Product description

A "NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLERAS SEEN ON NATIONAL PUBLIC TELEVISION 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 practice 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. 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.

Review quote

"What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine--the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well."-- Christiane Northrup, M.D., OB/GYN physician and author of the "New York Times" bestsellers: "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" and "The Wisdom of Menopause" "In this book, Lissa Rankin clearly states what many health care providers (not to mention patients) already know: the way our society's physicians are trained, pres-sured, and overworked is in many ways inimical to the process of healing. In her life, her work, and her words, Dr. Rankin demonstrates a new way to combine the bril-liance of modern science with the wisdom of the heart. Anyone who will ever need a doctor, and certainly anyone who will ever be a doctor, will be enriched and enlight-ened by her ideas. Just reading Mind Over Medicine is a genuinely healing experience."-- Martha Beck, Ph.D., author of "Finding Your Way in a Wild New World" "Being my own inner physician for years means that I'm SUPER thrilled about Dr. Lissa Rankin's brilliant new book, Mind Over Medicine. She marries intuition with science and shows us all our healing SUPERPOWERS, and how to live our lives this way. And, Lissa's writing style is so exuberant and deep at the same time, it makes me feel like I can do handstands on the ocean!"-- SARK, author of 16 books, artist, and founder of PlanetSARK.com "Mind Over Medicine modernizes age old messages of wisdom and makes them easier to understand and apply to modern day lifestyles. This book contains much wisdom in easy-to-apply lessons we can all learn from."-- Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of "Love, Medicine & Miracles" "With humor, warmth, and compelling research, Dr. Lissa Rankin's Mind Over Medicine begins to heal the most critical fracture of our time--the break between our mind, bodies, and spirit. When it comes to our physical and emotional health, we need to tap into our own wisdom and find our voices
