there’s a biochemist on my college that says some things that he proved with his experiments and there’s a chemist on my college that proved it differently (she did it for research and biochemist did it for his own fun). there’s bruce lipton, a scientist, that proved that when a scientist is trying to figure something out, he’s trying to prove something to some of his “science enemies” and make them wrong and it affects the experiment that he’s doing and the results are different for same experiments done by different scientists. well, that’s interesting. a biochemis at my college is a person that is always trying to prove something to people and force them to believe what he believes and a chemist doesn’t care about believing her. (i talked with them and tested it with conversatinally-psychological things that i learned).
what i’ll do in the next month is, i will gather some objectively gathered data and combine it into my way of looking at things. there are people that proved soy isn’t good and there are people that proved it’s actually helping your body, and i know people that ate it and are completely healthy even when they are 70 years old. they didn’t mention in soy experiments what stress people were having during this process.
if you know what neuro-linguistic programming is, then you know that your mind affects your body. My opinion is that food affects your body 10% and mind affects your body 90%, but food affects your mind a lot. i did some experiments on myself because i’m allergic to nuts and we have this anti-allergy pattern in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming). i ate some nuts and got an allergic reaction, then i literally made myself not allergic to nuts and ate them and didn’t get allergic reaction. i concluded that the way you think about food and believe in it, affects your body. i know people that are eating unhealthy food and are very happy in their lifes and don’t have medical issues.
why i’m so concerned about cabohydrate intake and proteins and digestion and everything is because i want my body to get what it needs and understand the digestion and food.
i want to eat healthy food so my mind will work completely good and i’ll train myself to master my thinking and live a peaceful life etc. 🙂
I too believe that the mind plays a vital role in our well-being but what I struggle with are tow issues here. One is what is first the hen or the egg?
I feel good then I experience a unhealthy body. Then I want to get free from suffering and notice that it doesn’t work. I get depressed over it. I loose hope. Then I search and find new hope in a treatment. My mind feels better until the treatment doesn’t show results quickly. I start to doubt. Which off course affects the treatment too. Etc. You see here the starter was the body-which messed up a the mind. Then a ping-pong situation arises between mind affecting body and body affecting mind.
The other is a person who has a healthy body but is always depressed about his life or in struggle with life in general. After a while that persons body reacts and if that person then gets help for his mind his body reactions disappear often after a while too.
The problem in all of that is that a suffering being often doesn’t have the strength to think that its his fault. Lets say a person has a cancer and is suffering greatly. Us telling the person that all is sitting in his mind will not help him much but putting more strain on him because now he feels guilty wondering if he brought it up on himself and struggles not thinking negative. What I mean with it is that. Try not to think. You will notice it doesnt work. Sit down and say to yourself that I can think about anything but not white polar bears. You know what. All you start thinking about is white polar bears. If you then know that thinking about white polar bears makes you sick too and if you want to get healed you better learn not to think about white polar bears, the pressure on you multiplies greatly making your body even more sick.
Have you found a way out of that catch 22 situation?
