Our journey to health can be much more than riding a raft in an uncertain ocean of concern. If we turn to the wisdom of our spirit, we have a guide for empowerment.
Though we don’t often stop to recognize it, we hold a tightly bound bundle of beliefs about our bodies. These are potent rudders when we are challenged by illness, but we can steer ourselves to new possibilities when we consciously encourage a spirit adventure by seeking fresh information. Then we become intrepid pioneers, exploring a new world. Rather than holding onto old truths, we might discover bacteria aren’t our enemy. These 100 trillion invisible body residents are essential health allies and, in a new approach to health known as medical ecology, scientists are showing us how to work with them to help us heal.
