Die etwas andere Art, Menschen zu heilen.

Excerpts from the Introduction
“This book, House Calls, is a ‘visitor’s kit’ that was originally designed for visiting hospital patients. However, now I realize that the information can be just as useful in visiting friends in nursing homes, prisons, or any place where people may be suffering and wishing they were elsewhere.
“If you share my concern that hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, etc., are not ideal environments for people of any kind, I suggest that you share the healing behaviors you practice with patients and friends with every other patient, visitor, and employee of these institutions to boost the health of the whole environment.

Excerpts from the Introduction
“When a dream takes hold of you, what can you do? You can run with it, let it run your life, or let it go and think for the rest of your life about what might have been.
“Gesundheit! Institute is the dream of a growing number of people, an experiment in holistic medical care based on the belief that one cannot separate the health of the individual from the health of the family, the community, and the world. We have taken the most expensive service in America, medical care, and given it away for free. We are now building a facility in West Virginia that embodies this philosophy: a free, home-style hospital and health center, open to anyone from anywhere. We want this center to be a health care model, not necessarily to be copied by others but to stimulate caregivers and hospitals to develop an ideal medical approach for their communities.

"Clownin' Kabul"

Directed by Italian filmmakers Enzo Balestrieri and Stefan Moser in their first collaboration.

This hour-long film documents the 5-week medical and laughter-relief mission of more than 20 clown-doctors in Afghanistan following the 2001 U.S. lead war.

"Watching this incredible 'Smile Mission' to help the children of war-ravaged Afghanistan is sure to move the most hardened viewer to tears. . . . The camera registers contrasts between their bright costumes and the ashen, barren lands; between the children's delighted responses and the clowns' shock at the suffering they witness, with a great sense of drama. The record 10-minute standing ovation at the Venice Festival screening affirms that laughter is universal, and joy is a human right."

Meet Patch Adams, the real person behind the hit movie "Patch Adams," starring Robin Williams.
