Few in the conventional medical world are talking about how fear can make you sick, and even fewer are suggesting that courage can be a potent medicine. But through her work with patients struggling to overcome illness, as well as personal experience, Dr. Lissa Rankin realised that fear is not just a nuisance emotion, it's a serious risk factor for conditions from heart disease to diabetes to cancer. And it's futile to approach the prevention and treatment of disease without also tackling the fears that put our health at risk and rob our lives of joy.
Here, Dr. Rankin presents a breakthrough understanding of fear, courage, health and the true self, exploring the psychospiritual roots of disease and charting a path back to wellness and wholeness. Using peer-reviewed studies and powerful true stories, she shows us how fear operates and what can be done to reduce its damaging effects.
