Jan 02, Brenda rated it it was amazing. As someone who's battled chronic pain, I was eager to read this book.. Would the author recommend returning to Old Testament dietary laws?
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! 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. 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.
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! Jan 09, Anne Campbell rated it it was amazing. A couple of months back, I volunteered to review a book by renowned author, physician, professor, and licensed mental health counselor, Rita Hancock, MD. To my surprise, she accepted my offer sent me a copy of her book.
I began reading it immediately, reading a chapter or two a day. 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 an A couple of months back, I volunteered to review a book by renowned author, physician, professor, and licensed mental health counselor, Rita Hancock, MD.
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 Jan 31, Teri Underwood rated it really liked it. An excellent book for those of us who believe our physical well-being is inextricably linked to our spiritual well-being.

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: 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 was not, however, required to offer a positive review. The opinions shared are mine based on reading the material. Jan 01, Tracy rated it liked it. I received a free book for this review. This book is written by a doctor who specializes in pain management. She shares how children tend to misunderstand things which produce lies in their thinking that stays with them for years.
In Cognitive therapy and Rational Emotive therapy, this is a strong part of the assumptions that is made and taught to clients. So, this premise has strong support within the mental health community. She takes this idea a step further and shows that Go Full disclosure: She takes this idea a step further and shows that God can help us to see these lies and help us see the truth. God's truth can help us heal from these lies.
I enjoyed the author's humor and her examples of patients that she has treated for pain. I am now curious to learn more about inner healing due to reading this book. Jan 10, Kalyn rated it it was ok Shelves: I really really like the concept in this book.
Even though I sort of knew that emotional stress could create physical problems, I never really thought about it like Dr. Rita explains in her book. However, I encountered some doctrinal issues that make me very unlikely to recommend this book to others. Rita goes in depth with two, how do I say, interesting visions, and later in the book, dives into the subject of physical healings through touch. Jul 25, Diana rated it it was ok. This book was intriguing at first. Midway through it lost me for many reasons. I finished it but was not pleased with the overall pace of the author.
