The Health Benefits of Self-Healing

By Life Coach Adelaide | Self-Healing | No Comments

You may have read about, or heard people talking about, self-healing, but do you know what it is? What are its benefits? Does it even exist?

Self-healing most definitely does exist and, more importantly, it is something that anyone can do. In fact, you are doing it already.

There is an absolute connection between your mind and body — the mind affects the body and the body affects the mind. What you think and believe has an effect on your health.

You have probably heard of a phenomenon known as the placebo effect. In medical trials, around 30% of patients who are given a sugar pill under the impression that it is medication nevertheless make a recovery. This demonstrates the fact that what you believe causes healing to occur.

This is self-healing. We can all do it.

However, the pathway towards achieving this goal is likely be an individual one. This is because the body can be affected by unconscious beliefs, or events that happened in the past but which are now forgotten or suppressed. We may come to know them by thinking hard about them, or investigating our thoughts and beliefs around particular issues, but it can still be difficult to find a way to let them go , so as to believe in something different. This is because there could be negative emotions attached to events in the past that have remained in your unconscious, and which are still affecting you and impacting on your health.

For instance, you may have experienced losses in your life, but haven’t had the chance to grieve properly. Perhaps you just got on with your life and didn’t process the emotions that accompanied your loss. At the same time, however, when you sit down and think about this loss and the events surrounding it, negative emotions surface. These emotions may be the result of beliefs that you hold, and in turn they may be affecting your body and your health.

However, if you can address the underlying thoughts and issues that are affecting your health, you may find that you gain some physical relief.

In order to do this, you might find it beneficial to enlist the support of someone who can help you to address these underlying issues. This could be a psychologist, a NLP practitioner, or someone qualified in Mainspring. (Mainspring is a mind body complementary modality through which it is possible to gain some relief from migraines, for instance.)

Whichever path you choose to pursue, it is nevertheless important that any underlying physical causes affecting your health and wellbeing are investigated first.

At the same time, however, it may well be worth your while to address the underlying issues impacting your health using a psychological approach. Self-healing is real and its benefits are clear.
