Publisher's Description

What’s blocking you from experiencing total wellness?
Research increasingly shows a strong connection between our spiritual life, our emotions, and our physical well being. Yet too often our physical conditions are treated without taking our whole lives into account.  In Radical Well-being, Dr. Rita Hancock shows you how your mind, body, and spirit are connected and addresses the factors that can contribute, and even cause, illness, addictions, and chronic pain.
 
If you suffer from medical conditions like fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, neck or back pain, irritable bowel syndrome, jaw pain, food and drug allergies, depression, anxiety, or unwanted behaviors such as overeating, an eating disorder, overspending, drug abuse or alcoholism, Radical Well-being will show you a biblical, whole-body approach to overcoming your condition. With nearly twenty years of experience counseling patients from a balanced, mind/body/Holy Spirit perspective, Dr. Rita gives you practical nuts-and-bolts advice, including how to:
 
·           Identify the lies that are manipulating you from a subconscious level
·           Deal with emotional factors that can make your pain seem worse
·           Address addictive behaviors that you want to get rid of
·           Fully accept God's love and forgiveness on a deep, healing level
 
True freedom and improved health come when deeply-rooted lies are illuminated and replaced with knowledge from the merciful heart of God. Radical Well-being will help you feel better in all three domains--in your mind, body, and in your spirit. You will end up feeling the way one of Dr. Rita's patients put it: "Like the weight of a skyscraper has been lifted off my shoulders."

    An excellent book for those of us who believe our physical well-being is inextricably linked to our spiritual well-being. Dr. Hancock presents a well-researched and well-supported case for a biblical view of living well. Each chapter ends with "Action Points," prayer prompts to help the reader in the journal toward healing.

    My favorite section of the book was Part 4: Taking Captive Every Thought: How Right Thinking Leads to Right Actions. In this section, Dr. Hancock deals with issues such as comparison, fear, perfectionism, and difficult family relationships to show how spiritual issues have a real impact on our physical issues.

    I appreciated her use of Scripture to establish God's desire for healing in our lives—in all areas. I found this book to be immensely practical and would highly recommend it to anyone who desires to understand the connection between our spiritual health and our physical health.

    I'll be honest. When I first began reading, I wasn't too sure about this doctor's approach to healing. Connecting the spiritual, physical, and mental to achieve healing of, say, migraine headaches seemed optimistic and simplistic.

    I was raised to believe doctors were the answer--they knew everything about the body and how to heal it. I looked on doctors with almost hero worship.

    Years later I became a Christian, and I found out firsthand that sometimes God heals supernaturally with no help from doctors. Again, hero worship, this time of One who deserved worship.

    However, it never occurred to me to connect abuse as a child with migraine headaches. In this case Dr. Hancock made a believer of me. She takes this book through cure after documented cure to demonstrate her points; the more I read, the more I nodded in agreement. I think if you read her book, you will concur. I give this book and this author a four-and-a-half thumbs up. (Don't ask where I got the extra thumbs...)

    Radical Well-Being: A biblical guide to overcoming pain, illness, & addictions by Rita Hancock, MD, ©2013

    Do you want Christian medical help to overcome depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, migraines, neck and back pain, IBS, TMJ, or compulsive behaviors like overeating or taking drugs or alcohol?

    About The Book

    If you suffer from chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, neck or back pain, or if you have irritable bowel syndrome, jaw pain, food and drug allergies, or even mental health issues like depression, anxiety, or unwanted behaviors such as overeating, an eating disorder, overspending, drug abuse or alcoholism, Radical Well-Being may be the right book for you. This is especially true if you desire an overtly Christian or biblical approach to solving your problem.

    Achieve the radical well-being God wants you to have in mind, body, and spirit.

    With nearly fifteen years experience counseling patients from a balanced, mind/body/Holy Spirit perspective, Dr. Rita gives you practical nuts-and-bolts advice, including how to:

    * identify the lies that are manipulating you from a subconscious level, e.g. "I'm worthless," "It's my fault," "I'm stupid," "I'm bad," "I'm ugly," "I'm dirty," "I'm damaged goods," etc.

    * fully receive biblical truth to replace those lies

    * heal the emotional factors that can make your pain and unwanted behaviors seem worse

    * overcome addictive behaviors like overeating, taking drugs or alcohol, over-shopping, etc.

