About the Author
Author Affiliation
Amit Goswami, PHD, featured in the widely seen and lauded What the Bleep Do We Know!? boldly reinterprets the leading methods of alternative medicine-homeopathy, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and Ayurveda-as well as conventional medicine from the viewpoint of quantum physics in this new edition of his popular book. He demonstrates how these seemingly different models can be combined into a new system of integrative medicine. Goswami believes that at the heart of all illness and recovery is consciousness, and his integrative method offers physicians and patients a whole new way of applying healthcare with a greater potential for healing, a breakthrough practice that could be the basis for a major paradigm shift in medicine.

Main Description
"Dr. Amit Goswami as usual has the most brilliant insights into how consciousness conceives, governs, constructs, and becomes biology." -Deepak Chopra For quantum physicist Amit Goswami, medicine is a timely area of application for the new science based on the primacy of consciousness. This new science has a spectacular ability to integrate conventional science, spirituality, and healing. If any field needs integration, says Goswami, it is medicine and healing. Goswami boldly reinterprets the leading methods of alternative medicine -- homeopathy, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and Ayurveda, and conventional medicine in this new edition of the popular book. He shows how these seemingly different models can be combined into a new system of integral medicine and offers profound insights into the relationship between physics and consciousness. This approach offers physicians and patients a whole new way of applying medicine with a greater potential for healing and could be the basis for a major paradigm shift in medicine.
