Your mind plays a HUGE role in dictating your overall health.
Not many people here and anywhere else mentions how strong the mind body connection is.
I was watching Dr Lisa Rankin’s Videoon TedX where she talks about the ‘Nocebo Effect’
Nocebo effect is when there is no ailment or disease in the body but a person thinks there is something wrong and therefore it affects the body.
According to Dr Rankin nocebo effect is infact the placebo effect’s evil twin!
There has been so many instances as narrated by Dr Rankin in her TEDX talk where she gives many examples of the nocebo affect—like medical hexing where the three girls being born on Friday the thirteen were medically hexed by a nurse (to know the whole story see the video), very sad!
Further, 3500+ case studies are documented in the medical literature in the Spontaneous Remission Project, compiled by the Institute of Noetic Sciences on nocebo affect.
So if you think just because you are working out and eating a good diet does not mean you are healthy.
A holistic approach is the key which not only requires a healthy lifestyle by a healthy mind too:)
