The shocking truth about your health | Lissa Rankin | TEDxFiDiWomen

Legendary Entrepreneurs Show You How to Start, Launch & Grow a Digital Business… Click here!

Lissa Rankin, MD is an OB/GYN physician, author, keynote speaker, consultant to health care visionaries, professional artist, and founder of the women's health and wellness community Discouraged by the broken, patriarchal health care system, she left her medical practice in 2007 only to realize that you can quit your job, but you can't quit your calling. This epiphany launched her on a journey of discovery that led her to become a leader in the field of mind/body medicine, which she blogs about at and is writing about in her third book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof You Can Heal Yourself (Hay House, 2013).

She teaches both patients and health care professionals how to make the body ripe for miracles by healing the mind and being healthy in all aspects of life, not just by promoting healthy behaviors like good nutrition, exercise, and adequate sleep, but by encouraging health and authenticity in relationships, work, creative expression, spirituality, sexuality, finances, and living environment. She is leading a revolution to feminize how health care is received and delivered by encouraging collaboration, fostering self-healing, reconnecting health care and spirituality, empowering patients to tap into the mind's power to heal the body, and encouraging women not to settle for being merely well, but to strive for living vital, joyful, authentic lives full of "mojo."

When not spreading the word, she chills out, paints, does yoga, and hikes in Marin County, CA with her husband and daughter.

    Obviously if you get a virus, infection, or cancer no amount of spiritual connection, or good relationships, are going to save you on their own. I think what she is getting at here is the connection between how the health of the mind can affect the body. We need to understand that our perception of our life can affect our physical health. Its basically the negative affects of psychological stress. However in my opinion it should be considered that there are also positive affects from experiencing certain amounts of psychological stress, such as the qualities of good character. The value in this presentation is in learning to balance your life, its about creating a life style that allows you to take on „stress“ in a way that is therapeutic. In the same way that the stress of moderate regular physical exercise is therapeutic for the body, moderate regular psychological stress is healthy for the mind, too much and you start breaking down.

    All the years of research and this woman came up with this answer. This makes me so sad. Your body is telling you something is wrong. Have your spine checked.  The blood flow is being compromised to your brain. If your brain tells your body what to do and it is not functioning, this is the problem get your spine and nervous system checked. Watch Dr. Bergmen. Also, this woman needs to watch him. also.

    Little known huge secret nobody talks about: genetics. My grandfather smoked for 65 years and died at 94. My dad was a heavy drinker and smoker and never exercises, and is going strong at 96 years old. They both loved life and family though.
