I was not prepared for the absolutely amazing and almost unbelievable procedures and outcomes as described in this book. It has really been a mind expanding experience reading it and I would thoroughly recommend it. I have not yet finished the book but am so far left with a feeling of bewilderment that these procedures are not more widely carried out. The use of the Brain to put the healing process into action, rather than surgery, would seem to me to be the option of choice. You will never regret buy this book.

'This is a book of miracles. Fascinating... An absorbing compendium of unlikely recoveries from physical and mental ailments offers evidence that the brain can heal... brings Oliver Sacks to mind' Lisa Appignanesi, Observer
The Brain's Way of Healing explores the astonishing advances in the discovery of neuroplasticity, showing that the brain has its own unique way of healing, only recently uncovered. Norman Doidge discusses a series of remarkable recoveries: patients told they would never improve have years of chronic pain alleviated or damage from debilitating strokes undone, and symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, brain injury, autism or learning disorders are reversed. He also shows how the risk of dementia can be lowered by 60%. Using stories to present cutting-edge science, Doidge illustrates principles that everyone can apply to improve their brain's performance.
