Your Brain Can Fix “Dis-ease”

11/   September, 2015

Many of us already know that stressful thought can harm our bodies and our health.

What we haven’t fully wrapped our heads around yet is that the opposite is also true: as well as causing dis-ease, our thoughts can literally change the proteins made by our cells to fix problems in our bodies.

NEWS THAT NEVER MADE BIG HEADLINES

Data analysis from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) Study, first reported in 2002, just keeps coming, even though the study results are not applicable to most women nowadays due to the women studied and the hormones that were used. The biggest finding that you never heard about was that the women only on estrogen (Premarin) had LESS BREAST CANCER!
