Patricia Muehsam, MD, author of BEYOND MEDICINE: A Physician's Revolutionary Prescription for Achieving Absolute Health and Finding Inner Peace
Beyond Medicine offers a path to health and well-being that is extraordinary in its ease and profound in its results — from a pioneer in the synthesis of science, holistic health, and contemporary spirituality
What do health and healing — physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual — really mean? After decades researching this question, Patricia Muehsam, MD, offers a revolutionary new way to think about health. Dr. Muehsam invites readers to travel beyond medicine, to Absolute Health. It involves being, not doing, and it’s available to all of us, in this very moment. In the 1990s, along with other thought leaders, Dr. Muehsam forged new ground that led to the establishment of the Office of Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health. Her original laboratory research at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine investigated distant healing. Before that, she was a young woman who experienced catastrophic illness within her family and in her own life. All of these events inform the groundbreaking approach she presents here. Chapters describe extraordinary experiences of illness and healing that defy conventional thinking; detail the ancient wisdom and the modern science of consciousness; delve into the work of mystics and miracle workers; and offer practical tools for experiencing Absolute Health — tools for navigating being human.
