Can our minds really heal our bodies?
Director: Virginia Wright
Based on the New York Times bestselling book by Jo Marchant
The idea of ‘healing thoughts’ was long ago hijacked by new age gurus and spiritual healers, but a growing body of scientific research is now uncovering evidence that our subjective thoughts, emotions and beliefs can have very real benefits to our health, from easing symptoms and improving immune responses to reducing our risk of getting ill in the first place. With clarity, compassion, and humour, Cure points the way towards a system of medicine that treats us not simply as bodies but as human beings, and explains how we can make use of these findings in our own lives.
