Publisher Comments:

Why do we feel the way we feel? How do our thoughts and emotions affect our health? Are our bodies and minds distinct from each other or do they function together as parts of an interconnected system?

In her groundbreaking book Molecules of Emotion, Candace Pert provides startling and decisive answers to these and other challenging questions that scientists and philosophers have pondered for centuries.

Her pioneering research on how the chemicals inside our bodies form a dynamic information network, linking mind and body, is not only provocative, it is revolutionary. By establishing the biomolecular basis for our emotions and explaining these new scientific developments in a clear and accessible way, Pert empowers us to understand ourselves, our feelings, and the connection between our minds and our bodies — body-minds — in ways we could never possibly have imagined before.

Molecules of Emotion is a landmark work, full of insight and wisdom and possessing that rare power to change the way we see the world and ourselves.

Synopsis:

Dr. Pert explains the groundbreaking experiments that prove that the mind and the body are not two separate entities, but are one interconnected information system--the bodymind.

Margie, November 10, 2011 (view all comments by Margie)
My accupuncturist recommended this book to me due to continuing problems with my shoulder/arm after a fall. Although there were actual physical problems still with my shoulder/arm, this is an interesting read concerning the mind/body connection and how thoughts and emotions can affect your physical health. You may get discouraged during the book with all the technical and scientific jargon concerning peptides, neuropeptides (reminded me of watching Star Trek and hearing all those terms for the first time), etc., but slog through it and you will find glimmers of helpful information. I actually bought another of her books so, yes, I did find useful information.
