The original title of the book: Human Heart, Cosmic Heart: A Doctor s Quest to Understand, Treat, and Prevent Cardiovascular Disease

Thomas Cowan was a 20-year-old Duke grad bright, skeptical, and already disillusioned with industrial capitalism when he joined the Peace Corps in the mid-1970s for a two-year tour in Swaziland. There, he 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 in New Hampshire and, later, San Francisco. For years, as he raised his three children, suffered the setback of divorce, and struggled with a heart condition, 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. Determined to practice medicine in a way that promoted healing rather than compounded ailments, Cowan dedicated himself to understanding whether Steiner s claim could possibly be true. And if Steiner was correct, what, then, is the heart? What is its true role in the human body?

In this deeply personal, rigorous, and riveting account, Dr. Cowan offers up a daring claim: Not only was Steiner correct that the heart is not a pump, but our understanding of heart disease with its origins in the blood vessels is completely wrong. And this gross misunderstanding, with its attendant medications and risky surgeries, is the reason heart disease remains the most common cause of death worldwide.

In Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, Dr. Thomas Cowan presents a new way of understanding the body s most central organ. He offers a new look at what it means to be human and how we can best care for ourselves and one another."

    Great book. My wife bought it for me after I had a heart attack, and a couple of stents fitted a few months ago at the age of 52. If, like me, you're left feeling grateful to the doctors but unfit, old, tired and generally depressed and confused, this book will help and fascinate in equal measure. There's nothing else like it.

    This is a most encouraging book, written by a man after my own heart. Like me he questions anything accepted by established science, that seems unlikely.

    Highly recommendable if you are interested in new ways to view the heart and what causes heart disease. Contains many eye openers and puts question marks with current treatment options without dismissing their value. Offers a bridge between treating and understanding the heart and heart disease in an allopathic way and treating the human who is suffering from heart disease, as well as treating the terrain they operate in. Never moralistic, or dismissing medical progress. I think a must read for those suffering from heart problems, those who endeavour to treat them and those who simply have an interest in the human heart.
