For most of us, pharmaceutical medicine does nothing to restore a belief in ourselves or purpose in our lives. And without love, life is not worth living. Neither drugs nor surgery will give you any of these. I developed TheBodyIsMind.com and the Ultimate Healing Guide™ for many reasons. Primary among them was knowing that the pills and surgery of modern medicine do not address the role our consciousness plays in healing. Three other main reasons drove my passion and productivity.
“Belief can be so strong that pharmaceutical companies use double- and triple-blind randomized studies to try to exclude the power of the mind over the body when evaluating new drugs.” Dr. Joe Dispenza, author of the book You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter
First, after 30 years of neglect of my health and avoidance of chronic pain management, I made remarkable progress towards self-healing in just a couple of months. I found great relief through a combination of therapies and self-care modalities my doctor never told me about; I discovered them for myself. Now, after 30 years of dealing with chronic pain, I’ve finally made some choices which have rewarded me with amazing results and positive progress. But taking my health seriously didn’t happen until I first reconnected with my heart and learned self-compassion.
Second, as a U.S. Veteran of the U.S. Navy, I’ve made it my mission to help fellow Veterans and consequently the millions of people nationwide and around the world who suffer from chronic pain and stress-related conditions. During my journey, I’ve discovered 101+ alternative methods to try before resorting to spinal fusion surgery for my neck or becoming dependent upon any prescription painkillers. After witnessing Veterans who have found no relief with drugs or surgery but instead find themselves in a spiral of hopelessness and despair, I could not stand by and do nothing.
Finally, there was no single resource online that brought together all the viable self-care methods available in the world. Other websites are focused on defining what’s wrong with us, side-effect descriptions and dosage warnings for our prescription drugs, and the names of every possible thing that can go wrong with our body.
In an age when we’re all used to medicines and surgeries for everything that ails us, there are plenty of websites with tons of information about how to manage our medicines.What was missing was a comprehensive guide that could educate people on modern self-healing principles and the-body-is-mind approach as it applies to real life.
Until now, there was no complete common sense guide to help us quickly find a complete menu of alternative therapies and healing techniques. These self-care wellness activities and therapies are not always covered by your insurance, because they help keep you out of the medical-pharmaceutical system to begin with.
What the Doctor Doesn’t Know May Hurt Us
For thousands of years, humankind has struggled to define the nature of ourselves, and the relation between self, mind, body, brain, spirit, and soul. Do we define our existence by what can be seen (our body) or what cannot be seen (consciousness, mind, spirit), or is it a combination of both?
People argue over whether we have a soul, whether God exists, whether our consciousness arises from our biology, or whether our biology arises from higher consciousness. How we see this relationship between ourselves and the universe is the basis for our very core beliefs. These fundamental principles of our existence give rise to religion, spirituality, science, and politics.
In the current state of pharmaceutical medicine, most doctors define us as a body only, and therefore only treat that piece. Psychologists treat the mind and psychiatry takes care of the brain.
There is more to us though. What passes for medicine today is nothing but a strongly competitive commercial business model. How is it there are more than 100 ways which our doctors have never told us about to reduce or eliminate chronic pain? Why is it that pharmaceuticals are always the go-to option, especially considering all the harsh side-effects? Why does every magazine I read start with a two-page advertisement for a more powerful drug?
Western medicine has tried with determination to separate mind and body for several hundred of years. Since the dawn of the scientific method, the separation between materialistic and spiritualistic schools of thought have driven medical science to treat the mind, body, and consciousness as separate things. And, with pharmaceutical-driven medicine, drugs are, for the most part, the first and only option to treat all three aspects of ourselves.
The most profound discoveries in relation to how the consciousness affects the mind and body have been made within the last ten years.
The good news is a remarkable story is beginning to emerge which simplifies the nature of our existence and makes it easy for us to discover a path towards the ultimate healing of body, mind, and self. The role consciousness plays in the remarkable self-healing stories we’re hearing from all around the world is finally being taken into more serious consideration by the people in the West.
The body and mind are one in the same. The body is mind, and we can heal our body and mind without pills or high-risk experimental surgery.
The Body-Mind Science of the 21st Century
Within psychotherapy, it is now widely understood that the body is the subconscious mind. Healing is not possible without considering this vital truth. This makes existing medicine as we know it obsolete. This new perspective changes our entire approach to holistic medicine and whole-body wellness goals.
With this relatively new (but ancient) understanding of the nature of ourselves, we have come to learn that the mind permeates every cell of the human body. We now know the trauma from all our emotional and physical pain is stored in the body; our body remembers!
We also know that everything which has ever happened to us is stored throughout the body, not just the brain. The implications of this are that previous understandings should be thrown out the window. (NERD ALERT: for anyone interested, our body could be considered to be organic holographic memory).
Furthermore, we now know, without a doubt, that our body as the mind has dominion over our brain; that our brain, body, and mind are not separate systems; and that our conscious self-awareness has ultimate command over all three (brain, body, and mind).
These startling new insights have given rise to Mind-Body Science and Mind-Body Medicine. These modern bodymind concepts regarding wellness are the salvation from trauma, pain, and suffering for the entire world.
In other words, there is more HOPE nowthan ever before. Welcome to the 21st century! Modern technology makes self-healing a real possibility for nine out of ten people living today. And it doesn’t start with a pill or surgery; it begins with the rehabilitation of your self-awareness, a release from your trauma, and the recovery of your capacity to love yourself – and which usually involves the mending of one’s heart.
Let’s put youback into the command seat of your bodymind.
This concept could be stated as: self + bodymind.
Taking Back Control
We perceive that our emotions (body) and thoughts (mind) can take control of our free will (conscious self). For example, losing your mind.
We can also experience times when our conscious free-will takes control over our emotions and thoughts. For example, making healthy choices.
When we are out of control, the bodymind has power over us, and wefeel helpless.
When we give up our freedom of choice and personal responsibility for our health to a medical system, we are also out of control, and in many cases, we end up with even more pain and despair.
Many doctors and surgeons are turning away from their pharmaceutical-industry training to embrace the new wellness system which includes treating self+bodymind as a complete unit.
The end-result of self-body-mind synchronicity is self-healing. You already have god-like self-healing powers hiding inside every single one of your body’s cells, and all you need to do is reach inside and find it. Obviously easier said than done, but you must begin the search!
The only things which can stand in your way of finding your god-like powers of healing are 1) limiting personal beliefs, 2) physical and emotional trauma, and 3) a lack of love or compassion for oneself.
All three of these shortcomings can now be healed. You canbe healed!
Learn to calm your body and wind down your mind beforea flare-up. Combine enough healing modalities, and magic happens: we begin to walk the path towards healing. We take back control of our wellness when we treat ourselves with a bit of self-compassion and practice more methods of self-care more often.
You already have everything you need to heal yourself… but only if you believe it’s true.
