We appear to have more control over our lives than ever before. If we could get things right – the perfect job, relationship, family, body and mind – then we’d be happy. With enough economic growth and technological innovation, we could cure all societal ills. The Happiness Problem shows that this way of thinking is too simplistic and can even be harmful: no matter how much progress we make, we will still be vulnerable to disappointment, loss and suffering. The things we do to make us happy are merely the tip of the iceberg. Sam Wren-Lewis offers an alternative process that acknowledges insecurity and embraces uncertainty. Drawing on our psychological capacities for curiosity and compassion, he proposes that we can connect with, and gain a deeper understanding of, the personal and social challenges that define our time

Not many people in the medical world are talking about how being afraid can make us sick-but the truth is that fear, left untreated, becomes a serious risk factor for conditions from heart disease to diabetes to cancer.

New York Times bestseller and beloved guide, revised and updated with up-to-the minute scientific and spiritual insight, teaches readers how to listen to their bodies and assess all areas of their lives--relational, psychological, creative, environmental, professional--to understand what they need for health. "What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine--the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well." - Christiane Northrup, M.D., OB/GYN physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause When Mind Over Medicine was first published, it broke new ground in the fertile region where science and spirituality intersect. Through the process of restoring her own health, Dr. Lissa Rankin discovered that the conventional health care she had been taught to practice was missing something crucial: a recognition of the body's innate ability to self-repair and an appreciation for how we can control these self-healing mechanisms with the power of our own consciousness. To better understand this phenomenon, she explored peer-reviewed medical literature and found evidence that the medical establishment had been proving that the body can heal itself for over 50 years. She shared her findings and laid out a practical plan for readers to heal themselves in this profoundly wise book--a New York Times bestseller and now a classic guide for people who are on a healing journey from illness, injury, or trauma. In the years since then, Dr. Rankin has deepened her exploration of the world's healing tradition and her understanding of the healing power we hold within ourselves--if only we can tap into it. This revised edition of Mind Over Medicine reflects her latest research, evolving wisdom, and work with clients and students in her healing community, as well as with doctors and other healers in her Whole Health Medicine Institute. Inside, readers will discover: • A thorough update of Dr. Rankin's signature Six Steps to Healing Yourself • New insight into how unresolved trauma can stand in the way of healing from chronic and life-threatening illnesses-and powerful tools we can use to heal it • How to tune in to our Inner Pilot Light for intuitive guidance in our healing And much more "The healing that is possible may be right here," Dr. Rankin writes, "closer than close, underneath all your efforting and striving, available if you are ready to humble yourself before this possibility and receive what awaits you."

"Clinical trials show that up to 80 percent of patients given a placebo heal themselves with the power of the mind alone. But how? There is documented evidence that beliefs, thoughts, and feelings can cure the body ... this book not only reveals the data from mainstream medical journals; it tells you step-by-step how you can implement this knowledge to make your body ripe for spontaneous remission or disease prevention ... Western-trained physician Lissa Rankin, M.D. pored over hundreds of objectively evaluated, peer-reviewed studies from medical journals to find proof not just that thoughts and feelings originating in the mind can heal the body, but also that there are clear physiological mechanisms explaining how this happens ... she explains how this process works, proves with extraordinary case studies from the medical literature that it does, and teaches practical techniques you can use to activate the body's natural self-healing mechanisms, while shutting off the processes that predispose to illness. She also guides you through the process of uncovering where you might be making unhealthy choices, not just in your diet, exercise program, and sleep habits, but in your relationships, your professional life, your creative life, your spiritual life, and more-- so that you can create a customized treatment plan"--

One day Donna Jackson Nakazawa found herself lying on the floor to recover from climbing the stairs. That’s when it hit her. She was managing the symptoms of the autoimmune disorders that had plagued her for a decade, but she had lost her joy. As a science journalist, she was curious to know what mind-body strategies might help her. As a wife and mother she was determined to get her life back. Over the course of one year, Nakazawa researches and tests a variety of therapies including meditation, yoga, and acupuncture to find out what works. But the discovery of a little-known branch of research into Adverse Childhood Experiences causes her to have an epiphany about her illness that not only stuns her—it turns her life around. Perfect for readers of Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project, Nakazawa shares her unexpected discoveries, amazing improvements, and shows readers how they too can find their own last best cure.

