Think you know what thought is? What about stress? Does positive thinking improve our health, our wealth, our well-being?
Dr Caroline Leaf, a prolific and popular Christian author, teaches that “75 to 98 percent of mental, physical, and behavioural illness comes from ones thought life”, that “stress is a direct result of toxic thinking”, and “we have two choices, we can let our thoughts become toxic and poisonous or we can detox our negative thoughts which will improve our emotional wholeness and even recover our physical health.”
But medicine, psychology and cognitive neuroscience show otherwise. Using his twenty years experience in clinical medicine, and backed up by three hundred scientific papers and medical textbooks, Dr Pitt highlights the modern scientific approach to thought and stress, and provides a new perspective on Dr Leaf’s teaching, grounded in the most up-to-date scientific evidence available.
