Recovery: The Lost Art of Convalescence (excerpts) / Fund Drive

As part of the KGNU Fund Drive, this episode of How on Earth features excerpts of Beth Bennett’s interview of Dr. Gavin Francis about his book Recovery: The Lost Art of Convalescence. We explore the difference between sickness and health, and the gap between them: Recovery. Based on decades of treating disease and injury, Dr Francis proposes a more active role of the individual in their recovery.  We also talk about the importance of self-care and compassion, the role of the environment we create for ourselves, and the importance of caregivers.
