What role do the mind and spirit play in the spontaneous remission of incurable illness? In this powerful talk, Dr. Jeffrey Rediger uses stories of "impossible" recoveries to illustrate unexplored possibilities latent within the mind, body, and spirit.
In the last year, my outlook on healing has transformed. I now have a much broader view of the components necessary to restore the body and mind. They both have to work in concert. We cannot restore wholeness and health by addressing ourselves piece by piece. Dr Rediger discusses some of the spiritual aspects of what we typically call 'spontaneous remissions'.
