The fact that you are wired for love is reflected in all the bodily systems. When you don’t think and choose well, when you step out of your ThePerfectYou, it affects the whole body. 75 to 98% of all mental and physical illness is a result of the thought life. If you are functioning according to ThePerfectYou, you remain in good health and your body heals a lot faster. You are wired for health.
Nervous System- Healthy thoughts literally causes the brain to grow, making you more intelligent. Since the brain is connected via the rest of the nervous system to all the rest of the body, total health increases.
Endocrine System- Healthy thoughts positively affect the hormonal balance, which in turn positively affects all the rest of the bodily systems. Even fertility can be affected by the thought life.
Immune System- Thoughts affect the functioning of the defenders of the body- the white blood cells. Healthy thoughts lead to robust white blood cells which can fight off infections and even devour cancer cells.
Intestinal System- The gut has a brain of its own. A ‘gut feeling’ is real. Healthy thoughts enable proper food digestion and therefore lead to good general health.
Integumentary System-This system includes the skin, the largest organ in the body. Healthy thoughts lead to better skin- the first line of defence for the rest of the body.
Muscular System- When your thought life is healthy you are motivated to exercise. Exercised muscles in turn released substances that increase brain health. This is an example of an upward spiral.
Cardiovascular System- Healthy thoughts are involved in proper communication between the heart mini-brain and the skull brain, leading to the promotion of well-being by the heart’s orchestration of the whole body’s electromagnetic rhythm and harmony. Good thoughts also enhance the vascular system, thus preventing hypertension.
