Mind over matter is a mantra that echoes across the medical world. But, what does it really mean? Can our thoughts and feelings really influence our ability to heal ourselves and perhaps prevent us from getting ill in the first place? Jo Marchant has written an intriguing book on the subject and I’ve just bought tickets to hear her speak about Cure at the Royal Institution on Thursday January 19. It promises to be a fascinating evening.
