Let the Body Heal Itself
Hippocrates, the father of medicine, once said: “To do nothing is also a good remedy.”
Your body is very forgiving. Even after years of abuse, it is still capable of recovering from any disease, if you would give it the opportunity. Your body has the capability for self-healing. A mechanism for natural healing is built into your body, which functions throughout your entire lifespan. However, you also need the mind power to activate it.
To induce self-healing, you need self-knowledge to discern the basic needs of your body as well as the warning signs of disease long before it strikes. Sadly, many of us have neither the wisdom above nor the patience to wait for self-healing to run its course, and we rush ourselves to seek medical help or to resort to dangerous medications; by doing so, we not only stop the self-healing process but also make ourselves vulnerable to disease in the future.
Hippocrates also said: “Healing is a matter of time, but it is also a matter of opportunity.” Give your body that opportunity for natural self-healing. Health is often not valued until disease strikes.
The Essence of Body Healing
The essence of natural healing lies in the concept of life energy.
What is life energy?
Physics is about matter and energy. The latter is composed of waves, which are intangible. You cannot see life energy, but you can feel it. If you place your palms together without letting them touch each other, you can actually feel the heat generated by the cellular vibrations of your skin, muscle, and blood vessels. In other words, life energy emits from your cells. In fact, energy exists in just about anything.
All disease is about energy, specifically life energy at the cellular level.
Your body cells, billions of them, are constantly expanding, contracting, and vibrating to create life energy to carry out their respective functions in your body. Of course, they need nutrients and oxygen in order to give out the requisite life energy. And this is one good reason why you need to nourish your cells with vitamins and minerals, and the nutrients needed for their optimum functioning.
When cells are nourished, they expand. They breathe in the energy around them and transform this energy into internal matter. When cells contract, they breathe out the energy, transforming the internal matter into energy around them. This unique life energy is responsible for natural self-healing. And this is the essence of body healing.
When there is excessive life energy (overactive cells), blockage occurs, paving the way for poor health and the onslaught of disease at the cellular level, such as cancer. The natural healing capability of your body is then compromised or undermined, giving way to disease.
By the same token, if there is deficient life energy (inert cells), there is inadequate energy for conversion of internal matter into nutrients to be transported to different organs of the body. Either excess or deficiency will result in disharmony or imbalance in the overall energy system, which prevents natural self-healing.
Once you understand the underlying principle of cellular energy, you will know how your body can heal itself. Instead of engaging in combat with the enemy, which is disease at the cellular level, you can sidestep the battle completely by working at the cellular level to balance the matter inside the cells and the energy outside the cells to bring about ultimate natural healing.
Teach yourself self-responsibility -- your greatest weapon in improving health and promoting self-healing.

Unsafe Pharmaceutical Drugs
Unsafe pharmaceutical drugs are prevalent, as evidenced by the many recalls and lawsuits. This is an indisputable and unfortunate fact!
Unreliable drug tests abound in the medical and pharmaceutical research community. Drug tests prior to their approval may not be reliable due to the following reasons:
Pharmaceutical companies may often influence medical researchers, through coercion, incentive, and even threat, to produce the desired results in clinical trials. There have been many cases of data fabrication in clinical trials of drugs in order to facilitate their intended applications or the FDA approval.
Clinical trials usually involve a small number of people, and may not truly reflect the outcome of those who will ultimately be using those drugs after their approval.
Drugs tested on animal models may be biased and even irrelevant. An artificially induced disease in non-human animals may not yield results relevant to a spontaneous, naturally occurring human disease.
A case in point: On May 21, 2007, based on a research conducted by Dr. Steven Nissen at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, the FDA expressed concern regarding the safety of Avandia, a pill widely prescribed by doctors to treat type 2 diabetes. The ground-breaking research findings suggested that the risk of a heart attack was increased 43 percent among those taking the drug, and that there was a 64 percent increased risk of dying from cardiovascular causes, compared with patients not taking the drug.
Therefore, follow Hippocrates' advice: "Make habit of two things: to help, or at least do no harm."
Do no harm to your body by refraining from taking medications, especially those over-the-counter, to treat symptoms of everyday ailments, such as a headache or a stomach upset. Get back your drug-free life!
Remember, all pharmaceutical drugs are acidic and toxic chemicals. Also, when you give your body a drug that replaces a substance your body is capable of making itself, you body then becomes weaker, not stronger, and begins not only to manufacture less of that substance, but also to become more dependent on the outside source, which is usually the drug. Over time, your immune system becomes weaker and you are no longer drug free.

