It’s incredible how intelligent the human body is. It’s always present and it immediately gives us signals if something is out of balance due to stress.
The first signals are easy to ignore and most of the time, that’s exactly what we do. So usually our body will send us different, clearer signs like tension, pain, and discomfort. We might experience problems with sleeping, with digestion or we experience hormonal imbalances.
But it doesn’t have to get that far and if we let it, the human body has the capacity to heal itself.
When we listen to our body and if we give it what it needs the body’s intelligence can heal itself and activates its own pharmacy.
Now, what does out body need?
Attention is at the top of the list, closely followed by right nutrition (and that can look differently for different bodies), movement and relaxation. And it also needs time and a little bit less stress. And so it becomes a mental issue because stress begins in our head.
Most of the time our minds are (unnecessarily) worrying and stressing out about things (that usually are out of our control anyway), about our to-do-list, unanswered emails and our friends haven’t seen us in ages… All of this impedes our body to heal itself.
Meditation can help. If we learn to control our thoughts instead of being controlled by them, we can begin to cooperate with our body and self-healing can take place.
