The following is an article from Infinite Love and Gratitude (InfiniteLoveandGratitude.com) – Spotlight on Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D.
“Your cells, the citizens of your body, also talk to your mind (the government). They do this through their own special language of symptoms and emotions.
Just like the dashboard on your car, your body has “gages and indicators” in the form of emotions and symptoms. They tell you how you are doing. If you pay attention to your emotions, you can see how your body responds.
When you get angry for example, your body gets hot (symptoms). Your body is actually giving you a sensory signal that it’s time to “pull over and cool off.”
Your emotions and symptoms are literally feedback.
So if you take medication for symptoms, you are shutting off the signals. This is the equivalent to putting duct tape over the gages on your car. Just like trouble ensues when any government doesn’t listen to its citizens, your body gets into trouble by NOT listening to the signals from the citizens in your body (your cells).
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Well, it gets complicated because your mind is not 100% conscious. In other words, there are things happening in your mind that you don’t even know about.”
In a plastic tissue culture dish, the composition of the growth medium (environment) controls the fate of the cells. The human body, is by definition, a “skin-covered culture dish” containing ~50,000,000,000,0000 (fifty trillion) cells. The cells are maintained by a culture medium … popularly known as blood. The chemical composition of the blood is the equivalent of the culture medium used in the plastic culture dishes. Changing the composition of the blood’s chemistry is the same as changing a culture’s growth medium. The brain is the regulatory organ that regulates and maintains the chemical composition of the blood. The brain’s control of the blood’s chemistry is linked to our perceptions (mind) and emotions (reflecting chemical signals in the blood). When you have a perception of love, the brain releases oxytocin (love hormone that regulates body’s metabolism and supports growth), serotonin and growth hormone, ALL chemicals that when added to cells in a culture dish will enhance growth and health of the cells. In contrast when a person is in fear, their brain releases stress hormones (cortisol, norepinephrine and histamine) that shut down a cell’s growth processes and inhibits the immune system, which happens to be completely unsustainable for life.
Your thoughts adjust the brain’s control of the blood, which in turn controls that fate of the cells …MIND OVER BODY!
