Can Your Mindset Impact Your Ability to Recover From Illness?
I have never seen someone’s health exceed their identity. Does that make sense?
This means that your mental programming, mindset, and beliefs directly influence your experience and, therefore, your ability to recover! For those facing cancer, this is a message worth hearing.
Replacing “faulty” mental programming and “distorted” beliefs with a healthier set of beliefs that supports the body’s campaign for recovery is essential. Because your mindset impacts your ability to recover from illness, it is your first line of defense. Building a stronger mental and emotional defense is what I help people do every day in my office. Whether you know it or not, beliefs can often become self-fulfilling prophecies.
Your Beliefs About Treatment
If you believe treatment is difficult or dangerous or see yourself as a victim identity, you will likely experience more fear, stress, and negativity. Unbeknown to you, your brain will initiate the biology associated with the state of emergency we know as the fight-or-flight state. It will be more challenging for your body to benefit from the medicine. As such, treatment becomes all those things you believed it to be.
The opposite of this is also true, and this is good news. If you believe treatment is supportive, healing, and helpful, or you see yourself as an empowered and active part of the solution, you will feel more in control and more resilient, and so will your biology. Even your quality of life will improve, and you will experience fewer complications.
Your state of mind is the greatest ally in your recovery journey. And this is the bottom line; unless your subconscious beliefs align with your conscious desire to heal, you are, in effect, working against yourself, rendering any treatment less effective.
It doesn’t have to be this way, though. Regardless of where you are along your treatment cycle, you can do plenty to change your experience.
