Dermatology has made remarkable strides in recent decades, with the advent of high-tech aids such as lasers and cryosurgery and new wonder drugs such as steroids and vitamin A derivatives; thus, many skin sufferers have been cured by their physicians.
Yet many have not. If you have brought your persistent eczema, your stubborn warts, your psoriasis or other distressing skin ailment, or even your recurrent herpes to specialists and superspecialists, and if all the creams, lotions, and medications have failed to help, you must wonder if there is something else -- and ardently hope that there is. This is exactly what Drs. Grossbart and Sherman have addressed in Skin Deep: A Mind/Body Program for Healthy Skin.

The authorsGrossbart is a clinical psychologist and Sherman a medical science writerapply "a principle both ancient and often forgotten: The mind and body are one." In addition to suggesting a visit to a dermatologist, they recommend a combination of techniques, including relaxation, imaging, hypnosis and psychotherapy, to help readers understand hidden conflicts that may cause or intensify their skin problems. They also illuminate the complex role that long-term skin problems, such as herpes, warts or psoriasis, play in the lives of those afflicted. This should be required reading for anyone suffering with a skin problem. The authors do an excellent job translating psychological jargon.

"They eyes are windows to the soul, a poet has said. Its truth has seldom been disproven. The skin, our most extensive organ, also speaks volumes about that is happening within the body and often cries out for attention in various manifestations." -- Nutrition Health Review
