Your ‘Inner Doctor’
Our thoughts and feelings can either support and strengthen or weaken our ‘inner doctor’.
Research on self-healing powers began with the psycho-sociologist Aaron Antonovsky (1923-1997), who introduced the concept of Salutogenesis. The term describes an approach focusing on factors that support human health and well-being, rather than on factors that cause disease. According to Antonovsky it is the body’s innate self-regulating forces which should be used wisely. Our thoughts and attitudes are one of the strongest forces. If we doubt our self-healing forces or if we allow anxiety to take over, then we directly interfere with our inner healer. If, however, we trust our body and nourish positive and supportive thoughts then we help activate the self-healing forces.
