Greetings again from the darkness. Self-healing has been done in many futuristic and science fiction films, and in the recent BLADE RUNNER 2049 we watched Ryan Gosling instantaneously recover from severe wounds. Of course, most of us aren't replicants, so we follow along with what our doctors typically do treat the symptoms rather than the cause. Director Kelly Noonan Gores explores the theory that our bodies are quite capable of self-healing even when serious disease is involved.
The Mind-Body connection is explored through case studies and interviews. It's the intersection of science and the spiritual that forms the basis of the thoughts from experts such as Deepak Chopra (who seems to be in every other documentary these days), Marianne Williamson, Anita Moorjani, Bruce Lipton, Michael Beckwith and others. They subscribe to the notion that your thoughts, beliefs and emotions directly affect your health. Change your perspective and it allows your body to heal itself. We've always believed that illness is inevitable, but maybe it's time to question this.
It seems logical, and has been proved, that we can activate our immune system through a regimen of exercise, nutrition, and supplements. The film covers this and more, including stem cell research, alternative treatments, and the use of healers holistic energy for chronic pain and disease. As we would expect, the effects of stress are key to any film or study on healing. It's a known evil and the depth of its impact is only now beginning to be understood.
There are some interesting discussions regarding "fight or flight" and "rest and repair", and the belief that toxins are affecting newborns. These toxins likely lead to future disease and are the key to finding the cause, as opposed to treating the symptom. Director Noonan-Gores follows at least three people on their journeys of discovery and healing, providing hope that self-healing may become a true path for many.
