We tend to look to external things to help us care for our health.
We take vitamins.
And lift heavy weights.
We ingest medications…
But we don’t often consider what we can do internally.
What if I told you that YOU have more power than you think?
What if I told you that you can care for your well-being and improve your immune functioning by simply… thinking… thoughts?
Specifically, thoughts of Gratitude.
Let Me Explain…
Gratitude is a strong emotion that brings you into the present.
The opposite emotion is stress, which tends to leave you worrying about things that happened in the past or will happen in the future.
When you are stressed, your body is wasting energy on this stress. Your body is working so hard to combat stress that it leaves no energy left for our immune system. Immune functioning goes down.
Instead of stressing, spending more time each day in gratitude, will help the energy in your body restore. And your immune functioning is greatly improved. It’s receiving more energy.
Gratitude also aids in the production of Immunoglobulin-A (IGA) in our bodies.
What is IGA?
It is an antibody blood protein that helps to fight off sickness!
Gratitude for the win!
Dr. Joe Dispenza, neurologist (who also happened to heal his spine with the power of gratitude) has this to say about the power of Gratitude:
“10 minutes of gratitude a day, 3 times a day, strengthens the immune system by 50%. The body begins to produce a chemical called Immunoglobulin A (IGA) – your body’s primary defense against bacteria and virus. It’s your Body’s natural flu shot.”-Dr. Joe Dispenza
Did you hear that?!
Gratitude Strengthens Your Immune System By 50%!
You have preventative medicine right within you.
We must not ignore the power of our thoughts when it comes to our health.
Stress and other dangerous emotions weaken our immune system and can lead to sickness.
Gratitude has the power to reverse it…
And YOU hold that power.
So… what will you choose to do with it?
