Is it Possible to Think Yourself well? Yes it is

This is part of an article from By Dr. Lissa Rankin,
Dr. Rankin is a doctor and she ask a simple question and she found an astonishingly good solution from her own patients.
She had healthy patients who made healthy nutrition choices and exercised often. They should be healthy, right. On the flipside she had other patients who ate junk, forgot to take their supplements, rarely exercised and enjoyed seemingly perfect health. Their responses revealed that their lives were filled with love, fun, meaningful work, creative expression, spiritual connection and other traits that differentiated them from the sick health enthusiasts.

What's really making you sick?
Dr. Rankin narrowed it down to two questions. In her words: I would ask patients at their appointments: "What do you think might lie at the root of your illness?" and "What does your body need in order to heal?"
Occasionally, they answered with conventional health-related insights, saying, "I need an antidepressant" or "I need to lose 20 pounds." But more often than not, they said introspective things, like "I hate my job," "I need more 'me' time," "I must divorce my spouse," "I have to finish my novel," "I need to hire a nanny," "I need to make more friends," "I need to forgive myself," "I need to love myself" or "I need to stop being such a pessimist." Whoa.
While many patients weren't ready to do what their intuition told them their bodies needed, my bravest patients made radical changes. Some quit their jobs. Others left their marriages. Some moved to new cities or towns. Others pursued long-suppressed dreams.
The results these patients achieved were astonishing. Sometimes, a list of illnesses would disappear, often quickly. Even smaller steps, like talking to a boss about workplace problems or seeing a marriage counselor, helped. I was in awe.
But I shouldn't have been surprised: I had healed myself in much the same way. By the time I was in my 20s, I had been diagnosed with multiple health conditions, including high blood pressure and precancerous changes on my cervix. End of article

This is a perfect example we have been trying to convey at There are alternative solutions, non-drug solutions to one ailment. You are not sick, but your environment is making you sick psychologically. Your sickness is in your mind and that transfers to your body. This is also what Dianetics refers to in the book by L.Ron Hubbard. Your psychological illness manifests itself through your body. This illness can go away by changing your environment and or the people in your immediate environment. Changing your job, boyfriend or girlfriend. Changing your daily habits, seeing a marriage counselor. These are simple changes that can and have made big changes in peoples live. It is far too often that people seek a pharmaceutical drug as a solution. We have shown it is not has not and will not be a solution. It is part of the problem.
