Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin

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.

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.

Is there scientific proof we can heal ourselves? Lissa Rankin, MD at TEDxAmericanRiviera 2012

About Lissa Rankin, MD:
New age gurus suggest that we can heal ourselves by simply changing our minds, but is this concept grounded in cold, hard science? Lissa Rankin, MD explores the scientific literature, reviewing case studies of spontaneous remission, as well as placebo and nocebo effect data, to prove that our thoughts powerfully affect our physiology when we believe we can get well.



TEDxFiDiWomen – Lissa Rankin – The Shocking Truth About Your Health

Lissa Rankin, MD is an OB/GYN physician, author, keynote speaker, consultant to health care visionaries, professional artist, and founder of the women’s health and wellness community OwningPink.com. Discouraged by the broken, patriarchal health care system, she left her medical practice in 2007 only to realize that you can quit your job, but you can’t quit your calling. This epiphany launched her on a journey of discovery that led her to become a leader in the field of mind/body medicine, which she blogs about at OwningPink.com and is writing about in her third book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof You Can Heal Yourself (Hay House, 2013).

She teaches both patients and health care professionals how to make the body ripe for miracles by healing the mind and being healthy in all aspects of life, not just by promoting healthy behaviors like good nutrition, exercise, and adequate sleep, but by encouraging health and authenticity in relationships, work, creative expression, spirituality, sexuality, finances, and living environment. She is leading a revolution to feminize how health care is received and delivered by encouraging collaboration, fostering self-healing, reconnecting health care and spirituality, empowering patients to tap into the mind’s power to heal the body, and encouraging women not to settle for being merely well, but to strive for living vital, joyful, authentic lives full of “mojo.”

When not spreading the word, she chills out, paints, does yoga, and hikes in Marin County, CA with her husband and daughter.

Power vs. Force, The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior: An Anatomy of Consciousness by David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. [Revised & Updated,May 31, 2013]]

This Author’s Official Revised Edition includes several crucial updates since the original publication, including a more thorough explanation of the muscle-testing technique as well as changes to the text made by Dr. Hawkins as he read the book for an audio recording in 2006. David R. Hawkins details how anyone may resolve the most crucial of all human dilemmas: how to instantly determine the truth or falsehood of any statement or supposed fact. Dr. Hawkins, who worked as a “healing psychiatrist” during his long and distinguished career, uses theoretical concepts from particle physics, nonlinear dynamics, and chaos theory to support his study of human behavior. This is a fascinating work that will intrigue readers from all walks of life!

From the Author of Power vs. Force:

All human endeavors have the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience. To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: Morality, Philosophy, Psychology, and so on. Regardless of what branch of inquiry one starts from—philosophy, political theory, theology—all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consciousness. To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed. Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious. If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself.

Transcending the Levels of Consciousness by David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D.

Prior works by the author established a new clinical science of TRUTH based on research into the nature of consciousness itself and, for the first time, delineated the means by which truth can be differentiated from falsehood.

Numerous study groups arose worldwide to investigate the unique value of this new spiritual science and its numerous applications in all areas of human life, especially in relation to spiritual evolution.

The previous books have been valued by spiritual devotees for they present a subjective experiential, as well as theoretical, framework by which to seek enlightenment and advance one’s own level of consciousness.

The preceding volumes in this series provide clarity by recontextualization of the world’s spiritual literature and experience. This book is a practical “how to” guide devoted to the techniques and information that facilitate actual inner transformation and liberation from the limitations of the ego.

The information provided is a distillation of professional clinical knowledge derived from 50 years’ experience in psychiatry, psychology, psychoanalysis, and as a consultant to Protestant and Catholic ministries, Zen monasteries, and spiritual communities and groups along with extensive personal transformative and inner subjective transcendence of the levels described.
Dr. Hawkins writes from all those levels simultaneously and is dedicated to the student’s own evolution of consciousness to the state of Enlightenment itself.

David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the Institute for Advanced Spiritual Research, is an internationally known author, spiritual teacher, and authority within the fields of consciousness research and spirituality. His published works and recorded lectures have been widely recognized as unique in that a very advanced state of spiritual awareness occurred in an individual with a scientific and clinical background who was later able to explain the unusual phenomenon in a clear and comprehensible manner.

Dr. Hawkins writes and teaches from the unique perspective of an experienced clinician, scientist, and mystic. He has been knighted and honored worldwide with many titles. In the Far East, he is a recognized “Teacher of the Way to Enlightenment.” (“Tae Ryoung Sun Kak Dosa”) Dr. Hawkins has lectured at well-known universities worldwide and to spiritual groups from Westminster Abbey and Notre Dame to Catholic, Protestant, and Buddhist monasteries. His life is devoted to the spiritual evolution of mankind.
