內容簡介

一絲不苟,調查心靈如何能幫助醫治我們的身體。主流醫學和替代療法也許能雙管齊下,讓患者擁有更好的治療方式。—Wall Street Journal
紐約時報暢銷書

儘管醫學進步,科學發達,但你發現了嗎,疾病越來越怪,病人越來越多,於是,更多人開始尋找正統醫學以外的方法幫助,所謂alternative treatment另類療法,然而,這些方法是否全部都是無稽之談或只是迷信?意念又會否對治病有幫助?這些就是Jo Marchant在本書以「嚴謹的懷疑態度」探討的問題。

思維具有潛移默化身體,令人驚訝的自癒能力。壓力或焦慮會損害我們的健康,這是已被確認且公開的事實,於是新時代大師與另一派的精神治療師,強調與正名,我們的思想、情感和信念可以緩解疼痛,傷口癒合,抵禦感染和心臟疾病,甚至延緩愛滋病和某些癌症的進展。

屢獲殊榮的科普作家Jo Marchant周遊世界,訪談在這個新領域有深入研究的醫生、親身經驗的患者和研究人員,發現與印證一些坊間的流傳:靜心是能夠防止憂鬱症和老年癡呆症?手術後的病人透過誰來照顧能夠恢復得更快?使用薰衣草香味,對於免疫系統的功能? 

借鑒了最新的研究,Jo Marchant探索心靈癒合的巨大潛力,解釋如何能夠藉助本書調查結果,適切地運用在自己的生活,也客觀地勾畫出它的局限性,全書以科學精神為基礎,充滿人性關懷的文字,不偏不倚,條理分明,解釋這個充滿許多迷思,卻又令人嚮往的心靈醫學系統。

A rigorous, skeptical, deeply reported look at the new science behind the mind's surprising ability to heal the body

Have you ever felt a surge of adrenaline after narrowly avoiding an accident? Salivated at the sight (or thought) of a sour lemon? Felt turned on just from hearing your partner's voice? If so, then you've experienced how dramatically the workings of your mind can affect your body. 

Yet while we accept that stress or anxiety can damage our health, the idea of "healing thoughts" was long ago hijacked by New Age gurus and spiritual healers. Recently, however, serious scientists from a range of fields have been uncovering evidence that our thoughts, emotions and beliefs can ease pain, heal wounds, fend off infection and heart disease and even slow the progression of AIDS and some cancers.

In Cure, award-winning science writer Jo Marchant travels the world to meet the physicians, patients and researchers on the cutting edge of this new world of medicine. We learn how meditation protects against depression and dementia, how social connections increase life expectancy and how patients who feel cared for recover from surgery faster. We meet Iraq war veterans who are using a virtual arctic world to treat their burns and children whose ADHD is kept under control with half the normal dose of medication. We watch as a transplant patient uses the smell of lavender to calm his hostile immune system and an Olympic runner shaves vital seconds off his time through mind-power alone. 

Drawing on the very latest research, Marchant explores the vast potential of the mind's ability to heal, lays out its limitations and explains how we can make use of the findings in our own lives. With clarity and compassion, Cure points the way towards a system of medicine that treats us not simply as bodies but as human beings.
