Researchers have been investing much effort to study the healing power of the mind to the body. And, they do come up with the conclusion that such mind-healing is possible and happens often, when there is belief.

The placebo effect

A placebo is defined as an inert, innocuous substance which puts no effect on your body. The placebo effect has become a well-recognized phenomenon in modern-day medical treatments. With this effect, the patients believe they are taking an actual drug and subsequently feel better, although they don’t actually receive any “active” treatment. Belief is the factor that triggers our subconscious mind healing program; however, that trigger is not always obvious.

The body of evidence is big enough to show the benefits of placebos and sham surgery. They bring the same effects as potent drugs or actual surgery. The power of the mind or power of belief can really be a healing force. It accounts for one-third of all improvements and cures documented in many studies.

Science and Mind Healing

Specialists are carrying out a lot of research and development to have a fuller understanding of when and how mind healing works. And they come up with the conclusion that mind healing powers lie in the subconscious. The goal of the subconscious part of the mind is to create coherence and agreement between what the mind believes and reality. It allows your brain to accept your beliefs as truths and act according to those beliefs. Beliefs can either heal or make you sick.

The science of epigenetics can explain the way your mind heals your body. The primary factor that affects how a gene expresses itself is the the cell’s environment, except for the case a gene has a programmed defect.  Nutrients, hormones, brain chemicals, and toxins are the main factors that determine the quality of the cell’s environment. However, the most important elements are the perceptions and beliefs. The fact is that your thoughts and emotions put their impacts on the brain to make it release chemicals. Because the healing and the damage controlling property of our mind happens inside our body and it goes on unconsciously, we normally don’t take any notice to the progress.

Mindhealing methods

The mind healing techniques are to guide the subconscious to heal. There are both ancient and new techniques to follow. When being used properly and consistently, these methods can bring positive effects to your mental and physical health. Some common methods include visualization, hypnosis, tapping and so on. It is important not to let your subconscious be primed, coaxed, manipulated, or bullied. Mind-healing techniques can be used in combination with conventional medical treatment and natural remedies. There are a variety of options for you to choose such as therapy, herbs, medication, healing foods, emotional healing techniques, meditation, hypnosis or surgery.
