How Healing Works

February 7, 2016

Welcome to the month of February! As you can imagine we get lots of questions about how the body heals and why sometimes it takes longer than we would like.

One of the most common questions we hear at our office is:

“I still have this pain –
I have a pain that I didn’t have before –
I’m having things happen that are uncomfortable – …

is that normal? Am I okay? Is this part of the healing process??”

The answer to these questions is: “YES, YES, YES!”

This is where the body’s version of healing & the mind’s version are quite different. The mind very distinctly says that any discomfort at all is wrong, bad and should be stopped. The body, on the other hand, says – it took a long time to disconnect to the point of having whatever “symptoms” (i.e., the body’s call for help) show up. So, it can take some rearranging & even reconstruction before things are on a more even keel. It is very similar to remodeling. Sometimes it takes some demolition and removal of outdated parts so we can update & upgrade the system. A mere removal of the symptoms never truly addresses the deeper parts which are the causes of ill health.

So healing may not work the way we think. The mind, no matter what it knows about the body, really has very little idea of what the body’s process is and how it heals. Your body’s wisdom is amazing and it knows how to heal! When you start trusting that wisdom, true healing happens!

Watch what it does and allow it to rebuild and remodel itself. Listen to your body and don’t make it wrong. As you observe it go through its process, you will begin to trust your body and that process more and more. And you will notice that things are changing for the better – in all different aspects of your life!
