About Lissa Rankin, MD:
New age gurus suggest that we can heal ourselves by simply changing our minds, but is this concept grounded in cold, hard science? Lissa Rankin, MD explores the scientific literature, reviewing case studies of spontaneous remission, as well as placebo and nocebo effect data, to prove that our thoughts powerfully affect our physiology when we believe we can get well.

I 100% believe its mind over matter with healing your body! If you get sick, envision your white blood cells fighting off any infections in your body. Truly think of them as little soldiers with swords fighting off anything that's not good for your body....IT WORKS! I have healed myself quickly through these thoughts and listening to Binaural Beats for healing every night while I sleep. Just give it a try

The pandemic has just invited loneliness into so many people’s lives inevitably and I was just wondering why I was suffering from OCD which I never had a record of. I haven’t been able to meet my friends and extended family for so long. It’s interesting because humans were naturally formed as social animals and when we aren’t social enough, we face consequences. It’s also interesting to me when she says nature is better than us. No. We are a part of nature, we were all living like the animals we see today in the wild. Its problematic because we’re trying hard to separate nature and us. The rural folks live in closer contact to our natural habitat with a close connection to their surroundings and they’re all much happier and healthier both mentally and physically. We need to have faith and the will which can move rocks and if it can move non living matter it can for sure significantly move conscious lives. Staying strong and being positive is the key to anything and everything no matter how hard it gets. Just look at the moon, know, know that someone else is looking at the SAME moon as YOU along WITH YOU, just somewhere else. Everyone is with you.💛

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the biggest scams there is, possibly only second to the economic system (which is rigged to benefit the financial elite and drain everyone else). All pharmaceutical drugs are essentially placebos and/or nocebos. Those at the top of the pyramid know this, while those who occupy the lower levels typically do not. Pharmaceutical drugs kill approximately 100,000 people and hospitalize approximately 1.5 million people each year in the United States alone. They have so many "side effects" because they are actually highly toxic substances. There are other methods of holistic healing that have no side effects and cost much less (or are free) such as meditation, fasting, energy healing modalities, crystals, and essential oils. Those who own the pharmaceutical companies also own mainstream media; which is why there is so much fear and negativity proliferated through large media outlets. Fear leads to dis-ease, while love leads to health and healing. The mind is far more powerful than any drug; and actually determines how drugs affect the body more so than anything else. We create our health or dis-ease through our thoughts, emotions, words, actions, and interactions. We also create pretty much everything else in our lives to a large degree. We are all portions of Source, and so we are imbued with tremendous creative power. Whatever we focus on, we draw more of into our own subjective experiences through the law of attraction/law of mirroring.

@Michael Notinger I agree, pharma companies always treat the symptoms but never the disease itself. Diabetes is an imbalance which is as simple to cure as a cold if guided by our doctors the right way by identifying the right root cause for the diabetes, maybe lack of physical exercise/chronic stress/other causes

@Gitanjali Reddy It has recently been discovered that diabetes can actually be cured with a raw vegan diet (among other things). This makes sense since many cases of diabetes are caused by overconsumption of heavily processed foods. Raw vegan food is the most natural food that we can consume. Most of the other food that is sold in grocery stores has been heavily process by human beings. The animals who are harvested for their products and bodies typically go through tremendous amounts of suffering prior to being consumed. The human body is only really designed to deal with natural foods on a regular basis.

It’s funny how pharma companies can never find a cure for diabetes because they sell millions of pills every year to somehow keep the diabetes just under control…

The fact that you know someone/something has tried to sabotage you is a battle half won. Now that you know that you’re not doomed to be this way you give yourself the power to decide if you really want to be this way or not. Forgive the person who hurt you and be the better person, Practice gratitude, meditate, make a bond with the elements of life (water, air, fire and the sky; fire can be done with the sun.), practice positive affirmations and you’re already mixing yourself a soup of soulfulness which is the food for the mind :) hope this helps.

“The placebo effect is a thorn in the side of the medical establishment.” Yeah that’s cause modern medicine is a racket. Shamans have known about placebo effect for thousands of years. That’s why performance and psychology of belief play a role in shamanic healing.

