What Radical Remission can teach us about healing.
The medical community has an interesting way to describe the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Medical students are all taught about the placebo effect as if it were a nasty side effect that must be removed from clinical trials. In reality it is the astonishing power of belief that directly impacts the immune system and the bodies ability to heal itself. Fully one-third of all healing is attributed to the placebo effect so it is a powerful mode of healing to access and use in your life. Another form of the body’s natural healing is the spontaneous remission of dis-ease or radical remissions. They call it radical remission as if it is not available to everyone. I think it is time to realize we are meant to invite these types of healings into our lives and know they are natural, to expect our bodies to support us and thrive.
We recently watched the excellent documentary “Heal, the most powerful healer is within.” It will make you think about what you know of healing and remind you of your own power.
