Unconditional love is the most powerful stimulant of the immune system.”

When I was diagnosed with cancer in 2016, my prognosis was extremely grim. I was given a 10 to 30% chance of surviving, which you could also say is a 70 to 90% chance of dying. Thankfully, soon after I was diagnosed, I read Dr. Bernie Siegel’s book, Love, Medicine & Miracles, and I began affirming that there was a 100% chance that I would be in the 10 to 30% that survived.

Bernie is an expert in mind-body connection. He’s been sharing for decades the mind’s ability to heal the body and our ability to heal ourselves, and what was once seen as kind of woo-woo is now more backed by science than ever before. 

In today’s conversation, Bernie shares deep wisdom about the problems with our perceptions around health and wellness, the power we all have to heal ourselves and change our lives, and the unique healing power of love.


  • Why self-induced cures rarely make it into conventional medical literature – and what we miss out on when we ignore powerful stories of hope and survival.
  • How adopting the survival personality helped cancer patients who were told they had no chance of living outlive horrific prognoses – and how our bodies do what we tell them to. 
  • The unique mental traits that apply to all survivors of major illness – and how you can cultivate them to live a longer, happier life.

    I read Dr. Bernie’s book, Love, Medicine and Miracles* during a very bleak time in my life. I have bought several copies through the years to give to people facing illness, cancer, end of life,;etc. i just ordered another but this time for my daughter who was just diagnosed with TNBC. Today I found this podcast. God is so good; “His Grace endure the forever”. He has used Dr. Bernie to bring so much healing to so many. Thank you for sharing this podcast with all of us. It has blessed me today, and my daughter will be hearing it later today.
