Featured Profile (Dr. Rita Hancock)
Recently, I had the pleasure of gaining a Facebook friend named Rita Hancock. In the time that we have become acquainted, I have been most impressed. Rita is a doctor (a pain management specialist) and likes to help people identify the emotional and spiritual factors that magnify their physical pain.
Dr. Rita has a wonderful new book coming out in January of 2013 and I wanted to tell you more about her upcoming book so you can check it out. Her book is called Radical Well-being: A Biblical Guide to Overcoming Pain, Illness, and Addictions.
Here’s more about her:
Dr. Rita Hancock (aka: “Dr. Rita”) is a board-certified physician in the areas of physical medicine and rehabilitation and pain management. But she also writes Christian health and wellness books, serves as the Oklahoma state representative in the House of Representatives of the Christian Medical and Dental Association, is a health blogger for The Christian Post and a columnist for Life:Beautiful magazine, and appears on radio and TV as a health and wellness expert.
Dr. Rita’s first book The Eden Diet (Zondervan, 2008) is about eating when you’re physically hungry rather than for emotional reasons.
Her second book, Radical Well-being: A Biblical Guide to Overcoming Pain, Illness, and Addictions (Siloam, January 2013) is about the mind-body-spirit connection and how to minimize emotional and spiritual conflict in order to reverse physical illness and pain. Suggested for those with fibromyalgia, migraines, TMJ, IBS, weight issues, substance abuse, unexplained rashes, depression, or anxiety

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.”
