Review

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

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 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.

In the final section of the book, 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 customized 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.

Format: Hardcover
More and more, books about how our mind, our thoughts, our emotions impact our health are everywhere. I believe this is a testament to a growing awareness in the world that our health systems are in need of their own prescription. I believe MIND OVER MEDICINE pour fire on this awareness, or better yet, this revolution. In her book, Dr. Rankin weaves solid scientific facts into a wonderfully written book - one I was unable to put down. Through the journey of MIND OVER MEDICINE, my mind expanded as did my understanding of my responsibility to my own health. My wish is that everyone, whether you are ill, healthy, doctors, health care practitioners or all kinds - and all those in between read this book. I believe Dr. Rankin beautifully blends her love for writing, research, and healing in this revolutionary book. It is a must read!

First, I must say that I did believe in the power of the mind over the body before starting reading this book. BUT, Lissa Rankin being a doctor and having went through medical school writes this book for the skeptics. She approches the subject with an great attitude, the attitude of someone who had her life changed by her great amount of research and her discoveries.

This book is filled with scientific evidence of the incredible power of the mind. It's not just personal testimonies as some might think, it's actual research results; researches conducted by renowned physicians and professors all over America.

The last part of the book is the actual method the author used to heal herself and now her patients. It's divided in different steps that are easy to follow for anyone who wants to give it a try. Not only does the author insist on the fact that we have control over our body, but she gives exercices and relaxation methods that can be used to decrease the stress response in our body.

A great read! I highly recommend it to everyone!

I really enjoyed this book. I am on a healing journey and this book just reaffirms for me, that healing is possible if you put your life in order and get all of your "ducks lined up".
Kudos to Lissa for putting this out there and hopefully her work will start the ball rolling for changes in the health care system. It is broken. No doubt about it. Pharmaceuticals are the "name of the game" these days. It is easier for our doctors to get out the prescription pad and treat symptoms with toxic drugs rather than try to educate patients on AVOIDING THE SYMPTOMS IN THE FIRST PLACE with healthy lifestyles, spirituality, stress reduction etc. And the patients are equally to blame. Eat, drink and be merry and once sick from toxic overload, get a drug from the doc to make the aches and pains go away. It's a cycle that needs to stop.
Great reading here.

This book has it all - a scientific evidence basis, personal stories, self diagnosic and treatment tools. It focuses on the forgotten component of illness - emotions and their impact. It empowers those who can easily become victims of disease to actively partner with care providers. Yet, it respects and endorses traditional medical interventions, especially for more serious disease.

Lissa Rankin does a great job of putting together evidence from medicine, science, psychology and personal growth and development to guide us in taking a look at all aspects of our life and then formulating an action plan for our own vision of ideal health.

I truly like her writing, to the point, clear and meaningful. This book confirms what I believe all along. I would recommend this book to anyone who is willing to accept the challenge of taking responsibility for the majority of their illnesses and how they can really take part in their own healing. How much do we really want to be healthy and how much we can contribute to it as much as we want to. She also includes great ideas and a special program that anyone can follow.
Love the humor. Thank you Lissa!
