To Heal the Body, You Must Start with the Mind.

Illness Healing Aid
Healing comes in all forms.

Most times when we are ill, we become focused almost entirely on the physical aspect of healing.

We make sure we get plenty of rest, fluids, medicine and vitamins. However, in doing so, we often neglect the other forms of healing that are equally important.

For example, our mental health plays just as an important role in our overall well being as our physical health.

There have been many studies to suggest that when we are physically ill, that people who think positively often recover faster than those who think more negatively.

(CNN) -- Observers may have noticed recently that mainstream medicine is

taking a harder line against positive thinking.

Surveys of the leading research in the field conclude that recovery rates

from cancer, for example, are not higher among patients who take a positive

attitude about fighting their disease. Studies that show the reverse have

been small and, according to their critics, flawed in serious ways.

Anyone would be forgiven for throwing up their hands. This seems like another

example of dueling data, where one study's findings are contradicted by the

next study, leaving the public in a state of confusion.

Doctors are confused, too. It has always been part of a doctor's kit bag to

tell patients to keep their spirits up. Until a few decades ago, it was

standard not to acquaint a dying patient with the gravity of his condition,

which implies an unspoken agreement that hearing bad news isn't good for


At the same time, doctors want to protect their profession, so few want to

cross the line and support the notion that how you think can work as

powerfully as "real" medicine.

Let's see if some of this confusion can be cleared up. Deepak Chopra says there can be no denying that the mind-body connection is

powerful. Deepak Chopra says there can be no denying that the mind-body connection is


First of all, thinking is "real" medicine, as proven by the placebo effect.

When given a sugar pill in place of a prescription drug, an average of 30% of

subjects will show a positive response. What causes this response isn't a

physical substance but the activity of the mind-body connection. Expectations

are powerful. If you think you've been given a drug that will make you

better, often that is enough to make you better.

This implies that a person should be able to trigger the placebo effect on

himself. However, there is a psychological illusion involved. Take away the

authority figure in a white coat to tell you that you are taking an effective

drug, and suddenly the sugar pill is just a sugar pill. You can't fool

yourself when you know what the placebo is.

This can't be the whole story, however. We can't deny that the mind-body

connection is powerful. So is there a placebo effect that doesn't involve

fooling the patient? Can you trigger your own inner defenses by the way you


Those who believe in positive thinking say yes. I believe the situation is

more nuanced. On the plus side, the studies that debunk positive thinking

deal with very sick patients struggling to recover from major diseases. They

do not comment on how positive thinking might prevent disease or how it might

affect someone in the very early stages of illness.

The real point isn't to rescue a dying patient but to maintain wellness.

Does positive thinking keep you well? Right now the camps are divided,

because with the rise of genetics, many disorders clearly have triggers that

originate in our genes.

In the public's mind, being told that cancer or diabetes is genetic acts as

final authority. Luckily for the positive-thinking camp, this fatalistic

attitude is mistaken. Genes are dynamic, not fixed; they respond to a

person's environment, behavior and attitudes. Indeed, a now-famous study in

Sweden showed that a tendency to diabetes may be strongly affected by the

diet your great-grandfather ate. A whole new field is studying how much

choice we have at the genetic level.

The findings are not complete by any means, yet there is no harm in assuming

that your mind affects your genes, because there is abundant evidence to

support this attitude.

Medicine hasn't proven that positivity is good prevention, but let's go a

step further. To me, the problem with positive thinking is the thinking part.

It takes effort to be positive all the time. The mind has to defend itself

from negativity, and that is exhausting as well as unrealistic. You may

succeed in calming the appearance you present to the world, but there's

almost always a struggle hidden just below the surface; at the very least

there is a good deal of denial. Being fanatically positive is still


The alternative to thinking is a calm mind that is at peace with itself. I

believe that such a mind delivers the benefits that positive thinking cannot,

and my view is supported by studies showing a decline in high blood pressure,

stress levels and other disease states among long-term meditators.

Meditation is a spiritual practice, but it's also a mind-body practice. Here

the results are not final, either, in part because almost the only research

subjects tend to be Buddhist monks. We need expanded studies based on Western

subjects; that much is clear.

The upshot is that medicine cannot be definitive on how mood affects

wellness. But if I wanted to enhance a state of wellness before symptoms of

illness appeared, there is much to be gained and no risks involved in trying

to reach the best state of mind possible.


Expectations are powerful.

However, expectations take conscious effort and thought.

More so, when you are not used to creating them.

If you wait until the time when you are ill to begin trying to have positive thoughts and expectations, then you may find that you are under prepared.

That's akin to waiting until you have a car accident before you purchase auto insurance.

But what if there was a way for you to have positive healing messages already present in your mind BEFORE the illness strikes?

Even more so, positive healing messages that remain in your subconscious so that they remained with you...

...all of the time.

It is possible with the Illness Healing Aid.
