Dr. Lissa Rankin Offers Scientific Proof We Can Heal Ourselves
There’s a lot of “woo woo” talk out there in the land of metaphysics, the law of attraction, and mind/body medicine about our capacity for self-healing. As an open-minded physician, I’ve always been fascinated by this concept. But as a skeptical scientist at heart, I’ve always had this little voice in the back of my head that says, “Bullshit. Prove it.”
My curiosity about whether we really have the power to cure our own bodies fueled an inquiry into the medical literature, not just in the mind/body medicine journals, but in the New England Journal of Medicine and in labs from the halls of Harvard. What I found blew my mind and evolved into my next book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof You Can Heal Yourself (Hay House, 2013). The book is broken down into the truths of what I wasn’t taught in medical school, and what I have learned since then.
Truth #1 You can believe yourself well.
I had no clue that this was SO true until I started digging deep into the medical literature. What I found cracked me open, and I want to share some of it with you here. Read more »

I’m enthusiastically lining up interviews for WISH Radio and the first one to kick off the adventure is the super-inspiring, ridiculously delicious Dr. Lissa Rankin!
You’re going to LOVE Dr. Lissa Rankin!
If you caught my last newsletter, then you will already know that Dr. Lissa Rankin of www.owningpink.com is an OB/GYN who had given up her white coat to inspire women in the area of “life coaching”. Her passion for pink, for women’s health, for the idea of “getting out of your own way” is what led her to repeatedly “break up with” her white coat and try to leave her medical practice for life coaching and personal development.
So she told me that for the interview, we could talk about anything EXCEPT for the blessed vagina (her area of professional expertise) and women’s health.
Then suddenly I got an email out of the blue and she had done a complete 180.
I called her up to find out what the scoop was. She said in spite of her countless attempts to abandon the field of medicine ,something had happened and she had no choice but to pick up her white coat and dive into some serious medical research. The results were so mind boggling, so intensely life-changing that she felt compelled to pick up her coat again.
You can listen to this interview here:
This call will change the way you think about your health!
Here’s a bit more about Lissa! You’re going to LOVE this call!
Lissa Rankin refuses to be put in any one box, and in that simple fact, she attracts readers, patients, healers, coaching clients, writers, artists, collectors, and admirers around the world. By refusing to stand on a pedestal, wear a white coat, and portray herself as anything more than a regular woman who just happens to have twelve years of education and a decade of experience as a doctor under her belt, she differentiates herself from many others who are trying to be “experts” without being transparent about who they really are and revealing their true humanity. Her message and her example are redefining what it means to be healthy, vibrant, authentic, and alive as a woman in the 21st century.
Lissa is a Pink Medicine Woman Coach who practiced as an OB/GYN physician for ten years, a public speaker and teacher, author of the books What’s Up Down There? Questions You’d Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend, and Encaustic Art: The Complete Guide To Creating Fine Art With Wax, founder of the online community OwningPink.com, a professional artist, a workshop leader, and a Mom. Lissa started a simple blog in 2009 to document her personal quest to integrate all the fragmented facets of her being that made her whole.OwningPink.com immediately caught fire with readers from all walks of life who were seeking their authentic selves and saw in Lissa a transparent, growing soul and kindred spirit. OwningPink.com has grown strongly and steadily in its first two years and now hosts more than 30 authors, coaches, and healers, spawning a community of over 70,000 social media followers and over 500,000 readers.
