Healing and the Mind (1993)

Ancient medical science told us our minds and bodies are one. So did philosophers of old. Now modern science and new research are helping us to understand these connections.

In Healing and the Mind, Bill Moyers talks with physicians, scientists, therapists and patients – people who are taking a new look at the meaning of sickness and health. In a five-part series of provocative interviews, he discusses their search for answers to perplexing questions: How do emotions translate into chemicals in our bodies? How do thoughts and feelings influence health? How can we collaborate with our bodies to encourage healing?

Healing and the Mind is a documentary series destined to influence how millions think about sickness and health.
