Every day modern medicine announces the arrival of yet another "wonder drug" or "miracle procedure" to a world increasingly wary of expensive high-tech cures. Drugs, transplants, and surgery don't work for 90 percent of our aches and pains. Dr. Larry Dossey, long hailed as one of the founding fathers of mind-body medicine, directs our attention to simple sources of healing that have been available for centuries, from the power of optimism, the surprising usefulness of dirt and bugs, and even to the benefits of doing nothing. "The bottom line: you can do all the physical stuff that we hear so much about, but if you neglect the extraordinary healing power ofr ordinary things you are fighting with one hand tied behind your back." Dr. Dossey reminds us that what we happen to think about our health is one of the best predictors of longevity. (hosted by Michael Toms)
