Description

Why do we feel the way we feel? How do our thoughts and emotions affect our health? Are our bodies and minds distinct from each other or do they function together as part of an interconnected system? In MOLECULES OF EMOTION, neuroscientist Candace Pert provides startling and decisive answers to these long-debated questions, establishing the biomolecular basis for our emotions and explaining these new scientific developments in a clear and accessible way. Her pioneering research on how the chemicals inside us form a dynamic information network, linking mind and body, is not only provocative, it is revolutionary. In her groundbreaking book, Candace Pert offers a new scientific understanding of the power of our minds and our feelings to affect our health and well-being.show more

Review Text

An amazing account of psychoneuroimmunology, demonstrating chemical links between nervous, immune and endocrine systems. Peptides, like endorphin, act as internal messengers potentially connecting mind and body in ways hitherto only dreamed of by those at the far reaches of New-Age thought. Yet Pert is a neuroscientist and this is the compelling story of her own research, of skulduggery in scientific and medical innovation, and ultimately of these amazing information chemicals and their potential effects on health and disease.

Dean Ornish, M.D.author of "Eat More, Weigh Less""Molecules of Emotion" is a highly inspiring story of the search for the biochemical links between consciousness, mind, and body that also weaves in Pert's deeply personal search for truth. Highly recommended!show more
