Join Body & Soul this week as we journey to some remarkable places where people come seeking spiritual and physical health.

Before turning fourteen, Nathaniel Baldwin had undergone chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Although his doctors told him his leukemia was in remission, he was left debilitated. His quest for complete health led him and his family to the Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland. Nestled at the foot of the Alps, this clinic practices a treatment philosophy called biological medicine that puts health care back in the hands of patients.

One of the principal doctors at the Paracelsus Clinic, Dr. Rau spoke with series creator Gail Harris, about an approach to healthcare that integrates natural therapies from European, Ayurvedic and Asian medical traditions in order to treat the patient, not just the disease.

Finally, we journey to the ancient city of Tikal. Located deep in the Guatemalan jungle, it was the sacred home to the Mayan people, and remains one of the most powerful spiritual centers on earth.
