The shocking truth about your health Lissa Rankin TEDxFiDiWomen
What's the most important part of your health what do you think is it eating a balanced, mostly plantbased diet, balancing your hormones, daily exercise, getting enough sleep what do you guys think taking your vitamins, seeing your for regular check ups laughter these things might all seem like important, even critical, factors to living a healthy life, but what if i told you that caring for your body was the least important part of your health what do you think i'm a physician, so if you'd told me that five years ago,.
That would have been total sacrilege.I mean, i spent 12 years training, because the body is supposed to be the foundation for everything in life.But what if i told you that the medical profession had it all backwards, if the body doesn't shape how we live our lives what if the body is actually a mirror of how we live our lives think about it for a minute.Think about a time in your life where you weren't living the life you were supposed to be living.Maybe you were in the wrong relationship.
Or you were in some hostile work environment doing what you thought you should do or you were creatively thwarted, you felt spiritually disconnected.And what if you started getting little inklings from the body, little physical symptoms you know, the body's trying to tell you something and you ignore it, 'cause you're supposed to do what you're doing.And then the body totally decompensates.Can you think about a time in your life where something like that has happened yeah, i see a lot of noddings.Yeah, me too.Same thing happened to me.
So this is what the body does, the body is brilliant this way, the body speaks to us in whispers.And if we ignore the whispers of the body, the body starts to yell.Millions of people in this country are ignoring the whispers of the body.We are suffering from an epidemic that modern medicine has no idea what to do with.People suffering from this epidemic are fatigued, they're anxious and depressed, they toss and turn at night, they've lost their libido.They suffer from a whole variety of aches and pains,.
So they go to the , 'cause something is wrong.And the runs a whole battery of tests, and the tests all come back normal, so the patient gets diagnosed as well.Only the patient does not feel well.So she goes to another and she starts the whole process over again, because something is clearly wrong.And it is wrong, it's just not what she thinks.I used to work in a really busy managed care practice, i was seeing 40 patients a day.And i would get so freaking frustrated with these patients.
They would come in and it was so obvious they were really suffering.And i'd run the tests, everything would come back normal, i'd diagnose them well, and they'd look at me like no, i'm not well, something's wrong.And i felt so frustrated because i couldn't come up with a diagnosis.And they just wanted, please god, give me a pill.And there was no pill, there's no pill to treat it, there's no lab test to diagnose this epidemic, there's no vaccine to prevent it, no surgery to cut it out.
It wasn't until years later that i realized i was suffering from the same epidemic my patients were.By the time i was 33 years old, i was your typical physician.I had succeeded in everything i ever wanted to achieve in my life, i thought.I had all the trappings of success, the ocean front house in san diego, the vacation home, the boat, the big fat retirement account, so i could be happy one day in the future.I was twice divorced by that point.I had been diagnosed with high blood pressure.
I was taking three medications that failed to control my blood pressure and i had just been diagnosed with precancerous cells of my cervix that needed surgery.Even more importantly i was so disconnected from who i was, so totally disillusioned with my job, so completely spiritually tapped out, that i didn't even know who i was any more.I'd covered myself up with a whole series of masks.I had the mask, like when you put on the white coat, stand up on a pedestal, pretend you got it all together,.
You know it all.And i am also a professional artist, so i had the artist mask, where you've got to be, you know, dark and brooding, mysterious starving, that wasn't me either.And then i had gotten married a third time, you know, third time is a charm.So now i've got this dutiful wife mask i've gotta wear, where i've got to get dinner on the table and make sure that i've got the right sexy lingerie on.And then i got pregnant and all of sudden there's this huge mummy mask you're supposed to wear, right.
You guys know the mummy mask.You're supposed to instantly inherit the gene that makes you capable of baking the perfect cupcake.That's where i was, wearing all those masks, when my perfect storm hit.And at this point in my life, it was january 2006, and i gave birth to my daughter by csection, my sixteenyearold dog died, my healthy young brother wound up in fullblown liver failure from the antibiotic zithromax, and my beloved father passed away from a brain tumor, all in two weeks.I had just started to take a breath, when my husband,.
