Description

Heal yourself from the inside out

Our immune systems can no longer be taken for granted. Current trends in public healthcare are disturbing: our increased air travel allows newly mutated bacteria and viruses to spread across the globe, antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria outstrip the new drugs that are meant to fight them, deaths due to hospital-acquired infections are increasing, and the childhood vaccinations of our aging population are losing their effectiveness. Now more than ever, our well-being is at a dangerous crossroad.

But there is hope, and the solution lies within ourselves. The Healing Self is the new breakthrough book in self-care by bestselling author and leader in integrative medicine Deepak Chopra and Harvard neuroscientist Rudolph E Tanzi. They argue that the brain possesses its own lymphatic system, meaning it is also tied into the body's general immune system.

Based on this brand new discovery, they offer new ways of increasing the body's immune system by stimulating the brain and our genes, and through this they help us fight off illness and disease. Combined with new facts about the gut microbiome and lifestyle changes, diet and stress reduction, there is no doubt that this ground-breaking work will have an important effect on your immune system.

As Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi powerfully show, our first line of healing lies inside us, and the choices we make today are crucial to lifelong wellness." -- Arianna Huffington, Founder and CEO of Thrive Global "The Healing Self, as revealed by Chopra and Tanzi, is a natural extension of the immunity and inflammation that can be managed by the concrete approach of these seasoned authors." -- Mehmet Oz,Professor Surgery, NYP-Columbia University "Stress unequivocally affects the immune system and susceptibility to diseases. In The Healing Self, Chopra and Tanzi provide both a holistic and scientific perspective to understand this complex relationship and promote health." -- Eric J.
