MEDICINE FOR MODERNS: The New Science of Psychosomatic Medicine

With many acknowledgments to the pioneer investigator in the field, Dr. Dunbar (Mind and Body- Random House- see report P. 415)- this provides a popular presentation of the subject. It has neither the psychological penetration nor the fascination the Dunbar book, is a more obvious and superficial overall, based on available conclusion. How various emotions,- fear, love, sex,- induce physical change; how childhood conflict carry over into later life; and largely- the emotional factors in physical disturbances heart, colon, blood pressure and hypertension, digestive disorders, diabetic conditions such specifics as asthma, allergies, migraines, etc. The therapies which may be from the older methods of analysis to the newer, shorter oures, drug the possibilities this field presents to the doctor and to the patient also. For those seriously and intellectually interested, the Dunbar book provides greater reward. This for the more casual layman.
