Spontaneous Remission

Some healthcare professionals have projected how long a specific patient will live based, of course, on large sample studies of relevant data. Some patients die as predicted; some die sooner than predicted; and some out-live the predictions by years and years. What makes the difference? Apparently the patient’s own belief about what will happen. Caryle Hirshberg and Marc Barash, researchers at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, reportedly assembled the largest database on spontaneous remission in the world. One would think many publishers would be excited to publish their book entitles Remarkable Recovery: What Extraordinary Healings Tell Us About Getting Well and Staying Well. Not so. They reported that it took them several years to find a publisher willing to publish their book. Hmmm.
