Staff Recommendation: Cure is a fascinating and balanced book exploring the impact of the mind on the body’s health. Marchant considers global research from a wide spectrum of conditions and behaviours, with insights into the results and possibilities for the future of healthcare. Marchant also shows the resistance to change from pharmaceutical companies and other influential voices. She explains the expensive and widespread use of unnecessary procedures and potent medications, and meets innovators pioneering less invasive, more individually appropriate care. Cure will give you a greater understanding and appreciation of the connections between your mind, body and society. It deserves to be an influential book.
