Just seeing sick people can trigger a person’s body to produce infection-fighting cells without them realizing it, a Canadian study has found.

“Pictures of diseased-looking people produced a stronger immune response than pictures of people with guns, even though the gun pictures were more stress-inducing” author Dr. Mark Schaller of the University of British Columbia told the Star.

Interesting concept indeed. The mind can trigger all sorts of physical reactions, but this is a new one on me.

However:


Another surprising discovery was that people who reported being particularly disgusted at the sight of sickness actually produced less IL-6 – a weaker physical defence – than people whose disgust was not as strong


Apparently disgust isn't appropriate. One must feel empathy, I suppose.

The mind is a truly powerful tool.....its awesome !!

I changed my mindset over 6 yrs ago due to the realisation that reality that we perceive is a complete illusion.....nothing is "real", we are'nt real, and therefore sickness cannot be real !!

Since adapting this mindset I have'nt been "sick" once, no colds, nothing !
Been in close proximity as well with many, many "sick" people but naw, not even a sniffle....

Try it, believe it, and your perception of the world around you will change forever !!
