Why is learning about Bio-Communication so vital in this age?
Besides learning to understand and influence ourselves and others more precisely and more positively, science is now proving the importance of providing our bodies with vital raw materials to facilitate optimal Bio-Communication for health and well-being.
When it comes to optimum well-being, your body tells you what it needs. And you can learn to understand its communication. A significant part of the core theme that we teach at our NLP/HNLP Coach Practitioner Training and in our Hypnotherapy courses is your ability to “tune in” to your body’s Bio-Communication and learn to understand its messages. Nobody knows you better than your body does!
We teach our Coaches and Therapists to detect unconscious communication so as to help their clients overcome psychological and emotional challenges that exist beneath the level of conscious awareness.
Your body is a complex instrument that picks and transmits subtle frequencies of communication 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Bio-Communication never sleeps! In fact, if Bio-Communication did pause for only one second, there’s no telling exactly how much havoc that would reap. Each and every one of your cells must continuously communicate with surrounding cells in order for the systems of your body to function. One could argue that (on a cellular level) the root cause of any disease as well as slump in energy or concentration is a break-down in inter-cellular communication.
Your body is designed to facilitate inter-cellular communication. It keeps all the parts and systems working together. Much of this communication is in response to stressors, things like viruses, allergens or pollution. However, looking at the increasing levels of chronic disease and health problems in the world today, even amongst children, it’s evident that our body’s capacity to deal with stressors is being challenged.
Traditional healers, particularly those of traditional Chinese medicine, used good nutrition and supplements in pursuit of healing and optimum wellness.
This ancient system asked:
How do we defeat disease and aging by using nutrition, exercise, and meditation?
What are our true limits of human mortality?
How can we reach them?
How can we exceed them?
Modern science is giving us the tools to answer these questions, but needs to remember to work with traditional medical philosophies that recognise the innate self-healing tendency of the human cells. The body wants to be well; a body in tip-top condition uses less energy and is more efficient. Homeostasis – the drive toward equilibrium, balance, and harmony – is built into living systems.
Optimal inter-cellular communication results in normal functioning of the body and mind. As far as we’re concerned, every human being has a blue print of perfect health. Providing your body with the building blocks that facilitate optimal inter-cellular communication might be the best chance you have of preventing pre-mature aging and disease, while empowering your natural capacity to self heal.
The building blocks of Bio-Communication come in the form of both nutrition as well as mental skills:
In terms of nutrition, unfortunately the raw materials which our bodies require for Bio-Communication to facilitate its role in maintaining internal homeostasis are barely available in the commercial food that we eat, no matter how healthy we try to eat. We live in the age where, in general, nutritionally rich, natural, good quality food supplements should be part of our daily food intake. Likewise, care needs to be taken to ensure that clean fresh water supplies are available.
In terms of mental skills, fortunately highly effective techniques to calm the mind and body, manage stress and relieve tension are available to meet the challenges of the times we’re living in. High stress levels over time are known to upset the body’s homeostasis, resulting in depleated immunity and sickness. The simple yet powerful mental skills from the fields of NLP, Hypnotherapy and Coaching have become popular amongst those who have chosen to take responsibility for their health and wellness.
“Our health always seems much more valuable after we lose it.”
The ancient medical system built upon the Taoist view of health, taught that the primary activity should be to establish harmony so as to avoid disease. The ancient sages did not focus on those who were sick, but rather those who were well, in order to learn how to keep them that way. Perhaps we should consider the wisdom of the ancient sages while adapting to this era of modernisation. It’s time to recognise the importance of taking care of our health and wellness, rather than submitting to the need to take care of our illness.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and the cause and prevention of disease.”
