The connections between body, mind, and nature are not obvious but are clearly present. This book helps to "connect-the-dots" between these parts of nature and puts them into a historical and international context so that you will see why we have been blind for so long...and how to re-connect with a healthy integrative point of view.
"We cannot ultimately be healthy unless the world we live in is healthy as well. That's why the future of medicine and healing must be green. Dr. Larry Malerba offers an inspiring portrait of this emerging awareness.”—Larry Dossey, MD, former chief of staff of Medical City Dallas Hospital and author of The Science of Premonitions and Healing Words
According to Dr. Larry Malerba, modern medicine has perfected the short-term technical repair of the physical body at the expense of the long-term psychological and spiritual well-being of the whole person. In Green Medicine he examines this issue and provides a realistic blueprint for wellness and a valuable guide for those seeking deeper and more lasting healing.
Written in an accessible style, the book draws on a rich range of fields—physics, philosophy, Jungian thought, shamanism, alchemy, Eastern thought, Western esotericism, sustainability, orthodox medicine—to create a green medical paradigm that represents a powerful synthesis of medical inclusivity. Dr. Malerba interweaves case histories from his own practice with innovative concepts from alternative and Western medicine in order to address a number of crucial questions:
· What are the personal and environmental costs to the overuse of pharmaceutical drugs?
· Is conventional medicine as scientific as it claims to be?
· How can conventional doctors and alternative healers begin to work together?
· How can individuals transform medicine to become participants in their own healthcare?
Green Medicine offers a practical and philosophical basis for building a viable green alternative that draws on the inherent unity of body, heart, mind, soul, and nature.
“Larry Malerba offers a passionate appeal for a medical approach that treats the whole person, not merely the symptom, and provides a clinic for the soul, not just a repair shop for the body.”
—Robert Moss, best-selling author of Conscious Dreaming and The Secret History of Dreaming
“Any physician or patient who has ever wondered why we keep ‘treating diseases' while ‘well-being' seems increasingly elusive will be interested in this book.”
—David Anick, MD, PhD, research associate at Harvard Medical School and McLean Hospital
“Green Medicine contains a deep wisdom that connects ecological thinking, cutting-edge physiology and medicine, and deep spirituality. Reading this book is itself therapeutic.”
—Dana Ullman, MPH, author of The Homeopathic Revolution and co-author of Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicine
