Simply put, it's the practice of harnessing the anti-inflammatory power of our minds to support autoimmune health. It's realizing that some thoughts and behaviors ramp up inflammation and others tone it down. This book is a roadmap to doing less of the former and more of the latter.

A mechanic fixes individual parts so that the whole can be restored to function. An artist focuses on the whole and draws on subtler interconnections. Western medicine is best suited to problems of acute care, such as broken bones and heart attacks - areas that require a mechanistic understanding of how the human body works. Autoimmune disease demands an artistic mechanic, working holistically to solve problems. In a nation facing an autoimmune epidemic, Eileen Laird's Healing Mindset offers a comprehensive set of practical tools for patients and practitioners to begin the artist's journey towards healing.
