Mind Over Medicine by Dr. Lissa Rankin
The health care world consists of practitioners married to two often competing philosophies. Many hang their hats on modern medicine’s ever-evolving technological advances, insisting that technology is the panacea for all illness. Others, who often pressure patients to avoid conventional medicine, believe you can heal yourself and the practitioner’s job is to facilitate the self-healing process. Lissa focuses on how to combine the two, integrating the best of what modern medicine has to offer with techniques for facilitating physiological self-repair via the power of the mind. In her lecture, you will learn about the role emotions and thoughts have on your health and wellbeing and changes you can make to set your life on a course of more balance, energy, and fulfillment.
