BALANCING CONVENTIONAL & SACRED MEDICINE with LISSA RANKIN, MD
“I am not in the scientific materialism camp, and I am not in the new age camp. I am trying to be the camp of no camp. There is no reason we need to choose either conventional medicine or sacred medicine.” – Dr. Lissa Rankin [11:01]
“Be on the lookout for agendas dressed up in a holy drag.” – Dr. Lissa Rankin [26:30]
Have you ever wondered what really makes us sick? And how we really heal? Why do some people with the healthiest lifestyles get tragically, chronically or terminally ill? While others with bad habits get a disability free life until they’re 100?
In this episode, we talk with Dr. Lissa Rankin, MD, a medical doctor who has asked and deeply reseached all those questions in her new book, Sacred Medicine: A Doctor's Quest to Unravel the Mysteries of Healing. Dr Rankin is a mind body medicine physician, author of seven books, and the founder of Whole Health Medicine Institute in the San Francisco Bay area of California, for physicians and health care providers who seek a transformative complement to traditional medical education. She researches radical remission, trauma informed medicine and spiritual healing.
Her TEDx talks have been viewed over 5 million times and she starred in two national public television specials, Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine, and The Fear Cure. Lissa interest in the link between loneliness and disease has led her to spearhead her latest project, Heal At Last, a not-for-profit organization, which aims to bring effective trauma healing, and spiritual healing methods to anyone ready for the deep dive of healing.
Listen in to hear Dr. Lissa Rankin bridge between conventional medicine and sacred healing.
