The Healing Self: A Revolutionary New Plan to Supercharge Your Immunity and Stay Well for Life

By Deepak Chopra, Rudolph E Tanzi
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.



    REVIEW QUOTES
Praise for Super Genes

"In Super Genes, Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi illustrate the interplay of nature and nurture using cutting edge genetic science and argue persuasively that adapting one's lifestyle can maximize the potential to transcend the inherited susceptibilities handed down to us from our parents." -James Gusella, Ph.D., Director, Center for Human Genetic Research Harvard Medical School

"Once thought to be the domain of genes, the control of health and behavior is now dynamically linked to the environment, and more importantly, our perception of the environment. Super Genes, by Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi, is a paradigm-shattering synthesis of epigenetic science that offers an easy-to-understand explanation of the mechanisms by which consciousness and environment control our genetic activity. Drs. Chopra and Tanzi's contribution is a valuable resource that empowers us to become the masters of our fate rather than the 'victims' of our heredity." -Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., Epigenetic scientist and bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution and The Honeymoon Effect "The concept that biology is destiny is one of the most pathological and toxic exaggerations to emerge during the entire scientific era. This hard-core materialistic view has been a kind of psychological enslavement that has pushed many people into nihilism and despair. In Super Genes, Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi discuss new evidence that our genes are not our masters, but they respond in large measure to our choices and behaviors. The resulting view honors not just the body but mind and spirit as well--a vision that is as bright and hopeful as the old view was morbid and depressing. Super Genes is an important book. It will empower anyone who reads it, because it expands our view of what it means to be human." -Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters "Super Genes demolishes the myth that our genes determine our fate. Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi explain in breathtaking detail the magic of how our diet, lifestyle, our thoughts and even our gut bacteria or microbiome "talk" to our genes, regulating which genes get turned on or off, or turned up or down influencing every aspect of our health. This is essential reading for anyone interested in turning on their health, weight loss, happiness and longevity genes!" -Mark Hyman, MD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, The Blood Sugar Solution.

"We used to think everything about us was either our genetics or our environment. But in Super Genes, Deepak Chopra and Rudi Tanzi adeptly teach us that it's all about both--how tightly they are intertwined. And what we can do about it." -Eric Topol, MD, author The Patient Will See You Now, Professor of Genomics, The Scripps Research Institute

"Flawlessly weaving together the complicated science of genetics with the touching stories of very real people, my friends Deepak and Rudolph have written a book that you won't put down. You will find yourself scribbling furious notes, and sharing your new wisdom with the people you love. First they gave us all the ability to have Super Brains, and now they have done the same with our Super Genes." -Sanjay Gupta, MD, Neurosurgeon and author of Chasing Life, Cheating Death and Monday Mornings

"A ground breaking and eye-opening account of recent discoveries in two new fields - epigenetics and microbiomics - weaved with practical insights to optimize our own wellness and longevity. Rudy Tanzi and Deepak Chopra, renowned pioneers in their respective fields, have written one of the most important health books of the year." -Murali Doraiswamy MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Medicine, Duke University "Super Genes will take you on an exciting journey of discovery about the ways genetic expression can be modified by simple lifestyle changes and even by how you use your mind. The essential message of this important book is that your genes alone do not determine your destiny. You can learn how to influence them to enjoy better health and optimum well-being. I recommend it." -Andrew Weil, MD, author, Healthy Aging and Spontaneous Happiness "Our genes are a predisposition, but they are not our fate. The biological mechanisms that affect our health and well-being are often extraordinarily dynamic--for better and for worse. When we eat well, move more, stress less, and love more, our bodies often have a remarkable ability to transform and heal. Super Genes is a superb contribution to our growing knowledge that mind, brain, genome, and microbiome can act as a single system. Drs. Chopra and Tanzi continue to make pioneering contributions that are bringing integrative medicine into the mainstream. Highly recommended!" -Dean Ornish, M.D., Founder and President, Preventive Medicine Research Institute Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco

"Genetics is a two-way street. Drs. Chopra and Tanzi show how the mind can tell the genes to heal the body ." -Stuart Hameroff, M.D., Banner-University Medical Center, The University of Arizona

Byram Karasu, M.D., Silverman Professor and the University chariman, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
