Narrative Medicine - The Use of History and Story in the Healing


Lewis Mehl-Madrona's Narrative Medicine examines the foundations of the indigenous use of story as a healing modality.  Citing numerous case stories that demonstrate the profound power of narrative in healing, the author shows that when we learn to dialogue with disease, we come to understand the power of the story we tell about our illness and our possibilities for better health. 

This approach also includes examining our relationships to our family and extended community to find underlying disharmony that may need healing.  Mehl-Madrona points the way to a new model of medicine-a health care system that draws its effectiveness from listening to the healing wisdom of the past and also to the present-day voices of its patients.
