These days, even modern medicine agrees: 70% of all illnesses materialise because of negative thoughts or emotional stress. Illnesses attributed to this cause are called “psychosomatic,” and they are the biggest headache of the whole mainstream healthcare system. Sometimes several days of elevated stress is all that is needed to open up a gastric ulcer. Sometimes several years of it is all it takes to develop diabetes or heart disease, not to mention poor general health, lowered productivity, and lack of happiness. Doctors and scientists unanimously agree that our thoughts directly affect the activity of our organs and the state of our bodies in general. Ancient medicine is classified as holistic, because it takes care not only of the physical body, but also of the psyche, as well as one’s personal lifestyle. This method allows one to remove the cause of the illness, rather than merely treating the symptoms, therefore stopping it from reappearing. Modern medicine, on the other hand, deals with the consequences of the illness—bodily ailments. This is why the illness often comes back, since the cause of the illness is not actually being treated.
This is where one of the biggest secrets to health reveals itself—our thoughts can heal us. There are multiple recorded stories that discuss people who were severely ill and healed themselves with the power of thought, despite doctors losing all hope. One of such impressive story tells us about Morris Goodman, who, in 1981, was involved in a plane crash and was supposed to die due to irreversible spine damage and a punctured diaphragm. The man’s life was supported by a breathing ventilator, and the only movement he could do was blinking. However, this man was aware of the power of thought, and in just a few days successfully regenerated his own diaphragm and could breathe independently. He also consciously regenerated his damaged spinal cord and started to move all of his limbs. Doctors could not understand the situation at all because this just “could not be happening.” After a few months, however, Morris Goodman began to walk again, and eventually fully recovered. This is only one of many cases that are happening all around us. Thoughts cannot only make the body ill, but can also help it recover from incurable diseases.
Causes of hard to cure diseases from a different angle
The ancient ayurvedic health sciences not only prove the existence of psychosomatic illnesses, but also present a list of specific illnesses caused by specific character traits. What else could the thoughts be dependent on if not on the character?
Here are a few examples that could explain the causes of disease you or your loved ones may be suffering from:
Jealousy – causes oncological diseases, weakens the immune system.
Vengefulness – causes insomnia and throat diseases.
Inability to find a solution to a situation – causes lung diseases.
Lacking moral principals – causes chronic diseases, infections, and skin diseases.
Being too categorical or unwavering in beliefs – causes diabetes, migraines, and inflammations.
Lying – causes alcoholism, fungal infections, and weakens the immune system.
Aggressiveness – causes gastric ulcers, acid reflux, and warts.
Reticence – causes schizophrenia and kidney diseases.
Cruelty – causes epilepsy, asthma, and anemia.
Seeking conflicts – causes thyroid enlargement.
Apathy – causes diabetes.
Inconsistency or being fickle – causes infertility.
Being rude or insulting – causes diabetes and heart diseases.
Anxiety – causes digestive system disorders, heart, and skin diseases.
Greed – causes oncological diseases, obesity, and heart diseases.
How can we know this is truth? Many great things in this world can only be tested by experience and not by thinking about them. Ayurveda is an ancient science that still works today and is used by many great people.
An interesting fact is that it is enough to cure your character, and the relevant diseases go away permanently. This is especially important to know for those who suffer from diseases such as diabetes and cancer, for which modern medicine does not have a cure yet.
