The New York Times best-selling author of Mind Over Medicine presents a breakthrough understanding of how fear literally makes us sick-and how cultivating courage can help us chart a path back to wellness and an authentic, soul-centered life.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. Now Lissa Rankin, M.D., explains why we need to heal ourselves from the fear that puts our health at risk and robs our lives of joy-and shows us how fear can ultimately cure us by opening our eyes to all that needs healing in our lives.

Drawing on peer-reviewed studies and powerful true stories, The Fear Cure presents a breakthrough understanding of fear's effects and charts a path back to wellness and wholeness on every level. We learn:* How a fearful thought translates into physiological changes that predispose us to illness
* How to tell true fear (the kind that arises from a genuine threat) from false fear (which triggers stress responses that undermine health)
* How to tune in to the voice of courage inside-our Inner Pilot Light"
* How to reshape our relationship to uncertainty so that it's no longer something to dread, but a doorway to new possibilities
* What our fears can teach us about who we really are
At the intersection of science and spirituality, The Fear Cure identifies the Four Fearful Assumptions that lie at the root of all fears-from the sense that we're alone in the universe to the belief that we can't handle losing what we love-and shifts them into Four Courage-Cultivating Truths that pave our way to not only physical well-being, but profound awakening. Using exercises from a wide range of mind-body practices and spiritual traditions, Dr. Rankin teaches us how to map our own courage-cultivating journey, write a personalized Prescription for Courage, and step into a more authentic life.
