I have recently been reading scientific  report on the expected outcomes of standard  medial treatment for illnesses. The article highlights the effects that a positive approach to the illness from the patient, i.e.’ I will get better’ actually makes a difference to the persons recovery…!!

Well I never….most of us working the field of energy healing and EFT(Emotional Freedom Techniques) are already aware of this.

A short quote from the report says… In fact, some research suggests that how a person views his illness may play a bigger role in determining his health outcomes than the actual severity of his disease.

In general, our illness perceptions emerge out of our beliefs about illness and what illness means in the context of our lives. So, we might have beliefs about how an illness is caused, how long it will last, how it will impact us or our family members, and how we can control or cure it. The bottom line, says Petrie, is that “patients’ perceptions of their illness guide their decisions about health.” If, for example, we feel like a prescribed treatment isn’t making us feel better we might stop that treatment.

There is a lot to be said about positive thinking and just by acknowledging that your illness can be healed seems to work wonders;  this is now being scientifically investigated! Well it’s a good start, rather like other things that we know but have only recently been accepted by the medical professions and scientific community.

I could mention for instance,  particles that are only active when looked at and change with the scientists thoughts. So its our perceptions of how life is, that maybe we should look at. EFT helps focus on what it you truly want, so if you want wellness that tapping will reinforce that.

Shakespeare was right…..”There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
