Product description

In The Brain's Way of Healing, Norman Doidge, the bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself, presents astounding discoveries in the brain's healing power. For centuries it was believed that the price paid for the brain's complexity was its inability to recover from damage or illness. Norman Doidge's The Brain's Way of Healing turns this belief on its head, and explains that this very sophistication is the source of a unique kind of healing. Doidge shows the latest advances in neuroplasticity, the discovery that the brain can change its structure and function in response to mental experience. He describes natural, non-invasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us - light, sound, vibration, movement - which pass through our senses and our bodies to awaken the brain's own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. The Brain's Way of Healing discusses a series of near-miracle recoveries: patients told they would never improve have years of chronic pain alleviated or damage from debilitating strokes undone, and symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, brain injury, autism or learning disorders are reversed. It also shows how the risk of dementia can be lowered by 60 per cent with easy-to-follow instructions. Through stories that present cutting-edge science with practical real-world applications, Doidge illustrates the principles of neuroplastic healing that we can all use to improve our brain's performance and health. Norman Doidge, M.D., is a psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, and New York Times bestselling author. His book The Brain That Changes Itself was chosen by the Dana Foundation's journal Cerebrum as the best general book ever written on the brain. He is on the faculty of the University of Toronto's Department of Psychiatry as well as the Research Faculty at Columbia University's Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research in New York City. He lives in Toronto.
