9780062510228: Healing Words: Power of Prayer and the Practice of Medicine

In an engaging, controversial style, physician, popular lecturer, "recovering Baptist" and path breaker Larry Dossey shares the latest evidence linking prayer, healing and medicine. Through examples and anecdotes Dossey shows how prayer complements, but doesn't take the place of good medicine, he explores which methods of prayer show the greatest potential for healing, presents evidence that patients' and doctors' belief in a treatment increases its efficacy, and explains that discoveries in modern physics which allow us to integrate the spiritual and the scientific and make the power of prayer provable in the lab.