Who was the stay home for my newborn, cut two fingers off his left hand with the table saw.Yeah they say when your life falls apart, you either grow, or you grow a tumor.Fortunately for me i decided to grow, there was something in me.Sark called it my inner wise self , which i call your inner pilot light.It said, it's time to take the masks off.It's time to stop the madness.It's time to stop doing what you should, and start doing what you feel..
And in that moment i knew i had to quit my job.Now, this was a huge deal, right i spent 12 years training to be a and hundreds of thousands of dollars and we had all the trappings, you know, the house, the mortgage, all the stuff, right my husband was not employed and i had a newborn.I also had to pay a malpractice tail to buy my freedom, a sixfigure malpractice tail, in case i ever got sued in the future.So i decided to do it, and god bless my husband, who said let's jump together.
And i quit my job and i had to sell my house and liquidate my retirement account and move to the country and i spent a few months painting and writing and licking my wounds.Laughter applause it wasn't until about nine months later, everybody was like nine months! i'm an obgyn! nine months later i realized you can quit your job but you can't quit your calling.And i had been called at a very young age, i was seven years old, to the service, the practice, the spiritual practice of medicine.
And that calling hadn't gone away.I had gotten so wounded by the system that i didn't even notice it anymore but it came back after i had rested and healed after a little while.But i knew i couldn't go back, i couldn't be seeing 40 patients a day, 7,5 minutes with my patients, that wasn't why i went to medical school.So it began this quest, that turned into an almost fiveyear quest now, to rediscover what i loved about medicine.So that also meant i had to figure out what i hated about medicine.
So i started by blaming everybody it was the ambulance chasing malpractice attorneys it's big pharma it's managed care medicine it's the insurance company's fault.Then i thought, oh no, it's the reductionist medical system, we're so, so subspecialized, you know i'm an obgyn, so i was seeing these patients that had pelvic problems.But i knew that there was something bigger than the pelvis that was causing their issues.But i hadn't been trained to really look at that.So i thought that's the problem, like you go to your ,.
Your pinky finger hurts and he says, i'm sorry, i'm a thumb .Laughter nobody's looking at the whole picture.So i thought integrative medicine was the answer.And so i joined an integrative medicine practice, and it was so much better i got a whole hour with my patients.I really got to listen to my patients, we didn't accept managed care medical insurance, so it was really so much better.And then i still kept bumping up against something though, because now if you came in and you were depressed.
We were giving you herbs and amino acids instead of prozac.If you had other physical symptoms but it was still this allopathic model, where the answer was outside of you, and i had to give you something that you could take.So i thought maybe that's not the problem, maybe i need to look outside of that and find new tools for my healing toolbox.So i started working with all these complementary and alternative health care providers, whom i love, acupuncturists, naturopaths and nutritionists.And i started treating my patients with needles in their energy meridians.
And raw foods, and that was great.But i kept bumping up against the same thing patients would get better from one symptom and if we didn't treat the root cause of why they had that physical symptom in first place, they just wound up getting a new symptom.So at this point i was both really frustrated and really curious, and i started down this path of trying to figure out what really makes a body healthy, and what really makes us sick.And i dug into the medical literature and spent a year researching.
All of the randomized controlled clinical trials out there.And i decided this is it, i'm going to figure it out, i'm going to find the answer.And i spent hours in the library, researching, reading, studying.What i found blew my frigging mind, stuff nobody ever taught me in medical school.All the things we think of as health, all the things we think matter, they do.It matters that you exercise, it matters that you eat well, it matters that you see the .But nobody taught me that 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.The data on this is unbelievable.Lots of it is not in the traditional journals that you read, that s read, a lot of its in the psychological literature, the sociological literature.But if you look deep, this is in the new england journal of medicine,.
It's in the journal of the american medical association, it's coming out of harvard and yale and johns hopkins.This is real data proving that these things are just as important, if not more.I have this patient, she's a raw vegan, she runs marathons, she takes 20 supplements a day, she sleeps eight hours a night, she does everything her tells her, she's got a chart this fat, and she's still got multiple health problems.So she had heard about my philosophy i had started practicing with my patients,.
