Can we use our minds to focus our bodies on healing Multiple Sclerosis as a
way of not only reducing the symptoms of ms, but as a way of reversing Multiple
Sclerosis effects on our bodies?
There are ancient healing arts that have
found that using the mind is a powerful way of focusing our body's natural
healing energy on repairing, restoring and replenishing areas of the body that
have deficiencies, imbalances or damage that is in need of repair. Those in the
eastern way of thinking about how our bodies work say that this is possible, but
in the western world's way of thinking there is a bit of skepticism in this
If this is not an effective way to help those of us given the
diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, then why are more and more doctors turning to
ms meditation, yoga ms, ms tai chi, ms qi gong and other forms of
what has been come to be called Mind-Body
are often used which have been used effectively for reducing Multiple Sclerosis
symptoms in many ways.
Some of the techniques that have been used
effectively for those of us with Multiple Sclerosis can include the
* ms guided
* meditation for Multiple
* tone therapy - this is where a piece of
music is played that uses tones that have been found to help to relax the mind.
This technique can work very well in helping o relax the mind and reduce
insomnia, racing mind and with resetting what the brain defines as
* music therapy - where relaxing music is used
to help free the mind of distractions and help it to relax to make it easier to
focus the mind on specific parts of the body, to allow healing energy to flow
throughout our bodies.
stress - reduced through ms breath therapy
* ms tai chi - includes focusing
the mind and relaxing while doing slower sets of movements, which help to relax
the body, and rebalance energy patterns throughout the body, without doing
exercises that are too strenuous for the body to handle.
This allows the
body to relax and replenish without adding to ms fatigue, that is often already
present in the majority of cases of Multiple Sclerosis.
* ms yoga -
includes much of these techniques
* qi gong for ms - this method of
exercise also helps to gently work the muscles to help them to stay more limber,

a few documented cases where a persons with one of several severe health
conditions actually used different techniques to focus the mind on visualizing
the different parts of the body repairing itself with amazing
Our bodies respond much better to us helping to create a healing
environment for our bodies to focus its energies on allowing our body to relax,
replenish and repair itself. To the western mind set, this is a foreign concept,
but in quite a few countries throughout the world, this idea is emerging as a
way to help us to work with our bodies to promote healing, rather than to fight
against our bodies and try to force our bodies into doing what we want them to
in ways that we think that "it has to be done".
If we learn to listen
more to our bodies, they give us clues as to what is going on internally, that
often we don't have any other way of evaluating or viewing these bodily processes
while they are occurring.
Who knows -- maybe there will arrive a period of
time where our whole view on human health and how to help our bodies to become
healthier instead of sicker may one day become something that is not such a
foreign concept, but rather a natural occurrence for those of us with more of the
current chronic conditions, like Multiple Sclerosis.
