Silver Caduceus Health Quotes

I am convinced that unconditional love is the most powerful known stimulant of the immune system. If I told patients to raise their blood levels of immune globulins or killer T cells, no one would know how. But if I can teach them to love themselves and others fully, the same changes happen automatically. The truth is: love heals. (Bernie Siegel, MD)

Diseases can be our spiritual flat tires - disruptions in our lives that seem to be disasters at the time but end by redirecting our lives in a meaningful way. (Bernie Siegel, MD)

One's attitude towards oneself is the single most important factor in healing and staying well. (Bernie Siegel, MD)

I tell people they should create a healing interval for themselves frequently during the day, in which they might... feel that they are loved and can give love to others.
(Bernie Siegel, MD, Caduceus magazine, Spring 1990, p.4)

Regimen [i.e. healthy lifestyle] is better than physic [i.e. medicine]. Everyone should be his own physician. We ought to assist, and not to force nature. (Voltaire)

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. (Thomas Edison)

It's not about curing the disease, but healing the life; then the physical benefits come. (Bernie Siegel, MD)

People are not health conscious. They are disease conscious. Everything should be made secondary for the endless search for health. We are in a race between education and catastrophe. (Dr Keki Sidhwa)

The best doctors in the world are Doctor Diet, Doctor Quiet, and Doctor Merryman. (Jonathan Swift)

When people take responsibility for their illnesses, they can change the quality of their lives and often live a lot longer than expected.
(Bernie Siegel, MD, Caduceus magazine, Spring 1990, p.5)

DNA that is also a compassionate man

If the findings on emotions and health mean anything, it is that medical care that neglects how people feel as they battle a chronic or severe disease is no longer adequate. It is time for medicine to take more methodical advantage of the link between emotion and health. What is now the exception could – and should – be part of the mainstream, so that a more caring medicine is available to us all. At the least it would make medicine more humane. And, for some, it could speed the course of recovery. “Compassion,” as one patient put it in an open letter to his surgeon, “is not mere hand holding. It is good medicine.”
(Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence, p.185)
