Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine with Lissa Rankin, MD

Watch Thursday, December 12, 2013 at 1pm on WMHT TV.

HEAL YOURSELF: MIND OVER MEDICINE with Lissa Rankin, MD, is based on the 2013 New York Times bestselling book, Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof that You Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, MD. It is a meticulously researched explanation of the critical role our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs play in our health and wellbeing – and how we can harness the power of our minds to enjoy great health and longevity with specific, easy-to-do steps.

Dr. Rankin is a trained ob-gyn who has emerged as one of the newest thought leaders in the mind/body medicine arena. Her work has been featured extensively in the national media, including O magazine, The New York Times, CNN, Health, Women’s Health, Self, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. She will make an appearance in the fall on the new Lisa Oz Show, and she enjoys a huge online following on her blog at LissaRankin.com, on Twitter, and on Facebook.

She is also the founder of The Whole Health Medicine Institute, dedicated to teaching doctors how to provide truly integrative health and wellness to patients.
Its Board includes Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Larry Dossey and Dr. Christiane Northrup, who says about Lissa, “What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine – the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well.”

Dr. Rankin was educated at Duke University, Northwestern University, and University of South Florida. She lives in Marin, California, with her husband and daughter.
