Quantum Healing – Exploring The Frontiers Of Mind-Body Medicine by Deepak Chopra, M.D. is fascinating foray into the fusion of the mind and the body in respect to the healing possibilities to be had.

Chopra sifts through some studies, as well as uses examples known to him to showcase that the power of the mind is vital in healing.  In fact, in some cases it could be said to be the main driver in someone’s ability to heal.

Although this particular book was published over two decades ago, the information still holds as true now as it did back then.  Serendipitously, more and more studies have come about showing the inherent link between the mind and body and how that can play a crucial role in the art of healing.

Unfortunately, the opposite is also true.  While the author doesn’t discuss this, it has been discussed elsewhere however.  Individuals that allow their thoughts to err into more detrimental  states can set themselves up for failure at the outset.  Or sometimes, doctors will tell people that “they can’t be cured” as happens to so many, and people run with those beliefs [and they are beliefs, because this has been proven wrong a lot more than people realize, and am a living example of this myself] all the way beyond the cliff’s edge.  But don’t take my word for it.  Do your own research.

One of my favorite parts of the book, although not explored at length, was delving into the power of meditation.  As some of you may know, meditation has outstanding healing powers, and it has helped me in conquering disease.  It wasn’t used by itself however, but it was an integral component in my healing repertoire and will always will be part of my life.  Let’s digress, though.

In its totality, the book was good, but not great.  If you’ve researched this subject the book won’t have a lot that you probably won’t know, or have already come to the conclusion too yourself.  If you haven’t however, this book features information that should be pondered deeply by society, for its implications spawn at warp speed and its ramifications are deep in scope.

As a side note, a new revised and updated version is available.  Although haven’t read it myself, it might be a decent jump-off point for individuals seeking additional information.

Regardless, please keep in mind, the thoughts we ultimately fill our minds with ultimately may grow into healing, or disease if we are not careful.

    1. Excellent question. In fact, just had a few questions on my FB from some friends very similar to this so will boil down for you as best as possible. While this particular book does have some physics information in it, it isn’t one of the best ones read by myself. There’s actually quite a few that would recommend myself. In fact, read these books years ago, just haven’t done the reviews for those. In any case, if you’re looking for similar books, here are some:

      The Intention Experiment by Lynne McTaggart:

      https://www.amazon.com/Intention-Experiment-Using-Thoughts-Change/dp/0743276965/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1481646286&sr=8-1&keywords=the+intention+experiment+by+lynne+mctaggart

      She catalogs information from leading scientists from around the world as she explores the science of intention. Similarly, McTaggart has two other books which are:

      The Field
      https://www.amazon.com/Field-Quest-Secret-Force-Universe/dp/006143518X/ref=pd_sim_14_1?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=006143518X&pd_rd_r=JH8HTQ60306HWD06EMNA&pd_rd_w=KxUyC&pd_rd_wg=zU08j&psc=1&refRID=JH8HTQ60306HWD06EMNA

      And The Bond
      https://www.amazon.com/Bond-How-Your-Falling-Down-World/dp/1439157952/ref=pd_sim_14_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1439157952&pd_rd_r=JH8HTQ60306HWD06EMNA&pd_rd_w=KxUyC&pd_rd_wg=zU08j&psc=1&refRID=JH8HTQ60306HWD06EMNA

      The Bond isn’t as groundbreaking, and although she does cover new information, if you’re read the other books, you’ll know what you’re getting. Its not that the information isn’t useful, its just that once you read so many experiments you kind of know what you’re getting.

    2. The book Entangled minds by Dean Radin Ph.D. and his book is:

      https://www.amazon.com/Entangled-Minds-Extrasensory-Experiences-Quantum/dp/1416516778/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1481646546&sr=1-1&keywords=entangled+minds

      It deals more with the paranormal, but all studied from the POV of scientists. This also delves into our quantum reality and the nature of it.

      Also, there’s the books by microbiologist Bruce Lipton Ph.D. who authored the books:

      https://www.amazon.com/Biology-Belief-10th-Anniversary-Consciousness/dp/140195247X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1481646687&sr=1-1&keywords=bruce+lipton+the+biology+of+belief

      https://www.amazon.com/Honeymoon-Effect-Science-Creating-Heaven/dp/1401923895/ref=pd_sim_14_1?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1401923895&pd_rd_r=BETZ5X4GK5RPK5NWT6S7&pd_rd_w=cttEM&pd_rd_wg=3HMwu&psc=1&refRID=BETZ5X4GK5RPK5NWT6S7

      Both cover similar concepts as the one reviewed, but in a different manner.

      If had to recommend one, it would be the Biology of Belief, as that one has more studies/data mentioned than the Honeymoon effect, but they cover consciousness nonetheless.

      If you also want, there’s also presentations by Bruce Lipton on youtube. That’s a safe way to go if you’re interested.

      Sorry this is so long, but am attempting to be as through as possible but am cramped for time. Hope those six or so book recommendations help. By the way, by no means am saying you need to believe anything. In fact, the fact that you’re asking about it shows you’re of an inquiring mind, which is exactly the type of person that’s going to do their own research, which is pretty neat. Its the route taken by myself and its in part the reason why this blog runs, because of all the things that are out there that are unknown to us. Anyways, hope that helps! If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate. Do take care and have a great day.

    3. And if you’re feeling REALLY brave, there’s retired physicist Tom Campbell whose put out many presentations/talks on youtube regarding his MBT which is his theory of reality that unifies Physics/Metaphysics/Consciousness and everything else. Its helped me grasp reality from a much more lucid perspective and have learned a lot.

      The first few minutes are just getting the presentation ready which is why they’re speaking french. He’ll talk in English however.

      If you’re most left brained, then would recommend the books. If you’re right brain, most of his videos tackle the same concepts from that POV. And if you’re fully open minded would probably delve into both. Also am recommending the video because its easy for you to listen, and if its not your cup of tea you can pass on it without having to spend any money. Hope that helps.

    1. Excellent question. You know, have tried making one nigh a year ago when first launching the blog, but for the life of me it hasn’t worked \= Had one on my previous wordpress, but not sure why another page isn’t working. Tried making several too, because wanted one to be a page for blogrolls and one for suggested books but nothing’s work. Perhaps will try and put a new one.

    2. You know, now I remember why it didn’t work. I did in fact publish one, but it won’t show as a separate page. For instance, just published a test page post right now that’s called “About me” with a ‘testing testing’ under the content box. If you search for it, it shows. But otherwise it doesn’t. That’s pretty useless. Its probably part of how this wordpress them operates. Otherwise not sure why it doesn’t work. In any case, my research interests are as eclectic as can be as you may have seen from the range of topics. Have always felt that the best thing we can do as individuals is teach ourselves and become autodidacts about life in general [or specific subjects for that matter], since it seems we learn more that way, especially if we put significant effort into it, than we ever could in public schooling. That’s one of the main reasons I love reading books. Would say a lot more, but this could go in myriad directions. Feel free to ask me any questions if need be.
