"A splendid history of mind-body medicine...a book that desperately needed to be written." ―Jerome Groopman, New York Times

Is stress a deadly disease on the rise in modern society? Can mind-body practices from the East help us become well? When it comes to healing, we believe we must look beyond doctors and drugs; we must look within ourselves. Faith, relationships, and attitude matter.

But why do we believe such things? From psychoanalysis to the placebo effect to meditation, this vibrant cultural history describes mind-body healing as rooted in a patchwork of stories, allowing us to make new sense of our suffering and to rationalize new treatments and lifestyles.

As a psychologist I found this book to be exceptionally informative and detailed regarding the historical roots of our current Western views of mind-body medicine. Despite other reviewers' comments stating that it was difficult to read or too heavy, I found the writing style to be exceptionally interesting, engaging, and sufficiently detailed to provide a very thorough history of the specific roots on which the author chose to focus. This is not the kind of subject that can be effectively covered in any less technical terms (I found very few overly technical terms myself) and with fewer "stories". It was well-organized and the history (despite being from disparate quadrants) flowed nicely. I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot.

This is a marvelous overview of the history mind/body healing. It is fascinating to see how opinions and prevailing wisdom has changed over the years. Also inspiring to imagine the potential of the body to be healed by some mechanism of belief. Great read.

Not an easy book to read, The Cure Within is nonetheless the best summary of the state of mind-body medicine around. The author is a prodigious researcher, and brings the mind of a scientist and the heart of a historian to the subject matter; she reveals how we got to our present attitude toward mind-body medicine and in the process, connects the dots from ancient times to today.

However, the book is so dense with information that after finishing it, I felt forced to read it through once more, and in doing so, picked up a great deal more than I had the first time. It's also written in a monotone, as though the author were delivering it in one long, record-breaking breath. And yet, perhaps, that might have been wise, as the style deflects any sense of sensationalism or silliness in a subject that often attracts just that from other writers.

All in all, there are few books out there that display this kind of interdisciplinary wisdom and insightful commentary. However, as other reviewers have pointed out, she is careful to avoid a point of view; would she herself prefer acupuncture to anesthesia? Would she practice meditiation or take a valium? You have to guess.

This book was well written and informative. The fact of going back in history to find the origins of mine body medicine is a novel and excellent idea.

Informative view of how the mind and body work together to accomplish some amazing things. Very well researched and written. A good read if you are interested in the mind.

A highly informative tracing of the history of the mind-body inquiry. The historical tracking is easy to follow with succinct treatment of the major contributors. Balanced treatment.

too much rambling
This is one of the best researched books I have ever read and the writer needs to be congratulated on a job well done.
I can see this book helping a lot of people in the future and look forward to her next publication. Roger
