Episode Summary

Each and every one of us is dealing with trauma. When trauma, no matter how severe, is left unattended, it can spiral into all kinds of illness. Dr. Lissa Rankin has studied this connection from many different perspectives and understands how to address it to regain control over your health.

Dr. Lissa Rankin is a New York Times best-selling author, a speaker, physician, and mystic, as well as the creator of The Daily Flame and the founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute. Passionate about what makes people optimally healthy and what predisposes them to illness, she discovered that connecting with your “Inner Pilot Light” is essential to optimal health, making your body ripe for miracles.

Lissa takes us on her incredible journey into integrative medicine which combines her passions for science and spirituality. She has made it her mission to study and explore how trauma-induced stress makes us sick and how to heal from it. To that end, Lissa describes how our bodies’ natural abilities to heal take place when we address the underlying trauma that we’ve experienced and listen to all various inner-parts of ourselves that need to be heard in order to thrive.

Have you taken steps to clear the trauma in your system? Let’s talk about it in the comments below.


“Twelve years of learning to follow my inner pilot light has completely reorganized my entire life and my entire world-view.” [10:00]

“More than ninety percent of doctor visits are related to stress and yet we’re not talking about where the stress comes from and most of it comes from trauma.” [12:58]

“As long as the lifeforce is moving in the body, then the body’s wisdom or natural intelligence will know how to distribute that lifeforce to heal whatever might be getting out of whack.” [17:42]

“I think we’re in the process of turning medicine upside down.” [44:51]
