The concept of healing is one that can regularly be heard whenever seeing a doctor or healer of any description. It is important to appreciate the nature in which the human body works so as to recognise how healing can take place…
In the abstract, it is often thought of that a prescribed medicine, infused treatment or surgical procedure that removes the complaint of the patient is considered by most as having ‘healed’ the patient.
This has been fuelled by medical practitioners never quite explaining the mechanism of action of any of these treatments and as such, the patient never quite learns what true healing actually encompasses.
The most important and perhaps the most unpublicised fact is that no treatment, by a medical doctor, healer, nutritionist, holistic practitioner or surgeon, can directly heal the body. Healing, in any capacity whatsoever, can and only ever be generated by the human body itself with no exceptions.
To expand on this and in order to understand the concept at its core, we can take a look at some basic principles:
The definition of to heal is: ‘to restore to health’.
A surgeon cannot seal a patient’s organs, skin or fix broken bones, this task is left entirely in the hands of the immune system only. No intervention of any kind can actively ‘heal’.
A drug or medication of any sort cannot bring about health. It will act upon the problem at hand but leaves the reparative work to the immune system, without which the problem cannot be overcome fully.
