The Mind's Surprising Ability to Heal the Body

Can you really heal your body with your mind power alone? 

It may sound like a far-fetched, new-age idea, but researchers are making some surprising discoveries.

Dr. Roizen speaks with Jo Marchant, author of the best-selling new book, Cure: A Journey into the Science of Mind over Body

She shares some examples from her book, including how meditation protects against depression and dementia, how social connections can add years to your life, and how patients who feel cared for recover faster from surgery.

Learn more about the mind's ability to heal and its limitations, plus how you can use these findings in your own life.
