The New York Times bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself presents astounding advances in the treatment of brain injury and illnessIn The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge described the most important breakthrough in our understanding of the brain in four hundred years: the discovery that the brain can change its own structure and function in response to mental experience--what we call neuroplasticity.His revolutionary new audiobook shows, for the first time, how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. It describes natural, non-invasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us--light, sound, vibration, movement--which pass through our senses and our bodies to awaken the brain's own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated years of chronic pain or recovered from debilitating strokes or accidents; children on the autistic spectrum or with learning disorders normalizing; symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and cerebral palsy radically improved, and other near-miracle recoveries. And we learn how to vastly reduce the risk of dementia with simple approaches anyone can use.For centuries it was believed that the brain's complexity prevented recovery from damage or disease. The Brain's Way of Healing shows that this very sophistication is the source of a unique kind of healing. As he did so lucidly in The Brain That Changes Itself, Doidge uses stories to present cutting-edge science with practical real-world applications, and principles that everyone can apply to improve their brain's performance and health.

The subject of the book is fascinating, but the reading of it was definitely third rate. Perhaps the most surprising thing I learned was that the brain could be considered an appendage to the ear. The two most interesting items, therapy of various sorts with lights, and the uses of a tongue stimulator, are things that really should be available off the shelf at Walmart.

Absolutely fascinating! Things we were taught to take as set-in-stone are actually things we have power over changing. This gave me so many goosebumps and so much hope. I am actually adopting lots of the tips and ideas from this book.

Amazing and inspiring. I'm changing a couple of ways I live my life because of this book, and it is actually working. As one of the critics said, it is optimistic. I can't recommend it too highly. My currently most recommended book to my friends.
