Ancient medical science told us our minds and bodies are one. So did philosophers of old. Now modern science and new research are helping us to understand these connections. In Healing and the Mind
, Bill Moyers talks with physicians, scientists, therapists, and patients - people who are taking a new look at the meaning of sickness and health. In a series of fascinating and provocative interviews, he discusses their search for answers to perplexing questions: how do emotions translate into chemicals in our bodies? How do thoughts and feelings influence health? How can we collaborate with our bodies to encourage healing? From small private clinics to large public hospitals, from the People's Republic of China to a Massachusetts medical center, Healing and the Mind
looks at modern medicine and Western practices. This documentary will influence the way you think about sickness and health.
