Cured – Dr Jeff Rediger
Jeff Rediger is a psychologist and in this book he explores stories of spontaneous healing and recovery. It’s fertile ground for investigation and also of course the tales where people have been ‘cured’ are fascinating as we try and unravel what is actually behind the ‘healing’. There are several missed opportunities to posit opposing ideas and theories for some of the instances of someone being cured, and also to tell the stories of those who have not been cured, but his work on the immune system and its importance in healing is interesting.
As an additional source of material there is a great episode of Russel Brand’s podcast Under the Skin in which he interviews Derren Brown about Derren’s own investigation into psychic healers. You can find the podcast on YouTube as well as the usual channels.
