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.

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.

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.

I am so thankful for this book by Chopra.

What I especially enjoyed was his description of the quantum intelligence within us.

He explains that our bodies cells naturally regenerate over time--time and time again. A traumatic event that he/she experiences at one point in time can be relived dozens of years later--and can be truly re-experienced emotionally as if the trauma has just again occurred. Chopra poses the question ' if the cells that were present during the actual traumatic event have since died and have been regenerated--where then is the being drawing the emotions from the past from?'...(I ask not to be quoted as I am not quoting Chopra word for word).

This idea stirred within me a great sense of awareness.

Our bodies truly are extensions of something much much greater than what our physical senses are able to reveal. If our eyes could sense radiation, our physical experiences and thus perceptions and thus realities would change...What then is our reality?

I was left feeling fully content and satisfied with knowing--we know nothing--not really anyway...

I am comfortable and even more excited about life--because I know for certain this physical life is simply just one form of that which we human beings call 'physical life.'

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.

What we focus upon--will ultimately define that which we define as reality....

Namaste...
