As a companion to the Body & Soul series, this guide offers expanded versions of interviews from each program, along with a look at some of the people who have changed their lives by incorporating Body & Soul principles. You'll hear from experts like mind/body research pioneer Herbert Benson on how to combat stress; David Eisenberg, M.D., on ways that cancer patients can navigate the confusing world of complementary therapies; Larry Dossey, M.D., on what science has to say about the power of prayer; anti-diet expert Geneen Roth on how to weigh what you want without depriving yourself; and Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., on ways to become a more effective parent.

This book includes a 50-page supplement on how to choose an alternative practitioner, what reference works you'll want on your whole-self bookshelf, and a complete glossary of terms used in alternative and complementary therapies. This special resource section will also point you toward health-related Web sites, and tell you what those confusing initials after the names of alternative practitioners really mean.
