untitled

During 2016 Olympics, a large number of athletes show several red circle marks on their bodies, after checking it was found that they used an old traditional method called Cupping which claims that it releases toxins in their bodies. This and other traditional methods are now being used and it claims to be effective. However, some suggest that its just in our head and some of these methods are not beneficial but since our mind tells us our body follows. I do believe that our mind plays a vital role in the process of recovery.

It is said that mind is over our body, this is true when we face physical pain and challenges. Our mind plays an important role of telling us if we are recovering or not. For example, homeopathy suggests that it gives a few doses in order to recover, the common use for people with sleep problem such as insomnia. However, when James ” The Amazing” Randi took the whole 30 pills in a TED Talk Speech it was found out that it was just a sugar pill and nothing more. Hence, homeopathy is just a placebo to people who wants to have a good night sleep. Acupuncture is another medicinal procedure that claims to enhance one’s energy by sticking a couple of needles in one’s body, this was already been debunked by several organizations. However, this method is still well known in Hongkong and China as a legit method of healing since people claim that it relieve common muscle pain. This is an example of our mind telling or better yet wanting us to believe that this method is effective. As a summary, our mind plays a vital role in our recovery, whether it is a common procedure or alternative method. Our mind controls our body and it will dictate us if one’s body is recovering or not. Like the saying once said, mind over matter
