Cured is one of the most important books I've ever read. Dr Rediger presents dozens of case studies of people who defied the odds, many making complete recoveries even after being told to go home and get their affairs in order. In this book, he shows us why they recovered but he also gives us insights into how we, too, can tap into this amazing curative and regenerative power of the human body. This is a deeply inspiring book. I could hardly put it down. * David R Hamilton, PhD, author of 'How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body' *
The reversal of chronic illness or remission is now well documented. The mechanism in all cases seems to be restoration of homeostasis and self regulation, along with reduction of chronic inflammation.
