Dr. Lissa Rankin’s Healing Speech on Making Lifestyle Changes

By: Lacey-Jane Walsh - Published: Aug 9, 2013 • References: lissarankin & youtube
Dr. Lissa Rankin preaches about improving health without medicine in this healing speech. Rankin comes from a family of doctors and as a physician, she was raised to think scientifically. However, Rankin now believes that some chronic illnesses can be brought on by stress and unhappiness. Curing these illnesses, she claims, can be as easy as pursuing a new career or leaving a bad relationship.

Rankin discusses patients she’s had who should have been healthy but were ill. After talking with these patients, she realized that many of these people were unhappy in their personal lives. When they took strides to change their personal problems, their chronic illnesses started to go into remission.

She discusses the placebo effect and states that the mind can indeed heal the body. She also claims that the mind can make people ill. If people have negative beliefs about their health, Rankin says that they are more likely to become sick. Stats for Healing Without Medicine Trending: Older & Chilly
