Self healing is a natural process that your body can use to heal itself. There are several ways to do this, including meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, and guided imagery.
Self-healing involves promoting mechanisms to return the whole person to their innate equilibrium, and can help relieve pain induced by various triggers. The self-healing concept is potentially optimized by multimodal integrative medicine strategies.
Get Enough Nutrients
The body needs lots of energy to heal itself, and calories are the fuel. You need to keep your calorie count up while you’re healing, so filling up on healthy foods is crucial. Krishnan recommends following a diet called the “healing foods” plan, which is low in unhealthy ingredients that can aggravate inflammation and tank energy levels and high in fruits, vegetables and healthy fats.
Meditation, self-hypnosis and visualization are effective mind tools for self-healing. Deeply relaxed states re-balance the system, and are especially useful for soothing the nerves.
Cover Your Wounds
While some people claim that a wound needs air to heal, the truth is that wounds tend to heal faster when covered. The reason for this is that a covering helps to keep the area moist, which encourages skin cell growth and speed up healing. In addition, a cover helps prevent the wound from getting knocked or rubbed, which can cause it to bleed again and/or to scab over before it’s ready to come off.
If you have a cut that’s bleeding, it’s important to stop the bleeding with a clean, sterile pad and pressure for several minutes until it stops. Then, cover the wound with a sterile dressing and seal it to prevent infection. Change the dressing and monitor it daily for signs of infection.
Talk to Your Doctor
It is important to talk openly and honestly with your doctor about self healing. This will help you stay on track and follow your treatment plan.
Ancient teachings and modern science increasingly concur: Your body, mind and emotions are a single integrated system. When you change one part, the whole system is affected.
Tell your doctor about all of your symptoms, including when they started and how often they occur. Be sure to mention any major stressors or life changes that could be causing your symptoms. Some people want all the details, while others are comfortable with a general overview. Talk with your doctor about how much information you would like to receive. They may have some ideas about self-healing techniques you can try.
