Product Description

We've been led to believe that when we get sick, it's our genetics. Or it's just bad luck—and doctors alone hold the keys to optimal health. For years, Lissa Rankin, M.D., believed the same. But when her own health started to suffer, and she turned to Western medical treatments, she found that they not only failed to help; they made her worse. So she decided to take matters into her own hands.

Through her research, Dr. Rankin discovered that the health care she had been taught to practise was missing something crucial: a recognition of the body's innate ability to self-repair and an appreciation for how we can control these self-healing mechanisms with the power of the mind. In an attempt to better understand this phenomenon, she explored peer-reviewed medical literature and found evidence that the medical establishment had been proving that the body can heal itself for over 50 years.

Using extraordinary cases of spontaneous healing, Dr. Rankin shows how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs can alter the body's physiology. She lays out the scientific data proving that loneliness, pessimism, depression, fear and anxiety damage the body, while intimate relationships, gratitude, meditation, sex, and authentic self-expression flip on the body's self-healing processes.

You'll be introduced to a radical new wellness model based on Dr. Rankin's scientific findings. Her unique six-step program will help you uncover where things might be out of whack in your life—spiritually, creatively, environmentally, nutritionally, and in your professional and personal relationships—so that you can create a customised treatment plan aimed at bolstering these health-promoting pieces of your life. You'll learn how to listen to your body's 'whispers' before they turn to life-threatening 'screams' that can be prevented with proper self-care, and you'll learn how to trust your inner guidance when making decisions about your health and your life.

By the time you finish Mind Over Medicine, you'll have made your own Diagnosis, written your own Prescription, and created a clear action plan designed to help you make your body ripe for miracles.

About the Author

Lissa Rankin, M.D., is a mind-body medicine physician, author, speaker, artist, and blogger at LissaRankin.com. Passionate about what makes people healthy and what predisposes them to illness, she studies how doctors might better care for patients and how patients might better care for themselves. She is on a mission to heal health care, help patients play a more active role in healing themselves, and encourage the health-care industry to embrace and facilitate, rather than resist, such miracles. She trains physicians and other healing professionals, and she empowers others at I Can Do It events, TEDx conferences, health conferences, hospitals, and on her popular blog. When not spreading the word, she paints, practices yoga, and hikes in Marin County, CA with her husband and daughter.

      A much needed book on why we need more when we are sick than just being given a pill and going back to work.
