Not sure if you missed my reply to your first post...
Asking if you're willing to discuss whether your beliefs are reflected in your own physical healthf so to lend credibility.
If so, was there a time when you were not healthy? Can you describe your experience of overcoming? Was it more spontaneous/instantaneous or gradual?
Emphasis on overcoming physical health ailments.

Just re-read after writing the big load below.. But every time it has been gradual to begin with and then accelerates to the point of some really cool
experiences of empowerment. It is like rolling something up a hill, hitting the top and then just nailing down full speed.. in a good way.
Well.. i definitely believe that my beliefs are responsible for my condition. Rather than what i eat or do. BUT i have strongly rooted beliefs in what
i eat and what i do (exercise) that i am not really able to overcome on demand. I have been very unhealthy at times in my life. Overweight by 50+
pounds.. weak, sick. Now at 40 i am moving into health again and right now am stronger and more fit than i have ever been. I have a bad shoulder that
i know are beliefs manifested physically. Currently my health related project
. I fully believe it will be completely overcome in time. The way i
approach my health is by catering to my beliefs. I look for a diet (and i don't necessarily mean weight loss, more what and how you eat) and exercise
that i believe will work and then i apply myself and results absolutely follow. There is always a building up of will. If you exercise your will by
directing and acting on your belief it becomes more effective. I know that reading this could sound like a bunch of bs that essentially demonstrates
physical application of diet and exercise produces results... But there is more too it. Will is something very real and the more you cultivate it the
more powerful you become in directing it. And the way you do that is by exhausting your beliefs so as to reveal their lack of substance. When you do
that you are empowered with what is true rather than the beliefs. Great athletic feats are achieved one step at a time. Each victory lending to the
possibility of the ultimate feat. The evolution of world records being broken is demonstration that anything is possible.
But yes, times in my life i have experienced big leaps in physical health, healing. I stay away from doctors unless there is something i honestly
cannot overcome a belief that tells me i need it. Like if my arm was torn off in an accident i don't have the will power to grow a new one or to stop
the bleeding by directing my blood supply.
But testing out those beliefs in modern diet and medicine have allowed me to become free of a lot of bad
western medicine. Again it's all voodoo.. If you hand over your will to someone or something it will eventually disappoint.
If i contracted cancer or some other disease i would definitely seek the root cause of the disease on a psycho-emotional level because it is my strong
belief that western medicine cannot cure diseases like cancer and so i would not benefit from treatment like others might. It is also my strong belief
that those diseases are caused by (lack of)honesty with oneself and understanding of oneself so investigating this would likely produce great
results.. Again because it is what i believe.
My current health related focus is on functional strength and flexibility. And in 3 months i have lost 20 pounds of fat, gained about 10 pounds of
muscle and increased major lifts by 50-100%. Even with a shoulder that keeps trying to convince me I've done some irreparable damage.
believe it yet. And prior to the 3 months i could not find ANY approach that i believed in.. and so was not cultivating my health. The latest thing i
believe in is /r/fitness on reddit . But will i believe it for ever? Probably not.. because the truth is my belief drives me not the things i believe
in. I have an underlying belief that anything is possible. Anything. Our bodies respond to a blueprint that on the most fundamental level we control.
The blueprint is written with our beliefs and each time we face a health challenge is an opportunity to overcome the belief that caused it.. Not
everyone is given the opportunity. Many children are born with incredible physical challenges that society would not and cannot believe could be
