Lectures curated around The Science of Healing with Dr. Esther Sternberg that introduces viewers to the way the brain helps the body heal, both physically and emotionally. Science is beginning to understand the brain’s function in healing, a role the ancient Greeks understood and practiced. The Science of Healing follows Dr. Sternberg to a tiny village in Greece, where her personal experience of the power of place in healing inspired the research that led to this program. She explores ruins of ancient Greek healing temples, and visits cutting edge science labs to uncover the source of her healing. In the course of her journey we learn more about the scientific basis of the mind-body connection, and the role of environment and emotion in the healing process. Esther M. Sternberg M.D. is internationally recognized for her discoveries in brain-immune interactions and the effects of the brain’s stress response on health: the science of the mind-body interaction.
