If you have been following the posts on this blog, you will have noticed that I often refer to Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., cellular biologist and author of The Biology of Belief because of his discoveries in the lab (as he recounts in the book and in his excellent article Wisdom of Your Cells: How Your Beliefs Control Your Biology, available on the website), regarding the fact that:
the state of our health is not genetically pre-determined
the state of our health is determined by our environment
the state of our health is determined, therefore, by our beliefs, as they form part of our environment, so if we believe that we will get cancer, or have a heart attack, or suffer from Alzheimer's because it runs in our family, then that is what will happen, but not because we are genetically pre-determined for these diseases, but because we believe we are.
This is monumental. Please sit back for a moment and think about it. Your beliefs determine your health.
At any rate, as I have been repeating Bruce Lipton's findings over and over again, I ran into a video the other day on Joe Mercola's website (Joe sends out an excellent health newsletter - sign up on the site - that I have been receiving for over six years) about Bruce Lipton explaining this phenomenon in clear terms.
The video is only 7 minutes long. Please watch it. Don't ignore this important information that could be vital for the future of your health. If my embedded link should not work, click here to go directly to the YouTube site where the video is housed.