Detoxification for Body Cleanse
One of the major causes of disease is chronic stress to the body system, such as chemical stress, radiation stress, nutritional stress, and emotional stress. Accumulation of stress prevents body healing.
Chemicals in the environment come from the air you breathe, the food you eat (especially processed food), the water you drink, or anything you may come in contact with, such as your daily shampoo and toothpaste. Chemical stress produces toxins in the form of free radicals damaging cells and enzymes, and thus compromising the whole immune system.
Minerals, which make up 4 percent of your total body weight, is essential for immunity health and self-healing. However, minerals can be displaced by excess lethal metals, such as aluminum, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Free radicals are responsible for brain damage, DNA damage, and heart damage.

Hippocrates said: "It's far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has."
That is to say, certain types of people, due to their diet and lifestyle, are more prone to developing certain types of disease than others. Therefore, their disease cure should be based on changing what has brought on their disease in the first place. In other words, once the causes of a disease are identified and addressed, the disease cure begins.

Health Recovery for Body Healing
The healing cycle is incomplete until there is complete health recovery from the disease or illness.
To sustain self-healing, an optimum health environment is essential for ultimate health recovery and rejuvenation.
Manage Your Numbers
Blood pressure below 120 (systolic) over 80 (diastolic) is normal. Maintain your blood pressure at the optimum levels, that is, 130/85 (given that as you age, your blood pressure tends to rise)
Normalize your blood pressure naturally through Natural Solutions for High Blood Pressure.
Good cholesterol levels should be less than 40 mg/dl for HDL (good cholesterol) for a man, and 50 mg/dl for a woman; and more than 150 mg/dl for triglyceride (bad cholesterol). Optimize these numbers for health recovery and natural healing.
Do not take any drugs to control your cholesterol levels. Instead, lower cholesterol naturally.
Fast blood sugar levels should be maintained at no more than 100 mg/dl to prevent the development of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease.
Acid Alkaline Ratio
The acid-alkaline ratio should be balanced to provide an optimum environment for replication and rejuvenation of body cells.
The pH (acid and alkaline scale between one and fourteen) level should be neutral, which is seven. Anything above is seven is considered alkaline, while anything below seven is considered acidic. When your body is too acidic, the tissues of your cells are forced to relinquish their alkaline reserves, and thus depleting them of alkaline minerals, which are critical to tissue growth. Shortage of alkaline minerals reduces enzyme activity, and hence promoting disease.
The Alkaline Diet can maintain your pH levels for body-healing.
Maintain your body weight for long-term health and wellness to promote self-healing.

Manage Pain to Heal
Physical pain, due to injury, disease, or old age, is inevitable. Do not let pain immobilize you. Without proper pain management, self-healing cannot take place.
The Science of Eating
You eat to live, not live to eat. Therefore, to optimize self-healing, eat living foods, not their counterparts.
Find out how to eat to live, go to Stephen Lau's web page: Healthy Eating for Self-Healing.
De-stress to Heal
Stress impairs the immune system, and thus prevents self-healing. For more information on how to de-stress yourself, visit Stephen Lau's web page: De-Stress to Heal.
Vision Health and Healthy Mouth
Both vision health and a healthy mouth play a pivotal part in natural body healing. It is through your eyes that you see yourself and the world around you. It is through your mouth that you give yourself the nutrients necessary to maintain health for self-healing. In Oriental medicine, disease diagnosis is done mainly through the eyes and the mouth, because they mirror the internal health of the patient.
