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 five part 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?
With the incisive style that has made Bill Moyers's skills as an Interviewer legendary and the dynamic interplay of the many patients and professionals interviewed, Healing and the Mind is a documentary series destined to influence how millions think about sickness and health.
