Lissa Rankin, M.D., an OB/GYN, discusses how our mind, heart and soul deeply affect our health. She believes they are MORE important than caring for the body.
As a physician, she was frustrated with treating patents’ symptoms vs causes. So, she started down a path in search of “what really makes a body healthy and what really makes us sick.” After much research, she discovered what she was never taught in medical school. She says what really matters is “healthy relationships; having a healthy professional life; expressing yourself creatively; being spiritually connected; having a healthy sex life; being healthy financially; living in a healthy environment; being mentally healthy; and of course all the things we traditionally associate with health also matter – all the things that nurture the body.”
She highlights our “inner pilot light” as the guide to a healthy body. It’s that deep, essence and part of you that always knows what’s right for YOU. “You’re born with it. It goes with you when you die… – that’s the biggest healer you can tap into.”
