For years we have used the phrase “the power of positive thinking’ without knowing very much about how or where this power actually came from. In fact, for hundreds of years, the brain was thought to be totally separate from the rest of the body having been declared so by the French philosopher Rene Descartes and the British scientist Sir Isaac Newton.
These were Western perceptions, which ran very counter to thinking in India and China where the mind and body were thought to very closely related to each other. Influenced by Western thinkers we got stuck with the separation view and our medical community was unconvinced of any connection until the 1970s. This change in thinking began when scientists like Candace Pert conducted research on the structure and function of cells that started to show a connection between the mind and the body
We have known that disease can be caused by toxins, genes, stress, lack of exercise, and poor nutrition, but we now must add the mind as a powerful determining factor. In fact, the mind may be the conductor of this orchestra helping the body to heal itself by creating and activating all of the right chemicals, as well as the on and off switches, after all of the other elements are in place.
Detoxify, manage stress, exercise, eat healthy and let positive thinking take it from there.
