About this product
- DescriptionTelepathy, reincarnation, voodoo, and witchcraft are just a few examples of phemena w defined as pararmal activity. But just because these marvels lie beyond the reach of current scientific explanation does t mean that future developments will t bring understanding. For instance, some scientists w believe that the mysterious symptoms, such as hallucinations and spasms, of the accused witches in Salem may actually have been reactions to a type of poison. And a hundred years ago, who would have thought that acupuncture could be scientifically explained, let alone covered by most mainstream insurance companies? Citing case studies and analyses from respected medical journals, Dr. Robert Bobrow -- an accomplished physician and clinical associate professor at Stony Brook University -- investigates numerous instances that do t fit into the rmal lexicon of medical diagses. He argues that by simply dismissing unexplainable phemena we may be missing valuable opportunities to advance science. Although The Witch in the Waiting Room provides eugh data and research to satisfy the scientific community, Dr. Bobrow's fluid writing style and straightforward analyses will engage the raft of curious lay readers who will be drawn to this book.
