Our body possesses self-healing capabilities. Self-healing signifies the autonomous process of the human body that safeguard the very life of the body.
By listening to our body’s needs, we’ll be able to resolve depression, panic attack, or even anxiety. These common psychosomatic manifestations are supported by the sympathetic section of the autonomic nervous system hyperactivity.
Stress and strong self-control also produce the same molecules that weaken our health systems such as cortisol and free radicals that weaken the immune, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal systems, when produced over a long period of time.
Among other things, they cause a reduction in white blood cells thereby increasing blood pressure and heart rate. This gives us the chance of increased risk into frequent viral or bacterial diseases and risk of stroke or myocardial infarction.
However, these dangers could be avoided by “reprogramming” our mental activity to be in harmony with our needs and our self, freely express our emotions, enjoy meditations, and cultivating interests and passions. Creativity engages us to our favorite sports and promotes health, self-esteem, good humor, and feelings of empathy.
Doctors and scientists around the world are investigating this phenomenon, wherein people with serious illnesses get cured without going through medical procedures.
Even the founder of medicine, Hippocrates, once said that the doctor cares, nature heals. How this is done, we’ll find out below.
The 7 key steps to activate self-healing processes was defined by William Braud, a well known American psychologist. This helps us activate the natural body-repairing forces.

7 Steps To Activate Your Self-Healing Powers
Find a quiet place. Then sit or lie down.
Turn off your gadgets like cellphones or tablets. Remove rings, belts, bracelets, and so on.
Close your eyes. Breathe deeply and slowly making your belly swell and deflate. Bring your body to a state of deep physical and mental relaxation, allowing your brain to the Alpha state.
Focus on your breath and allow your thoughts to flow. After 12 breaths expand your attention to your whole body as if you’re breathing with every cell of your body.
Visualize an increasingly intense and detailed mental image of your body in perfect health, enveloped by vital white light that sweeps away the illness from dark spots and particles.
Soak yourself with positive emotions.
Finish by placing both hands on the center of your chest, halfway between the sternum and the throat where the thyroid gland is located. Press lightly until it becomes softer.
Then start to give a series of taps like knocking, simultaneously breathing, inflating the chest and subsequent belly breathing. This exercise stimulates the endocrine gland to activate.
Even if you have no health issues, you still can make use of this technique to make your body exudes vibrancy and energy that improves physical and mental performance.
Heraclitus even nailed that the hidden harmony is stronger than the manifested ones. We must never forget that, in the case of healing, merit is merely to the nature and the internal healing power that everyone has within oneself.