And i have an intake form that's about 20 pages long and it asks about all those things, relationships, work life, spiritual life, creative life, sex life, all of these things that make you whole.So she came and she filled out her form and she said, , what's my diagnosis and i said, honey, your diagnosis is you're in a freaking abusive marriage.You hate your job, you feel creatively thwarted, you're spiritually disconnected, and you haven't let go of that resentment you have against your father who molested you as a child.
Your body is never gonna get well until you heal that.So if taking care of the body isn't the most important part of being healthy, what is it's caring for the mind, caring for the heart, caring for the soul, tapping into what i call your inner pilot light.Now your pilot light is that part of you, that essence, that authentic, deep, true part of you, that spiritual, divine spark that always knows what's right for you.You're born with it, it goes with you when you die, and it always knows the truth about you and your body.
It comes to you and whispers it's your intuition it's that beautiful part of you that is your biggest fan the part that writes you love letters.And that is the biggest healer you can tap into, better than any medicine, better than any .So based on everything that i learned, i developed a new wellness model.And it was based, not on the pie charts and pyramids that many of the wellness models i had studied were based on.I based it on the cairn.Have you guys seen these things around san francisco.
These stacks of balanced stones, i love them, i've always loved them.I'm an artist, so it appeals to me visually.But i love the interdependence.Every stone is dependent on the other you can't just pull one stone out without the whole thing crumbling.And the stone that's most precarious is the one on top.That's the body, that's where i think of the body.The body is the stone on top.When any of the facets of what makes you whole get out of balance, the body is the first to start whispering,.
And the foundation stone is your inner pilot light, that true essence of you, that vulnerable, transparent part of you.So based on that, i created this model, that i call the whole health cairn.And this is what my next book is about.An it's taking all of the facets of what makes you whole it's about selfhealing from the core, and once you recognize this, then you have all the tools you need to start your own healing journey.So all of the facets of what makes you whole are surrounded.
By what i call the healing bubble.This is love and gratitude and pleasure.And science proves that all of those things are good for your health as well they are the glue that hold everything together.So i challenge you.If you have any physical symptom, if you're suffering from the epidemic that plagues the developed world, i want you to ask yourself, what's the real reason i'm sick or suffering, what's out of balance in my whole health cairn what's the real diagnosis and what can you do about it.
How can you be more transparent how can you open yourself up to more possibility how can you be more honest with yourself about what you need and who you are if any of you were lucky enough to see brene brown's awesome tedtalk about the power of vulnerability i feel a lot of nodding heads, i love it it's so fabulous, but it talks about the science behind being true, being vulnerable, being transparent.It generates love and intimacy which increases oxytocin and endorphins, and reduces harmful stress hormones like cortisol and adrenalin.
When we let our true self be seen, when we let our inner pilot light radiate, we heal from the inside out and it's more powerful than anything medicine can give you from the outside.So i challenge you to write the prescription for yourself.No can do this for you.We can give you drugs, we can give you surgery, and sometimes you need that, that's the jumpstart of the selfhealing process.But to heal to the core, so that you don't develop new symptoms, so you don't need another surgery you gotta write your own prescription.
How 18thCentury Medicine Killed George Washington
If you ever invent a time machine and travel back to any time before, say, the 1940s, you'd better hope you don't get sick.Oldenday medicine was bad.Like, really bad.A strep infection would often turn into scarlet fever and was fatal a lot of the time.These days you usually just get a round or two of antibiotics.And for a long time, a 's solution to practically everything would just be to take a bunch of blood out of your body, a practice known as bloodletting.They had their reasons, and they didn't know a great deal about the world, so i'm.
Not going to blame them too much, but a lot of the time s would make things worse.And if you were someone as important as george washington, and you got lots of attention from s well, that medical attention might end up killing you.The final days of the first american president are a pretty vivid illustration of how socalled medical science just two hundred years ago often did more harm than good.On december 12, 1799, washington spent most of the day working outside, in snow and freezing rain.
