Editorial Reviews

Review

Grand Prize Winner, 2013 Nautilus Book Awards - Better Books for a Better World

From the Author

  • "In our overstressed lives, we need heavy doses of renewal. When the neuro-endocrine consequences overwhelm our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, we need something more than antibiotics--we need something transformational and transcendent. Kerouac with On the Road and Pirsig with Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance each inspired a generation and guided a movement. David Mercier's marvelous book will do the same. After reading this engaging integration of stories, philosophy, and medicine, you will never think of healing in the same way again"
Distinguished University Professor Richard Boyatzis, Ph.D.,Case Western Reserve University; co-author with Dan Goleman and Annie McKee of the international bestseller Primal Leadership and co-author with Annie McKee of Resonant Leadership

  • "In his remarkable book, A Beautiful Medicine, David Mercier has described revolutionary new ways of understanding disease, health, and healing. It is beautifully written, well researched, and a treasure trove of transformative ideas. His therapeutic strategy transcends conventional allopathic interventions - it treats the symptom not as a pathological phenomenon that needs to be controlled,but as a message that can lead us to the deeper roots of the problem. He weaves a rich tapestry of medicine, psychotherapy, acupuncture, diet, exercise, spirituality, and art; and illustrates the efficacy of this multidimensional mosaic with touching, compelling  personal stories from his practice. By emphasizing the importance of meaning in human life and moving beyond distorting illusions about our own nature and the nature of reality, David Mercier combines the roles of therapist and spiritual teacher."
Stanislav Grof, M.D., author of Beyond the Brain, Psychology of the Future, The Cosmic Game, and When the Impossible Happens
          
  • "A Beautiful Medicine is the best prescription for a longer, healthier, more satisfying life that I've ever encountered. It makes total sense. It gives you hope. It's uplifting. If you care about your health and well-being-your quality of life-you should read this important book."
 Roger Vaughan, author of Herbert Von Karajan; Ted Turner-the Man 
Behind the Mouth; The Grand Gesture; and others
  • "In this stunning book about the true nature of health and wholeness, David Mercier opens a gate of awareness into the beautiful possibilities that medicine holds when practiced as the art of integrating body, heart, mind, soul, and cosmos. His language is lyrical, his insights profound.  In A Beautiful Medicine, David Mercier offers us a glimpse into the depths of what it means to be vibrantly alive by accessing our innate processes of wellness and healing."
 Abby Rosen, Ph.D., psychologist, author  of LASTING Transformation:A Guide to Navigating Life's Journey,                   
  • "David Mercier understands wholeness. In this work, he explains how curing what ails us must include the mechanics of Western medicine, while also embracing the messages from the soul. It is these messages that inform the healer about the sources of pain, and therefore whisper cues about how to heal them. You will never look at your well-being in the same way again." 
Lance H. K. Secretan, author, The Spark, the Flame, and the Torch; One: the Art and Practice of Conscious Leadership; Inspire: What Great Leaders Do; 
Inspirational Leadership: Destiny, Calling, and Cause
  • "Mercier's book is a gem.....it re-evokes all of why we (in integrative medicine) got into this work together. A Beautiful Medicine is a beautiful book."
 John Weeks, Publisher, The Integrator Blog
