How is it possible that terminally ill people regain their health?
When patients make a full recovery without any therapeutic treatment, doctors are faced with a mystery: The body itself has made an illness disappear. In no perceptible way did modern medicine contribute to that. Such spontaneous recoveries occur time and again since after all, our body possesses its own organisms to survive illnesses and injuries at its disposal. Alternative healing methods can support these self-healing powers.
Kurt Langbein, one of the most renowned medical journalists and himself a cancer survivor, asks himself the question: How does healing work – and what does our psyche contribute to it? Empathetically and open to the wonders of life, yet scientifically substantiated, he seeks answers to the questions of how we can make our body heal itself and what part medical practitioners and healers play in that.
