Publisher's Summary

How do our thoughts and emotions affect our health? Are our bodies and minds distinct from one another or do they function together as parts of an interconnected system? Candace Pert - a neuroscientist whose extraordinary career began with her 1972 discovery of the opiate receptor - provides startling and decisive answers to these and other challenging questions that scientists and philosophers have pondered for centuries. From explaining the scientific basis of popular wisdom and phenomena like "gut feelings" to making comprehensible recent discoveries in cancer and AIDS research, Molecules of Emotion is an intellectual adventure of the highest order.


What the Critics Say

"Finally, here is a Western scientist who has done the work to explain the unity of mind and matter, body and soul." (Deepak Chopra)

Unbelievable Discoveries

I was amazed to find out how much autonomy the body and it's various systems have and how they are affected by our very thoughts...much like our appetites. This could be ground-breaking self-healing or self-improving information for people who carry a lot of stress in their lives. It certainly leaves you with a different perspective about who you and your body are and how you both function together.
