A Beautiful Medicine is an exploration of the soul of health, healing, and medicine; it focuses on the key idea that our symptoms are not the enemy, but our teachers— guiding us not only toward greater physical health, but also toward our psychological and spiritual development.
Mercier wrote the book with the hope that it would
open hearts and inspire change. It includes many stories of his patients —stories that are either poignant for their tragic tones, or remarkable as illustrations of healing that defy conventional notions of what’s possible in medicine.
Readers who enjoy Deepak Chopra, Andrew Weil, and Christiane Northrup will relish this book.
A Beautiful Medicine, in a class by itself, presents a radically different view of how we normally see health and healing.
“Kerouac with On the Road and Pirsig with Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance each inspired a generation and guided a movement. David Mercier’s marvelous book will do the same. After reading this engaging integration of stories, philosophy, and medicine, you will never think of healing in the same way again!” -- Richard Boyatzis, Ph.D.
