Description

Journalist Erik Vance explores the surprising ways expectations and beliefs influence our bodily responses to pain, disease, and everyday events. Drawing on centuries of research and interviews with leading experts in the field, Vance takes us on a fascinating adventure from Harvard's research labs to a witch doctor's office in Catemaco, Mexico, to an alternative medicine school near Beijing (often called "China's Hogwarts"). Vance builds a case for our "internal pharmacy"-the very real chemical reactions our brains produce when we think we are experiencing pain or healing, actual or perceived, and his firsthand dispatches will change the way you think-and feel.
