Self-healing

Tuesday, July 21, 2015
There is scientific proof that you can heal yourself. And this isn't limited to just the nuisance symptoms that decrease your quality of life such as low energy,aches and pains and waning vitality. It applies to chronic health conditions that Western medicine hasn't been able to successfully address, as well as life-threatening illnesses.  


The Eastern medical and the more "natural" health modals have known this for hundreds of years. Our own contemporary medical establishment has been proving that the mind can heal the body of over 50 years.  We call it the placebo effect. There's loads of data proving that the mind can believe itself well. (We can also think ourselves sick, this is known as the nocebo effect)


Patients treated with placebos don't just "feel" better, they are getting better. Bronchi dilate, warts disappear, colons become less inflamed, hair grows back on the heads of bald men, ulcers heal, as well as many other measurable physiological phenomena.


It turns out, the body has built in self-repair mechanisms that fix damaged proteins, repair DNA, eat up cancer cells and other infectious agents that our bodies are exposed to everyday.  This natural ability explains the spontaneous remissions that we hear about from seemingly "incurable" diseases. 


How do these things happen physiologically? Through the power of our thoughts!  A positive thought or emotion can trigger spontaneous repair within the body.  A negative thought or emotion can, conversely, help foster dis-ease.


What disables the body's natural self-repair mechanisms?  Stress. Stress flips on a series of physiological cascades associated with the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and the "fight or flight" response of the sympathetic nervous system.  


But here is the catch, the body can only repair itself when it is in a state of physiological rest.  Whenever your body is in stress overload, it shuts down self-repair. 


In October, I will be hosting a workshop to share not just the scientific proof that you can heal yourself, but also tips for using the power of the mind to optimize the body's natural self-repair mechanisms.  You'll learn how disease prevention and spontaneous remissions aren't just something that happens randomly, but something you can experience for yourself.
