Your ‘Inner Doctor’
Today’s modern medicine can achieves amazing results, however it never HEALS anybody. This may sound strange, but really it is true. Think about it.The best doctor can only align or plaster a broken bone – the fusing and repairing of the bone needs to be done by your body’s ‘inner doctor’. The same is true for all other diseases: the doctor can only ensure optimum conditions for the workings and the healing that your own body’s forces have to achieve. Your ‘inner doctor’ is active around the clock: enzymes continuously repair defects in our genetic material (DNA), over a billion new skin cells get created in just one day and the inner surface of our intestines renews itself fully.
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.
