So – how do you explain the really great results some people have had with this treatment? It certainly rings true with me that if blood flow is compromised and then it is released, a person would experience benefit. And let’s not forget the “placebo effect.” That is not to say that there is no physiological benefit and this is all a figment of people’s imagination. Not at all. I’ve always said, “if you believe it is, it is.” There is documentation of actual physiological improvement upon a shift in attitude and upon a shift in your body. Anthony Robbins, self-help author and motivational speaker, talks a lot about this concept. He suggests at your most angry or desperate moments to stop and smile. Weird right? And HARD. But – nonetheless – it works. When I’m able to do it – and that doesn’t always happen – it has worked like a charm. There are physiological changes that occur – hormones are released when muscles that control a smile are fired upon – that release the “feel good hormones” like seratonin, endorphins, and dopamine. For more on that concept, I suggest you check out Tony Robbins book “Unleash the Power Within”. Click on the image below to learn more.
Have you had any experience with CCSVI? Are you considering it? How about the placebo effect – ever have an experience with that concept? In helping others, we help ourselves. Please share your thoughts and experiences in the comment section below. Thanks.
It helps the stress – just to say F-U-M-S
