Is there Proof?
While I feel that one may need to "believe" before they can see . . . the highly regarded Dr. Shamini Jain is a psychologist, scientist, and social entrepreneur that has taken on one of the most challenging questions of our time: "Is the ability to heal ourselves science fiction, or actually science-based?"
While I have not met Shamini in person, I believe her work to be remarkably important. Whether you are a "believer" or "non-believer" I would highly recommend reading through her website and the important research she has been involved with.
She is the Founder and Director of the Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI; www.CHI.is), a collaborative accelerator that connects scientists, health practitioners, innovators, and social entrepreneurs to forward the science and practice of healing.
Shamini has conducted numerous clinical trials and basic science research in the areas of integrative medicine and psychoneuroimmunology. A complete list of her publications can be found here through this Google Scholar link.
Below are a few highlighted scientific publications (Click on the title of the article to access the PDF) that can additionally be found and downloaded on her website.
