Radical Well-Being By Rita Hancock MD Giveaway

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."

As a board-certified physician in both Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Pain Management, Dr. Rita Hancock specializes in helping her patients achieve optimal function in spite of their arthritic, painful joints. One way she does this is by helping them lose weight. Dr. Rita has not only Ivy League training in nutrition and the psychology of obesity, but she also speaks from personal experience. She personally overcame a compulsive eating disorder and lost 75 pounds and kept it off for for over 27 years.
Since true health requires wellness in three dimensions: mind, body, and spirit, Dr. Rita also counsels her patients in regard to their emotional and spiritual well-being. This approach has allowed her to get to the root of otherwise unexplained pain and/or stress-induced illness in a large number of patients. 
Dr. Rita's books include The Eden Diet (Zondervan 2008) and The Eden Diet Workbook, which are about learning to eat in response to physical rather than emotional hunger. And her latest book is called Radical Well-being: A Biblical Guide to Overcoming Pain, Illness, and Addictions (Siloam, January 8, 2013). Radical Well-being offers a road map for finding relief if you suffer with conditions such as fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, neck or back pain, irritable bowels, depression, anxiety, or compulsive behaviors like overeating, consuming drugs or alcohol, over-spending, etc.--especially if you desire a biblical approach to the management of those conditions.
To enhance your well-being, Dr. Rita also produced a series of twenty-two minute audio recordings for stress-management and weight control. The series is called "Godly Affirmations For Weight Control" and is available on in the digital recordings store. Her specific recordings are entitled, "A Battle With The Flesh" (for food cravings control), "A Walk on the Beach" (for relief from emotional eating), "A Picnic at the Lake" (for eating properly at social events), and "A Walk in the Forest" (for learning to love exercise).
Dr. Rita writes from the Christian perspective and lives in Oklahoma City with her husband and children.

This is the second book by Rita that I have read and loved.
In this book she teaches you to heal with godlier thinking and she does it with  scriptures for emotional healing,scripture for self-talk and meditation,  and prayers for your emotional healing. In very easy to understand language.
I think the title should have been Emotional well being.
This is a book that should be on everyones book shelf. It is not your ordinary self help book, you will want to get a copy of this book and share it with all of your loved ones and friends. It is the best biblical guide that I have read.
I was given a copy of this book by the author.
