Medical practitioners agree that treatment procedures mostly produce positive health outcomes when patients are positive. They have also found that negative thinking upsets the body’s hormone balance, making it difficult for patients to heal.
Emoto, a researcher, conducted an experiment that proved that our thoughts affect the structure of water crystals. He found that negative thoughts created ugly crystals while positive thoughts created symmetric, beautiful crystals. His experiment proved that our thoughts affect our health, because if thoughts affect water, and up to 60% of the human adult body is water, then we can conclude that our thoughts have a powerful effect on our health.
Have you noticed that sometimes people who are unaware that they have a deadly disease live longer than those who are aware? Most people’s health condition worsen the moment they realize that they have a certain disease because they start entertaining negative thoughts about the disease. They start fearing for their lives believing the disease might kill them. This reaction sends their body into stress mode, ensuring faster disease progression.
Recently, some scientists discovered that a patient can be healed with a sugar pill if doctors convince him that the pill will cure his illness. The moment the patient believes the pill will cure his illness, his body starts healing even if the pill does not have healing properties. The sugar pill, therefore, proves that an individual’s thoughts can have a powerful effect on his/her health.
Besides this, it also dawned on me that stress-free people live longer than depressed people because they always entertain positive thoughts which boost their immune systems. I also noticed that depressed people often appear older or unhealthy because they entertain many negative thoughts that damage their immune system.
To conclude, if you want to live a long healthy life, avoid stressful thoughts and only entertain thoughts that promote a healthy life. And if you happen to contract any disease, curse it and believe that it has no power over you.
