“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.

“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.

“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.”

“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!”
“This book is a wonderful, practical guide to heal yourself and stay positive. Dr. Rankin has compiled pertinent scientific research to support the incredible wisdom behind making healthy life style and attitude changes to enhance your health and vibrance. She honors mind, body, and spirit in the healing process.”
— Judith Orloff MD, author of Emotional Freedom
“Recent diatribes against the forthcoming DSM-5 have called for medical professionals to put down the book from time to time and look patients in the eye. Rankin takes it one step further and tells folks to look inside themselves to heal themselves, both mentally and physically. After years of working in a traditional medical setting and dealing with her own failing health, Rankin undertook extensive research into the medical literature of the past 50 years and discovered the true power of an optimistic outlook on the body’s ability to heal itself. But it’s difficult work being an optimist- it requires faith in one’s ability to heal, and it necessitates a serious attitude adjustment. As such- and always with the skeptics in mind- Rankin walks readers through self-assessment techniques, methods of self-diagnosis, and how to plan a “prescription” for going forward. She does not dismiss the benefits of modern medicine; rather, she urges patients and health care providers to seek mind and body solutions in order to secure the best care possible. Rankin’s insightful and compassionate treatise may not convince everyone, but it’s a refreshing alternative to a handful of pills.”

What makes Mind Over Medicine so different from the other books is that she provides information that is grounded in scientific study from mainstream medical journals in accessible language. She challenges the Western medicine culture without disparaging it. Instead, she advocates the power of positive thinking, proactive self-care, and seeing wellness with an open mind. I wish there was an index, but she organizes her case well into three sections:
1) Evidence of mind-body connection
2) Areas in the body where the mind can create healing, which includes the real physiology/mechanics of what goes on in the body
3) Methods to change your belief systems and habits to a personal health prescription
I found this totally readable and highly engaging. I think it would make anyone feel empowered to use all the tools available to optimize their health and well-being.
We have all heard about the mind - body connection. This book does a great job of using the published research literature to make the case in support of the connection.
As a physician, Dr. Rankin was naturally skeptical about the mind - body claims. This skepticism is a plus for the reader. Dr. Rankin makes sure the mind - body connection case is solid and not just the result of random chance.
While intuitively believing in the mind - body connection, Dr. Rankin set out on a journey to find the evidence that the power of the mind can transform the body. As a reader of this book, you too can benefit from what she has learned. What Dr. Rankin learned changed her life, and reading this book could change yours as well.
If you are interested in your health, then read this book. If you are a health or wellness professional, then this book should be a must read for your professional development.
Don't miss out on what Dr. Rankin has to share.....Read this book. I believe you will be glad you did.
