Cheryl Esposito welcomes Lissa Rankin, M.D., physician, speaker, New York Times bestselling author & Founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute.
Friday March 5, 2021 10:00 am Pacific Time
After years as a practicing OB/GYN physician, Lissa Rankin decided there had to be a better way to live into her purpose for becoming a physician in the first place. She stepped away from the conventional practice of healthcare, but not away from caring for the health and well being of people. Observing the mind-body connection in healing with patients, Lissa set out to learn what makes it work for some and not others. She wrote Mind Over Medicine to tell the story. Her book The Fear Cure: Cultivating Courage as Medicine for the Body, Mind, and Soul provides a look into fear as an inhibitor to healing, with a plan to move beyond it.
Lissa is on a grass roots mission to put the “care” back in health care, and to heal our broken health care system – one doctor and one patient at a time. When the expectation to see 40 patients a day became her reality, she knew it was not the way she wanted to care for patients. When she experienced multiple crises in her family, she knew she had to make a change. And that she did. Her own journey to wholeness birthed a new path to helping others providers and patients – and the creation of the Whole Health Medicine Institute. Are you curious?
