Discover an eye-opening and provocative new way to look at our health based on the latest groundbreaking discoveries in the science of compassion, kindness and human connection.

Columbia University doctor Kelli Harding never intended to explore the invisible factors behind our health. But then there were the rabbits. In 1978 a seemingly straightforward study designed to establish the relationship between high cholesterol and heart health in rabbits discovered that kindness – in the form of a particularly nurturing researcher – made the difference between a heart attack and a healthy heart. As Dr Harding reveals in this eye-opening book, the rabbits were just the beginning of a much larger story. What truly makes us sick – and what can make us healthy? Groundbreaking research shows that love, friendship, community, life’s purpose, our environment, and kindness can have a far greater impact on our health than anything that happens in the doctor’s office. With engaging stories and compelling evidence, Dr Harding gives you a new model to take charge of your health and happiness.
