Understanding Healing of the Human Body

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.



Let’s examine some simple examples:

A patient undergoing surgery for a broken leg

In this circumstance it’s possible to think that the surgeon has performed the requisite procedure and heals the patient. However, on closer inspection of the situation we can see that the surgeon can only cut open, intervene, and sew up. From this point onwards it is the immune system that begins the healing process to restore to health.


Now, this is not to say that the surgical procedure is not required. Indeed, there is always a place for every type of approach to induce healing. In this particular example the patient’s body receives the necessary help from the surgeon to correct and assist the body by aligning the bones and so forth, but without the immune system’s own capacity to heal, the patient could never be restored to health and would in fact never be operated on in the first place, since bleeding out would occur along with many other variables that would come into effect.


The body’s own ability to know exactly what needs to be done and to perform it automatically is unparalleled. A surgeon cannot operate without the guarantee of the immune system doing the healing work that is required thereafter to clot the blood and seal the open wound and resume normal function.

Antibiotics given to a patient with an infection

Here we observe that the very premise of antibiotics is to destroy life. As a matter of course this happens to be the very definition of the word anti (against) biotic (life). What an antibiotic drug will do is to go in and kill the life that is causing the problems of the infection. Removing the invaders, however, does not equate to healing; all that has been done at this stage is an abundance of toxins and dead bacteria has been deposited in the body. The immune system is then tasked with the removal of all of these deposits safely and to bring about healing through the correct circulation of vital nutrients and oxygen to all the necessary places. This is what makes the patient feel better, not merely the destruction of the problem-causing bacteria.

So, having looked at these two examples in their simplistic form we can begin to view how all treatments, generally speaking, work. This is also the reason why there are never any absolutes in medicine of any kind. Never should any practitioner in any field be guaranteeing how the patient may heal. The practitioner can speak with a degree of certainty in some cases as to the efficacy of a particular treatment and its side effects, etc, but it is impossible to predict with certainty how a patient may react or heal.

Desiring to Heal

The desire to heal fully is in every person’s mind, and why shouldn’t it be? However, only once having understood just how the body sets itself up to heal can we bring about the correct ownership within ourselves to want to assist out bodies as best we can.


All too often we want to abdicate responsibility over our own health issues to our doctor. We have been conditioned to follow what the doctor says because we were taught that the ‘doctor knows best’ and indirectly we have also fallen prey to the belief that when problems surface that treating them in an isolated manner by taking a pill or having a surgical procedure performed to remove the symptom is the best and perhaps the only method to heal.


We now know that this is not the case and neither should it be. In order to want to heal wholly, we must take total ownership of our own bodies and lives; we must grasp that it is down to us to treat our bodies with what the immune system needs to induce the automatic healing we desire.


Healing will never be found in a pill. It cannot be. It goes against the laws of nature. It can only be brought about by a sensible advance toward respecting the body as a whole and nourishing it with the healing agents it requires to engender stimulation of the immune system.
