This week the beloved and renowned Dr. Bernie Siegel returns as our guest. “Bernie,” as he prefers to be called, retired from general and pediatric surgical practice in 1989 and has since dedicated himself to humanizing the medical establishment’s approach to patients and empowering patients to induce their own healing.
This week he is here to discuss his new book, “The Art of Healing.“ In this long-awaited follow-up to Love, Medicine & Miracles, he demonstrates how science and spirituality interact — and how one can tap the body’s potential to heal. After studying the use of crayon drawings by patients facing life-threatening disease, Bernie founded Exceptional Cancer Patients to facilitate self-induced healings, which were often called miraculous. Bernie realized our bodies actually want to heal, and we can aid this innate propensity through what are currently seen as unconventional practices, including drawing, visualization, dreams, love, and laughter. Readers will learn how to use these practices to help with everything from diagnosing and understanding their illness to making the correct treatment decisions to sharing experiences with loved ones and caregivers. Filled with inspiring true stories and suggestions for traveling on a healing journey, The Art of Healing offers hands-on, patient-proven techniques that can create miracles.