When he finally got home, he was cold and wet, but he refused to change into dry clothes, because that would've made him late for dinner.From modern medicine, we know that being cold and wet isn't what actually makes you sick.But it can lower your core body temperature, weakening your immune system and making you vulnerable to infection.And that's probably what happened to washington, because the next day, he woke up with a sore throat and a cough.He went out to work on the plantation anyway even though it had snowed the night before.
to help clear some trees.By the evening of the 13th, he was a lot worse.And around 2 in the morning on the 14th, he woke up with chills, fever, and trouble breathing.His wife, martha, wanted to go get the , but she had also been sick recently, so washington wouldn't let her go.They sent for the in the morning eventually they'd end up with three different s and meanwhile, one of his staff removed about a quarter of a liter of his blood.
Over the course of the following day, almost two and a half liters of washington's blood was drained that's about 40 percent of all of the blood in his body.For reference, these days hospitals will do a transfusion if a patient loses more than 30 of their blood.40, and it's time for serious resuscitation.But s used bloodletting in washington's time, because medicine back then was often based on an ancient idea that health comes from a balance of bodily fluids, called humors.If you were sick, that must mean that your humors weren't balanced and since bloodletting.
Removed lots of fluid, it would help restore that balance.It was used to treat all sorts of issues, from smallpox to acne.Of course, mostly it just made things worse.Because you need your blood.It does important things, like getting oxygen to all of your tissues, and getting rid of wastes, even the simple stuff, like carbon dioxide.Along with the bloodletting, washington's s diagnosed him with quinsy, or a pocket of pus near his tonsils.These days we call this a peritonsillar abscess and it was.
Making it hard for him to breathe.So the next thing they tried was blistering his throat by applying cantharidin, a secretion that causes severe chemical burns, derived from a type of beetle called spanish fly.If that sounds awful, it was.The s wanted washington's throat to blister, again to supposedly help draw out fluids and balance the humors in his throat, where he had symptoms.But all this did was burn his throat, giving his immune system something else to battle instead of fighting off whatever was actually wrong with him.
So, the blisters didn't help, and then after some more bloodletting, they gave the former president an enema.Then, they gave him an emetic, to make him vomit thinking that his digestive fluids needed to be balanced.Now, washington was dehydrated.This only made matters worse, because they'd removed several liters of his blood, and his body was trying to make more but blood is about half water.So by this point, he was not doing well.Oh god.They tried bleeding him again, and at around 5 in the afternoon, he seemed a little better.
at least for a few minutes.And then that's when he started having a lot more trouble breathing.The s gave washington some more blisters on his arms and legs, but that didn't make him any better.He died between 10 and 11 pm on saturday, december 14, 1799, at the age of 67.Even back then, people thought the s might have gone a little overboard with the bloodletting.But for the most part, they were really just going with what they knew what medicine truly believed about health at the time.
Ever since, s have been trying to figure out what was actually wrong with washington, and how we might have cured him if it had happened today.It probably wasn't a peritonsillar abscess, because that would have mainly affected one side of his throat.But both sides of washington's throat were sore and swollen.From his symptoms, it seems like he had acute epiglottitis, an infection in the flap of cartilage that covers your windpipe when you swallow.It gets worse very quickly, and it can be fatal if it gets swollen enough to block the.
Patient's windpipe.Could washington have lived if the s hadn't tried to intervene maybe, maybe not.He definitely would have had a better chance, though.These days, we vaccinate against the bacteria that can cause epiglottitis, but it is still a serious illness.Generally, hospitals will treat patients with antibiotics to fight the infection, corticosteroids to reduce inflammation, and if necessary intubation, where a breathing tube is inserted into the throat, below the epiglottis.In washington's day, intubation was still a very new procedure.One of his s did.
Suggest trying it, but the other two thought it was too dangerous.In the end, the misconceptions that framed oldenday medicine probably made the president a lot worse.So if you ever do travel in time, please stay within range of evidencebased medicine.Thanks for watching this episode of scishow, which was brought to you by our patrons on patreon.If you want to help support this show, you can go to patreonscishow thank you to all of you that have done that, it is really wonderful.And if you just want.Alternative medical systems when do they work best dr devi shetty with sadhguru,Renowned cardiac surgeon dr devi shetty founder of narayana hrudayalaya asks sadhguru if medical systems other than allopathy can be effective.
