Publisher Description

Twenty percent of all Americans, half of the elderly British, and two thirds of older Canadians take at least five prescription drugs per day--their lives a nonstop ritual of pill popping and trying to manage side effects. One in ten people in developed countries take antidepressants. Millions of boys who can't sit still in school are prescribed methamphetamines. Modern medicine has come to rely too much on pharmaceutical--as well as surgical--intervention. Skyrocketing global healthcare costs render this overmedication increasingly unaffordable. The wonders of modern medicine have also obscured the body's ability to heal itself. Your body produces its own drugs that can treat pain as well as a prescription, cure some joint problems as well as a surgeon, and treat most mild depression as well as a psychologist. We've all heard of endorphins, but did you know "endorphin" literally means "morphine made by your body"? Besides the body's self-healing abilities, recent clinical trials clearly show that states of mind affect our health. Relaxation, positive thinking, and comfortable social environments all provide measurable health benefits--sometimes as much as blockbuster drugs. Written using the latest high-quality clinical studies, Doctor You arms you with knowledge that will empower you to make the right choices about what drugs to take, what drugs to give your children, and when you should let your body do its thing.

— Ty Tashiro, author of The Science of Happily Ever After 


  • Howick, philosopher and clinical epidemiologist at Oxford, explains in easy-to-understand language how the human body works and why placebos, exercise, and meditation can be better (and certainly, cheaper) than pills...This is sound, commonsense advice in an era of what Howick calls 'too much medicine.'

    — Karen Springen, Booklist
  • Jeremy Howick reveals the hard science behind self-healing. Read this breakthrough book!

    — Deepak Chopra
  • Jeremy Howick knows placebos and how to make the subject understandable to the public. He's a philosopher who understands the big picture and a researcher who understands the details that make good science.

    — Ted Kaptchuk, professor of medicine and professor of global health and social medicine at Harvard Medical School
  • A timely book on a timeless problem of how body and mind interact to affect our health and well-being. Beautifully written by an international expert in the field, it challenges old habits of thinking and promises new ways of exploring what it means to live an integrated life.

    — Mark Williams, author of Mindfulness, professor of clinical psychology, and former director of the Oxford Mindfulness Center
  • I really enjoyed reading this book, and everyone who is willing to understand the variety of psychological factors involved in the process of healing would benefit from its reading. The interaction between doctors and their patients as well as the so-called placebo effects are beautifully described throughout the book for the nonspecialist.

    — Fabrizio Benedetti, MD, professor of physiology and neuroscience at University of Turin, Italy, and author of Placebo Effects
  • This fascinating book ranges over a broad range of evidence, from telling incidents, to huge comparative scientific studies with thousands of human subjects, and many things in between, all aimed at helping you lead a more healthy, vigorous, active and meaningful life. Engagingly written by an academic who can row his own boat (really!), who is as adept at yoga as he is at statistics, it is really a good read.

    — Daniel Moerman, emeritus professor of anthropology at University of Michigan-Dearborn
  • Jeremy Howick has written the handbook we were meant to be given at birth. At once engaging and empowering, he deftly combines pop culture with historical perspective and the best of integrative medicine into one powerful resource that we are all sure to benefit from. By challenging deeply engrained assumptions about our bodies, he provides us with a new paradigm for embracing our body's wisdom and capacity to heal itself.

    — Dr. Rana Awdish, author of In Shock
  • [Doctor You] offers a compelling solution to our unhealthy dependence: learning to tap into our body's ability to heal itself.
