How To Use Your God Power To Get Everything You Ever Wanted and Live The Life Of Your Dreams by Richard Lee McKim Jr. is an important self-help book although readers should not interpret the contents of this book as a cure all.
The mind/body connection is firmly established by the author through artful experiments and a thorough analysis of the biochemistry of cells. At bottom, cells respond to our thoughts and when great stress is present, the immune system suffers. Biologically, the cells have a digestive system, a nervous system, a respiratory system, an endocrine system, a reproductive system, an immune system and a communications system.
The book explains that the brain of the cell is in the outer membranes. Here the brain decides what chemicals to activate; such that different meanings are conveyed as an outgrowth of managing protective modes or growth. When we perceive bad things, the body goes into a protective mode. Conversely, good perceptions or vibrations result in good things happening.
McKim cites specific examples of how people lived or died by the placebo effect. In the end, the patient's belief system about being cured was the dispositive aspect in achieving the desired outcome. Although this statement is interesting, there is no scientific proof that the meaning we assign to diseases or the outcome of a disease is dispositive for every disease process.
For instance, a chronic diabetic may be able to achieve a reduction of the grossest symptoms through a long period of abstinence from sugar and excess
carbohydrates coupled with some medication. The health gurus such as Dr. Gary Null have achieved marvelous results with diabetics, as well as other chronic diseases and conditions.
In the ultimate scheme of things, a short to intermediate term regression of the grossest symptoms must be maintained by continuous changes in the diet; otherwise, the patient may regress to the original undesired state. At bottom, there is no cure for the condition; however, there is a definitive series of steps aimed at controlling the disease and the worst symptoms for as long as the patient complies with a strict dietary regimen.
