What if the medical professions had it all backwards?
What if the health state of your body is just a mirror?
What if the thing the mainstream medicine treated as an “outlier” was really the biggest breakthrough in healing history?
These questions were raised by New York Times bestselling author and ground-breaking physician Dr. Lissa Rankin. She dug deep to find an answer.
She spent years researching and what she found truly blew her mind.
Nobody EVER told her that in medical school.
The answer will surprise you.
Watch her 18 Minutes TedX talk to get a clue …
In her book “Mind over Medicine” Dr. Rankin shows how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs can alter your body’s health.
She proves with scientific data that loneliness, pessimism, depression, fear, and anxiety damage your body, while intimate relationships, gratitude, meditation, sex, creative expression and an authentic self-expression turn on the body’s self-healing processes.
While reading the book, it dawned on me, how true this proved in my own life.
When I graduated from university my health went upside down. One day I just collapsed and was hospitalized for about a week.
The next thing I knew was the doctors telling me, that I had a heart weakness and that I would need to take beta blockers (Drugs to control irregular heartbeats) daily from now on for indefinite. Going from healthy to sick within a blink of an eye, I didn’t understand what was going on. The beta blockers got me back on track, but my whole blood circulatory system seemed to be messed up and I was always afraid to travel somewhere in case something would happen.
But I did it anyway.
I left the job, which I didn’t like, and went to travel around the world (only one hospital stop in L.A. due to a collapse ;)). When I came back, I settled in Switzerland for a few years, and those were some of the happiest years of my life. There I had the courage to live again without the beta blockers, to strengthen my heart with exercise and love. Things went back to normal. I remember having a really strong intention about healing my heart condition and getting off the drugs. So, reading Lisa’s book just now, made me think of this again and see the bigger picture.
To sum it up: living a happy life makes you healthy!
When you are not living a happy life, your body will keep showing you symptoms. Even if you cure one symptom, your body will come up with another symptom. Doctors are trained to medicate or operate you, but they hardly ever heal you from the inside out.
That’s your job. Your body is always trying to tell you something.
Ask yourself: “What does my body truly need to heal? What’s out of balance in my life?”
The answer, which comes up, might surprise you.
Listen closely and take the courage to make those changes in your life.
To heal from the inside out, you need to express your true nature and care for your mind, heart and soul.
PS: If your intuition doesn’t speak to you right away, I can suggest to look at Louise Hays book “Heal your life”. Here you can find a directory for body symptoms and the according problems that might give you some clues.
