Healing and Preventing Diseases

In Radical Remission – Surviving Cancer Against all Odds (2014), Dr Kelly A.Turner found that there are thousands of cases published in medical journals of people who had healed their cancer after doctors had decided that they were not expected to live.

She decided to interview over one hundred of such cases and analyse over one thousand written cases, to find the factors that led to the ‘miracle’ cure. Those factors were many, about 75, but there were 9 that kept showing up consistently.

So here are the 9 things that you can be doing to radically help reverse cancer or, if you don’t have cancer, to do anyway to prevent it and other diseases in future.

  1. Radically change your diet
  2. Take active control of your health
  3. Follow your intuition
  4. Take herbs and supplements
  5. Release suppressed emotions
  6. Increase positive emotions
  7. Reach out for more social support
  8. Deepen your spiritual connection
  9. Have strong reasons to live

Looking at that list, a body mindfulness practice can help and enhance about 7 of those factors.

That’s one powerful practice.

A quick snapshot of each factor:

  1. To change your diet – cut out sugars, dairy and reduce meat.
  2. Be actively involved in your health (don’t just sit around wishing), be willing to make changes, face your fears and don’t automatically do everything a doctor says you must do.
  3. Your body wisdom knows what’s best for you, listen to it.
  4. Strengthen your immune system with supplements.
  5. Blocked emotions and trauma seriously affect the immune systems ability to heal disease. This factor is massive and often overlooked.
  6. Increase the fun, joy and love in your life. Deepen your inner connection.
  7. Receiving love from others helps the body to heal. Family and friends can provide the love that boosts the body’s healing ability. Doing anything that stops you from feeling alone is what helps.
  8. Connect to the unconditional universal love that we are all part of. Merging with the peace of everything, where you are not separate from the whole. This spiritual energy can significantly help the body to heal. Pray and/or meditate to help quiet the mind noise.
  9. Expand your creativity, believe you will live, that you have a greater purpose and deserve to be fully alive.

Humanity/Healing – compared to – Medical/Medicine.

“My training as a doctor focused almost exclusively on science, relegating everything else to, at best, second-class status. When treatments didn’t work, instead of recognizing the impact of societal, cultural and systemic factors or limitations of our research and care, we blamed the patient or moved on to a better case.” (Dr Louise Aronson, Elderhood,Continue Reading

Getting Present through your Body

“As a path to mindfulness, body awareness offers a natural route. This is because, at its core, mindfulness is about living with greater presence, which is a natural state for our bodies, which are moving in the here and now. It is only our thoughts that can drift off into the past or the future.”Continue Reading

Allowing the Left Brain to serve the Right Brain

“what the left hemisphere can offer must be used in service of what the right hemisphere knows and sees, not the other way round. This is as important in the case of science as in that of imagination, in the case of reason as in that of intuition. The left hemisphere is a wonderful servant,Continue Reading

The Effort Required to Produce Quality Results

“ total are you in what you do? Is your doing surrendered or non-surrendered? This is what determines your success in life, not how much effort you make.” (Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks, 2003) Another timeless classic from Eckhart. This book came out a year before the world wide best seller, The Power of Now. ThisContinue Reading

Learn to say NO to a lot of things

“…focusing on everything means focusing on nothing. It’s almost impossible to accomplish anything significant when you’re racing through an endless litany of tasks and emergencies. And yet this is how many of us spend our days, weeks, months, years – sometimes, our entire lives.” (Michael Hyatt, Free to Focus, 2019) I’ve talked about this informationContinue Reading

Neuro-Immunologists – a western medicine group, that are finally getting it.

“It wasn’t considered professionally respectable to investigate connections between the brain – the province of neuroscience – and the immune system – the province of immunology.” (Edward Bullmore, PhD, The Inflamed Mind – A radical new Approach to Depression, 2018) I’m fascinated how the immune system and the nervous system interact. How inflammation in theContinue Reading

Your Body, Trauma and Confidence

“Research is also now starting to make clear the long term impact of early childhood trauma on people’s relationship to their own bodies (Price, 2007; Van der Kolk, 2014). Body awareness, body attitude and body satisfaction may all be negatively affected.” (Benjamin R, Haliburn J, King S, (Ed), Humanising Mental Health Care in Australia, 2019,Continue Reading

Your Second Brain

“Your gut has capabilities that surpass all your other organs and even rival your brain. It has its own nervous system, known in scientific literature as the enteric nervous system, or ENS, and often referred to in the media as the ‘second brain’. This second brain is made up of 50-100 million nerve cells, asContinue Reading

The Myths of Science

We all need help to increase our self healing abilities. This is still a vast untapped resource within us. The potential within you is vast. Most of us are hardly tapping much of it. Why? One of the biggest road blocks to expanding your effectiveness in self healing body mindfulness I believe, is how weContinue Reading
