Think about it: when you cut yourself, is it the band aid that stops the bleeding? Of course not! It is your body’s incredible ability to repair itself. The band aid just keeps the wound (and your clothes) clean and prevents further infection. When you have a cold, is it the ibuprofen, or the Echinacea, or the extra vitamin C that heal you? Those things surely make your life less miserable, but they don’t heal you, they just assist you. It is again your body that does it. This is nothing new. It happens to animals and plants as well. Every living creature has the ability – the mechanism – to one way or another repair itself. Energy healing simply gives your body the ability to continue its natural function – including healing itself.
