Benefits Of Wellness

“It’s the soil, not the seed”


During a visit with my holistic podiatrist, he said something that really caught my attention.  He noted that Louis Pasteur (a French chemist and microbiologist) dedicated his whole life to the germs that cause disease and how to defeat them.  But shortly before his death he realized, "It’s the soil, not the seed."   This realization lead him to understand that the seed (disease) could only thrive and grow if the soil (body) provided the right environment.  In my quest to always move forward in life, I find this a profound concept.


How many times do we give way to negative thought  and find ourselves wondering why all of sudden we have a headache or our neck and back ache?  I am not saying that all pain comes from negative thought.  However, I am saying that thought is powerful.  If we, by habit, provide fertile ground for those thoughts to spring up, we just might find ourselves not only emotionally responding but physically as well.


Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, discovered that our cells have a life span, a limited number of cell divisions before they die.  Ageing and disease is thought to occur as a result of this process.  Dr. Blackburn studied the effects of negative emotions on the life span of a cell and found that excessive negative thought is linked to the shortening of that life span.  She also found the possibility exists that the practice of mindful thought and other forms of meditation could actually counter act the effects of excessive negative thought.


In short, a habit of positive thinking and meditation can have a direct effect on our over health and well-being by providing an inhospitable environment for seeds of pain and disease to take root.  "It's the soil, not the seed"!
