Andrew Weil

Andrew Weil, M.D., a graduate of Harvard Medical School, has worked for the National Institute of Mental Health and for fifteen years was a research associate in ethnopharmacology at the Harvard Botanical Museum. As a fellow of the Institute of Current World Affairs, he traveled extensively throughout the world collecting information about the medicinal properties of plants, altered states of consciousness, and healing. 

Spontaneous Healing

In his best-selling Spontaneous Healing (review or buy), Dr. Andrew Weil explains how to discover and enhance the body's natural ability to maintain and heal itself. Dr. Weil's no-nonsense approach combines natural therapies along with cutting edge discoveries from the field of alternative medicine.  Drawing on case histories as well as medical techniques from around the world, Dr. Andrew Weil shows how spontaneous healing has worked to resolve life-threatening diseases, severe trauma, and chronic pain.
