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.
Joining Julie Ann on ConsciousSHIFT, Lissa Rankin will share her new book, Mind Over Medicine, and will share with us how this process works, plus practical techniques you can use to activate the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms, while shutting off the processes that predispose to illness.
We'll explore where you might be making unhealthy choices, not just in your diet, exercise program, and sleep habits, but in your relationships, your professional life, your creative life, your spiritual life, and more- so that you can create a customized treatment plan “The Prescription” aimed at bolstering all of these health-promoting aspects of your life.
Lissa Rankin, MD is a mind-body medicine physician, founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute training program for physicians and other health care providers, and the New York Times bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself.
She is on a grass roots mission to put the "care" back in health care, and to heal our broken health care system - one doctor and one patient at a time.
Join Lissa and Julie Ann on ConsciousSHIFT to discover the remarkable scientific proof that you can prevent or even reverse diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic pain, even cancer.
