Dr. Mimi Guarneri bridges the gap between heart and soul, fusing the latest in science and technology with the deeper realization that the human heart is more than a physical pump.
Dr. Guarneri takes the reader on a journey of the heart – exploring the emotional heart, able to be crushed by loss; the intelligent heart, with a nervous system all its own; and the spiritual heart, which yearns for a higher purpose. She skillfully weaves the science and drama of the heart’s unfolding. With groundbreaking new research and unparalleled experience, Dr. Guarneri reveals the heart as a multi-layered, complex organ and explores the new science that indicates the heart acts as a powerhouse of its own, possessing intelligence, memory, and decision-making abilities that are separate from the mind. Her book includes a poignant collection of stories from heart patients who have benefited from integrative medicine approaches.
The Heart Speaks and her clinical work have been featured on NBC Today and PBS’s To the Contrary and Full Focus. Her work was also featured in a two-part PBS documentary, The New Medicine. Dr. Guarneri is regularly quoted in national publications such as the Yoga Journal, Body+Soul, Trustee magazine and WebMD.
"Like all genuine healers throughout history, Dr. Mimi Guarneri knows the power of story to heal, to make whole. She is a physician of the heart, in all its many meanings. Good medicine cures. Great medicine heals. The brand of medicine in The Heart Speaks does both."
