First, let me preface this by saying that I understand how crazy it might sound. Please hear me out.
So much of what we feel emotionally is biological and unrelated to the outside world, our past, or our psychological conditioning.
So much of what we feel physically, such as pain and energy levels, are rooted in our thoughts and psychological conditioning.
If you’ve failed to alleviate physical or mental ailments despite going to doctor after doctor, you might be pulling the wrong lever.
On the surface, it’s not so far-fetched. Think about it…
➡️ If mental illness was purely psychological, why would it be treated with pills?
➡️ Why do we get “hangry” if we don’t eat, or feel more cheery after a cup of coffee?
➡️ Why do we feel physically depleted when we’re depressed?
➡️ Why are we wide awake on 2 hours of sleep when we’re really excited? Or terrified?
➡️ Why do we get headaches or tension pains from stress?
We all know that our minds and bodies are connected.
But sometimes they are connected in counterintuitive ways.
Or, factors that seem like they might be a mild influence can turn out to be the main cause.
As crazy as it sounds, the following factors, alone or combined, can be enough to cause or cure mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and brain fog – 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐬𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐬. I’ve witnessed it multiple times, including with my own clients and even in my own life.
✅ Food sensitivities, even if no physical symptoms are present
✅ Unfavorable gut microbiome
✅ Caffeine consumption
✅ Alcohol or cannabis use, even in amounts that aren’t typically considered problematic
✅ Inadequate or poor-quality sleep
Stress management and/or mindfulness practices can alleviate or even eliminate:
✅ Any physical pain
✅ Low energy levels
None of this is wishful thinking or “holistic” myths.
Biological conditions affect brain function and hormones, which affect our mental health. Some gut microorganisms are even capable of secreting their own hormones!
Muscles and nerves control everything in our bodies. Some practices allow us to gain control over muscles and nerves that we normally can’t control consciously. This can allow us to relax tension pains away, remove tension that impedes gut function, or release constricted bronchial tubes.
Pain management is especially fascinating to me. Pain isn’t a sensation on its own. Sensations have to be interpreted as pain, sort of like smoke setting off an alarm. We can train our brains to interpret these sensations as just sensations, without setting off the pain alarm. I’m not saying you’ll be like a monk who can sit peacefully in flames, but the average person can learn to reduce or “turn off” some pains with a bit of practice.
So, if you’ve tried doctor after doctor or therapist after therapist with disappointing results, try pulling a different lever.
