“I’m obsessed with helping patients and health care providers view illness, not from a place of victimhood, but as an opportunity for awakening.” Dr. Lissa Rankin
Most of us are aware of the importance that mental balance and natural food have on your health and in the support of the body’s self-healing mechanisms. But Lissa Rankin goes way further. As an M.D. at some point she came to treat patients with model health habits, proverbial ‘health nuts’ who still had long lists of chronic health conditions. As this made no sense to her, she radically changed her approach and started to ask different questions, one of them being “what does your body need to heal”? And people intuitively came out with changes that needed to be done in their lives! Through that unconventional approach she found the answers to healing not in the medical records of her patients, but in their own lives! From that point on and backed up by years of research, the very sceptical physician that she was, established scientific proof that we can heal ourselves. With the power of our mind.
She herself went from taking countless doses of medicine for years to being free from her “sick” issues completely. The trained ob-gyn has emerged as one of the leaders in the mind/body medicine arena, bridging between two seemingly disparate worlds: spirituality and science.
