The only person who can heal you is yourself

The human body is nature’s most sophisticated and astonishing creation. The intricate wiring of veins, the precise placement of organs, and the perplexing microscopic functions, all of these things work in absolute harmony and balance to keep us alive and well for up to several decades! Your body is the greatest gift that you will ever receive – it knows how to pump blood, how to heal cuts, how to protect itself from intruders, and even how to regenerate to some extent. Considering all of those things, it is, beyond any doubt, nature’s perfect design!

The one truth which the healthcare industry doesn’t want you to know…

The best thing about the human body is its innate ability to heal itself. Your body is completely aware of injuries, traumas, and even deficiencies, and takes appropriate measures to overcome these problems by itself. What surprises me the most is that many people aren’t even aware that their body has been blessed with this self-repairing function. It is this obliviousness which the billion-dollar healthcare industry thrives on. I have nothing against doctors and those who save lives every single day. But the greedy corporations that are a part of this industry do not want you to know that your body can, in fact, repair cuts, fix broken bones, and, of course, get rid of chronic pain.

That’s where the frustration kicks in…

Over the years, I have noticed that people tend to get frustrated and stressed after realising how many precious dollars they have wasted on appointments with doctors and on painkillers and other drugs, only to have their conditions either worsened or simply remain unaffected. If you too are one of those people and have tried virtually everything, then keep reading – I’m here to tell you that it’s never too late to begin the journey of self-healing. And the best part is that it’s extremely easy and free from all kinds of drugs and medical costs!

Steps to heal yourself

Without further ado, here are the steps that you need to take in order to start healing yourself:

1.      Have faith in your body’s healing ability

A wise person once said: “Worrying ends when faith begins.” So the first step that you need to take in order to start healing yourself is to have faith in your body. Once you start believing that you do not need to rely on painkillers or any other form of drugs to overcome your injuries, your body will get into action.

On the other hand, if you don’t have faith in your body and have a negative attitude towards self-healing, nothing will ever happen. Called the “Nocebo effect,” it’s the condition where a treatment yields negative outcomes as a result of the patient having negative expectations from the said treatment. It is the exact opposite of the Placebo effect, in which the patient thinks positively and, therefore, starts feeling better. So, to put it simply, by expecting good, you will get good.

2. You need to ‘want’ to heal

During my professional career as a pain transformation coach, I have learned that most people don’t show progress just because they have given up hope. They have suffered for so long that they no longer want to get better. The good news is that it’s all a state of mind and it can be changed quite easily. Therefore, the very next step is to talk to yourself and decide that you really want to get better and heal yourself. If you skip this one crucial thing, you will end up sabotaging the rest of the steps!

3. Slow down

Sometimes, we get so lost in working towards our goal (in this case, self-healing) that we forget to slow down and pay attention to our progress. So I need you to take things slow, focus on the things that might be hurting your body in secret -any specific thing you might be eating, any activity that might be negatively affecting your health, and so on – and try to cut it out from your life.

4. Ask questions

Once you slow down and pay active attention to the little things you do every single day, at your own pace, you should start considering asking yourself some important questions. For example, if you are ordering food, ask yourself: “Who or what am I feeding exactly? Is it healthy? Will it make my condition better or worse?” The point is, that your body should have a say in what you feed it or do with it.

5. Listen to your body

Finally, listen to what your body actually has to say in response to the questions that you ask. If the body says that it’s exhausted, then leave everything and just relax or take a nap. If it says that it’s craving a green vegetable, then include it in dinner that night. If it says that it wants to exercise or do some yoga, then get changed into your active gear and start breaking sweat.

What your body wants

Your body wants to be fit and healthy and to feel great again. What’s standing in the way is you, your thoughts, and your deeply ingrained negative beliefs. And now you know all the steps that you need to take in order to get out of pain!

Pain is a cycle. If you don’t break it, it will ruin and run your life. Therefore, the choice is yours. Do you want to continue living under the shadow of pain? Or do you want complete freedom?

How it might impact your family

I strongly believe that we learn from those around us. And if you have children or grandchildren, they will see this suffering of yours as something that’s a normal part of life. We are creators and this behaviour could very well create generations of pain sufferers. Don’t wipe out your future generations. Start by teaching them that suffering is a part of life but the ability to overcome it is within everyone and it should be utilised instead of letting it be and suffering unnecessarily!

Ending note – Don’t do it alone!

If this resonates with you and you know that all of what I have explained about pain makes sense, then don’t wait – pledge to break the cycle today! And you don’t necessarily have to do it all by yourself. I invite you to join the Freedom from Pain Community, where you can find all the support, guidance, and help you need to break its cycle for absolutely free! I wish you all the best!
