Lissa Rankin, MD is a mind-body medicine physician, founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute training program for physicians and other health care providers, and the New York Times bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself. She is on a grass roots mission to put the "care" back in health care, and to heal our broken health care system - one doctor and one patient at a time.
Discouraged by our broken health care system and curious why some patients do everything "right" but still wind up sick, Lissa set out to discover why some patients experience miraculous cures from seemingly incurable illnesses, while others remain sick even when they receive the best medical care. She researched what really makes people healthy and what predisposes them to illness - not just diet, exercise and standard healthy behaviors, but everything else. What she uncovered in the mainstream medical literature led her to develop a type of medical practice she terms "Whole Health Medicine," based on the scientifically-proven healthy behaviors she shares in Mind Over Medicine. She is now leading a health care revolution to empower patients to heal themselves, while encouraging the health care industry to embrace and facilitate, rather than resist, such medical "miracles."
Lissa's work is featured on a hit public television special Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine, which aired nationwide. She also delivered three popular TEDx talks, and she is on the speaking circuit with Hay House's "I Can Do It" conferences. Lissa's work has also been featured on over 30 television shows, over 50 radio shows, and in publications such as O Magazine, the New York Times, Health, Women’s Health, Forbes, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Fox News, Huffington Post, People, Woman’s Day, WebMD, and CNN.

Alicia Navarro became an entrepreneur at an early age, with several ventures under her belt before Skimlinks. She studied technology, earning the university medal for Computing Sciences at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. She worked for over 10 years with a series of telcos, media companies and startups, designing and launching mobile and internet-based applications in Australia and the UK. She eventually launched Skimbit, a company offering social decision-making tools, in London in 2007. The following year, at the heart of the financial crisis, she pivoted Skimbit into Skimlinks, after users and investors showed interest in the automated affiliate marketing technology she’d developed to monetize her site. She now splits her time between London and San Francisco.
Since 2007, Alicia has grown the company to over 60 employees across offices in London, San Francisco and soon, Tokyo; has raised $10m in venture capital funding; and last year, drove annual retail sales of $500M.
Alicia's vision for Skimlinks is to see online publishers rewarded for the role they play in informing purchase decisions, by removing the technical and administrative complexities that hamper would-be affiliates. This, she believes, will help evolve affiliate marketing into a mainstream ubiquitous revenue model.
