Do you have the power to make yourself sick, it turns out you do. It sounds radical but apparently what doctors aren’t telling you is that the power of medicine is the last effective course of treatment and the power of the mind to heal the body can sidestep any interceptive treatment the doctor may have going on. Lisa Rankin in her powerful boom, Mind Over Medicine, gives the public the bird’s eye view of what really goes on behind the curtain of “doctor,” and how healing happens on their watch that science can’t explain. Even the most close-minded doctors witness patients who get well when every scientific rationale says they shouldn’t.
Doctors don’t discuss this in front of patients
Doctors question every science they hold dear to medicine when they can’t help but question what just took place. Doctors don’t speak out loud about it around their colleagues, but there are a large number of them realizing after spending a short time in practice there is something beyond ordinary medicine going on here.
The placebo effect
There are stories; archives that blow your mind that make you pay attention. It all begins with the reason why a placebo was invented in the first place, and its use today in modern medicine.
Like the woman who had cancer the size of golf balls throughout her body and was receiving radiation treatment and at the end of the course of treatment the cancer had completely disappeared, no signs of it whatsoever, only for the doctors to discover the radiation machine had been broken down and not even working the entire time.
What if medical science has it all wrong
Rankin a Ph. D herself, goes on to tell of one man who refuse heart surgery after suffering a heart attack only to have cured his blocked arteries, by changing his diet and adding physical activity and more than anything changing his whole entire attitude and outlook on life.
After 20 years of medicine Rankin became disillusioned with the broken-healthcare system
Medicine, her soul wanted to practice, but felt victim to managed-healthcare forced her to take a step back. That coupled with death of people closest to her, she took time off and began her blog, Owning Pink. An uncharted course began, “a calling.” Ranking recalls, “You don’t choose your calling, it chooses you. You can quit your job but you can’t quit your calling.”
Books fell off the shelf, people fell in her path, physicians appeared on her doorstep
There is scientific data to support mind-body healing. There’s proof doctors don’t want you to find this information because it presides over their authority to prescribe treatments and medicines. The mind has the power to alter DNA, the physiology of the body and she teaches the value-ability of better health and how to get there.
Mind Over Medicine, has been glaring at me from the library shelf for weeks. I’d look then look away. Pick it up then put it back. Finally it’s message could be put off no longer, it jumped into my armload of books with all of the rest. I’ve even run across Rankin’s blog researching articles I’ve written and bookmarked it and didn’t get the chance to really dive into it. Those who know me have said, “shame on you, it’s so not like you to avoid true knowledge or good work.” I’m reading and re-reading and if you have’t read it yet do yourself a favor.
Rankin reclaims the heart of medicine
This book is a “must read” for everyone concerned about their health, changing their life plan or making goals for themselves. This book is a must read for anyone with children or who tries to do the “right thing” or the best they can do, when it comes to their health. It’s a nice easy read for those who choose to be informed out there, you will appreciate Rankin’s honesty and openness, not to mention her style of writing.
What it lacks in encyclopedia-bored-dull fact lists it makes up it makes up with in a brilliance of knowledge you can use. Rankin inspires us on to “believe ourselves well,” and that the tenderness and humanness and the inner pilot light of human beings is not being lost in the red tape, cold calculated-hard-nosed, uncaring response of the futuristic medical industry.
