I have learnt over the years the first and foremost part of working with each individual is to first find out WHY!!!! You want to Become Well!!
Then the How & What each person wants to achieve therefore bringing in the Why! as to Change and Improvement.
The WHY! The DESIRE! for Optimal Health and Vitality has to Be Greater than the Desire to Remain the Same!!!
If this is not unlocked in the beginning there will be a blockage in your neuro body sequence as to you becoming well. You may have heard of the term neuro linguistic programming, this is using your brain and thoughts to program your mind so as to enable your body into working together to accomplish the changes that are needed to be made, in order for you to live a life of Health, Happiness and Vitality.
What are Some of the Blockages in Becoming Well
Firstly remembering that as a Naturopathic Doctor , the main focus is in restoring function and healing to the organs and tissue within your body. This has to happen in order for you to become well. Working together for your Body, Mind and Balancing the Inner You and what you want for your LIFE> When you become unwell your body is not working in sync. This is your body telling you that it would like some help.
In order to achieve Optimal Health it is necessary to have your brain and body working together in sync. You might say WHY? Firstly the brain and nervous system are highly communicative. So that your very thoughts will determine the messages that are sent from your brain throughout your body.
So not unlike our verbal communication if this is negative, angry, full of anxiety and stress. This is what will be communicated throughout your body, not to mention then how you will actually treat yourself and other people in your life. Whether the changes you wish to make involve healthy eating, improved relationships, being happier at work and so on. It all involves these three processes. Your Body, Mind and Soul or Inner YOU.
Did you know that every cell in your body is replaced every seven years? It’s true—at the cellular level, the oldest you get is about seven years old. I remember years ago hearing Deepak Chopra speak about this. He said that the only reason we keep creating the same body—or one that seems to deteriorate with age—is that we keep thinking the same thoughts over and over again. That is because all biological systems operate according to what are called “premature cognitive commitments” to the way reality is.
Where to Begin
It is important to commence with cognitive thinking processes to give you a base and foundation to commence moving forward with your life. Facing past experiences with truth, learning from them how you would like your life to change. This will enable you then with the understanding of putting tools, ideas, changes into place to bring your dreams to reality.
Optimal Health is all about giving you every opportunity to achieve your dreams, having the energy, vitality to put your goals and actions into place. So as to achieve your Dreams.
Getting Your Head into the Right Space
This is how: Your body is literally created by your beliefs—and subsequently your behaviour. The famous medical intuitive Edgar Cayce said it best, “The Spirit is the life, the mind the builder, and the body the result.” Here’s how that plays out: If you believe that it’s normal to develop chronic degenerative disease as you get older, then that is likely to be your experience. If you believe that middle age begins at about 80, then your experience will be entirely different. As it turns out, our cultural beliefs about what’s possible hold far more weight than our genes. And these beliefs translate into biological realities in our bodies.
The exciting part about all this is that when you change your beliefs and expectations, not only do you attract different circumstances in your life, your biology also changes. Hormones become balanced. Stress hormone levels plummet. And neurotransmitters boost your mood. This is how Mind, Body balancing will support you connecting all of your dimensions so you feel whole and most of all peaceful, happy within yourself.
It all starts with your habitual thoughts. Thoughts and beliefs with a high, ecstatic vibration create a flourishing life and flourishing biology. Thoughts of negativity, fear, anger, and dread create exactly the opposite. And over time, these kinds of thoughts manifest as your reality—in your body. And though it’s not possible to access and change all of our adverse beliefs in a day, it is possible, right this very moment, to use your own power to change your point of focus.
You can start right now. What is working well in your life? What parts of your body do you love? What feels really good? I know that we humans love drama. You know the old phrase about television news, “If it bleeds, it leads.” Well it’s true. But it’s also possible to enjoy lots of interesting drama in your life and still have a body that gets reborn regularly. It all depends on what you focus on. Focus on what is good and uplifting and your cells will respond. The better you thoughts get: the better your Life gets: the better your Life gets, the better you become.
This is how daily affirmations will work and support you changing negative thought patterns into positive thought patterns. You can choose an affirmation to suite the thought pattern you want to change, read this as many times a day as possible for a month.
