What if you could heal yourself by resolving the emotional conflicts in your life or avoid sickness altogether? Isabelle Benarous says that she has been helping clients do just that for several years with her signature synthesis of human evolution and the processes of the mind. She founded the Bioreprogramming® Institute in 2007 and teaches others the science of Biological Decoding and Neurolinguistic Programming.
Isabelle’s book, Break the Code of Your Illness: The Link Between Emotional Stress and Health Disorders, provides a comprehensive and powerful overview about the origin of illness and how we heal. It explains how people contract a serious life-threatening disease, like cancer, as a biological response to an emotional shock. The body’s organs literally absorb the shock to resolve it; it’s part of our innate fight or flight response. She tells Dr. Nancy, there are two ways to overcome the illness: 1) change the external stressor or 2) change the perception of the situation and help the body heal itself.
What Causes Illness
Dr. Nancy points out it’s controversial to think of disease coming from within. Our current disease model relies on the belief that disease lies in wait out there and we catch it. We expect to need a pill or surgery for a cure. In other words, we have been brought up to believe that we need someone else to heal us. Dr. Nancy says that she knows breast cancer survivors who would argue with Isabelle’s viewpoint.
Isabelle agrees that while that may be true, her clients have found it empowering to take responsibility for their own healing and to understand how our language can create a self-fulfilling prophecy for our bodies. The true benefit of this Neurolinguistic Programming is that when another emotional shock occurs, we have the resources in our minds to handle it without getting physically ill. She describes it as a process of investigation into your life and that of your ancestors to learn how you (and even your parents) have responded to emotional crises and life events. You begin to see a pattern and develop skills to handle issues symbolically instead of physically.
Links between Scientific Studies and Healing Arts
There is a lot of empirical evidence behind Isabelle’s work, but Dr. Nancy asks, “Are you getting referrals from the medical community?” Isabelle says that she is. “More and more doctors are being open to this and it’s wonderful that they are trying to do everything they can for their patients.”
There is much more, including examples of direct correlations between emotional shocks and disease. Check out more of Isabelle’s ideas on her website, www.biobreakthrough.com.
