>The bestselling author ofThe Brain That Changes Itselfpresents astounding advances in the treatment of
ain injury and illness<
><
>InThe Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge described the most important
eakthrough in our understanding of the
ain in four hundred years: the discovery that the
ain can change its own structure and function in response to mental experience—what we call neuroplasticity.<
><
>His revolutionary new book shows, for the first time, how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. It describes natural, non-invasive avenues into the
ain provided by the forms of energy around us—light, sound, vi
ation, movement—which pass through our senses and our bodies to awaken the
ain's own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated years of chronic pain or recovered from debilitating strokes or accidents; children on the autistic spectrum or with learning disorders normalizing; symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and cere
al palsy radically improved, and other near-miracle recoveries. And we learn how to vastly reduce the risk of dementia with simple approaches anyone can use.<
><
>For centuries it was believed that the
ain's complexity prevented recovery from damage or disease.The Brain's Way of Healingshows that this very sophistication is the source of a unique kind of healing. As he did so lucidly inThe Brain That Changes Itself, Doidge uses stories to present cutting-edge science with practical real-world applications, and principles that everyone can apply to improve their
ain's performance and health.
