We all know by now that because of our current lifestyle, stress has become one of the biggest issues of all time. Did you know that when in stress your body shuts down all systems that are not needed in a stressful situation. Just imagine a little what that means. Because of stress many of your bodily functions are simply hovering on the brink of survival, some not functioning properly at all, while your body prepares for fight or flight. Being in this state constantly brings about almost 95% of the diseases that exist today. That is a very big statement but look at what Dr Bruce Lipton says in this video: “If You Change Your Mind You Can Change Your Biology.”
So it is the signal from the mind that is of utmost importance?
He says that there are only 3 ways to mess up the “signal”.
- Thought – the mind.
I’m fascinated with number 3. The name of the switch that controls your biology = perception. This is something I really became aware of when I read the book that I offer for free when you subscribe to my blog here. Again reinforcing the concept that “If You Change Your Mind You Can Change Your Biology”.
Imagine. 95% of people in the world could be perfectly healthy simply by controlling their thought processes – the “signal”!
Contrary to popular belief, learning that genes are not fixed as on or off and are not the ones that establish the state of your being is a major breakthrough. How many people have you heard say: “Oh it’s in the family so it was INEVITABLE”. Think about it. The genes are either red or not red and switched on or off through your mind or perception. You control your genes through your thoughts and beliefs. Wow.
Further to this, 95% of cancer is because of Epigenetic Control (I’ll delve further into Epigenetic Control in further blog posts) – which can be passed from one generation to another. How? Well through habit forming activities and beliefs that develop as a result of environmental factors, rituals, religions, lifestyles, learned habits, shared beliefs, traditions, etc. internalised as truth.
Responsibility of your health is yours
I like Dr Lipton’s analogy of your body being a “community”. And the fact that your brain or rather your mind is the “central voice” that controls your “community”. I now understand that the signals from the environment give the brain the opportunity for interpretation; either positive or negative. Then the belief that is concluded out of this perception as a result of the interpretation affects your “community”.
“If you change your perception you can change the reading of your genes.” Dr Bruce Lipton
Belief belief belief. What do you really believe? To me this is huge. I have spent a lot of time on delving into my belief system. I mean think about it … if you believe the doctor, the belief can cause you to have the disease? Really? This can be a little “unbelievable” or even terrifying for many but I guess that is a choice. I have decided to accept this new understanding that the function of the mind is to send the signal to the “community” which the “community” then follows.
You can live your best life ever because “If You Change Your Mind You Can Change Your Biology.”
Knowing this and believing this, I now specifically focus every day on my thought processes. In other words I practice mindfulness. I adjust my perceptions constantly to more positive interpretations rather than negative. And of course this forms my “perception” or “belief”. Now the genes that are required to support my beliefs are switched on! My reality is then shaped according to these beliefs because obviously my behaviour will change. And this is how I can control my reality and live the best life ever.
How is your “community” responding? Can you see and feel the communities response? Is your community happy or sad? Healthy or sick?
“If the doctor tells you – you have a disease or you’re going to die – and you believe the doctor, the belief can cause you to become sick or die.”
So why do we get sick? Stress. Period.
Of course some will reject this entire concept of “If You Change Your Mind You Can Change Your Biology” outright. For me it is progress.
This is why I take Aruca™ . This combination of herbs are contributing to point number 2 and 3 above. Aruca™ has helped my body remove toxins by supplying super antioxidants. But as Dr Lipton says you have to treat the disease but also the stress. Aruca™ is an adaptogenic supplement. Adaptogenic herbs are a group of botanical rejuvenating herbs that greatly improve your body’s ability to adapt to stress and improve strength, energy, stamina, endurance, and mental clarity. I believe that this must have a profound effect on the chemical balances in the body. I feel it.
