How the Body Heals: Two Views

By

Which view of the body do you hold?

Mechanical View

The body is like a machine.

Things start to malfunction, and then you need to get in there and either replace the parts or alter the internal structure somehow (usually through medications) to alleviate bothersome symptoms. That’s what healing mostly is: alleviating symptoms. The goal is to function. Help must come from the outside, through the intervention of medical procedures and medications.

Oh, and there’s a blueprint and predetermines what will go wrong. It’s called your genes. Your DNA determines what will happen to you and there’s not much you can do about it. If you’ve got the gene for cancer, or Alzheimer’s, or heart disease–oh well, do the best you can to stave it off, but it’s inevitable you’ll get it.

Take the medication to relieve the symptoms, and put up with the side effects–they’re inevitable. Have the replacements done, and do your best to return to normal.

Eventually, the system wears out. That’s called aging. You can’t do much about it, except keep on replacing parts and alleviating symptoms until the whole system finally shuts down.

Organic View

The body is an alive, dynamic, intelligent organism that innately knows how to heal itself.

It’s not indestructible, but it is resilient. It constantly seeks life. It malfunctions because toxic elements are added to it, which it has to expend a lot of energy dealing with. This distracts it from expending energy to heal and grow.

If you reduce the toxins (which can be physical or emotional, what I call “heart issues”), and you give it certain raw materials to work with (light, water, air, movement, good nutrition), it knows what to do. It thrives.

It can even overcome any bad genetic programming. That’s because it’s not so much about the genetic code, as about whether that gene will be switched on or off. (Check out this fascinating PBS Nova program on DNA.) Given the right support, the body can overcome diseases and pathogens.

Which picture do you have of how the body heals?

As a client of mine said, “There’s a big difference between running from death and pursuing life.”

The reason I am so supportive of both The Healing Codes and now, the HALO Light System, is that both enable you to pursue life.

The Healing Codes support the body’s natural healing ability by removing the stress of unconscious negative images, wrong beliefs, and painful memories. When this stress is removed, the body has more resources to move into healing and growth mode.

The HALO Light System  gives the body essences from a huge array of life-giving botanicals, so that the body has sort of a library of things to choose from to heal itself of whatever is challenging it.

I know the above is somewhat simplistic. There is a place for surgery, medications, and the like. But I’ve used both approaches. I’ve made my choice–to pursue life–and I enjoy better health and more energy now than I did 20 years ago.

What about you?
