This unique collection brings together extraordinary and inspiring interviews and encounters with leading healers and therapists working in complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine. Through intimate conversations with top scientists and physicians about their own personal experiences with alternative modalities, both as human beings and as healers, readers are exposed to the many different disciplines that comprise this field. Additionally, through viewing the collection of conversations as a whole, the underlying principles that make alternative and complementary medicine so workable are revealed.
