`We do have biological `live' and `die' mechanisms within us ... the state of mind changes the state of the body by working through the central nervous system, the endocrine system and the immune system. Exceptional patients manifest the will to live in its most potent form...' These are lessons learned about self-healing, written by a doctor who has watched `terminal' patients take control of their illnesses and live. Through the healing power of love, patients who have come under Dr Siegel's care have learned to change, enrich and prolong their lives beyond medical expectation. Dr Siegel's message is that, although none of us know when illness will strike us or those we love, we can do something about it.
