Spontaneous Healing is a 72-minute lecture given by Dr. Andrew Weil based on his best-selling book. Using illustrative material from case histories and his travels around the world, the author presents his vision of integrative medicine which capitalizes on the body's innate healing potential. Here the emphasis is on health and not disease.
Dr. Weil reports on the value of medicinal plants and the importance of mind/body interactions. These approaches are less expensive and less invasive than the practices of conventional medicine. And they seem to work well on allergies, severe trauma, and chronic degenerative diseases. Dr. Weil peppers this lecture with practical tips on how individuals can tap into the body's innate ability to heal itself. He ends with a prophetic vision of physicians as teachers and resource people who model health for us.