Fibromyalgia seems more a disease of mime explained in the charades of other ailments. The majority of persons suffering from Fibromyalgia have undergone numerous tests with multiple diagnoses before a medical professional reaches the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. Aspirin will often relieve a headache but the headache is not brought on by a deficiency of aspirin, therefore aspirin is not a cure for the headache but rather an aid in the relief of headache symptoms. When headaches reoccur we begin to look beyond the ease of symptoms for the root cause. Many times the cause of a headache is stress, muscle fatigue, spinal alignment, digestion issues, body temperature, lack of oxygen in the blood stream, dehydration, or a precursory sign of infection just to mention a few. One could almost conclude a headache as an early warning device of malfunction within the human machine but then aspirin should merely be considered a temporary fix while transitioning through the repair. Chronic headache often is one of the many symptoms associated with Fibromyalgia but Fibromyalgia seems the mime portraying a spectrum of symptoms as an impressionist portraying personalities. It is the vast arrays of symptoms that go and come, appear or disappear that seem to make Fibromyalgia difficult to diagnose and treat because as a whole we are a society that treats the symptoms first; much like taking aspirin for a headache. When we relieve the symptom, usually discomfort or pain, we tend to rejoice in the relief and call it good. There are as many causes to the mere symptom of a headache as there are symptoms to Fibromyalgia. In this book, From Pain to Freedom, we will journey through the forest of Fibromyalgia symptoms, medical diagnosis, pain markers, symptom relief and press forward to Freedom Valley. With that said, it takes an open mind and a willingness to embrace that which is new to us in order to persevere forward. The science of medicine today is absolutely astounding but equally so is the study of medical procedure and herbal symptom cures of ancient tribal cultures. Is it possible the “healing touch” of tribal spiritual leaders may have been the gateway to chiropractic care today? If you are of the belief that the body was designed to heal itself than you must also embrace that the power of the mind is in essence a major factor in that healing. If common sense tells you that a scale equally weighted is considered balanced than consideration might be paid that equality between mind and body would symbolize being balanced as an entity of one. Relief from the symptoms of Fibromyalgia is a huge progressive step but without exploring the cause behind the symptoms and effort put forth to elevate or better control its causes it becomes a vicious circle of painful insanity. From Pain to Freedoms an eye opening guide to the possibilities of a life free from the shackles of Fibromyalgia. Obviously I state “Guide to the possibilities” not a cure to Fibromyalgia. Learning different pain management techniques as well as the triggers that entice the painful symptoms could be considered the avoidance of Fibromyalgia symptoms and without symptoms or pain—-well, you judge the name to that outcome. You will learn the medical side of study into Fibromyalgia as to its suspected onset cause, diagnoses of prevalent symptoms and symptom and pain management as well as the naturopathic method to Fibromyalgia management which takes in an entire spectrum of all methods not encompassed by modern day medical science. Naturopathic study lends a hand of enlightenment to modern medical science but modern medical science is not often as accommodating to the study of naturopathy. Ignorance is closing a blind eye for a blind eye has no advantageous purpose to being closed. Open minds to the possibilities that bliss between medical science and naturopathic science have to offer is a freedom. Freedom is the knowledge of knowing what freedom is in order to attain it. One must open their mind to accept knowledge; discernment of that knowledge is a choice. Throughout this journey, you, accompanied by well documented medical science and naturopathic relief will be given great insight on Fibromyalgia, its symptoms and management to the fruition of freedom. You will learn about medical advancements in the study of Fibromyalgia inclusive of symptom and pain management techniques. You will learn the benefits of chiropractic care, acupuncture, deep tissue massage, tension point massage, reflexology, and more within the power of touch. You will learn the many forms of meditation that will help you to quiet brain chatter and relieve stress, how to mentally relieve muscle tightness and fatigue and how to use your mind to over-ride the tensions that seem to be a precursor pain. James Allen authored a wonderful well known book: As a Man Thinketh of which “so shall he become” follows the title. John Maxwell lends the visionary quote: “What I perceive…determines what I receive…which determines how I achieve”. Both James Allen and John Maxwell allude to the power of thought in context to how we are perceive ourselves or how we can become just as Mind, Body and Spirit alludes to the totality of human balance. The many different meditation techniques will help you to achieve a better understanding of yourself, the power within and ability to take control of your feelings and healing. We have five senses: Sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste to which naturopathic healing attunes. The saying “we are what we eat” is always intriguing because it applies to each of us as individuals. How certain foods react with one person’s make-up will differ to the next. Foods that affect us adversely seem to be directly correlated to our ability to rid toxins, the acid/alkalinity level of our body and the strength of our immune system. There are some foods that seem to resonate well with those that suffer with Fibromyalgia. From Pain to Freedomwill not only give you an arsenal of food facts but also some easy recipes.