    * overcome depression, anxiety, and anger issues that threaten your relationships

    * fully accept God's love and forgiveness on a deep, healing level

    Activate spiritual and genetic potential to become healthier, stronger, happier, sharper, and better.

    My Review

    Before I go on, let me clarify what this book is about. Even though my personal battle was with obesity, this isn't just a weight-loss book. This is a total health book. I tell you not only how to triumph over obesity but also how to triumph over chronic pain, stress-induced illness, depression, anxiety, anger, drug and alcohol abuse, and other types of physical, spiritual, and emotional bondage. --Dr. Rita Hancock, MD, Introduction, xiv

    Dr. Rita Hancock, MD, has brought an office visit for good health to your door: correcting the underlying thoughts and beliefs that have led you to where you are.

    "Behold, You desire truth in the inner being;

    make me therefore to know wisdom in my inmost heart."

    --Psalm 51:6, Amplified Bible

    Beyond one visit, Radical Well-Being will bring information and education in five areas:

    Part One: "You're No Good" ~*~ bad old lies and what they do to you (3 chapters)

    Part Two: The Whole You ~*~ connecting mind, body, and spirit (3 chapters)

    Part Three: The Spiritual You ~*~ seeing through God's eyes (3 chapters)

    Part Four: Take Captive Every Thought ~*~ how right thinking leads to right actions (9 chapters)

    Part Five: Hope in Your Future ~*~ biblical steps to healing and health (5 chapters)

    Each chapter closes with an Action Point: Questions to Ask God in Prayer

    ~*~ There is application that goes beyond reading. ~*~

    Disclaimer:

    People and names in this book are composites created by the author from her experiences as a medical doctor. Names and details of their stories have been changed.

    Dr Rita's book is not to take the place of professional expertise in person for you.

    I would say that Dr. Rita's book will lead you to the healing you need. God's truth and love win.

    "For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland."

    --Isaiah 43:19, Holy Bible, New Living Translation

    As someone who's battled chronic pain, I was eager to read this book. Initially I was intrigued, and a little skeptical of the "biblical guide" claim in the title. Would the author recommend returning to Old Testament dietary laws? Would she insist the pain is "in your head," and you just need to pray more? Maybe she would decree the presence of pain is due to a lack of faith.

    What a thrill to discover the book is none of those things! The author presents compelling evidence of the mind/body/spirit connection in an engaging and friendly manner. Her sense of humor and deep love for others is evidenced in numerous composite stories sprinkled throughout the book (or_in composite patient stories sprinkled throughout the book). It is largely those stories and the author's warm tone that change this book from a typical self-help guide into an interesting and personal conversation.

    Dr. Rita (as she calls herself) challenges readers to discover and address the deep, underlying issues that may be triggering addictions and chronic pain. While she spends a considerable amount of time discussing the effects of stress on our bodies, she is careful to note that not all pain, illness, and addictions are caused by unmanaged stress or other emotional difficulties.

    Readers are gently taught to see themselves through God's eyes, reach out to Him through prayer, and take control of their thought life. The last part of the book addresses Inner Healing counseling.

    If you are among the millions battling addictions or chronic pain, Radical Well-being will take you on an incredible journey of self discovery and healing. I highly recommend this book!

    Maybe you have been struggling for years with pain and/or addiction and just want to get well. You've tried doctors, pills, diets and exercise and still nothing works. Maybe you've even tried therapy. Could it be that you are treating the body without taking into account your emotional or spiritual health? Or maybe you are working on your emotions without adding the physical and/or spiritual health.

    Rita Hancock, MD, is a board-certified physical medicine specialist with a subspecialty board certification in pain management. She has been in full-time practice for 14 years and currently serves as the Oklahoma delegate for the Christian Medical and Dental Association as well as their official spokesperson on matters of diet and nutrition.

    Dr. Hancock's new book, "Radical Well-Being", addresses the connection between our spiritual life, our emotions and our physical well-being. She discusses how our lives can contribute to our health, addictions and chronic pain.

    Dr. Hancock defines symptoms, causes and treatments for many conditions and asks you to come to terms with your life, your emotions and your mind. She helps you look inside yourself for answers as well as giving you some options for your treatment.

    If you've tried everything else, it wouldn't hurt to try one more. In fact, you have nothing to lose except maybe your pain or an addiction you've been struggling with for years. Now is the time to reach your potential to become healthier, stronger, and better. Will you accept the challenge?

The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
