The Brain’s Way of Healing shows that the brain has powerful natural mechanisms to repair and rebalance itself following damage or disease, and gives a host of exercises, tools and techniques to enable anyone to activate these mechanisms. The author explains how people can use their own sensory receptors—eyes, ears, skin, and even sense of smell—to shift into a state of heightened activity in the brain’s healing system. Doidge invites us to think about the brain as if we had a small generator in our head, receiving energy from sensory pathways to charge up its batteries and run our life programs. He argues that we tend to use only a small portion of our brains’ capacity as most of it remains ‘unvocalized’ or unused; yet enhancing this can bring us greater joy and creativity.
