"This DVD on "The New Medicine" covers a frontier in medicine where to date we have merely scratched the surface. That frontier is how the state of mind of a patient interacts with traditional science applications when treating dis-ease. The power of the mind over body is overwhelmingly important in treating illness, and this DVD does a beautiful job at convincing even the most resolute main stream medical doctor of the value in treating the whole person - body, mind, and spirit. The DVD is not some wishful thinking episode of discovery, but actually involves credible integrative medical experts who are in the real world truly making a difference in patients lives - a difference for the better that goes far beyond what most people expect to be a good outcome. As the DVD brings out -- It is not only the disease that a person has that is important, but what kind of person has the disease. This DVD is likely to encourage a patient, or even a healthy individual, to take the time to make changes in one's life style to live life to the fullest - by taking time to focus on what is really important in life - relationships. It was so uplifting to view medical students being taught by their seasoned medical professors the absolute importance in searching for and discovering each patient's "story" - mental state, life style and relationships, as well as treating their medical disease. The DVD captured many patient stories of successfully dealing with their disease using alternative mind therapy techiques, in total conjuction with their medical doctor partnering with them throughout their traditional medical treatment."
