While serving with the Peace Corps in Swaziland, Thomas Cowan encountered the work of Rudolf Steiner and Weston A. Price - two men whose ideas would fascinate and challenge him for decades to come. Both drawn to the art of healing and repelled by the way medicine was-and continues to be-practiced in the United States, Cowan returned from Swaziland, went to medical school, and established a practice. He remained intrigued by the work of Price and Steiner and, in particular, with Steiner's provocative claim that the heart is not a pump. Dr. Cowan believes that Steiner was correct that the heart is not a pump, and our understanding of heart disease is completely wrong. And this gross misunderstanding is the reason heart disease remains the most common cause of death worldwide.

An insightful quick read/listen. Great advice for a path to good health. And helps anyone keeping up with Dr. Cowan to better understand how he became who he is.

Loved it. Helped to expand the ideas of heart and the recent loss of my love to a cardiac arrest while on a run. He had a weird valve... but the parasympathetic was probably highly under active... thanks Cowan. You are the man.
