Dr Jeffrey Rediger is one of the leading medical authorities in the USA now. He is an Instructor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Medical Director for the McLean SouthEast Adult Psychiatric Programs. He has a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary and publishes in the fields of medicine, psychiatry and spirituality. He sought to understand the relationship between religion, science and modern physics. His work has been featured on radio and television, including The Oprah Winfrey Show and Dr. Oz.
Since 2003, Dr Rediger has been collecting medical evidence for recovery from illnesses that have been traditionally considered incurable. In his first book Cured: The Remarkable Science and Stories of Spontaneous Remission and Recovery, he analyses what people who had remarkably recovered have done to cure themselves and reveals the common denominators of people who have beaten the odds. He shows what we can all learn from these "Olympians of healing" and presents his four pillars of health to prevent illness. He also discusses how his Amish upbringing and years of toxic stress inform his identity and susceptibility to illness.
