Healing, Gratitude and Love with Dr. Bernie Siegel
April 5, 2012
Hosted by Dr. Susan Allison
Can you imagine calling your doctor by his or her first name, being hugged and encouraged during an appointment? Few of us have had this experience that Dr. Bernie Siegel’s patients enjoyed! During today’s show, Bernie, as he prefers to be called, will share his journey that began in the 70’s when he was a surgeon. He began hugging his patients, asking them to call him Bernie, listening to them closely and encouraging them to share their feelings verbally and in their drawings. He’ll tell you about starting a therapy group with his wife Bobbie called Exceptional Cancer Patients (ECaP) that still exists. Bernie will also talk about why he believes people become ill and how they can heal themselves. Finally, he will share why love is the greatest healer: “…unconditional love is the most powerful known stimulant of the immune system. The truth is: love heals.” Let doctor and author Bernie Siegel inspire you to experience the highest vibration: Love!
