“You need to believe in things that aren’t true. How else can they become?”
Terry Pratchett, from Hogfather

Because most of our body’s operations are invisible to us, we presume the only effect we have on our body is through our intentional actions. We presume that we do not have control of what we don’t perceive and that our thoughts and mental images don’t affect our autonomic processes. This is the foundation of allopathic medicine. It is a reductive view of the body’s processes which claims our different systems regulate themselves independently…

Recovering from Covid confirms for me the role of focused intention in healing illness. Consider for yourself how you try to “feel better” when you’re ill. You try not to imagine yourself getting sicker but getting better.

How much more effective would you be if you had a deeper connection between your imagination and your disabled body?
