A health question... Not exactly Paleo. To all who are sick and trying to get better.

Since working on my recovery I am starting to realize that life is a very interesting thing. I discover something fascinating and new every single day. Just the other day I came across a video on self-healing and spontaneous recovery:

A short version:

A short version

A longer version:

A longer version

Both videos basically say the same thing: in order to get well, you need to be happy. How do I get happy if I am still sick? One day at a time?

Hopefully, those videos will be helpful to all of you who are sick and sufferring.

Any ideas are welcome.

Love,

VB

True, but sometimes you cannot do it. Like you want to make more money and take a stressful job and you pay the consequences in the end... with your health. I learned my lesson the hard way.

i would argue you should ALWAYS try to minimize stress and add happiness to your life, dont feel like thats just something sick people should do... and i dont know if anyone has said this should not apply to the sick? just seems like common sense unless shes specifically speaking on clinical procedure.(did not come off like that)

Actually, she says that the treatments, besides drugs, should involve life changes - reducing stress and adding happiness to your life.

had a hard time watching this, the lisp and undue emphasis on random things was killing me.

while i do think not being stressed(being happy) is good for you... i think that ignoring science in favor of hippy 'love yourself' feel good lessons is a horrible idea, and while she didnt exactly say that as she did make sure to say that treatment/health is important. i feel like her idea is the icing on the cake... and not the cake. you should eat well/live well and then work on improving happiness not the other way around.(unless the former is not possible/expedient) i think it would be nice if formal medicine started concerning themselves with patient general well being/happiness, but if they started saying "lets get you happy, then treat your cancer" it would be pretty offensive to common sense.

in my view getting healthy physically will make you happy mentally.... not the other way around.(for 99% of people, unless stress is impeding your physical treatment)

maybe her argument is that mainstream treatments are so ineffective that we need to be happy and hope for miracles? a more preferable course of action would be to improve mainstream treatments. maybe what shes saying will apply to patients with a horrible outlook with no surefire treatments??

not sure i fully understood, or maybe it just didnt make sense. ^^

TL:DR - duh? and she has it backwards(imo)
