12 Self-Healing Ways to Heal Yourself

That Little Cut

Let’s think about that little cut, if you cut your finger, a month from now would the cut still be there? Or will it have healed up with mostly no sign of it ever being there?

Did you know that our bodies are programmed to self-heal?  Our bodies can heal without drugs and surgery.  Your body has within it an inborn (innate) ability to heal you.  Did you know that all living could heal themselves naturally?

We have compiled 12 Self-Healing Ways Our Bodies can use to Heal!

Self-Healing Ways Our Bodies can use to Heal


According to WebMD, if you are “sleeping”, you simply won’t see any detox desired effects. Aim for 7 to 8 hours every evening. Nighttime is the best and possibly the only time we allow our bodies to repair themselves.

A study suggests sleep clears our brains of damaging molecules associated with neurodegeneration.

If you require a little extra help to get a good night’s sleep, consider trying our natural and Melatonin free sleep-promoting supplement.  

According to Maiken Nedergaard, M.D., D.M.Sc., co-director of the Center for Translational Neuroscience at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York “Sleep changes the cellular structure of the brain. It appears to be a completely different state.


(2) FASTING   

Healthline confirms the connection between fasting and self-healing inflammatory reduction. Start your fast right before you go to bed. That means that, by the time you wake up, you will have already fasted for about 8 hours. Continue for another 8 hours and then eat until you sleep. Of course, you can drink water throughout.

According to researchers, fasting helps our bodies replace old and damaged cells - especially if the immune system has grown weak due to aging. Fasting helps in renewing, repairing and rejuvenating our immune systems. The study also revealed that fasting is actually effective for people suffering from cancer, where there is damage to cells due to chemotherapy.



Overproduction of free radicals can cause oxidative damage to biomolecules, (lipids, proteins, DNA), eventually leading to many chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, chronic inflammation, and stroke.

Antioxidants to the rescue – to counteract oxidative damage, the body produces an armoury of antioxidants to defend itself, your body's ability to produce antioxidants (its metabolic process) is controlled by your genetic makeup and influenced by your exposure to environmental factors, such as diet and smoking for example.

Turn on your webcam and shoot yourself a personal vlog that no one will ever see besides you. The likes of the University of Rochester are certain that journaling can help with mental health.

Claims that yoga can cure diseases like diabetes and thyroid are not backed by robust scientific evidence.  Yoga is now increasingly recognized as a way to prevent and manage diseases not cure diseases.

(4) FOOD

Stay away from sugar, a pro-inflammatory which can cause acne and premature aging due to hormonal imbalance. Get your omega-3 on through walnuts and flaxseed oil to hydrate the skin. Consider probiotics, which promote beneficial bacterial growth, detoxing you and your skin. Muscle & Fitness confirms the connection between food and recovery.



Drinking juices are known to cleanse the body. Cleveland Clinic mentions juices when discussing the pros of detoxing.

When you’re juicing, the juicer extracts all the nutrients from the fruits and vegetables for you, saving your body energy because it doesn’t have to break down all the food itself.  It can absorb the juice quickly and use its saved energy to heal and repair. 


An enema is the insertion of gas or liquid into the rectum, the lower part of the large intestine, usually to empty the bowels, healing the body. More on MedicalNewsToday.  Read all about Coffee Enemas For Liver Cleansing on our blog.

According to Personal Tao, A spiritual healing journey addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual toxins.  In this way, we eliminate toxins that undercut the soul. We then release motion that splits a person away from themselves.  Doing both allows a person to heal and become whole. 


Your body is brilliant at taking care of itself. Just surrender to it, and let it do its own thing to heal yourself.

Sometimes we don’t give our body enough time to heal on its own or the actual cause of the problem is still present, interfering with the healing process. When we develop health challenges we search for a pill or a potion to relieve our discomfort instead of locating the cause of the problem and removing the cause. Removing the actual cause, it allows our body an opportunity to heal naturally.

Your mind can be a powerful healing tool when given the chance If Harvard praises the placebo effect, it has to be worthwhile. A classic example to demonstrate the placebo effect is having an experiment with two groups of people. One group is given real pills while the other group is given fake pills. Usually, both groups claim that there is an effect.
