Health, Longevity, and Belief

In his book The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things, Larry Dossey, MD wrote that you cannot escape the power and influence of your beliefs. Pay attention to them because they can make the difference between life and death, health and illness. No doubt you have heard of spontaneous remission. According to the Psychology Dictionary, spontaneous remission refer to the reduction or disappearance of symptoms without any apparent therapeutic intervention. Dr. Al Seibert talks about this in his book The Survivor Personality, as well. In fact, there is an entire chapter devoted to “Self-Managed Healing.” So does Bernie Siegal in his book Love, Medicine, and Miracles. The bottom line appears to be that what an individual believes often happens. I recall a wise mentor saying that people rarely receive what they “deserve,” in life; they often get what they “expect.’ What do you believe about health and longevity? What do you expect? It matters!
