Think Life and Live Longer

When I wake up in the early morning hours after a sound sleep, I feel so good because I’m still alive. Hey! What a relief! When you think about it, life is wonderful, and everyone should count their many blessings to see what God had done.

Whether you have a chronic illness or even a so-called terminal illness, your body will respond if your mind is fixed on healing and living. I believe people are dying prematurely because they think they are going to die. Much of this negative thinking originates from doctors, health care workers and even family members.

It is amazing that during four years of medical school, a medical student is never taught how to transfer the feeling of survival to a patient who may have a terminal illness. In fact, it was nutritionist and writer Adelle Davis who wrote, “Thousands upon thousands of persons have studied disease. Almost no one has studied health.”
