It’s Wellness Wednesdays! We’ll talk about how to maximize your healing with 8 simples steps. Visiting the doctor is always a good idea when you’re sick or injured. But think about how many injuries, colds, and other ailments you’ve recovered from without intervention throughout your lifetime. The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself.

 

Who can say what limits exist on your body’s capacity to heal itself? Under ideal conditions, many scientists believe that the body would never get sick and could heal from anything if it did. Avoid selling yourself short. There have been documented cases of people recovering from conditions that were considered terminal.

Be proactive by taking these steps to boost your body’s ability to self-heal:

 

1. Believe in your body’s ability to heal. 

Numerous scientific studies have shown the body can heal itself in many circumstances. We’ve all had cuts, bruises, colds, and numerous other ailments that our bodies have managed to heal.

  • There’s evidence that many, more serious conditions can also be at least partially healed by our bodies.

2. Get plenty of rest. 

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to be in bed 18 hours a day, but always attempt to get enough sleep. It’s recommended that every adult get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep per night. Get even more sleep if you can.

 

3. Eat nutritiously. 

Studies have shown that people who enjoy long and healthy lives tend to eat relatively few calories. These people eat nutrition-dense foods.

  • Provide your body with the minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients it needs to function optimally.

4. Drink water. 

Practically every function your body performs requires water. Be certain you’re hydrating your body. A good rule of thumb is to drink enough water to have a minimum of three clear urinations per day. There is little value in drinking more.

  • Avoid getting carried away with your water intake. However, as a general rule, if you’re thirsty, drink.
  • Keep in mind that drinking too much water can be just as dangerous as not drinking enough.

5. Remove the stress from your life. 

Studies have shown that stress reduces the body’s self-healing mechanisms. As much as possible, reduce the stress in your life. There may be nothing that has a greater positive impact on your ability to heal than relaxation.

 

6. Have a mental picture of yourself in perfect health. 

Your body is already trying to heal itself. Include your mind in the process. The pictures we hold in our minds tend to become reality sooner or later.

  • Have a vision for your future that includes perfect health. Return to that mental picture regularly throughout the day.

7. Spend time with friends and family. 

People that are alone tend to have poorer health than those that spend time with loved ones on a regular basis. Get together with friends and family. If you’re lacking people in your life, the good news is that the world is practically overrun with them.

  • Get a hobby or join an activity that involves others. If you’re really sick, there’s probably even a support group for folks with your health challenge.

8. Remember to continue seeing your doctor. 

Giving your body the best chance to heal itself is just one part of the puzzle. Avoid turning your back on modern medicine.

  • Take full advantage of every opportunity to get better.
  • Your physician should be one of the tools you use to heal yourself.

If you’re facing a physical challenge, it’s important to use every tool that’s available to you. Refrain from ignoring your physician, but also keep in mind your body’s own ability to heal. If you take excellent care of your body and mind, your health is much more likely to serve you well. Think about implementing these steps even when you’re feeling great!

I really wanted to talk about this topic today because your natural health and wellness is important. You can adopt healthy lifestyle practices that improve your health and enrich your life, which can in turn improve the lives of those close to you. You have the power to break the cycle of poor health, including chronic disease, so that you can leave a legacy of health to your loved ones.

 

I use lifestyle medicine as the first line of treatment, before medications, to treat lifestyle-related chronic diseases. Lifestyle-related chronic diseases include diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and some cancers, just to name a few. Lifestyle practices, such as eating a whole-food plant-based diet and regular physical activity, can help you lose weight, and maybe reverse some chronic diseases (if you suffer from them). In certain cases, these approaches may even outperform pharmaceutical therapy. But I always tell my patients that conventional medications may be appropriate at this time to prevent catastrophic illness, but over time, you can work to make the necessary lifestyle changes to possibly reduce and/or eliminate medications. Please remember to always consult your physician for your particular needs and circumstances prior to making any decisions whatsoever.

 

Please talk with your doctor about any complementary health approaches, including supplements, you use. Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

 

Stay healthy,

 

Dr. Nicolle
