One of the best things you can do for your body is to simply go for a run. It doesn’t matter how fast run, far you go, sweat, or even how hard you work; simply going for a run can be the difference between a bad day and a good day for many people. Why is this, though? Chances are, if you talk to runners, inevitably they’ll start talking about this nebulous mind body connection in running. Read More

Ever heard of “Total Biology?” Well, you may have heard it in the form of other therapies. Allow me to explain…
When discussing about homeopathy in both writing and in speech to healthcare professionals and laymen , I always stress how the core of most, if not all, chronic ailments stem from one or more mental and emotional struggles.
And as mentioned numerous times on this site, this type of “dis-ease” results from an imbalance in our vital force, the energetic essence that animates us.
This idea is also brought about by other systems of medicine such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and other complementary therapies.
Yet some have scoffed at this theory.
Since most critics grew up with a western mind-set of medicine, in which the goal is to simply treat or at least suppress, physical symptoms in order to heal, it’s therefore not easy to digest the more holistic approaches of alternative medicine.
The What & How of Total Biology
Amazingly, there happens to be considerable research in this phenomenon.
Much of this research has been first conducted by Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, a renowned German physician who is the founder of “New Medicine.”
The trigger to the above-mentioned research began about 20-30 years ago, when he found out that his 17 year old son was shot.
Three months later, he son succumbed to his wounds and died.
Dr. Hamer was completely shocked by the entire incident and mourned greatly for his son.
Soon after his son’s death, he discovered that he had testicular cancer. He was completely healthy before his son’s death.
Recognizing the fact that he contracted this cancer right after his son’s death, he set out to investigate to see if this was caused by his shocked, intense grieving over his son. His in-depth research examined thousands of patients who contracted the same testicular cancer he did.
After investigating each case to see if other factors could be considered, he found that in practically all cases of testicular cancer, the patients experienced an intense, shocked grief over the loss of a close loved one. This was immediately followed by the testicular cancer!
The fruit of this and other similar studies conducted by himself and his close student, Claude Sabbah, have lead to the discovery of an intriguing field of science known as Total Biology.
Scientific Mind-Body Healing
In short, the principles of Total Biology teach that every chronic physical symptom, even cancer, is linked or caused by a mental or emotional root deficiency.
A person’s mindset can either positively or negatively impact the biological processes that interact in his body.
Whether it’s the functioning of cells, the heart, blood pressure, or one’s urinary tract, they are all connected to a very specific thought, mentality, or emotion, and depending on the type, it has a direct effect on us.
Positive thinking, mentality, and emotions can help lead to proper biological processes continuing in our body. The opposite can essentially lead to more negative effects.
When Dr. Hamer was emotionally shocked over his son’s passing, this led to a profound biological effect on his testes, which produced a tumor.
When he began to recuperate and reverse his mindset from negative to positive, his tumor began to disappear as manifested in his body’s response.
If one really thinks about this, we are in much control of our health to a certain extent.
Of course, there are acute accidents that we can’t always avoid.
But if one is able to retain positivity, such as true happiness, tranquility, and confidence, it can act as a safeguard to numerous physical illnesses!
