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
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.

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!
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.
Love the humor. Thank you Lissa!
