In Zeiten von Covid 19 schreitet die Medizinalisierung des Alltags rapide voran.
Ja, Gesundheit primär als ‚Angelgenheit‘ von ‚Health-Care-Expertinnen‘ und Politikern und nicht ‚mein und Dein Geschäft‘.
Da tut es gut, sich diesen Google-Talk in Erinnerung zu rufen, MIND OVER MEDICINE, von Dr. Lissa Rankin:
„She is a physician whose research led her to discover that our bodies have natural self-repair mechanisms that can be activated or disabled based on thoughts, beliefs, and feelings that originate in the mind. She is on a mission to heal our broken health care system, help patients play a more active role in healing themselves, heal, train and certify physicians in a more enlightened way of practicing medicine, and encourage the health care industry to embrace and facilitate, rather than resist, the body’s self-healing capacities.
Dr. Lissa Rankin was a skeptical physician, trained in evidence-based academic medicine and raised by a closed-minded physician father.
But after witnessing patients who declined conventional medical treatment, only to experience spontaneous remissions from seemingly „“incurable““ illnesses, she couldn’t deny the possibility that patients might hold within them the power to heal themselves. Her curiosity led her to dig deep into the medical literature to scientifically prove that the mind can heal the body as well as make the body sick.
Her search uncovered not only proof that our bodyminds can heal themselves, but also the shocking physiological mechanisms of how emotions like fear, loneliness, pessimism, and depression can make bodies sick, while love, intimate connection, optimism, and faith can heal them.“
Muss aber durch diesen Vortrag ergänzt werden:
„Stress is ubiquitous these days — it plays a role in the workplace, in the home, and virtually everywhere that people interact. It can take a heavy toll on individuals unless it is recognized and managed effectively and insightfully. This is even more true for parents, family members and caregivers of individuals with neuro-behavioural disorders such as FASD, and if left unchecked, accumulated stress goes on to undermine immunity, disrupts the body’s physiological milieu and can prepare the ground for a multitude chronic diseases and conditions.
This presentation, adapted for this conference, is based on When The Body Says No, a best-selling book that has been translated into more than twelve languages on five continents.“
Und diese beiden ‚Expertenmeinungen‘ über ‚Expertisen‘ müssen unbedingt durch diesen Blickpunkt ergänzt werden:
„You can know yourself only when you are unaware, when you are not calculating, not protecting, not constantly watching to guide, to transform, to subdue, to control; when you see yourself unexpectedly, that is, when the mind has no preconceptions with regard to itself, when the mind is open, unprepared to meet the unknown. If your mind is prepared, surely you cannot know the unknown, for you are the unknown. If you say to yourself, ‚I am God,‘ or ‚I am nothing but a mass of social influences or a bundle of qualities‘; if you have any preconception of yourself, you cannot comprehend the unknown, that which is spontaneous.
So spontaneity can come only when the intellect is unguarded, when it is not protecting itself, when it is no longer afraid for itself; and this can happen only from within. That is, the spontaneous must be the new, the unknown, the incalculable, the creative, that which must be expressed, loved, in which the will as the process of intellect, controlling, directing, has no part. Observe your own emotional states and you will see that the moments of great joy, great ecstasy, are unpremeditated; they happen, mysteriously, darkly, unknowingly.“
