I'm reading a book. I'm about half way through it and it's a really good book.
It's written by Donna Jackson Nakazawa, a science journalist who has lived with a couple of debilitating diseases. She had been reading a lot of articles about brain science and wondered if some of the stuff she was reading about might help her with her health.
It's a REALLY interesting book. And it goes (in layman's terms) into the links between childhood trauma, brain science and health problems.
I got it from the library, but it would be worth the purchase price: http://www.amazon.ca/The-Last-Best-Cure-Healing/dp/159463128X
She also talks about how negative thinking can affect the physical body. And a lot of other things.
Anyone who is dealing with health problems (psychological or physical), who has a loved one who is dealing with such things, who had a difficult childhood, or who is just plain interested in the connections between body and brain should read this book.
If you want.
'Cause it's making me think.
