Cure (2016)

by Jo Marchant
“Cure is a cautious, scrupulous investigation of how the brain can help heal our bodies. It is also an important look at the flip side of this coin, which is how brains damaged by stress may make bodies succumb to physical illness or accelerated aging…Cure points a way toward a future in which the two camps [mainstream medicine and alternative therapies] might work together. After all, any medicine that makes a patient better, whether conventional, alternative, or placebo, is simply medicine.”  Wall Street Jouurnal

This a a fascinating, thought-provoking book written by a woman with a Ph.D. in medical microbiology and genetics.
