Publisher's Synopsis

Understand how our immune system fights disease and enables the body to heal itself.

'Thrilling... Reads like the best kind of adventure story' STEPHEN FRY
'Excellent' TIM SPECTOR, Sunday Times bestselling author of Spoon-Fed

Here, Professor Daniel Davis charts the groundbreaking scientific quest to understand how it fights disease and enables the body to heal itself. He explains how it is affected by stress, sleep, age and our state of mind, and reveals how all of this knowledge is now unlocking a revolutionary approach to medicine and well-being.

The Beautiful Cure tells a dramatic story of detective work and discovery, of puzzles solved and of the mysteries that remain, and of lives sacrificed and saved.

'Wonderful... recounts in exceptionally clear and sympathetic prose how research into the immune system has resulted in a health revolution' HENRY MARSH
