Mindfullness and Meditation

In 2010, Fadel Zeidan and a team of researchers from University of North Carolina published a study of “the effects of brief mindfulness meditation training on experimentally induced pain.” I asked Zeidan, now based at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, to tell me about that first study and its findings, and explain how his research has progressed since.

God's Medicine Man

Noble Red Man (Matthew King)

Are Miracles Real?

Paul Pearsall, Ph.D. by Paul Pearsall, Ph.D. Medical tests confirmed that I had been rescued against all odds from a virulent Stage IV cancer that had eaten away my bones and left me dying in agony. I tried to tell my doctors to spread the news that miracles are real. I wanted them to embrace the words of David Ben-Gurion that "in order to be realist you must believe in miracles".

Healing Power of Faith

Harold Koenig, Harold Koenig, M.D.

  Healing can include dramatic, sudden physical cures, but is not confined to the 'miraculous' or the spectacular.

Lewis Mehl-Madrona M.D., Lewis Mehl-Madrona M.D., Ph.D.

  I trained as a conventional physician. I have also studied Native American healing for more than twenty-five years. I have walked with feet in two different worlds for my entire medical career. I did this because I grew up knowing that 'Indian medicine' could help people when conventional medicine had nothing more to offer.
