Are there laws behind spontaneous remission?

Valerie Minard, New Jersey

In 2008,Claire Haser was diagnosed with cancer and told it would be fatal. Although in the past, she had used traditional medicine, she decided to skip the recommended surgery and chemotherapy. Instead, she decided that what she really needed to do was “change her relationship with fear.” In the process, she did some deep soul searching. Five years later, when she went back to the doctor for some unrelated tests, she discovered that she was cancer-free.

Tim Mitchinson, Illinois

Just then, the man threw a stick between the two. The snake recoiled, and the bird flew off. Through the years, that story has continued to hold a lesson for me.

"Casablanca”, la famosa película protagonizada por Humphrey Bogart e Ingrid Bergman en 1942, que narra un drama romántico en la ciudad marroquí de Casablanca, no se rodó en esa ciudad.

Muchos preguntaron: "¿Dónde está el Café de Rick?”. "¿Dónde tocaba Sam el piano?”.

Evidence-based medicine should consider all the evidence

While researching her New York Times bestselling book “The Gratitude Diaries,” author Janice Kaplan came up with what she described during a recent talk in San Francisco as her “big plan” for maintaining an attitude of gratitude as a way to get rid of her next migraine headache.

“Well, there was sort of a problem,” said the former Parade Editor-In-Chief, “which is that I never got another migraine headache while I was writing the book.”

Apparently gratitude works in both preventative and curative ways.
