Though we live in an age of unprecedented technological advances in medicine, we understand that a harmonious mind-body connection is important to our overall health. Indeed, this crucial balance has been universally believed to be the key component of holistic well-being since ancient times.
In Jewish Perspectives on Illness and Healing, clinical psychologist Dr. Ellen G. Levine integrates the wisdom of Jewish tradition with a modern understanding of the human psyche to create a guide for achieving optimum health.
Dr. Levine introduces fresh insights into the study of Judaic beliefs on illness and healing by drawing on the Old Testament, the Talmud, Hebrew etymology, the writings of Maimonides and the lore of Jewish mysticism. She illuminates the concept that nurturing the spirit is a fundamental element in maintaining physical health.
Jewish Perspectives on Illness and Healing provides a wealth of inspirational advice and invaluable self-assessment tools for anyone seeking to gain control over both their physical and emotional lives through the development of spiritual awareness.
