Mindfulness in healing...

One cannot separate mind and body. They are totally linked. Mindful healing means you concentrate on the parts of your body that needs healing with your mind. Wherever mind is focused, healing energy automatically goes there. If my patient has stomach pain, I ask him to put his right palm on the stomach area and in his mind, visualise healing energy going to the stomach area. Stay there for few minutes. We are equipped with self organsing healing energy. This starts working wherever consciousness goes. This is an example of Mindful healing. It is all about being aware and then going along with the flow of events. Mind and body are like mirror image. So if mind changes, so also body. There are no mistakes here . Body cannot show wrong symptoms without mind also involved in it. I usually draw pictures of various body organs and explain the processes to my patients and then ask them to move for improvement in the condition.

White Sugar Addiction!

I am treating a young patient who is suffering from fears, stress, anxiety and negative thoughts. He is also worried about his health. His fear of disease is very big, making him restless and anxious. He is also addicted to sweet chocolates. Can you make the connection? White sugar is very harmful for health.  It works like 'morphine' in body. When you don't get your regular dose of white sugar, you get 'sugar blues'.  White Sugar pulls out important minerals from body causing further damage. It is also very acidic in effect causing acid alkaline imbalance. White sugar definitely disturbs mind and emotions, making one agitated, hyperactive and restless. However, sugar industry in very powerful. White sugar is in many packaged foods and also in our homes. No wonder, many of us are addicted to sugar!  How much white sugar do you consume every month?

A NOTE OF CAUTION: Just yesterday I heard this story. A friend's friend's father died who was in his fifties. He was on blood thinning alloapthic medicines. These medicines are prescribed for those who are at risk of heart attack/ stroke as prevention. He was wrongly influenced by someone to stop this medicine  with a  thought that 'all allopathic medicines are harmful and body will heal itself if you make diet and lifestyle changes'. So, he stopped the medicines and two months later he indeed died of heart attack. Now this is a very WRONG  understanding. First of all, PLEASE DO NOT STOP YOUR ALLOPATHIC MEDICINES ABRUPTLY. They are your support system. No matter what you do as diet and lifestyle changes, you should be under supervision of a medical doctor. Your medical doctor will gradually cut down your medication after checking you thoroughly including your blood tests. One of my patient was on such medication. His doctor observed his blood reports over the year, and gradually stopped his medication. That is the way to go. It takes time for body to heal and reverse a disease condition. DO NOT GIVE SUDDEN SHOCK TO YOUR SYSTEM BY STOPPING THE MEDICATION THAT YOU ARE ON SINCE LONG TIME.
