Lissa has said:
"Seeking to move the notion of self-healing from the realm of the magical or even metaphysical, I also searched for evidence of a clear physiological mechanism that explains how positive thoughts and emotions might translate into cure for the body.
What I discovered blew my mind, shifted my paradigm about modern health care, and became the groundwork for my upcoming book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof You Can Heal Yourself (Hay House, 2013). Loads of data proves that the mind can believe itself well. In clinical trials, we call it “the placebo effect.” Patients treated with placebos don’t just feel better. It’s not just “in their heads.” They’ve actually had warts disappear, bronchi dilate, colons become less inflamed, hair growth on the heads of bald men, ulcers heal, and other measurable physiological phenomena."
What other people are saying about "Mind Over Medicine":
“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.”
— Christiane Northrup, M.D., OB/GYN physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
“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
“With humor, warmth, and compelling research, Dr. Lissa Rankin’s Mind Over Medicine begins to heal the most critical fracture of our time—the break between our mind, bodies, and spirit. When it comes to our physical and emotional health, we need to tap into our own wisdom and find our voices. Lissa’s passion and experiences make her the perfect guide for this journey.”
— Brené Brown, Ph.D., New York Times best-selling author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
“‘Body and spirit are twins: God only knows which is which,’ Swinburne wisely said more than a century ago. But for most of the twentieth century, the body has hogged the show. Now consciousness, mind, and spirit are back in center stage in medicine. In Mind Over Medicine, Dr. Lissa Rankin shows why. This is a compelling, clear, and reader-friendly vision of where medicine and healing are headed, written by an expert medical insider who’s been there. Buy two copies—one for you and one for your doctor.”
— Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Reinventing Medicine, Healing Words, and One Mind
“This book is a wonderful, practical guide to heal yourself and stay positive. Dr. Rankin has compiled pertinent scientific research to support the incredible wisdom behind making healthy life style and attitude changes to enhance your health and vibrance. She honors mind, body, and spirit in the healing process.”
— Judith Orloff MD, author of Emotional Freedom
- From Publisher's Weekly: “Recent diatribes against the forthcoming DSM-5 have called for medical professionals to put down the book from time to time and look patients in the eye. Rankin takes it one step further and tells folks to look inside themselves to heal themselves, both mentally and physically. After years of working in a traditional medical setting and dealing with her own failing health, Rankin undertook extensive research into the medical literature of the past 50 years and discovered the true power of an optimistic outlook on the body’s ability to heal itself. But it’s difficult work being an optimist- it requires faith in one’s ability to heal, and it necessitates a serious attitude adjustment. As such- and always with the skeptics in mind- Rankin walks readers through self-assessment techniques, methods of self-diagnosis, and how to plan a “prescription” for going forward. She does not dismiss the benefits of modern medicine; rather, she urges patients and health care providers to seek mind and body solutions in order to secure the best care possible. Rankin’s insightful and compassionate treatise may not convince everyone, but it’s a refreshing alternative to a handful of pills.”

When & Where
PRAISE FOR MASTIN:
“Mastin Kipp is one of my favorite people."
—Marianne Williamson, spiritual activist, author, lecturer and founder of The Peace Alliance
“The Daily Love is my favorite place to go for inspiration every day! Mastin blends wisdom with style that helps me stay inspired to change my life.”
—Mena Suvari, actress
"In less than two months, working with Mastin changed my life drastically. I started to feel like myself again, began a new relationship, my business monthly income doubled thanks to him. His advice completely changed the way I think of myself and it continues to be a crucial part of my daily life. I'm forever grateful to him."
"Within 20 minutes of working with Mastin, he was able to diagnose an addiction that ten years of therapy could not pinpoint. I was shocked and I am truly grateful. The awareness I have gained in the few months of our mentoring sessions has been life-altering. I don't always know where my mentoring sessions are going to go with Mastin, but he always blows my mind in how well he is able to listen to what's going on and pick out something I have not seen and teach me a new way to look at the world."
"I thought I had a lot of love for the people in my life and didn't realize I didn't have any love for myself. I have learned that loving myself has to come first and that is ok. I have also learned the meaning of taking responsibility in my relationships and to forgive myself."
"Mastin is an amazing mentor. He is real, he cares and he's got the goods to help you reach your full potential. Since we started working together, I've completely turned my health and lifestyle around. I've kicked several addictions, including smoking after being a smoker for 10 years, and I feel more focused and spiritually fulfilled as a result. I've also made huge leaps in the directions of my vision for my career and for the first time in my life, I feel as though my dreams are within reach. Last but not least, I'm no longer entering into relationships that don't serve me, both in business and personally. I've redefined my standards and relationships that weren't up to par have given way to new ones that are actually in alignment with what I'm all about."
"Working with Mastin has helped me move to a greater level of awareness and happiness. I came to him with a painful, broken heart. I had never felt that depressed in my life. Mastin re-opened me to my faith & spirituality, and made me face my deepest and darkest demons. Through a weekly process of discussions and writing exercises with Mastin, I finally came out of my fog a more spiritual, aware and happy person. I no longer long for my ex, but rejoice in the lessons I learned from that experience. I have finally dealt with some longstanding issues with my family and the new relationship I'm cultivating with them has ignited a change within them all. I lost 10 pounds and found a way of eating and exercising that is much more fitting for my mental, physical and emotional health. I'm better with stress and triggers at work and have some great new goals to take my career to the next level. Most importantly, I have become open to love again. I'm excited about the future because I am now reflecting the version of myself that will attract the best kind of partner for me. Sure, there are hard days where everything doesn't feel a bright, but Mastin has also equipped me with the tools to deal with those moments of doubt, fear and weakness. I've had several therapists who never helped me grow this significantly or this fast. The proactive nature of Mastin's counsel really forces you to take responsibility for your own state of being. I am so thankful to have Mastin in my life and I feel like I've made a lifelong friend and teacher."
