Bruce Lipton for me made it really easy to understand exactly how the brain can heal your body. Explaining this from a scientific point of you it helped people like me in the Holistic world to explain to people from a logical point of view that we can heal ourselves.
When I injured my back and could not walk or move for months the one thing that got me through was the fact that I knew I could heal myself. With the help of other holistic methods I am proud to say that I am fully mobile again.
This is also very well explained in book Evolve Your Brain by who healed himself after a very tragic accident. I was so impressed by both of these books that I just had to recommend them
