Much time and energy is spent learning how to understand mind and body healing techniques. It is common belief that the patients thoughts, behaviors, and attitudes contribute to the ability of the body to heal. The therapeutic process can be positively enhanced by the individual who is more receptive to making lifestyle changes and is compliant with therapy. This individual is typically receptive to mind and body healing techniques. They have no aversion to looking at the wound and are willing to take part in the process of recovery.
Playing a role in our own healing
The patient who does not heal well is detached from the wound. These patients have the attitude and belief that the medicinal process is up to the medical provider. They do not take an active and interested therapeutic role. In addition, the patient might not be able to make changes because they believe they are powerless.
Mindful of healing
There are also those who have lost hope or who use their condition as an excuse for not going back to school or work. Another fear that the patient may have is loss of attention. They are afraid that if they heal they will lose the attention of their family, doctors, and friends.
Healing via Mind Body and Spirit
It is important to recognize that mind and spirit play an essential part in the ability to heal. Typically there is a common pattern of thought among patients who do not heal. It is a challenge for the medical provider to understand the feelings, beliefs, and attitudes the patients has related to the wound.
Healing: no longer just “make it go away”
The goal of medicine has traditionally been to cure by eliminating symptoms. When the emphasis is shifted however, to treat the individual as a whole instead of focusing on the condition, recovery improves. Practitioners have been debating healing versus curing for some time.
When a medical practitioner supports mind and body healing techniques, the recovery process is achieved by patients. The patients desire to recover, and their active participation in the process plays a significant role in their recovery.
