As a person who has dabbled with various illicit substances over time I have felt the effects of substance abuse, addiction, withdrawal etc. Not once
have I been down any of those dark holes however, and even through bouts of withdrawal I never used another substance to prop me up - which is a
falsity in itself anyway as you're trading one dependency for another.
In contrast to this I have VERY rarely used medication for illness and I have had very few vaccinations - I haven't been on a "foreign" holiday for
18+ years and so never needed innoculations. What is strange is the fact that I am hardly ever ill, cuts and bruises heal in days and I have never
broken a bone (excluding my nose, which is cartilidge anyway) despite many hard knocks.
I'm not aware of anything conscious I do to "heal" myself, my diet is adequate, I have around 70bpm heart rate, good blood pressure and the few
health checks I've had say I'm in great shape. I do drink a lot of water, exercise sporadically - sometimes I work a lot (programmer) and sometimes
I play drums a lot. Good genes? My family has a history of diabetes, arthritis etc so maybe not... Who knows what the mind does at this stage.
On a final note what I can say is that if I experience anything negative I am able to focus my mind on other things with a lot of ease and completely
detract from the negativity. I have also "imagined" areas of my body that experienced pain as though it were being healed - I felt NOTHING at the
time but maybe it contributed to my quick recovery?
