Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.


The New York Times-bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself presents astounding advances in the treatment of brain injury and illness. Now in an updated and expanded paperback edition.

Winner of the 2015 Gold Nautilus Award in Science & Cosmology

In his groundbreaking work The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge introduced readers to neuroplasticity--the brain's ability to change its own structure and function in response to activity and mental experience. Now his revolutionary new book shows how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. The Brain's Way of Healing describes natural, noninvasive avenues into the brain provided by the energy around us--in light, sound, vibration, and movement--that can awaken the brain's own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated chronic pain; recovered from debilitating strokes, brain injuries, and learning disorders; overcame attention deficit and learning disorders; and found relief from symptoms of autism, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and cerebral palsy. And we learn how to vastly reduce the risk of dementia, with simple approaches anyone can use.

   I feel like this really helped me after surgery
It helped me a lot, especially since surgery. 0 3171622 Like I said, it really helped me after surgery. Using repeated nerve mapping, I was able to understand why it was so important to break my pain cycle early and create new associations. If you enjoy reading medical literature, this may be a good read.
   Important research on chronic pain
It can be unbearable to live with pain. The book tells the story of six people who overcame crippling pain to find happiness. These are real events, not faked. The book continues to describe some of the more unusual research being done on pain with human subjects. If you are interested in biology, medicine or psychology, or suffer from chronic pain, this is a must read. I have passed the book on to many people. One man who suffered such pain found a doctor using some of these techniques and found relief. You don't have to be a scientist to read and understand the entire book.
   Some valid scientific points, but dangerously flawed concept
He added that the notion of neuroplasticity "is an awesome and important validated concept." The problem with this book is that it negates the profound and proven effectiveness of physical therapy and instead presents the idea that you can think your way out of pain. Very disappointed with the book.
   Cured my concussion
This book was a lifesaver for me, Mr. Dhaliwal said. The book came to me five months into recovery from a concussion. In addition, I had multiple symptoms and could not function properly. Laser therapy was performed at the Toronto clinic, Morgenthau said. After just five sessions, my cognition scores jumped by more than 20 points. You can't beat empirical evidence, Raymond said. After a year of therapy, I was able to continue it at home. The Lord helped me get 95 percent of my life back. But then I plateaued for several months, so I went back to the book and read the entire thing. He also mentioned a five-day boot camp in Utah for those with concussions called Cognitive FX. I flew to Utah, did that program and it brought me to 100 percent recovery, Mr. Kennedy said. Norman Doidge, the inventor of the microchip, was not present.
   An Exciting Read
I often find myself silently thanking the writer Norman Doidge, M.D., for the book. for having dedicated so much of his life to interviewing the most exciting pioneers in the field of neuroplasticity and for taking that information and through his own passion and genius, come up with exciting new understandings that go even beyond what any of the brilliant and dedicated men and women he interviews have come up on their own, without the benefit of the broader view that Dr. Doidge has created.
   Great primer on "brain retraining." Inspiring, thought-provoking examples.
This is a great primer to get started on the topic of self-directed neuroplasticity, also known as brain retraining. Michael Moscowitz' story and example were what inspired me to try. 19 months later, and I am hearing unsolicted comments about how marvelous, inspiring, and miraculous the changes in me have become.
   The brain that, in changing itself, heals the rest of the body
In "The Brain That Changes Itself," Brian Stokes Doige played a doctor who works with a supercomputer. More high- and low-tech examples of how our brains can change how we relieve pain, cure diseases and heal injuries in ways that are truly amazing, though sound. Anyone who has a chronic medical condition that doesn't respond to current mainstream treatments should read these two books, Garton said. He added that brain plasticity will be a broad category of medical treatment in the future.
