The Beautiful Cure : The Revolution in Immunology and What It Means for Your Health Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

"Visceral."--Wall Street Journal "Illuminating."--Publishers Weekly "Heroic."--Science The immune system holds the key to human health.

In The Beautiful Cure, leading immunologist Daniel M.

Davis describes how the scientific quest to understand how the immune system works--and how it is affected by stress, sleep, age, and our state of mind--is now unlocking a revolutionary new approach to medicine and well-being. The body's ability to fight disease and heal itself is one of the great mysteries and marvels of nature.

But in recent years, painstaking research has resulted in major advances in our grasp of this breathtakingly beautiful inner world: a vast and intricate network of specialist cells, regulatory proteins, and dedicated genes that are continually protecting our bodies.

Far more powerful than any medicine ever invented, the immune system plays a crucial role in our daily lives.

We have found ways to harness these natural defenses to create breakthrough drugs and so-called immunotherapies that help us fight cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and many age-related diseases, and we are starting to understand whether activities such as mindfulness might play a role in enhancing our physical resilience. Written by a researcher at the forefront of this adventure, The Beautiful Cure tells a dramatic story of scientific detective work and discovery, of puzzles solved and mysteries that linger, of lives sacrificed and saved.

With expertise and eloquence, Davis introduces us to this revelatory new understanding of the human body and what it takes to be healthy.
