Publisher's Summary

Combining the best current medical knowledge with a new approach grounded in integrative medicine, Chopra and Tanzi offer a groundbreaking new model of healing and the healing system, one of the main mysteries in the mind-body connection.

The Healing Self is a breakthrough audiobook in self-care for a wide audience. Immunity - the body's ability to ward off disease - can no longer be taken for granted. Current trends in the public health are disturbing. From increased jet travel, allowing newly mutated bacteria and viruses to have a worldwide reach, to MRSA and other antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria that are outstripping new drugs to fight them, to an increase in deaths from hospital-acquired infections, to an aging population whose childhood vaccinations are losing their effectiveness, our well-being is at a dangerous crossroads.

Yet Chopra and Tanzi see hope and offer new ways of increasing the body's immune system by stimulating the brain, our genes, helping to reduce inflammation in the body and increase our capacities to fight off illness and disease. In the brain, it has been long believed that only the innate immune system is at work. However, the recent exciting discovery that the brain possesses a lymphatic system means that it is also tied into adaptive immune system (antibodies, T- and B-cells, etc.). This knowledge can be used together with new facts about the gut microbiome to help reduce neuro-inflammation with changes in lifestyle, diet, and stress reduction.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Audio - The Healing Self

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This is an audio book, but there is a test to take, which is not easy when one is listening. The reader referred to a PDF file that should have come with the audio version, but I do not see that.

If you’ve listened to books by Deepak Chopra M.D. and Rudolph E. Tanzi Ph.D. before, how does this one compare?

Yes - no comparison

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The problem was not with the narrator

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

no

Any additional comments?

I believe when one purchases an audio book from Audible, and a Kindle Version is also available, both should be downloaded. I have a Kindle, and would like to sync them, because this book does have whispersync, but I do not want to pay for the Kindle version in addition to this purchase.

Thank you Tanzi, Thank you Chopra

Beautifully written, detailed work of healing.

Inspiring and liberating in its simple scientifically backed and heartfelt healing message: healing is something each of us is capable of doing BEFORE, DURING and AFTER the symptoms afflict us.

Read this book to understand the capacity we all have to support our doctors as partners in managing our lives and the lives of those we love.

Tanzi and Chopra are a bridge between the spiritual/meditative approaches to healing and the science based medical approach.

May you both live long and continue your contribution to the world:)!🙏

Great Advice

Would you consider the audio edition of The Healing Self to be better than the print version?

No, the printed version would be more helpful due to the resources I would like to access easily in future.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Healing Self?

The discussion of telomeres, this was new info for me.

LIFE CHANGING

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, absolutely... and I have already recommended to many! This book is empowering...backed by science. Knowledge is power, and this book brings that point home on a very personal level for all.

What did you like best about this story?

It's empowering.... to be informed of the changes one can make to positively affect every facet of their liife. Not just the "what to do", but the "why/how it works".

Have you listened to any of Shishir Kurup’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but due to the medical science nature of the content, it requires focus while listening.
It's a lot to absorb and if I played it when there were distractions, I found myself rewinding often to relisten. At that point, I knew it was better to stop and resume later when I wouldn't miss out on any of it!
