This book has sadly sat on my shelf for over 15 years. I finally picked it up and boy am I ever glad I did. The author provides an easy to read book about the importance of love and especially intimacy on the power of healing. It is more than just feeling loved that contributes to healing, it is about having intimate connections that allow you to be your true self. He touches on many different connections - marriage, religion, counseling, and self. Great read!

I loved this book. The intimacy between two human beings has the power to heal. By the same token, if a person has no real connection to another caring person, sickness and death are much closer. Trying to quantify the health benefit of having close, loving relationships is a tough task. This book did it. This book shows to me, without a doubt, that having a person who really loves you, and who shows it, is the best medicine, and laughter is a distant second.

I'm giving this book five stars because of how important I think the message is. Devaluing love and relationships within a culture has disastrous consequences for both our emotional and physical health.

We all know that intimacy improves the quality of our lives. Yet most people don't realize how much it can increase the quality of our lives -- our survival.This book helped me to understand my relationship with myself and with God. I think if more for understanding all kinds of relationship that we have.

Dean Ornish explains how it isn't just what we eat and how much we exercise, but who we love and how. And this is from a heart doctor whose first books were about nutrition! Very good.
