More on the 9 factors of healing! This week we are talking about herbal supplements and emotions.
4. Herbs and Supplements
Herbs and supplements are great to help strengthen the body’s immune system. They are here to assist in the road to recovery by assisting you to digest your food, detoxify your body, and boost your immune system.
They are not a replacement for healthy food and are just Band-Aids for a nutrient-poor, toxin-rich environment.
Herbs and supplements can only do so much balancing and detoxifying if the body is constantly doing more damage than good.
5. Releasing suppressed emotions
Emotions we hold on to from our past are connected to our physical health. So when there is a blockage in our emotional or spiritual level, illness can arise.
Journaling, making a list of emotional moments, practicing daily forgiveness, and stress management can help release suppressed emotions.
6. Increasing Positive Emotions
Positive emotions such as happiness, love, and joy help relax the body. Only then healing and repairing broken cells, digesting food, and healing infections being.
Whereas when we are stressed, our fight and flight system kicks in and we stop healing. By increasing positive emotions, our body heals more frequently and our immune system is better.
