    DescriptionIn clinical trials, it's called the placebo effect. But patients treated with placebos don't just feel better. It's not just 'in their heads'. They can heal their bodies by healing their thoughts. For years, pioneers in the medical community have been extolling the virtues of the mind's power to heal the body. Their insights into the connection between our thoughts and emotions and our physiological states have long been dismissed as quackery, pseudoscience and shams, but today, there is scientific evidence that we can self-heal - and in some special cases cure - illness and disease. Western-trained integrative physician and obstetrics and gynaecology doctor Lissa Rankin, pored over hundreds of objectively evaluated, peer-reviewed studies from medical journals to find proof that the mind can heal the body. In this book, "Mind Over Medicine", she shares some of these extraordinary cases, as well as stories of hope and spontaneous healing from her own practice. She also guides you through the process of uncovering where things might be out of whack in your life - spiritually, creatively, environmentally, in your professional and personal relationships - so that you can create a customised treatment plan aimed at bolstering all of these health-promoting aspects of your life. By expanding your definition of health and healing, you can diagnose the real reason you're sick and suffering, as well as find new ways to improve your health and boost your vitality.

    Author Information
    Lissa Rankin, MD is an integrative medicine physician, author, speaker, artist and founder of the online health and wellness community OwningPink.com. Fueled by a passion to determine what really makes people healthy and what really predisposes them to illness, she immersed herself in medical literature to study how doctors might better care for patients. Her research led her to discover that patients have self-healing powers beyond our wildest imaginings, and science proves it. She is now leading a "Pink Medicine Revolution" to help patients heal themselves, while encouraging the health-care industry to embrace and facilitate, rather than resist, such miracles. lissarankin.com

    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, MD author of the New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause WOW! Just wow! That is how I feel about Lissa Rankin's work! Everything she says rings so true to me, and her voice, as a professional medical doctor, is just what is needed in today's drug dependent society. Bravo, Lissa for having the courage to speak out and share your truth. This world needs more like you! -- Anita Moorjani In her life, her work and her words, Dr Rankin demonstrates a new way to combine the brilliance of modern science with the wisdom of the heart. -- Martha Beck, PhD author of Finding Your Way in a Wild New World In this elegant and exhaustively researched book Dr Lissa Rankin offers compelling evidence both that human beings are far more than an assemblage of chemicals and electrical signalling, and that that the mind is the very best drug there is.
