Cured

The Power of Our Immune System and the Mind-Body Connection




A pioneering Harvard psychiatrist uncovers the lost connections between the mind, body and immune system

When it comes to understanding the connection between our mental and physical health, we should be looking at the exceptions, not the rules.

Dr Jeff Rediger, a world-leading Harvard psychiatrist, has spent the last fifteen years studying thousands of individuals from around the world, examining the stories behind extraordinary cases of recovery from terminal illness.

Observing the common denominators of people who have beaten the odds, Dr Rediger reveals the immense power of our immune system and unlocks the secrets of the mind-body connection. In Cured, he explains the vital role that nutrition plays in boosting our immunity and fighting off disease, and he also outlines how stress, trauma and identity affect our physical health.

In analysing the remarkable science of recovery, Dr Rediger reveals the power of our mind to heal our body and shows us the keys to good health.

Praise for Cured

Cured is a rare glimpse into the mysteries of human health and disease. Why do some people with incurable disease suddenly heal? In an era of incurable chronic diseases causing 60% of all deaths worldwide, this book provides one potential way out.

Seasoned with the author's penetrating insights about healing, clearly articulated science and illuminating case histories, Cured opens genuine vistas of transforming illness into health even in the face of diagnoses conventional medical thinking habitually dismisses as hopeless

An amazing piece of work ... Cured is packed with cutting-edge science and powerful, eye-opening real life case studies. Dr Jeff Rediger offers ground-breaking and scientifically-backed evidence of how trauma can have long-lasting effects on our bodies. This is a hopeful tale of how through resilience and meaningful lifestyle adjustments even the most serious of cases can be redeemed. Timely and beautifully written ... Everyone should read this book.

Bessel van der Kolk, author of 'The Body Keeps the Score'

Cured is one of the most important books I've ever read. Dr Rediger presents dozens of case studies of people who defied the odds, many making complete recoveries even after being told to go home and get their affairs in order. In this book, he shows us why they recovered but he also gives us insights into how we, too, can tap into this amazing curative and regenerative power of the human body. This is a deeply inspiring book. I could hardly put it down.

David R Hamilton, PhD, author of 'How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body'

Fascinating bioscience on the phenomenon of spontaneous healing...[Cured] doubles as a pragmatic guide to improving general health...[and the author's] expert analysis drives much of this intriguing volume... Arrestingly written and chockablock with practical, empowering medical information, this thought-provoking and convincing chronicle of disease avoidance and 'remarkable recovery' will give even skeptics something to ponder.

Kirkus Reviews

The reversal of chronic illness or remission is now well documented. The mechanism in all cases seems to be restoration of homeostasis and self regulation, along with reduction of chronic inflammation. Dr. Rediger's book is an excellent guide to self healing
