vs. Authority in
health care choices
I heard one of my teachers tell a story that convinces me that my medical doctors are a reference for me when I need input, however they are not the ultimate authority over my life. I know after going through 3 years of Menieres that I am the only one who is responsible for my health - one year with medical specialists telling me that what I had was something I would have for the rest of my life, and one year searching for any holistic means to override that . . . with success! You can read about the details of my search in the downloadable booklet at the bottom of this page.
In the videos of his Body Code Conference, Dr. Bradley Nelson tells of a woman who was diagnosed with a malady and died merely because of her doctor’s prognosis. Here is the transcription of that incident:
One time my wife was asked, “Is your husband a faith healer?” She didn’t know what to say! She just froze like a deer in the headlights. All healing really takes place with faith doesn’t it? I mean, think about it. When I was practicing for all those years, if I had a patient come in to me who had no faith that they could get well, would I be able to help them? No. . . .
Sometimes patients would be told by their doctor, “This is incurable. Nothing can ever be done. Any doctor that tells you that this is fixable is lying to you.” If the person believed that, no matter how good I was and no matter what I did to them . . . they would not get better, because the power of the mind is so strong. . . .
This is a true story.
There was a woman who was not feeling well and she went in and they ran some tests on her. When the tests came back they told her, “We are really sorry but you’ve got an inoperable disease and you are going to die. You have about 6 months to live.” The doctor said he was very sorry and that she needed to get her affairs in order. She did and almost to the day – six months later – she died.
A few months after that, they were doing a records review of the hospital and they found out that her records had been mixed up with another patient. There was really nothing wrong with her at all. But, she had been told [that she would die] and she believed it so it happened.
(Dr. Nelson’s Body Code Seminar, Wellness Unmasked, Inc., 2007-2011, Disk 3, mkr 3:26 – 5:12)
THINK BOUT IT! You are the person ultimately responsible for your health. Your doctors are merely there to try to help with information they gather and suggestions they give. You get to choose; do you choose health?
Eldon Taylor, Ph.D. (in his book, Wellness Just a State of Mind, 1992), states the following:
"In the spring of 1991 [he] conducted a survey among physicians who had consented to their patients using a special experimental subliminal program for cancer remission. The aim of the study was to look at life expectancy in comparison with the actual mortality rates of patients with cancer who used the subliminal program. The questionnaire went to physicians whose patients had received the subliminal program two to four years earlier. The twelve questions were rated on a scale of 1 to 5:
1. strongly disagree
5. strongly agree
The twelve questions consisted of four general categories:
1. the patient’s attitude toward their disease before they used the program,
2. the patient’s attitude toward their disease after they used the program,
3. the patient’s survival and quality of life, and
4. how the physician felt about the patient believing health could be
affected by the patient’s mind.
This survey revealed many interesting findings including significant remission rates, for 38% of the so-called terminal patients [were] in remission at the time of this writing. One other interesting and overwhelmingly obvious result was found that may surprise you. Of the four subcategories, which do you think would be the most consistent factor affecting the life expectancy or remission rate in the patient?
Most people believe that it is the patient’s attitude, frame of mind or belief, even though those same people would say that a terminal disease such as cancer cannot be affected just by changing the patient’s attitude. It wasn’t the patient’s attitude, however, but the physician’s attitude that was the most important factor in determining whether the patient lived or died.
If the physician did not believe that the patient’s involvement with the subliminal tape or the patient’s attitude could affect the cancer, the patient died, regardless of which treatment procedure was used—radiation, chemotherapy, and so on. The patient died regardless of the patient’s own attitude toward the disease or its ultimate outcome. The one factor present in virtually every case was the physician’s attitude.
Taking into account only those patients whose physicians agreed, to varying degrees, that the mind played a role in the patient’s health, then the survival/remission rate increases to 46%. If we look at those physicians who strongly agreed that the mind or attitude of the patient is important to health and/or health care, the survival/remission rate increases to 60%. Narrowing the field still further, where both the patient and the physician tended to believe strongly that the mind played a role in wellness, the rate of survival/remission increased to 100%.
Is it possible that we are being conditioned into ill health by the attitudes of those in authority around us? Is it possible that a physician’s sentence of “terminal without hope” is the actual cause of death? Do we rely so totally on the opinion of professionals that we prove them to be correct, even if that means suffering and death? Does the data from our study suggest that the answer to health care is a positive cooperation between the patient and the physician? What is this power of authority about? How do we learn to imitate or act so that pleasing an authority is a priority more important than life? Or do we? After all, maybe this was just a fluke finding. Maybe this is just an extension of the well-known placebo effect, only reversed. Still, a placebo works because of our expectation. Is our “inverted” belief the crux of wellness? If emotion, learning, behavior, and personality are all tied up in wellness, then how we learn how and what to believe is crucial.

