Have you ever experienced thinking about someone and then having them contact you in some way or you run into them in the street?
What about walking into a room and feeling a good vibe or a bunch of tense negative energy?
Or ever had great chemistry with someone? A spouse, lover, friend...etc
All these scenarios are the synchronizing of your energy. We are just one big ball of energy and vibration that is emitted out into the world. We can attract positive things into our life, such as thinking about a friend and having them show up. On the flip side of this we can also inadvertently attract things we don’t want in our life. Our thoughts literally drive this attraction. What we focus on is what comes our way.
The ramifications that this has on our health is profound. While it might sound ‘woo-woo’ that we can think ourselves well, what you think about your illness or ailment definitely plays a role in how your body will go about healing itself. It’s actually be proven time and again through the placebo effect. A placebo is defined as a substance or treatment of no intended therapeutic value. However, there are countless reports of people who get better after taking the placebo in a controlled study. They have the sugar pill or fake knee surgery and report the same, if not better outcomes than people who received the actual intervention.
What does this mean for your health? It literally starts with your brain. While there is a place for interventions, maybe we should be more discerning about when they take place. By giving yourself the time and space to heal, stimulating your brain with empowering thoughts, and taking healthy action you are literally improving your bodies healing potential.
You might be thinking, “Dr. Liz, you’re putting yourself out of a job by telling people this information!”. That would be the case, if I believed you needed Chiropractic care to get you out of pain. BUT, Chiropractic is designed to support these healthy behaviors. The adjustment clears the signal being sent to your brain, thus allowing for a more perfect response. The best time for your adjustment is before something is broken, hurting or dysfunctional. Using your Chiropractor for pain management is like using your iPhone to only make phone calls. You’re scratching the surface of the capabilities available to you!
Our next Lunch with Liz is happening on February 20th at 12:15 and we will be talking about how to improve those thoughts in your head through Meditation and Affirmations. I would love to see you there, lunch is on me, but you have to RSVP!
Peace, Love and Wellness
