"Life is one great experiment, and it can be joyful," Bernie Siegel, M.D.

On June 12, 1989, Dr. Bernie Siegel graced the cover of the New Yorker. Entitled, "Doctor Love...Bernie Siegel and his controversial theories of self-healing."

Einstein said, "Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." Dr. Siegel (who refers to be called Bernie) is a pioneer in the Mind-Body Healing relationship and revolutionized the way doctors and patients harnessed the power of the mind to heal.  A retired general and pediatric surgeon, New York Times Best-Selling Author, founder of the ECap (a form of individual and group therapy for cancer patients), Bernie challenged conventional medical practices when experiencing patients who defied the odds of healing, getting well, and living fulfilling lives.

One patient said to Bernie, "You're a nice guy...I feel better seeing you but I cannot take you home." This experience got Bernie thinking that he could do more as doctor to help people between office visits. 

In this episode, Bernie shares the inspiration he's given to tens of millions of people over the years spanning over 4 decades. He talks about an experience interpreting a drawing with Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, the importance of love, how doctor and patient work together as a team, the one question to ask yourself when struggling.

As always...listen, take what resonates, and go beyond!

In Love and Healing,

Dr. Deb
