In the world we live in, "self healing" is considered to be new age or a scam that people are using to teach classes or sell books. However, if you look back a few centuries you will realize that self healing has been around forever it is simply the term that has been changed. In times of old people did not have prescription drugs or special treatments to deal with ailments or mental illnesses. People in those days believed in the bodies ability for self healing and they used there spirituality as a basis to believe that they would survive or heal.
These practices of spirituality and self healing are still available today. The human body was designed in such a way that it is naturally self healing. Medications never truly heal someone, they only aid in the process of the body self healing.
In reality the body just needs assistance at times to have time for self healing. Consider if a bone is broken, the cast does not heal the bone it simply provide a structure so that the body has a chance for self healing. Many people believe that when self healing practices and spirituality are used together you will experience a must faster and easier healing process.
How Spirituality Provide Support to those with Terminal Illnesses
Many people who have been diagnosed with terminal illnesses or life long diseases find that doctors commonly look to prescription drugs as the only option. However studies have shown that with the proper diet and mental state of mind many people experience excellent results. Many people rely on their spirituality to keep a positive mental state. They use prayer and biblical reading to build their spirituality and develop hope and positive thoughts. Spirituality simply means to believe in and practice the belief of a greater power.
Many people believe that the higher being that they rest their spirituality on will provide help in healing. Many things are involved in developing or building spirituality. These things are often the practice of going to church or giving praise to a higher being. In these cases the practice of spirituality can often provide positive mental balance that many people believe is required for healing to occur.
Unfortunately modern medicine rarely delves into the aspect of spirituality when considering the proper treatment. Many doctors do not even believe that through spirituality healing can occur. This is the separation of medicine and spirituality. However, many doctors do agree that when every treatment has failed and there seems to be no hope faith or a higher being may be the only hope for some patients.
The sad fact is that studies have shown that patients who draw on all aspects of self healing including diet, medicine, faith or spirituality, and proper mental state often have much higher recovery rates. If all of these things were to be used in modern medicine many people who endure much lees suffering and pain.
