Summary: "A fine resource for medical students, doctors, and medical educators."--Bernie Siegel, M.D. "The path one takes from being a doctor to embracing the fullness of our heritage as healers always leads right back to our own hearts. This book describes the journeys and the terrain in all its many facets."--Christiane Northrup, M.D., author, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom "A valuable map of the complex medical revolution that is slowly affecting us all."--David Hess, coauthor, Women Confront Cancer W ...show morehy would a successful physician who has undergone seven years of rigorous Western medical training learn to practice homeopathy or Chinese medicine? From Doctor to Healer answers this question as it traces the transformational journeys of physicians who move across the philosophical spectrum of American medicine from doctor to healer. Robbie Davis-Floyd and Gloria St. John conducted extensive interviews to discover how and why physicians make the move to alternative medicine, what sparks this shift, and what beliefs they abandon or embrace in the process. After outlining the basic models of American health care--the technocratic, humanistic, and holistic paradigms--the authors follow the thoughts and experiences of forty physicians as they expand their horizons in order to offer more effective patient care. The book focuses on the radical shift from one end of the spectrum to the other--from the technocratic approach to holism--made by most of the interviewees. Because many American physicians resist such a drastic change, the authors also address the less radical transition to humanism--a movement toward compassionate care arising from within the medical system. Robbie Davis-Floyd is a Research Fellow at the University of Texas, Austin, and a medical anthropologist. She is the author of Birth as an American Rite of Passage and coeditor of Childbirth and Authoritative Knowledge: Cross-Cultural Perspectives, and Cyborg Babies: From Techno-Sex to Techno-Tots. Gloria St. John has been involved in the business end of health care for twenty-five years and has served as Executive Director of the MetaPhysicians. She is the editor of a homeopathic journal and is presently studying homeopathy. ...show less
