Healing the Soul

Release Date: 2014-10-01
Genre: Attitude (Psychology)

In the last few decades, Western medicine has seen incredible advances in technology to treat the sick. That's the good news. The bad news is that with the demands on their time, falling reimbursements from the government, improved medications, and restrictions imposed by insurance carriers, doctors often depend more on computers than on their own instincts and experience in caring for their patients. As a neurologist who deals daily with crippling and sometimes fatal conditions, Dr. Bhupendra Khatri has become increasingly aware of the mind-body connection and the incredible power of the subconscious to heal, postpone death, and deal with unspeakable circumstances. The many stories in Healing the Soul: Unexpected Stories of Courage, Hope, and the Power of Mind describe the lessons the author has learned from his patients, as well as current research about the resiliency of the human spirit. Within these pages are stories of courage, inexplicable medical miracles, and disappointing transactions with intractable insurance companies. Dr. Khatri has been encouraged many healthcare providers, journalists, and patients to share these stories, as well as his research into issues he raises in the book, in hopes of inspiring patients and their families and shedding light on little-known contradictions in the U.S. healthcare system.

I looked at the gaping hole in his chest and began to panic, feeling certain Tie should have repaired what he could, and Victor should have been able to heal him by now. "Victor, why isn't he healing himself?" I asked anxiously. "He can't," he said. Victor opened his eyes and sat back looking defeated. "Then you do it," I cried out. My voice was beginning to shake. I was about two seconds away from becoming as unhinged as Angie. "I can't do it. I can't heal him." He buried his face in his hands. "Quit telling me what can't be done, and tell me what can!" "Nothing can be done, okay?" The look he gave me was awful. A look of defeat. "There is absolutely nothing that anyone can do. The sword that stabbed him was forged in the land of the dead, and I only have so much power at my disposal. What little power I did have, I used to heal you when we were at the hospital." I swallowed down the lump of guilt forming in my throat and let out a trembling breath. "Even if I hadn't healed you tonight, I still wouldn't be able to help him. You can't heal a stab wound inflicted by that kind of sword," he whispered. "Tie is going to die." *** Kindle Categories Teen and Young Adult > Science Fiction and Fantasy > Fantasy > Myths and Legends Teen and Young Adult > Science Fiction and Fantasy > Fantasy > Coming of Age Teen and Young Adult > Romance > Paranormal and Fantasy Teen and Young Adult > Science Fiction and Fantasy > Fantasy > Sword and Sorcery