Making Choices vs. Responding pssst, it's really just reacting
over and over and over and over and over and over again . . . re-acting to life and getting the same thing over and over and over and over and over and . .

and 95% would rather die than think." Educator, Dr. Ken McFarland
LifeRegeneration encourages you to CREATE vs. Respond! If you choose to learn about quantum physics you will discover that there are laws that were set in motion when the universe was created and everything functions according to these laws - Sorry, you can't opt out or choose not to submit to them. Therefore, if you choose to ignore them you will be submitting to them by default (and most likely finding you don't like the results), so you might as well learn how the laws work and then choose to use them to your advantage and to the advantage of the people you come into contact with to encourage and uplift them also. We get to make choices and LifeRegeneration can teach you tools you can use to enable yourself to be able to follow through on your choices and find that you can help your body to heal, encourage others to discover that they are ment to heal, begin to create great relationships, find success in your endeavors, and more. So instead of just responding to what life throws at you (i.e. getting your buttons pushed, settling for subsistence living, or all the other challenges in life) and working harder and harder with the same responses, CHOOSE to change those responses and live a life of intention. The Bible is a great instruction manual which will give all kinds of instructions FOR YOUR GOOD (not to bind you, hinder you, or keep you suppressed). Make an appointment with us and discover tools for how to step forward into a new beginning, renew your mind, guard your heart, and create amazing things! The science is available for you to learn HOW to put your mind, body, spirit, and heart to work for you.
The following article is taken from part of a video transcript (edited down for brevity) dealing with the psychology of nutrition from the website:
You’ve probably heard of the placebo effect. I’d love to share with you my favorite placebo study of all time. Check out the reference - it’s in the 1981 World Journal of Surgery. Scientists were testing a new chemotherapy - an injectable substance that was given to two groups of patients. One group of patients received the actual chemotherapy, and the other received a placebo – meaning a fake, harmless, inert chemical substance, which in this case was water.
Why do we even give a placebo? Because if you truly want to understand the efficacy of a new prescription drug, pharmaceutical companies must test these against placebos because in approximately 50% of all cases – on average – you can get as much benefit or more from a placebo than the actual drug itself. That’s a mind-bending statistic, by the way.
After a number of weeks the patients who received the real chemotherapy (just about 100% of them) had a very common side effect – they all lost their hair. Now, 31% of the patients on the placebo also had a very interesting side effect – they, too, lost their hair! Now all they were doing was getting an injection of water and somehow, their hair fell out.
Why would they lose their hair? Well, according to what we know about placebo science, those people likely had the association: "Have cancer, go on chemotherapy, lose hair." So what I’d like to suggest to you is that if the power of the mind is that strong that you could take a water injection, think it’s going to make you lose your hair, and you do lose it, what happens when you say, "I know I shouldn’t eat that food, it’s fattening," or, "I shouldn’t eat that, it’s bad for me," or, "I’m allergic to it."
I am not saying you could eat poison and think it’s not going to kill you and it won’t. I’m simply pointing out that there is a zone here where the mind is [very] powerful and can influence the body when it comes to what we think. Thoughts are amazing. Thoughts are like powerful commands to our physiology.
DOCTORS . . . from past
Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes said, "I firmly believe that if the whole materia medica as it is now used could be sunk in the ocean it would be better for mankind, and all the worse for the fish." This still holds true today, since doctors were successful in treating patients long before anything was known about germs and high technology. In fact, disease is increasing and fewer patients are getting well.
"The more ornate and technically equipped the hospital being built, the lower its percentage of cures." (Color Therapy, Reuben Amber, pg. 4).
Allopathic medicine, despite its research programs and all of the money poured into it, has made a very slight contribution to the cure and prevention of disease.
It would be beneficial for all to look at both the orthodox and unorthodox in health and healing, since the odd-ball scientist's heresy of today has the habit of becoming the conservatism of tomorrow. We would do well to broaden our premise to include holistic technology and return to treating the patient as a whole man and find the etiology of conditions versus merely treating symptoms.
Holistic medicine has its roots in several ancient healing traditions that stress healthy living and being in harmony with nature. Socrates promoted a holistic approach. Plato was another advocate of holism, advising doctors to respect the relationship between mind and body. Hippocrates emphasized the body’s ability to heal itself and cautioned doctors not to interfere with that process.
It was not until 1926, however, that Jan Christiaan Smuts coined the term “holism,” which gave rise to the more integrated concept of psychosomatic medicine now known as holistic medicine. In the 1970s, holistic became a more common term. Today, holistic medicine is known as an approach to life and health that brings together the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of a person in order to create a total sense of well-being
