How To Heal
When life at work just
isn’t working out
Mind Over Medicine
“In this book, Lissa Rankin clearly states what many health care providers (not to mention patients) already
know: the way our society’s physicians are trained, pressured, and overworked is in many ways inimical to
the process of healing. In her life, her work, and her words, Dr. Rankin demonstrates a new way to combine
the brilliance of modern science with the wisdom of the heart. Anyone who will ever need a doctor, and
certainly anyone who will ever be a doctor, will be enriched and enlightened by her ideas. Just reading Mind
Over Medicine is a genuinely healing experience.”
— Martha Beck, Ph.D., author of Finding Your Way in a Wild New World
“Mind Over Medicine modernizes age old messages of wisdom and makes them easier
to understand and apply to modern day lifestyles. This book contains much wisdom in
easy-to-apply lessons we can all learn from.”
— Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine & Miracles
Rankin is an M.D. who walked away from her medical practice after a
highly-successful career. She was frustrated, angry and looking for
answers that allopathic models didn’t seem to support. New York
Times bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine and The Fear Cure,
Lissa is a physician, speaker, spiritual seeker and founder of the
Whole Health Medicine Institute.

This is for you if you are a woman manager...
who feels overwhelmed and under appreciated
whose job drains you and leaves you wondering if it’s worth the sacrifice
whose body shows symptoms of stress more and more frequently, even if you do
all the ‘right things’ like work out, eat well and exercise your mind.
3 Mastermind(set) Shifts
1. Fear dominates modern culture and fear predisposes us not only to
unhappiness but to disease.
2. State of mind, emotion, human circumstance, human interaction and belief not
only play a role, but have the ability to effectively turn on or off the body’s
innate ability to heal itself.
3. No matter how often mainstream medical intervention soothes a symptom, the
real underlying cause, (ie the challenge, the deeper pain) will keep resurfacing
new and old symptoms over and over.
Why we love this book

escape the epidemic of fatal frustration from work.
And if you learn and use the techniques in this book, you’ll get to wake up well
rested, free of chronic pains or problems, interested in your day and what may lie
ahead...in short, able to keep up with work demands and still have your health.
What medicine we really need
Here are a few interesting statistics that will help convince you to implement self
care at work and counteract the stress response. Over 60% doctor visits could be
attributed to the stress response according to Herbert Benson.
When scientists researched this, here’s what they found that helped people defy
death by overwork. Striking physiologic changes accompanied meditation--sharp
drops in heart rate, respiratory rate and metabolic rate.
The general rule that applies here when you want to effectively treat conditions
such as cardiac arrhythmias, allergic skin reactions, anxiety, mild to moderate
depression, diabetes mellitus, dizziness, fatigue, hypertension, nausea, PMS, all
forms of pain etc you must use some tool (meditation is 1 example) to activate the
relaxation response and counteract fight or flight.
How to treat underlying factors
Here is your 3 step action plan to fuller health and a fulfilling career:
1.) Develop creativity rituals such as meditating at an altar, lighting a candle, saying
a daily prayer...painting whenever possible...creating multi media courses...
2.) Meditate for at least 20 minutes per day
3.) Recognize that pain is inevitable but suffering is optional. Consciously choose joy.
“With all those negative emotions filling her mind and all those stress hormones coursing
through her body, no vegetable, supplement, exercise program, or drug was going to be strong
enough to counteract the harmful health effects of chronic stress responses on her body.”
What to do RIGHT NOW
It’s time to ACT so you get this into place in your life... so you start doing what it
takes to get the energy you want, attract the people you want to attract, and
