Larry Dossey

Larry Dossey, M.D., is former co-chair of the panel on Mind/Body Interventions, Office of Alternative Medicine, National Institutes of Health. He has appeared on dozens of national television shows, including Dateline, Larry King Live and The Oprah Winfrey Show.  Dr. Larry Dossey's books, including the bestselling Healing Words have focused on the relationship between healing, thought, and prayer.

Healing Words

A New York Times bestseller, Healing Words (review or buy) aims to restore the spiritual art of healing to the science of medicine.  In the book, Larry Dossey explores the effect of prayer on healing, and offers many scientific case studies to bolster his ideas.  Larry Dossey's goal is a "medicine that works better and feels better."

Prayer is Good Medicine

Based on his groundbreaking work linking prayer and health, author and physician Larry Dossey offers new ways of looking at prayer and explores how we can harness its remarkable healing powers. No mater what form your faith takes, Prayer is Good Medicine (review or buy) will inspires you with a new appreciation of how prayer can bring about healthful change.

The Power of Premonitions

The four parts of The Power of Premonitions (review or buy) take readers through documented cases of premonitions. Just as he did in Healing Words, the groundbreaking book that propelled Dossey into the public consciousness, in this compelling new book Dossey uses cutting-edge science to prove the value of what had long been considered spiritual mumbo-jumbo. This is a book for the skeptical mind, but itís also for the believerís heart -- because its author possesses the rare gift of having both.

Reinventing Medicine

In his latest book, Dr. Larry Dossey provides scientific and medical evidence that the spiritual dimension works in healing. Citing the work of scientists at such well-known institutions, he demonstrates that spiritual tools such as intercessory prayer, dreams, coincidence, and intuition have measurable, powerful, and profound effects on how we heal. Reinventing Medicine (review or buy) offers a vision of the coming era in medicine.