One of my best friends, went to her death, feeling bad that her own positive thinking, did not heal her. If positive thought could heal, people that pray to be healed, should all be healed, but we know that that is not the case. One should not feel guilty about dying from disease. We win some personal battles, and we lose other personal battles. That is the reality.

@Gitanjali Reddy Unless it is unconditional, it can't be love. And that is, in part, why I quit believing in the existence of a creator. I considered that if a creator of a universe was wrathful and judge-mental, it couldn't know the meaning of that word love. Even the word forgiveness falls short of that word love. if we could really love others, we would not judge or condemn them in the first place, in order to feel that they needed our forgiveness. We would understand that when they lost complete control of their emotions, which in turn caused harm to others, it was because they were simply unable to be in total control of their emotions.

@Gitanjali Reddy If a god existed that was all powerful, hunger should not exist.
Gitanjali Reddy
Gitanjali Reddy 3 aylar önce
@June VanDerMark I thank my creator for my comforts because it’s either that or dwell on what I don’t have which is the pessimistic vision of looking at a half empty vs a half filled glass. And I were starving to death, I would ask God to help me and thank him for having given me the life I’ve been able to live for so long. Now you might try to rebuttal again by saying that I said praying today is a mere activity of begging than practising gratitude, but we ask our mothers for food, it doesn’t mean she never feeds us. But we don’t converse with her for feeding us only. We hug her and love her for giving us birth and care and protection, along with which we ask for our timely wishes like if we were hungry for an extra cookie or something. So, it doesn’t mean she doesn’t care for us or she can’t care enough for a child she gave birth to in hunger. She cares and we thank and love her. I know you’re hurt and you’re unhappy with everything that has been happening. I hope you find the strength and courage to face the rough patch and let you have the last word because I have nothing to prove to anyone. I just merely replied hoping to help you restore faith in the power of the mind. Prayer I have forever referred to as a practice of gratitude. I will not impose my personal religious beliefs upon anyone. You are entitled to your own opinion. Hopefully you have a better day :)

@June VanDerMark Prayer is a form of mere appreciation like a practice of gratitude. You don't steer God, you learn to be grateful for what you have and see what you have than see what you don't.

For so long in the west the energetics of the body has been greatly ignored or pushed too the back for the body will need an access to energy to heal as well an if it has access to an unlimited supply of it unhindered then it can heal very fast an well.

This is an amazing talk! I wish more US physicians, especially, would stop thinking of health as a consumer product and more of a necessity to a good society. Of course, the corporations profit more by making us sick, and when we die, we've been trained to believe we're "all disposable and replaceable." Sick. Thank you, Dr. Rankin.

You don’t NEED the doctor for the placebo. This is probably because of the belief. This can be shown through healing in religious groups, retreats, and even just belief that God will heal. Going to God is free and easy.

I told my doctor not to give me a prognosis I didn’t want to hear, couldn’t help himself, he did anyway, still here doc, and cancer free.

I find her research to be amazing. I think she is absolutely correct in the effect the mind can have on the body. I also think she is correct that medicine must be a more multifaceted approach. The fact still remains that we all die at some point. So, I believe we should do the best we can in all areas until that time comes.

You need scientific proof when thousands upon thousands of people are healed of cancer, Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis? Why does it have to be in a b....test tube? If doctors say people are healed, why do you need proof in studies? One of my favourite doctors has cured about three thousand cases of every type opf illness by detoxing their bodies thoroughly.

Patients need a nurturing care of a healer only because the average people aren't trained to do it by themselves. You are talking about years of training here. Everything needs practice. If there were a program to train people to heal themselves that would work 100% guaranteed. But fkn pharmaceutical thieves will never fund it or they may do it to make it fail. We need a person that knows how to do it and can train people for a small fee.

Idiopathic is the medical way of saying I have no idea but I suspect it them really saying your neurotic. Medical ignorance is a killer. We have known since we could do meta data number crunching that your medical outcome is directly correlated with the relationship between provider and client. It drives many doctors nuts since it takes a lot of power away from them.
