Maybe you have seen the movie “The Secret” or have read about how words can affect you, your health, your attitude, a plant i.e. talking to plants, and words can affect others as well. Well, until recently this was all scientific theory. Today it is reality. Neuroscience proves that words do affect your brain.?Not only your brain, but your health. The placebo effect proves this as does psychoneuroimmunology or the effect your thoughts have on your health.
Let me tell you how words affected my health. And how I changed that literally overnight.
For many years I was suffering from hemorrhoids. Although it’s not painful like giving labor [this is what I’ve been told] it is a very uncomfortable thing to live with. In fact it was so bad sometimes, that I would choose not to eat for a day or two because going to the bathroom was not pleasant. In fact, I avoided it. So I did was is expected in this case.
I visited my doctor several times and got his advice and a couple prescriptions. That relieved some pain but didn’t solve it. Then I paid more attention to what I ate. I noticed that coffee and beer aggravated it so I didn’t drink those during such periods. That also helped speed recovery but didn’t solve it. I also paid attention to the early signs and was able to decrease the frequency of occurrences. However, all these remedies only alleviated the symptoms a bit but didn’t solve the problems.
I didn't want to get surgery because I believe God gave me my body, and all its parts, for a reason and cutting out a piece of it won’t actually solve the problem, it will just defer to a bigger problem. Then all of a sudden, like a bolt of lightening, I got an insight. "Change what I’m saying and it will solve itself."
My wife had also taken the Silva Method program. She was my mirror. Once when I complained about how much of a “pain in the ass” these hemorrhoids are, she said to me, “You know you use the phrase ‘pain in the ass’ a lot and you say it about a lot of things. Maybe you should stop using it?” Bamm! She’s right!
I did use that phrase – pain in the ass – a lot. I said it about things I had to do but didn’t want to do. I said it about people. I repeated it a lot. So, with this insight I changed the phrase I would repeat. I stopped saying out loud, “Pain in the ass” and I stopped thinking the same thing. When I caught myself saying it, I would stop myself, repeat "Cancel, cancel" mentally and then say “Ohh” and then I just move on. And since then, my hemorrhoids are gone. Completely disappeared.
So I have made my life easier. No more doctor visits. My body is healthier. I feel better. No more pain. I sleep better, I feel better and my overall health is better. I don't need to spend time going to doctor. More time with kids. More time with important things.
I have improved my life financially. I don't have the medication costs to pay nor do I have to pay for doctor visits. I don't have any sick days due to illness. And personally I have grown myself and learned that I am in control of my body and that I am capable of great things.
You too can change smaller and larger things all with the thought of your mind.
