Deepak Chopra, Rudolph E. Tanzi

A Revolutionary Plan to Supercharge Your Immunity and Stay Well for Life

Combining the best current medical knowledge with a new approach grounded in integrative medicine, Chopra and Tanzi offer a groundbreaking new model of healing and the healing system, one of the main mysteries in the mind-body connection.

The Healing Self is a breakthrough book in self-care for a wide audience. Immunitythe body's ability to ward off diseasecan no longer be taken for granted. From increased jet travel, allowing new mutated bacteria and viruses to have a worldwide reach, to MERSA and other antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria that are outstripping new drugs to fight them, to an increase in deaths from hospital-acquired infections, to an aging population whose childhood vaccinations are losing their effectiveness, our well-being is at a dangerous crossroads.

Yet, Chopra and Tanzi, see hope and offer news ways of increasing the body's immune system by stimulating the brain and our genes, helping to reduce inflammation in the body and increasing our capacities to fight off illness and disease. In the brain, it has long believed that only the innate immune system is at work. However, the recent exciting discovery that the brain possesses a lymphatic system means that it is also tied into adaptive immune system (antibodies, T- and B-cells, etc). This knowledge can be used together with new facts about the gut microbiome to help reduce neuro-inflammation with changes in lifestyle, diet, and stress reduction.

Deepak Chopra is a pioneer of integrative medicine and the author of 80 books published in 43 languages. Many have been New York Times bestsellers. Rudolph E. Tanzi is the Joseph and Rose Kennedy Professor of Neurology at Harvard University and director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital.
