Is the placebo effect real? Or is it the body doing what it does best? What it does best is to heal and regenerate. When the body, mind and spirit are informed that it can heal, then, energetically, it can heal. And that is what the placebo effect is. It’s a belief, a re-programming, of our cells and belief systems. We are what we think. We attract to us who and what we think. Our thoughts will program our sub-conscious and we will receive what we think. We have choice to create our life, our relationships and our world. The placebo effect is but one example of that.
One of my favorite sayings is “we don’t know what we don’t know…and they don’t know what they don’t know”. Just because we may not “know”, doesn’t mean we can’t dream, create or identify what we desire. A saying that is even more profound and appropriate is from Albert Schweitzer, MD and Nobel Prize Laureate. “Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. We are at our best when we give that doctor who resides in us a chance to work.”
Lastly, my own quote: “Gift yourself health by being proactive and trusting your intuition”. Our intuition is our inner guidance system. If we take note of it, if we listen, we will realize that there is more than we know in the conscious mind. By tapping into “what we don’t consciously know” we can improve our outcomes in life, business, health and relationships. Just listen and trust.
On a health level, I believe that the body knows how to heal when the impediments to that healing are removed. Those interferences are physical, mental, energetic, emotional and spiritual.
There is yet another saying and I paraphrase: It makes no sense and is not practical reality to believe that a different outcome could occur if we continue to take the same actions and think the same thoughts.
