Depuis de nombreuses années, les Drs Deepak Chopra et Rudolph Tanzi révolutionnent la médecine et notre compréhension du corps et de l'esprit. Dans ce livre, ils explorent les moyens de favoriser notre autoguérison et notre santé à long terme, en agissant en amont, sur notre système immunitaire. L'immunité - c'est-à-dire la capacité du corps à conjurer la maladie - ne peut pas être considérée comme acquise. Pour faire face à de nombreuses maladies comme le cancer, le diabète, la maladie d'Alzheimer ou les accidents cardio-vasculaires, nous devons au jour le jour faire les bons choix, qu'il s'agisse de notre alimentation ou plus globalement de notre hygiène de vie. Car c'est nous, et non les médecins ou les sociétés pharmaceutiques, qui sommes responsables de notre santé. Deepak Chopra et Rudolph Tanzi apportent dans cet ouvrage toutes leurs connaissances pour nous aider à améliorer notre système immunitaire en stimulant le cerveau et nos gènes. Ils détaillent les dernières découvertes scientifiques sur le fonctionnement du corps et de l'esprit, donnent des moyens de gérer au mieux le stress chronique et l'inflammation - qui font partie des facteurs les plus nuisibles pour la santé - mais proposent également un plan d'action avant-gardiste et concret sur sept jours favorisant l'autoguérison. UN OUVRAGE CLAIR, ACCESSIBLE ET BRILLANT, PROFONDÉMENT RÉALISTE ET OPTIMISTE, ET QUI MARQUE L'AVÈNEMENT D'UNE NOUVELLE ÈRE MÉDICALE.

Reveals 'the forgotten miracle' - the body's infinite capacity for change and renewal. This book focuses the author's attention on a part of the body undergoing intense study and radical reevaluation: the brain. It presents a vision of the brain together with a practical plan for how to use it to achieve higher levels of success and fulfilment.
The authors of the New York Times bestseller Super Brain present a bold new understanding of our genes and how simple changes in lifestyle can boost genetic activity. The leap into "radical well-being" is a promise waiting to be fulfilled. "You are not simply the sum total of the genes you were born with," writes Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi. "You are the user and controller of your genes, the author of your biological story. No prospect in self-care is more exciting." Learning how to shape your gene activity is at the heart of this exciting and eagerly-anticipated book from the bestselling duo behind Super Brain, which became a nationwide hit on public television. For decades medical science has believed that genes determined our biological destiny. Now the new genetics has changed that assumption forever. You will always have the genes you were born with, but genes are dynamic, responding to everything we think, say, and do. Suddenly they've become our strongest allies for personal transformation. When you make lifestyle choices that optimize how your genes behave, you can reach for a state of health and fulfillment undreamed of even a decade ago. The impact on prevention, immunity, diet, aging, and chronic disorders is unparalleled.
"You are not simply the sum output of your genome," write Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi, Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. "You are the user and inventor of your genome." For years it was accepted knowledge that genes were fixed components of our bodies, and that we as individuals were incapable of altering our genetic make-up. Yet groundbreaking research suggests that changes in lifestyle and diet can greatly influence our genetic predispositions to disease and certain physical and psychological behaviours. Moreover, the adoption of ancient Vedic practices such as yoga and meditation can create genetic mutations that allow us to lead longer and healthier lives. Super Genes includes meditation and breathing practical exercises, as well as information on how to manage risk factors for disease. Combining scientific research with insights from ancient traditions, Chopra and Tanzi show how we need not be at the mercy of our genetic inheritance. Instead, they argue, we have the power to rewire our super genes for health and happiness.
After collaborating on two major books featured as PBS specials, Super Brain and Super Genes, Chopra and Tanzi now tackle the issue of lifelong health and heightened immunity.
We are the midst of a new revolution.
For over twenty-five years Deepak Chopra, M.D. and Rudolph E. Tanzi, Ph.D. have revolutionized medicine and how we understand our minds and our bodies--Chopra, the leading expert in the field of integrative medicine; Tanzi, the pioneering neuroscientist and discoverer of genes that cause Alzheimer's Disease. After reaching millions of people around the world through their collaborations on the hugely successful Super Brain and Super Genes books and public television programs, the New York Times bestselling authors now present a groundbreaking, landmark work on the supreme importance of our immune system in relation to our lifelong health.
In the face of environmental toxins, potential epidemics, superbugs, and the accelerated aging process, the significance of achieving optimum health has never been more crucial--and the burden to achieve it now rests on individuals making the right lifestyle choices every day.
That means you. You--not doctors, not pharmaceutical companies--are ultimately responsible for your own health.
Chopra and Tanzi want to help readers make the best decisions possible when it comes to creating a holistic and transformative health plan for life. In The Healing Self they not only push the boundaries of the intellect to bring readers the newest research and insights on the mind-body, mind-gene, and mind-immunity connections, but they offer a cutting-edge, seven-day action plan, which outlines the key tools everyone needs to develop their own effective and personalized path to self-healing.
In addition, The Healing Self closely examines how we can best manage chronic stress and inflammation, which are immerging as the primary detriments of well-being. Moreover, Chopra and Tanzi turn their attention to a host of chronic disorders such as hypertension, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer’s Disease, known to take years and sometimes decades to develop before the first symptoms appear. Contemporary medical systems aren’t set to attend to prolonged low-grade chronic inflammation or the everyday infections and stresses that take their toll on the body and can lead to disease, aging, and death. Thus, learning the secrets of self-healing is not only urgent but mandatory for optimum health. The Healing Self then is a call to action, a proven, strategic program that will arm readers with the information they need to protect themselves and achieve lifelong wellness.
There is a new revolution occurring in health today. That revolution is you.
