Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Early on in Quantum Healing, Deepak Chopra asks an interesting question: Why, when your body mends a broken arm, is it not considered a miracle, but when your body rids itself of cancer, it is? Chopra believes the two phenomena spring from the same well, that the body is capable of doing much more than we assume it can. He calls this ability to cure disease from within "quantum healing," and shows how we're all capable of it. He believes intelligence exists everywhere in our bodies, in each of our 50 trillion cells, and that therefore each cell knows how to heal itself. It's a fascinating assertion, one that remains unprovable by science but overwhelmingly true by anecdote.

Review

"Deepak Chopra's book Quantam Healing is MUST reading for every advanced - or should I say evolved - health-care giver. It will widen our horizons, enlarge our comprehension and help us grasp the path we are on into the new century. Exciting, stimulating and highly recommended" -- ELISABETH KUBLER-ROSS, MD. "Dr Chopra writes with almost magical simplicity... this is an important book for anyone interested in maintaining or restoring health" -- MARILYN FERGUSON, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy "In a highly readable manner, Dr Chopra shows the relevance and wisdom of a number of the concepts of Ayurveda to a modern systems/information theory of health and illness as exemplified by the rapidly developing field of psychoneuroimmunology" -- GEORGE FREEMAN SOLOMON, MD, professor of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences, University of California, Los Angeles "Dr Chopra is a fine, evocative writer who maneuvers his way suavely through medicine, physics and metaphysics. For anyone who has awaited a Tao of medicine, this book is a most welcome arrival" The New England Journal of Medicine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Customer Reviews

I didn't want to just see what I had viewed the first time I read the book.
Philip Henderson
We are quantum beings having a dense physical experience...and our perceptions--or shall I say--what we choose to perceive alone dictate our realities.
Lisa A. Romano
And for that alone, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the topic of healing without reservation.
Marie-Jo Fortis

The senses of the wise man obey his mind, his mind obeys his intellect, his intellect obeys his ego, and his ego obeys the Self. -- Katha Upanishad
Thus, within this brief passage, we have the essence of Dr. Deepak Chopra's book Quantum Healing, which successfully seems to shed light for the uninitiated Western reader on the mind/body connection as it relates to medical healing. Although the ideas and techniques he discusses in his book may sound new to us, they are in actuality, as the Doctor demonstrates through his scrupulous tracing of the Western disciplines of neuroscience and physics back to the source of their beginings in the ancient Vedic traditions, as old as time itself. With the precision of an artist meticulously carving a statue, Dr. Chopra proceeds to chip away at Western medicine's physical approach to healing, asserting the point that "when the memory of health returns [it] brings with it enough power to last a lifetime."
These mind-based methods of healing, he tells us, are based upon Ayurveda, the ancient tradition of Indian medicine. The term "Ayurveda" is derived from its two Sanskrit roots, Ayus, meaning "life," and Veda, which can mean either "science" or "knowledge." Combined, the literal meaning becomes "science of life."
In describing how he came up with the term quantum healing, Dr. Chopra relates the moving story of one of his first patients to undergo Ayurvedic treatment. The patient, a woman who had lung cancer, had responded well to the traditional Western treatments which had been combined with Ayurvedic methods.

Format: Paperback
Deepak Chopra is an endocrinologist who starts doubting the supremacy of the western approach to medicine. That doesn't mean he denies his training altogether. But he cannot forget his Indian roots, either. In fact, when he finds out that mind and body are able to cure a person if they work together, or kill her if they work against each other, he returns to the traditional Indian medical approach that they call Ayurveda.

Ayurveda means "the knowledge for long life" in Sanskrit. Because it combines science and philosophy / spirituality, the approach is holistic. Chopra insists that the universe is not a force that surrounds us. Not only is there a whole universe within our cellular body, but we are part of the universe, we are the universe. By accepting this fusion --more, embracing it-- chances are we will be able to face disease, fight it, and eventually destroy it. Such is the premise of Quantum Healing.

What fascinates me first as I read the pages of this book is the man of science patiently explaining the intricacies of our physical entrails, so to speak, and telling his readers how intelligent the body is. How when, say, the common cold starts doing its nasty little act, a whole cellular system gets into action, with millions and millions of microscopic little workers transmitting messages to each other, and doing everything in their power to kill the invader. In other words, Chopra states that our organism contains everything that it needs to heal itself.

Then why do we die of cancer? Of AIDS? Of a heart attack? Why do we need medicine?

Perhaps because we are disconnected. Perhaps because western medicine with all its specialization has become disconnected from itself.

34 of 45 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on March 24, 1997
Format: Paperback
Dr. Chopra's thoughtful book summarizes recent advances in neuroendocrinology that are helpful in explaining why the mind is not simply located in the brain, but is to be found throughout the body. He gives a cogent explanation for the mechanism by which an individual can 'think' themselves sick, and 'think' themselves well again--a proposition that I believe most people instinctively credit but cannot explain. His writing style is very compelling, and his book is filled with personal stories and stories of his patients that make it hard to put down. Unfortunately, Dr. Chopra seems unable to believe that the miraculous series of chemical reactions that we call the mind could have arisen by itself, and he therefore resorts to some distorted concepts from quantum physics to give a 'why' explanation. My advice: pay attention to the endocrinology and ignore the physics. The book will make you think long and hard about traditional 'Western' cancer treatment protocols

To those reviewers that claim this book is nonsense are completely missing the point. In my opinion the author is expanding traditional Western thinking around healing. Not that we can actually study and manipulate the quantum level of our own bodies, but rather entertain new ways of enhancing our own healing through the power of our own minds
Scientists can prove that being depressed, angry, or generally negative causes a negative biological reaction. Why can't the inverse be true?
I recommend if you're searching for a way to better understand how your state of mind might impact your health, or are searching for alternative therapy, pick up this book.
