“In this book, Lissa Rankin clearly states what many health care providers (not to mention patients) already know: the way our society’s physicians are trained, pressured, and overworked is in many ways inimical to the process of healing. 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. Anyone who will ever need a doctor, and certainly anyone who will ever be a doctor, will be enriched and enlightened by her ideas. Just reading Mind Over Medicine is a genuinely healing experience.”
“Being my own inner physician for years means that I’m SUPER thrilled about Dr. Lissa Rankin’s brilliant new book, Mind Over Medicine. She marries intuition with science and shows us all our healing SUPERPOWERS, and how to live our lives this way. And, Lissa’s writing style is so exuberant and deep at the same time, it makes me feel like I can do handstands on the ocean!”
“Mind Over Medicine modernizes age old messages of wisdom and makes them easier to understand and apply to modern day lifestyles. This book contains much wisdom in easy-to-apply lessons we can all learn from.”
“With humor, warmth, and compelling research, Dr. Lissa Rankin’s Mind Over Medicine begins to heal the most critical fracture of our time—the break between our mind, bodies, and spirit. When it comes to our physical and emotional health, we need to tap into our own wisdom and find our voices. Lissa’s passion and experiences make her the perfect guide for this journey.”
“Lissa Rankin is a modern day miracle worker with a message the world needs to hear.”
“‘Body and spirit are twins: God only knows which is which,’ Swinburne wisely said more than a century ago. But for most of the twentieth century, the body has hogged the show. Now consciousness, mind, and spirit are back in center stage in medicine. In Mind Over Medicine, Dr. Lissa Rankin shows why. This is a compelling, clear, and reader-friendly vision of where medicine and healing are headed, written by an expert medical insider who’s been there. Buy two copies—one for you and one for your doctor.”
“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!”
“An extraordinary, evidence-based look at the true impact of mindset and lifestyle on pain, disease, and vitality. An M.D. herself, Rankin takes on the establishment from the inside out, building a compelling argument for a new approach to health and healing that puts the patient in the driver’s seat. Prepare to have your mind blow . . . and your body healed.”
“A doctor championing mega-doses of introspection, love, and liberation. A route to health that includes your DNA and your heart’s desire? I’m in! Lissa Rankin sheds scientific and mystical light on our ability to self-heal. She is a doctor for those of us who know in our bones that vitality is ours for the making.”
“In a world plying pharmaceutical solutions to all our problems, Dr. Lissa Rankin is an oasis of sanity. The deep attention and intimacy of her approach infuses medicine with intuitive insight and turned-on vitality. Lissa redefines healthcare, calling us to activate our own power in service of true well-being—I’m in!”

Much of what she talks about, as far as using your mind to help in the healing (and sometimes curing) process, is hardly new stuff. Most doctors will send you for a battery of tests, and if the outcome doesn't point to some organic problem, will often suggest that it might be an emotional or psychological issue. So, I don't quite understand what is so earth-shatteringly unique about this book.
What I did find to be amazing was her suggestion to put together a team of specialists to participate in a 'team' effort to cure us of our health issues. And we should ask to interview with a doctor to determine if they qualify to be on that team? Uh . . . I don't think so. I can't imagine any busy, pragmatic medical practioner in this neck of the woods willing to give the time of day to something like this.
If you have money (which you must to live in Marin County), don't work, and have nothing better to do with your time than to engage in self-absorbed activities, then go ahead, buy this book, and put together your 'team'. But if you are like the other 98% of the population, you just might not have time or money for such nonsense.
Then there are the other issues that, for me anyway, question her credibility. On Page 256 I found a description of how she sees her role: ". . . I'm no longer a lonely little puddle but part of an ocean of wayfinders and menders collectively raising the vibration of the planet". Really? And if that wasn't bad enough, as part of her healing plan, she, a medical doctor, stated that she planned to visit an astologer and have a reading done. I rest my case.
But the truth is... this is a 'copy-cat' book... in my estimation a very poor knock off... of everything that many others have said many years prior! i.e. Dr. Bernard Siegal - Louise Hay - Dr. Weil - Carolyn Myss - and the list could go on ad infinitum!
If you have ever taken a marketing class one of the first things you learn is... Hey Copy Cat works ... if it worked for someone else... copy it!!!
Then she throws in a bit on her own alleged minimal life disruption... which most of us wish we only had her troubles... She came from an incredibly supportive family... married to quote... the love of her life... and as she also admits has more money than she knows what do with... hard to feel sorry for the disruption she claims she overcame and that all of us should learn something from...
The book was a huge waste of my time and money... a total 'copy-cat' work.
1. Have a perfect life. If you don't have a perfect life, seek to make it perfect such as leave a difficult marriage, quit a stressful job, find the perfect partner, and so on.
2. If you don't have a perfect life and have stress you can't get away from then meditate as meditation can neutralise the effects of chronic stress. If you can't meditate, be mindful.
The book is well presented but to me that was all there was to it.

My only negative is that I found it a bit too long.
