HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM
It seems that more and more people are worried about health these days, whether it be flu, colds or serious illness like cancer.
Underneath it all is fear, fear that something will happen to you or to a loved one. It may even be fear of how to control your health, the consequences of not being healthy, the fear of losing control, or needing someone to take care of you, or no one there to take care of you. Fear never helps us stay healthy. It is best to focus on the health you have and the health you want to have.
For me the bottom line is having a healthy immune system. When one's immune system is strong then anything that comes along is taken care of by the body's defense system.
There are many simple ways to improve one's immune system such as eating well, exercising, and sleeping well. In addition, you can tap to ease your tensions and fears, and communicate with your body about being healthy and having strong defenses.
For me, that is key. Create a healthy attitude and immune system and your ability to stay healthy increases.
The greatest force in the human body is the natural drive of the body to heal itself, but that force is not independent of the belief system… everything begins with belief. Norman Cousins
