The Dynamics Of Disease & Healing
The Role That Perception and Beliefs Play In Our Health and Wellness
Health is the most precious element in human life and through the holistic approach, which takes into account the complexity of human existence with its physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects, can be better maintained and reestablished. A phenomenon such as the placebo effect, however, that though containing no active ingredients whatsoever still allows some people to heal, has generated in the researcher the curiosity and desire to better understand the dynamics of healing. This study, through its phenomenological descriptive approach, tries to identify what it is that makes healing possible by analyzing the dynamics of disease and healing and the role and extent that the human belief system and perception play in them. The findings are related to the seven case studies examined, whose data collection included field notes and consequent transcripts taken through semi-structured open-ended interviews and observation articulated in three sessions.

Finished reading this wonderful book, “Disease and Healing Dynamics”. I LOVED IT!! The author Maria Teresa De Donato, PhD. delivers a powerful message about health and wellness. This extract from her dissertation “The Dynamics Of Disease and Healing: The Role That Perception and Beliefs Play In Our Health and Wellness”, also published, focuses on belief, perception and individual awareness about illness. It got me thinking about many things especially a persons spiritual path to “awakening”. The author provides excellent sourced and cited case studies, revealed in CH 7, where we learn about disease at a core and cellular level. As well, the author brings to light our individual tendencies related to thinking, feeling, and sensing. Are all three ingredients necessary for transformation? Very insightful, thought provoking and demystifying. Great research here.
