About the book


‘Now we have a book which has impressed me. Treat yourself to a marvelous adventure and inspirational experience by reading this book.’
— Harold G. Koenig


This book explains the interdependence of science and spirituality as well as the links between science, faith, health and medicine. Researchers have confirmed that faith and prayer help in improving physical as well as mental health. Researchers from all over the world are realizing a clear and measurable effect of faith on health and sickness. Medicine now openly accepts the role of faith and spirituality. Faith gives strength to face a negative event or illness, when hope is required the most. Scientific studies have shown that hope and positive thoughts change the body’s hormonal and biochemical scenario to stimulate healing. This book explains how science, faith and healing are dependent on each other and helps you to derive a greater understanding of it and eventually to lead a better life.
