Anyone who's ever had a serious illness has considered the possibilities of spiritual, energy, or faith healing. We've all heard stories about miraculous recoveries and of people who have the gift of healing. Explore the enigma of spiritual healing and peer into the laboratories and hospitals where researchers are studying this phenomenon in How People Heal, a compelling and comprehensive exploration of the world of healing. Journalist Diane Goldner began her investigation as a skeptical reporter, determined to discover whether there was any credence to the stories of faith and healing -- and if so, why it was such a secret. She examined the scientific studies; interviewed doctors, healing practitioners, researchers, and patients; and spent many hours with leading healers, including Barbara Brennan, author of Hands of Light, and Rosalyn Bruyere, a godmother of modern spiritual healing. Through her careful exploration, Goldner slowly became convinced that energy healing produces documentable, and sometimes dramatic, effects. She discovered that this kind of healing is real, teachable, and can change lives for the better -- and that it can play a major role in treating the most devastating illnesses of our time. In How People Heal she tracks how healing works; how it can help with major diseases, including cancer, heart disease, and AIDS; and how it can also alleviate emotional pain and suffering. She also examines how healing is slowly being recognized by leading doctors and hospitals. A landmark book, How People Heal will ultimately help to transform not only our understanding of medicine, but also the basic nature of physical reality and consciousness. It is a powerful call to action for comprehending and using the universal "subtle energy" that plays an important role in our understanding of life.
