Can animals help you heal?

December 1, 201541 min
You might not believe just how healing a bond with animals can be. Dr. Bernie Siegel has a new book on the subject -- Love, Animals & Miracles -- and you’ll be amused and amazed by his stories. The importance of having a pet depends on the quantity and quality of your other relationships. If you’re isolated, a pet can literally mean the difference between life and death. Watching pets die gave Bernie’s kids a reverence for life. And I dare you not to be touched by Bernie's account of what happened when someone put a fish and a turtle in the same tank.
