By Dorothy M. Neddermeyer, PhD

How are you feeling right now? If you know you are generally healthy, check for subtle symptoms. Are you feeling tense anywhere in your body-neck, shoulders, lower backache, abdomen, headache, and exhaustion? Are you struggling with a serious health diagnosis and are you experiencing symptoms from your health condition?

If you are experiencing the nuisance of minor physical symptoms, concerns with the stress of serious health or simple curiosity about how you can maximize your vitality and longevity, I am pleased to share with you what few Americans know, because it is suppressed by the AMA, APA, and FDA.

The truth: Your Body Knows How To Heal Itself

Your body has innate intelligence on how to kill cancer cells, fix broken proteins, slow aging, eliminate toxins, fight infections, get rid of foreign bodies, and, thus, keep you healthy. Things, can go awry and disease manifests when these self-repair mechanisms are lacking emotional, physical and spiritual support to function properly.

Here is the truth meter. Your nervous system has an innate physical protection system - the "fight-or-flight" stress response dominated by the sympathetic nervous system and the relaxation response run by the parasympathetic nervous system. It is only when your nervous system is in a relaxation mode that your body's self-repair mechanisms function properly!
