With it comes a new model of the human body and potential, and a new model of healthcare in which self-care is central. Empowered Care is a resource book for this new medical field. It presents the background and history, the impressive research, and it's most successful practices. The book looks into the exciting science underlying a new model of the human body, and it offers a new model of illness and healing.
Chapters include: Mind-Body Medicine Comes of Age; Mind-Based Healing in the United States; Meditation Research; A New Model of the Human Body; A New Model of Healing; Empowering Self-Care Methods; New Possibilities.
