Your Body as Healer…

An article titled “Miracle Survivors,” in Forbes (March 2, 2009), portrays stories of people who have spontaneous remissions from several different types of cancers. Explanations by the medical community range from “…a complete mystery,” “divine intervention,” or “the immune system.”  With regard to the latter explanation, our bodies have all the necessary elements to heal itself. 

Everyone knows who Deepak Chopra  is…here is his explanation and understanding of spontaneous remission taken from intentblog

“Essentially remission is based on our understanding of the science of self-repair. Our bodies have learned to heal themselves over millions of years of mhand_bodymindsoulemotionevolutionary time. Our bodies are the best pharmacies in nature. They make antibodies, sleeping pills, tranquilizers, immunomodulators, and anti-cancer drugs in the precise dose at the precise time and for the right taget organ; and all the instructions come in the packaging! The “packaging” is your own inner self – the ultimate and supreme genius which mirrors the wisdom of the universe.  Cognition or thinking, moods, feelings and emotions, behavior, social interactions, personal relationships, environment, diet, and the inner world of consciousness including attention and intentionality all influence the biology of healing.”

Now, back to the Forbes article…

It states that “spontaneous remissions are among the rarest and most mysterious events in medicine, with only several hundred cases that can be considered well documented.”  In 1993, two authors for the Institute of Noetic Sciences, created a database of  medically reported cases of spontaneous remission in the world from more than 3,500 references.  This data shows the ability of our bodies to heal itself is not such a rare event. 

Btw, the authors defined spontaneous remission as “the disappearance, complete or incomplete, of a disease or cancer without medical treatment or treatment that is considered inadequate to produce the resulting  disappearance of disease symptoms or tumor.”
