“It is supposed to be a professional secret, but I ‘ll tell you anyway.

We doctors do nothing. We only help and encourage the doctor within”

Albert Schweitzer, M.D.

I love this quote! In the book, Mind over Medicine, Dr Lissa Rankin, M.D. describes the differences between the words healing and curing.  She says when we talk about healing a fracture, we usually mean curing a fracture. In other words the broken bone grows back together. The dictionary defines heal in two ways: ” to effect cure” and to become whole”. Now when she uses the word heal she is referring to the second definition- the return to wholeness!  This is a great book to learn about self-healing!
