Lissa Rankin, MD – Speaker Bio

admin Speaker Bios 0 Comments, and founder of the 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 writes 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, and sexuality. She is leading a movement to change how health care is received and delivered by encouraging collaboration, fostering self-healing, reconnecting health care and spirituality, and empowering patients to tap into the mind’s power to heal the body.  When not spreading the word, she skis, paints, does yoga, and hikes in Marin County, CA with her husband and daughter.
