“My body had grown a benign tumor. I had been reading Deepak Chopra’s ‘Quantum Healing’ about healing our bodies with our minds. When my doctor advised removal, I said, ‘Do you mind if I try to get rid of it with my mind?’. I went home and visualized scrubbing it away. In two weeks of doing that, the tumor shrunk by half. My doctor wigged out. That experience taught me what the mind-body connection is all about.”
