Health for the Whole Person: The Complete Guide to Holistic Medicine

Hastings, Arthur C., Fadiman, James, & Gordon, James S. (Eds.).

 Based on a report prepared by the Institute of Noetic Sciences for the National Institute of Mental Health, this book is aimed at both the health care professional and the layperson in order to brief them on "attitudes, information, and tools for a holistic approach to medicine, health, and mental health" (p. xi). Each chapter is written by a specialist and surveys a specific topic in six broad subject areas: "Holistic Medicine," "The Context of Health," "Modalities for Health and Mental Health," "Applications Throughout the Life Cycle," "Alternative Medical Aspects," and "Social and Political Implications." A subsection on "The Role of the Mind" contains chapters on: "Meditation and Holistic Medicine," by Deane H. Shapiro, Jr.; "Psychic Healing," by Stanley Krippner; and "The Placebo Effect," by Herbert Benson and Mark D. Epstein. A primary feature is the extensive bibliographies after each chapter, containing lengthy annotations of the most important practical and theoretical books and articles on the preceding subject.
