strict science and traditional Western medicine as the tools for healing. While coming to grips with his own spiritual life, Dossey discovered that prayer does indeed compliment tradition medicine and sometimes heals.

An interesting read that delves into the science of medicine and the power of prayer and How both can coexist.
Jaw-dropping and extremely important. This is NOT a self-help book, it's a wise, rigorous, empirical look at prayer and healing. It profoundly altered my understanding of spirituality, the mind, and the laws of nature. Very highly recommended!
Interesting. Looks at possible links between health and prayer (sometimes not taking all variables into consideration, bit still interesting.)

That the mind is non local and much of what we believe about healing is baloney. This book changed my life. And few have!
