Publisher's Summary

Herbert Benson, M.D., explores the true intersection and connections between objective sciences and the mystifying power of the human spirit. He tells how affirming beliefs, particularly belief in a higher power, makes a critical contribution to our physical health. In essence, Dr. Benson's messages is that our bodies are wired for God.
A Harvard physician, Dr. Benson documents that when people call upon faith, they activate neurologic pathways for self-healing, and he shows how you, along with a caring physician or healer, can tap into your reservoir of "remembered wellness" to affect and cure 60 to 90 percent of medical complaints. Dr. Benson does not dismiss modern health care. Instead, he proposes practical ways in which patients and the medical community can make faith an integral part of it.
Along Timeless Healing's journey of intellectual enlightenment, Dr. Benson creates a wonderful web of personal anecdotes, scientific research, social commentary, and spiritual wisdom that outlines a life-transforming and society-changing blueprint for healing.

Makes Great Sense

Where does Timeless Healing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I greatly appreciated Timeless Healing as it was a confirmation of some of the things I already knew about mind over matter. As an advanced practice nurse, I have a strong belief in what we can do with our own will to overcome and ward off illness and maintain wellness. It was also affirming to hear Dr. Benson's perspective on how we are wired to seek God.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Timeless Healing?

I already apply some of the principles of this book to my life, but will be taking it to a new level and have a new and broader perspective on mind over matter or what Dr. Benson refers to as "remembered wellness"

Any additional comments?

The only concern I have is only the abridged version is available on audio so I feel compelled to purchase the actual hard copy book in order to see what I've missed.
