A rigorous, skeptical, deeply reported look at the new science behind the mind's surprising ability to heal the body.Have you ever felt a surge of adrenaline after narrowly avoiding an accident? Salivated at the sight (or thought) of a sour lemon? Felt turned on just from hearing your partner's voice? If so, then you've experienced how dramatically the workings of your mind can affect your body. Yet while we accept that stress or anxiety can damage our health, the idea of "healing thoughts" was long ago hijacked by New Age gurus and spiritual healers. Recently, however, serious scientists from a range of fields have been uncovering evidence that our thoughts, emotions and beliefs can ease pain, heal wounds, fend off infection and heart disease and even slow the progression of AIDS and some cancers.In Cure, award-winning science writer Jo Marchant travels the world to meet the physicians, patients and researchers on the cutting edge of this new world of medicine. We learn how meditation protects against depression and dementia, how social connections increase life expectancy and how patients who feel cared for recover from surgery faster. We meet Iraq war veterans who are using a virtual arctic world to treat their burns and children whose ADHD is kept under control with half the normal dose of medication. We watch as a transplant patient uses the smell of lavender to calm his hostile immune system and an Olympic runner shaves vital seconds off his time through mind-power alone. Drawing on the very latest research, Marchant explores the vast potential of the mind's ability to heal, lays out its limitations and explains how we can make use of the findings in our own lives. With clarity and compassion, Cure points the way towards a system of medicine that treats us not simply as bodies but as human beings.A New York Times BestsellerFinalist for the Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book PrizeLonglisted for the Wellcome Book Prize

Anyone who has experienced the sensation of the room spinning around or the lightheadedness that signals an impending faint knows how bad it feels to be dizzy. Almost any medical condition can cause dizziness, but the most common include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, transient drops in blood pressure, migraine, and anxiety. Inner ear disorders that cause dizziness are often associated with abnormal eye movements―in fact, it’s possible to diagnose an acute inner ear infection in five seconds, just by looking at a person’s eyes. In Dizziness, Drs. Gregory T. Whitman and Robert W. Baloh explore the different conditions that can cause dizziness, describe the types of dizziness they see most frequently, and explain what people with dizziness can do to feel better.A detailed look at one of the most common―and complex―medical complaints, Dizziness distills Drs. Whitman and Baloh’s six decades of combined experience into a short and practical guide. Packed with useful tips on diagnosis and treatment, Dizziness reveals how top doctors analyze dizziness, including the problems with balance and walking that go along with it. The book also explains the importance of overcoming dizziness and describes what people who are dizzy can do to get an accurate diagnosis.Combining background on specific forms of dizziness with descriptions of optimal treatments for each one, Dizziness covers everything from conditions that cause dizziness when a person changes position (such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and orthostatic hypotension) to conditions that cause dizzy spells without warning or trigger (such as Ménière’s disease and migraine-associated dizziness). The book explores bouts of dizziness that last for days, as well as constant dizziness that lasts for weeks, months, or even years. Enhanced with patient stories and rounded out by a glossary of terms and an appendix describing home exercises, this is the go-to book for anyone who struggles with dizziness.
