If you're sick and can afford it, you call your doctor. You'll (eventually) be treated with all the high-tech aspects of modern doctoring, but you probably will be one of many patients the doctor sees that day and the process will be largely impersonal. Narrative Medicine restores the role of the patient in their own healing process, and proposes a new idea of medicine, one that includes thousands of years of indigenous healing knowledge. He includes case histories, shamanism, quantum physics, and critical theory but Lewis Mehl-Madrona argues that people are primarily are made of stories. Any medicinal practice that doesn't account for that is lacking a vital aspect.(This book may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear.)
