After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, journalist and filmmaker Shannon Harvey travelled the world in search of the missing link in healthcare. From interviewing world-leading scientists to meeting people with remarkable stories of recovery from severe back pain, heart disease, infertility, cancer and multiple sclerosis, this documentary delves into the link between our mind and body.
The film includes an internationally recognized lineup of scientists, including Dr. Herbert Benson; researchers, including Dr. Dean Ornish; writers, including Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn; and renowned medical doctors, including Dr. Andrew Weil.
The film also features compelling true stories of recovery such as Professor George Jelinek, a Professor of Emergency Medicine who has recovered from multiple sclerosis, and Dr. Ian Gawler who recovered from an aggressive bone cancer against the odds. The Connection is a film that proves we have more influence on our health outcomes than we ever thought possible.
