Your innate ability to heal

By Sandy Priester.

Our bodies are miracles!  We heal from all kinds of things all the time like cuts, colds, broken bones (yes, the doctor sets the bones, but your body does the healing), and even cancer.

Even in a pandemic, there is healing. Consider the numbers: Out of a world population of 7.9 billion, the World Health Organization reports 176 million positive cases of covid (2% infection rate), with 3.8 million deaths from it (2% mortality rate of those infected).

Although it is the worst pandemic in our lifetime, 99.5% of us survived!!!

This is not to minimize the impact of those we lost, or the ravages of this virus. However, there is more good news than we have been led to believe. In addition to pro-active steps like handwashing, social distancing, medical care, and vaccines, a healthy immune system is still the best defense. Even for those who contracted the virus, most survived.

A quiet wellness revolution is spreading across the country that is not being reported in the main-stream media. That revolution is about becoming empowered to take health into our own hands and create our own wellness. We still need medical care. However good health is our birthright, and more and more people are recognizing the connection between the mind and the body. Notice the growing number of yoga studios, meditation groups, nutrition classes, and integrative therapies such as Reiki and Healing Touch in hospitals.  

Your body wants to heal.  It needs your help.

When it comes to illness, research shows that good nutrition, appropriate exercise, and lower stress bring out the best in your body. Taking good care of yourself does make a significant difference. Acknowledge what you are doing right!  You might be doing more good things than you realize.

For those with cancer, LifeSpark can be an important part of empowered self-care. Our Reiki and Healing Touch sessions support deep relaxation, bringing the body into “rest and digest”. We support your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

We combine our therapies with guided imagery to support positive thoughts and self-talk, which can also be a big part of your healing journey.  These audio files are available free of charge on our website and can be listened to at any time.

You have a greater ability to impact your healing than you may realize. Your thoughts, your daily habits, what you put into your body, and who you surround yourself with will have a profound effect. You also choose your medical team.

The power is in your hands!
