Since the time of Hippocrates, wise people have known that to maintain or restore health is too large an issue to be handled only by the physician. It also requires a responsible and responsive patient and a supportive family or community structure.
In this book, the author is doing some pioneer work in exploring and clarifying these relationships. She hopes that the reader will gain understanding of the close interaction of body and mind, of individual and community, and of wellness to inner peace and happiness. She emphasizes the individual’s responsibility to learn, to grow and to become a stronger person. She appropriately maintains that a personal faith committment is part of being a whole person. This book should help many to achieve this goal.
