Episode 26 - The Power of the Mind in Health and Healing

There is no doubt that our thoughts impact our health.

Good thoughts are good for you… bad thoughts aren’t.

That’s easy enough to understand but it goes much deeper than that.

For example, when you are sick, it’s normal to become consumed with how bad you feel.

You think about your symptoms, you talk about them, you even Google them.

But is this productive?

Not really.


Because your physiology follows your thoughts.

Therefore, focusing your mind on your symptoms will reinforce an unhealthy state.

However, focusing your mind on healthy thoughts will steer your body towards health.

Yes, it’s challenging, but try to focus your mind on HEALTH, not disease… ESPECIALLY when you don’t feel well.

But that’s not all.

While positive thinking is important, “right” thinking is imperative.

Specifically with regard to health, there are three distinctions you really should be clear about.

Three distinctions that - along with the importance of “positive” thinking - we discuss on this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast.

These three distinctions involve understanding the difference between:

1) Health Care and Disease Care
2) Allopathic Medicine and Holistic Medicine
3) A Healer and A Teacher

By the time you’re done listening to this episode, you should be healthier than when you started.

All because your thoughts will be better 🙂
